2F, and anyone else who has avatar interest;

If you want to see the full sized image of someone's avatar, do the following;

Right click on the image and select "Open image in a new tab" or whatever similar option you have. This will bring up a new tab with a thumbnail of the user's avatar. From there, look at the URL of the image. You should see something similar to this;

Quote:

http://wizardofvegas.com/images/forum/9833/thumb/IMG0991.JPG



The part that you're interested in, is "/thumb". If you remove this portion of the URL, you're left with this:

You will then have the full resolution of the uploaded picture.

There a bounty on them hogs? I have quite a bit of mercenary history, and it's gotta be better than slingin' mail in December rain. Totally self sufficient, just show me the property boundaries and I'll be back in a week.



Are you a mailman now?

Whatever haopened to your casino gig. I thought you had a pretty prominent position. There's gotta be a story worth sharing now that we are some time from the end.

Nice link to the cats. Our cats are like that in spirit, they just aren't as good looking. Just 2 sisters, plain black cats, in league with the devil....

Since May or so. My hat's off to BlueEagle. Dunno about him but I just put in an 85hr work week, and that's with a day off for Thanksgiving. I'm looking at 90+ hours for this week, possibly over 100, and other than Xmas day and New Year's, I don't have a day off until February. As if I needed another reason to hate the holidays ><

Meh, not all that spectacular a story. To put it simply, the rez is very political (at least out here). I've worked for the Nation gov for 10+ years, I've seen it all. Just the most asinine appointments based completely on political ties and cronyism with no basis in skills or education. My branch within the casino historically has been separate from all that and was made that way intentionally so. While it was a branch of the gov, it was autonomous. The way it was set up, there could be no political influence and life was pretty sweet.

It was sort of a perfect storm scenario. Just the right people in the right places at the right times, and boom, it all came falling down. Political appointees gained a foothold and many of the upper level professionals were ousted. I went from correcting $9mm errors and revealing $40mm frauds to being sent on wild goose chases doing entry level HR work, all politically motivated. It was absurd. The upper level stuff I pursued on my own was repeatedly left on a desk to rot, as no crony had the ability to grasp it. It began to kill my spirit. Then the hijinks started with flooding every level of the operation with more cronies, and that was the ball game. We were the gatekeepers to integrous gaming; you can't have corruption in our own actions and my integrity is not for sale. That was that.

Of course, I suppose I may have fell a little too far into my ego, thinking that if I rose that high in the ranks without trying, I should be able to really hit one out of the park if I tried. No big deal to tell the job to pound sand, right? Look how special I am! 15 months and a near financial catastrophe later, I'm slinging mail 80hrs a week for ~$16/hr in a NY winter.

I'd say I learned my lesson, but I don't think it's quite over yet =p

Got a haircut today cashing out some of my points on my card. Got a free shampoo. Now I feel great until my hair grows back again.

Thanks face for the story. I remember you saYing you never wanted to work in the casino again. At least you fell on your feet eventually. You will have government pension and health care. I also thought letter carriers made better money than that.

ThaT is funny. I was sad when he died. He had just started that reality show with him and Anthony. I thought it was interesting.

Interestingly enough, he grew up about 10 miles from here and my mother in law went to school with him
