(Some Guy)   Right wing IT consultant denying service (and apparently the right to live in a free society) to Obama supporters? Why not just point that muzzle loader at your own foot, dude?   (starlancs.com) divider line 169

When I look for IT consulting services, I look for a guy with a website straight from Geocities circa 1996, including multiple iFrames, stock photos from the 90s and a nav scheme best described as "fark it, here's a spot".

As I said in the Going Galt thread: You have to be irreplaceable to make this work.

Ward Dorrity might have been irreplaceable 20 years ago. Now there are literally a hundred thousand people who can do what he does. But at least he'll be broke and self-righteous about it
 
2012-11-08 01:51:57 PM  
Wow. That website is AWESOME.
 
2012-11-08 01:53:29 PM  
I wouldn't let this guy near my systems, let alone my customers. I know the type, though: I can guarantee you that this guy knows what's best in virtually every situation, and is 110% certain of himself, all the time.

Yikes.
 
2012-11-08 01:54:20 PM  
That is a thought-provoking, informative, intelligently written website.

/I ALMOST made it through that with a straight face. Almost.
 
2012-11-08 01:54:53 PM  
I'm guessing he's currently unsuccessful and blames the "Obama economy." Now he can continue to be unsuccessful but claim he's willing to take the hit for his "principles." Either way, he never has to admit he sucks at what he does. The party of personal responsibility indeed.
 
2012-11-08 01:56:01 PM  
Maybe it's a satirical site that's going over my head.

Not necessarily true. Pandering can be an effective marketing tool.

Wouldn't you believe it? My wireless router just became unplugged! How will I ever find anyone with the talent and drive to plug it back in? I apologize, Ward. I swear, I didn't realize just how critical you are to the functioning of society. Please don't leave for Galt's Gulch! I beg you! Plug my router back in!

Too late. He's in Spirit Lake, Idaho. It's right next door to Galt's Gulch.

Going Galt is the stupidest f*cking thing in the world.

Not because of the underlying philosophy behind it, but because the nimrods who would actually do it are either 1) delusional halfwits like this who won't be missed, 2) too greedy and obsessed with status to withdraw.

Oh holy hell, I don't even do the actual designing of webpages, but even I could shiat out a better looking webpage than that. The templates in dreamweaver look worlds better.
 
2012-11-08 02:15:22 PM  
Even better the BBB button on his site goes here http://www.thelocalbbb.com/
which is not a valid domain

Relatively Obscure: Wow. That website is AWESOME.


His use of the 90's era despair.com images in his IT consulting section is totally tubular.

$10 says he used his 'constitutional NRA freedom discount' on procuring those images.

Jesus, and tables for the layout. It's like he hasn't seen a web page design since 1997.

Photo caption on the "Solutions for Homeschoolers" page:

It has been my experience that most "counselors" were simply trying to cure themselves.
 
2012-11-08 02:45:50 PM  
I love how the reaction in this thread is how awful the guy's web site looks, not that he's essentially stating that he's going to go out and start killing Obama supporters.

Funny, I don't see any military service. Guess he was just too busy to sign up.

That website is horribly designed, if you can even call it that. A lot of broken links and it looks really amateur.

And we're done here.... also in the about us he states he worked on SQL Server development at Microsoft in 1999 - this would explain a lot - also why SQL Server sucks donkey balls.

It is surely no afternoon delight.

I see he's also a Project Appleseed "rifleman" -- they're the folks who believe that good marksmanship = good citizenship

Because he isn't going to. He lives in Militia world, Idaho. There aren't a lot of Obama supporters around and the ones there are aren't typically "out". He's going to shoot at some cans in the woods that he Named "Marx, Freud and Soetoro" and he's going to be really annoying at the bar for a few weeks.

I'm thinking "Michael Bolton at the start of 'Office Space' when he was blasting gangsta rap, but rolled up his windows and locked his door when he saw actual black people."

Wait... his career started in 1994 and he still calls it Memphis State (as opposed to University of Memphis)

I seriously wonder if I knew this toolbag. I was an Objectivist for a brief period in college (hey, we all go through an experimental time) but I left that stupidity behind once I got into the real world and figured out how very contrary to reality the philosophy is.

/yeah, CSB, but still relevant

If you listen more closely, it just sounds like masturbation.

Give him a taste of the back of your invisible hand.

Weaver95: I should try and steal his customers.


I'm pretty convinced that despite what he says about what he does -that he is nothing more than a flim-flam artist. His clients are rubes that know nothing about wireless networks (in this case wifi);

This is an actual picture from his website:

www.starlancs.com

So the level of rube that he sells to is slightly above the "moron level" probably old people from his church that buy some cheap internet-pad device from Costco and can't get it working. 


But hey, if you can find any of his customers more power to you. Just beware of the drool.
