Halloween Pumpkin

For Halloween this year every department at work was asked to carve or decorate a pumpkin. Since I’m in IT I thought I’d take the task of decorating our pumpkin with something IT related that would scare the crap out of everyone. Most of our end users are actually Windows users, so this pumpkin should be especially scary to them.

I introduce the B.S.O.Dkin, yes it’s a B.S.O.D pumpkin

B.S.O.D Pumpkin.

B.S.O.D Pumpkin.

I’d like to say it looks better in person, but it really doesn’t. I don’t really have an artsy knack for carving or painting pumpkins or I could have done something a lot better.

I guess my “Halloween Costume” is a blue Mexican wrestlers mask, blue t-shirt, and jeans to complete the B.S.O.D theme. With as much hate as I’ve been giving Microsoft recently I’m going to have to keep my fingers crossed for no kernel panics. Karma might bite me.

Back Again

I had to leave town last Tuesday for a family funeral, and therefore did not make any updates to my blog. While I had a long drive that I could have wrote some posts, its sometimes nice to just take a break. I didn’t even update or check my Twitter account.

In the upcoming days I’ll have some more blog posts written. Its almost Halloween again, and I guess its been almost a year (maybe two) since I introduced Aaron but he never made a post. Perhaps I’ll convince him to write one since I’ve been helping him out with his blog BackwoodsHorror.com (and I just linked to him.) I do however have some guest posts from some one called Dave from the good old Internet’s that I’ll be posting for your reading pleasure. If you’d like to write for TheLinuxBlog, just send them to me by e-mail (owen–A T–thelinuxblog.com) or send me a message and I’ll create you a user account.

As always I appreciate user feedback and more content to publish would be awesome! Thanks for all of your contributions,

- Owen.
