I have been asked why I haven't posted another awesomeness yet. Friends, you cannot force the awesomeness. You have to wait for it to slink out from the shadows. Sure, silly things happen on a day to day basis. But true awesomeness comes along only once every few weeks.

I will, however, relent. This one is awesomeness from many months ago...

I got a call one day from a doctor's secretary saying that the doctor was having problems with his monitor and that it was sideways. That was the first time I had heard that complaint and there was no way I was going to try to talk through this one on the phone. I had to see it for myself. So I walk down to the doc's office. As I walk in he pronounces, "So what do you think of that!" Sure enough, the windows logon screen was sideways...up and down. I, of course, wanted to just turn the monitor on its side and walk away but I restrained myself. It was quite humorous though. I logged in...sideways...and made my way to the display settings...sideways. Your natural inclination is to turn your head to the side so you can move the mouse not like a gimp. But then you look like a gimp for real. So I fought the urge and manage to get into the advanced video settings...sideways. For some weird reason, this particular brand of Intel video card lets you rotate the screen in increments of 90 degrees. Seems silly but maybe people like mounting their monitors on the ceiling. I don't know. At any rate I set the stupid thin back to zero degrees and we were back in business. How the doctor managed to change the advanced video card settings though, I don't know. Awesomeness.
