    Once upon a time at the retail store, they had two-way radios available for us lowly cartmen which were on the same wavelength as the radios which everyone else in the store uses, which was "good" in the sense that we were able to be paged by anyone and communication was easy. Over time, there came to be a dearth of functioning radios and it came to the point where we didn't have any to use at all. An attempt was made to use off-the-shelf walkies which are sold in the store, but that concept ...

    With all the work I'm doing on translating kanji from Gal Gun, I'm wondering if I should just go full nuts on it and try to translate all of the text in the game. There's a finite number of lines to the game and it is much less than any RPG, so I guess I could get to it eventually? Eh, something to think about. Honestly, I shouldn't have lost this habit and kept replaying games which I had this whole time.

    Regardless, I don't have a lot of time here before I have to tend to other ...

    I haven't played a game in Japanese in some time, so I've resolved to do now with Gal Gun what I used to do years ago, in that I'd have a notepad nearby and take the time to write out kanji and look things up if I don't know what it is from memory. It grinds the progress of the game to a halt but this is one of the few things I ever did right to learn the very little which I do know to begin with, so it's just as well to try to do things right this time as well. Sure enough, once I sit down with ...

    So a few weeks ago I mentioned that I purchased some RAM for use in the PC of one of my wife's coworkers, on her basis of saying that the machine was "running out of virtual memory". Just recently she informed us that her PC had lost all of the files on her hard drive and that it was telling her that the drive couldn't be accessed. Sometime between my putting the RAM in and April 15, she found a way to be infected with one of those bullshit anti-virus trojans which make all of the files ...

    My wife has been on a bit of Lumines kick lately, on the PS3 specifically. She's on vacation so she has some time to play that here and there. We played 2P versus for a bit, which we only did once or twice before, and I quickly remembered our primary annoyance with it - you can't just have a new song played with each new battle or choose Random or make a playlist or anything. In 2P, you keep playing with the same song until you exit out of the mode, reconfirm that two players are playing, and then ...

    I had an estate income tax return to do today, pretty much immediately after I returned home from retail work and had dinner. Notice the phrasing there, because that is different from a mere estate tax return, which is filed one time on a different form and only applies if, as of 2012, the estate is worth at least $5 million at the time of valuation. Independent of that is an estate income tax return, which occurs every year for the income which the estate receives. Having not filed a Form 1041 ...

    I have successfully evaded the rain today. The downpour was very temporary but it was enough to give everything a good soaking, and while that happened I was high and dry (well, the latter at least). I have adjusted the remainder of the Excise Tax forms for the 2012 year and should be ready to start making tests soon. From the looks of it, I might be able to copy the majority of content from last year's outright - which I won't do, but rather cite heavily for reference to ensure that what I create ...

    Five stockmen scheduled. Opener is a no call no show. Second is me. Third is the guy who has stopped coming to work and is possibly actively trying to be fired. Fourth has successfully applied for transfer to another store and will be gone in a week. Last guy continues to be scheduled despite injury. The machine died an hour before my shift ended. Another new helper sent out with me, and within the span of hours he goes from completely fresh to the job to saying that he "wants to slap people" ...

    I played some Gal Gun just a bit ago, and I chose to do so then because I did so last night in the early hours of the morning and the noise from using a gun attachment with the Move controller forced my wife to turn the fan on so that she could remain asleep. I guess my masturbation noises weren't the problem after all! Haha! Have fun getting that mental image out of your head. Well, trust me, it'd be worse if you knew what I looked like. But you already know, because I admittedly own Gal Gun and ...

    Today's Lesson is that it is difficult to find a bank's RTN when you only have eight of the nine requisite digits, nor the bank's specific name. Managed to put the Form 720 revision under wraps, so that means I should be able to get the other two forms (6627 and 6197) under wraps pretty much within a few days, because I don't think those forms were revised, and they would take much less effort to update if they have been. Next thing I need to do are few State returns and I'll be all caught up. ...

    One of the forms I set up a while ago is 1065 Schedule K1, which is used by the partners of a partnership to report income. Upon actually submitting the test return data now, it appears that I don't have to attach the document at all and I could have saved myself the work by not creating the form at all. Oh well! The IRS submitter client is also giving me all sorts of fits and I had to restart the program a few times just to get the tests through.

    Frustrating morning. I have two clients whom I want to file, one is much easier than another, and in both cases I have some information which I will want to confirm and establish before I push things through. Despite several calls, I never get any response. A $20 rebate I'm looking to get from my sound card was declined because the Amazon receipt which I printed was not specifically an Invoice or Tracking Number, so it has been declined. It has the order date, it has the order number, it has the ...

    Pizza. Pizza still tastes good. Not that I foresee my opinion of that changing, but it's nice to be able to enjoy some damned pizza every now and then. I say this because we try not to have it very often, because it is an expense which we try to keep in check. Glass bottle Coke also tastes good, and is nicer to purchase rarely, and is easier to justify its extra expense when the purchase is infrequent.

    Two co workers called off today. I am 0% surprised by this. They chose as good of a day as any to do it, though, since the customer volume was indeed significantly reduced. I need to pick up on Form 720 work soon - I didn't have much of any chance to continue it at all yesterday. I'm surprised that I'm so thrown off in my free time just for spending an evening dinner with family. I didn't even stay that long. In other work news, I need to write this here: I must remember to apply duct tape to the ...

    While the holiday is Easter Sunday, it is Easter Saturday which is of more concern to those of us who work at a retail store. It does seem that everyone made a point to shop yesterday and today to ensure that they were able to celebrate the actual holiday tomorrow. At least, that's what I hope. Meanwhile, for my particular station, one co worker called off, another is back on injured reserve (so to speak), a third is officially Not Giving A Shit because the job is too far away from where he currently ...
