embarrassment -_-!

So today, in a routine presentation in a routine meeting, I was showing the team our newest test tools and how it can help them simplify testing. I opened boss's brand new laptop, opened internet explorer and typed in the address... connecting..connecting... Nothing. My hand is starting to sweat a little and I have no idea why it wouldn't work since it just worked before i walked in the meeting (classic example of Murphy's Law). So I pulled up remote desktop and connected to my machine because everyone is staring it at me and it is scary. Finally it connected and my desktop showed up, immediately the entire room burst out in a collective "OMG" as they gazed with amazement at my awesomely cluttered desktop. You will see what i mean in a moment. Then they started all to read out the icons I have, so here I was standing in the middle of the room mentally kicking myself for doing this and mentally trying to think if I have anything bad on my desktop (well I don't really but you get paranoid anyway). Then suddenly one guy said "what is that Paris Hilton file", then everybody went 'oooo'. I yelled out "it is her new CD, it is her new CD!!!!!!", and everyone was like "that is even worse!!!' -_-!!!!!! (incidentally, Snoopy this is all your fault! hahha). So after everyone thoroughly inspected everything on my desktop I was able to move on to my presentation with my face completely red hahaha.

screeny of my desktop ,see in 1600x1200 it really ins't that bad!! i still have 3/4 of the space!

OMG @ your desktop... I can only imagine what your UI would have looked like if you played WoW...

What is FFVersusXI? =D

Looks like you might have hit the nail on the head, Kung!

Velius said...

Well, unintentional comedy is always good. Now, you can listen to all your guilty pleasures without anyone criticizing since they already know!!

Haha looking at the desktop more closely... lolol so many things to point out:

1) hijackthis.log: Perfect with the HijackThis.exe with dynamite icon.
2) kissing_you-...: Zip file of wonders no doubt.
3) explodingsh...: Picture of Velius trying to get that tank.
4) foo.txt: So classic.
5) wow.jpg: World of Warcraft.
6) blah.blah: Probably the most interesting file of all!
7) machinecop...txt: New Robocop script, no doubt.

Your icons are like the Borg, and resistance is futile. Even sorta cubelike arrangment...

HAHAHA, almost everyone points out the kissing_you file. I guess that just sparks the imagination lol. It is actually the song Kissing You by Desree. very pretty. yes I rather like blah.blah myself ;)
As for the WOW.jpg, I totally forgotten about it, I have submitted this slogan as part of last year's GameFest ad campaign. it says "Finally Meet Your WoW buddies" hahaha

Velius said...

I remember your telling me about that slogan. Didn't you win the contest with that one?

Impressive desktop! Since we are all scrutinizing the icons, may I ask what are the 4 letter vowels? =)

I feel ya though. Every time I setup my laptop for a presentation, I make sure my IM clients are all off, google desktop is off and all excess icons are tucked away into one single "Miscellaneous" folder. The misc folder is where my true desktop resides. :)

moonfleck said...

LOL, this is actually even more embarrassing about the 4 letter vowels. the Clay Aiken fanclub had this contest that want the fans to guess sthe 4 letter acronym of his latest album given some clues. So I wrote this c# program that enumerates permutations and stuff =P, I didn't win hahahha

Kabitzin said...

That is pretty much the nerdiest fangirliest thing I have ever heard... What was the correct answer?

moonfleck said...

LOL i know right :)

It was A Thousand Different Ways (ATDW)
