The word of the day is:


The word is "authentification" after years of hearing it and seeing it I am gonna finally bitch about it! I am guilty of using non-words and typos... but I am just typing to type. Not building the interface for webmail (see image above) or writing technical documents.


Saying words correctly when they need to be is important. True story:


I had pneumonia in my teens and had to be hospitalized for it. I was in the ER for several hours before I was stable enough to be put in a room. When I was situated in my room, I asked the nurse, "Can you tell me which direction my window is facing, I am very disoriented." The nurse, very excitedly thanked me for the proper use of the word. She explained, "There are so many times I hear people say 'disorientated' and I want to correct them but I do not. It's one of those little pet peeves of mine, I am very impressed that you were able to use the right word."


So seeing authentification makes me think of disorientated.... Look: go here http://encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/ now type in 'authentification' it automatically redirects you to 'authentication'


I found this at http://dag.wieers.com/blog/authentification-does-not-exist : Authentification does not exist... Submitted by dag on Wed, 2008/12/31 - 04:39 One thing that really disturbs me in professional documents is the use of authentification (or in Dutch: authentificatie). This word does not exist in English or in Dutch, it is a mix up of authentication and identification, but still this mistake is made all over the IT world in Europe. Although the rule is very easy: when the verb is to authenticate it becomes authentication when the verb is to identify/to certify it becomes identification/certification The verb to authentify or to authentificate simply do not exist in English.... So don't use it :-)Authentification does not exist...

Okay... end rant. Just had to get that off my chest..... to make matters worse a co-worker even said that authentification is a word... till I showed him it's not. It's a bastardization of authentication..... anyways that's that.

This is why I don't make plans.


Here I am trying to accomplish things on my computer.... Things I have put off to no end because computers are the devil. And the devil wants my soul! Well I decided to make a plan, my plan was to run needed updates and try to check out the latest and greatest from Microsoft.... well guess what? Something didn't work as planned... I am used to getting the 'something went wrong' message. Everything goes wrong for me sometimes.... now if I plan something it won't work too! Sonofabitch! Okay well, now back to procrastinating to avoid my snarky angsty computer from being a poop hole more.

Seriously, if I die....

It might be my crazy next door neighbor. So always check there first if I am mysteriously found murdered... For reals! First I will need to explain, give some background on my mystery neighbor and how I think he is quite unstable and an angry bitter sexually frustrated man.

Background: Once upon a time I used to be in a special class in high school. This special class was for kids that had some issues adjusting to social norms. Okay okay it was for severely emotionally disturbed but what ever... just listen. Anyways there was this horrible birdlike tall person that you could have pegged for homo based on his mannerisms (I know I am making generalizations). Well he wasn't homo just totally socially awkward. He had a total complex, the guy thought he could do no wrong and had to judge everyone based on what he believed from the bible. Because of course that's what the bible says to do right, right? Of course! (Religious freaks are scary.... more so than the atheist freaks) Anyways he didn't want to be looked at or touched or whatever cause you know he was off his rocker. Plus he probably thought god would be mad at him for talking to heathens. Whatever... Jump ahead a few years after high school: I run into him at a grocery store and politely I said hello and introduced my significant other at the time. And he starts in on how he knows we are sinners and that we have sex and how horrible we are. So I quickly depart and continue my shopping... A while down the road I read in the paper that he stabbed his own mother. STABBED!!! I mean wtf?! Who stabs their own mother? I hate my mom and would never stab her. People are so twisted....
