Posts I've Made
Posted 26 Feb 2015I've spent most of my morning avoiding work and cropping scanned #TBT photos for my boyfriend's mother.
Posted 25 Feb 2015My day (because I need to vent and Facebook is tired of hearing about it)...
8:30AM - Email. "I tried uploading these files to the website and it tells me the file type is not supported. They're PDF files just like you told me they had to be in order to put them up there and link them on the site. I can send them to you if you want."
8:45AM - Email response to my response asking for the PDF files. "I don't know why you need them. I know what I'm doing. Just fix the problem so I can upload them."
9:00AM - Email response to my response asking, again, for the PDF files. "Why do you need them? Why am I not trusted to do my job? Why do you never believe me when I tell you something? Why can't you just fix the problem?"
11:00AM - Email. "I don't know what you did to the archive page, but none of this year's archive is listed and you didn't post ANY of the information from 2001-2013. I know we have a full archive going all the way back to 1999! Where's the rest of it?"
12:30PM - Email response to my response informing user that I haven't touched the archive page since the site went live 3 years ago. "You HAD to do it. No one else can access it. I've tried getting in there, but it's got a picture of a lock by the file and won't let me edit it. You keep me locked out if it, so you can't tell me you didn't do it. You need to fix it NOW."
1:00PM - Email response to my response informing user the file had been unlocked. "I'm in it now, but we're still missing 12 years of archives! You still haven't explained what happened to them!"
2:00PM - Email response from previous conversation. "I've attached the files you wanted so badly. I know you think I'm an idiot, but I know how to do things."
This was all the same person.
Why was the file locked, you ask?
Because she checked it out at 2:06PM on February 15, 2015, and never bothered to check it back in. Basically, SHE somehow deleted 12 years worth of the archive and tried to pin it on me.
Why wouldn't the PDF files upload, you ask?
Because they weren't PDFs, they were PPTXs. Because she's not an idiot. She knows how to do things.
Just finished a phone call where I was berated by her boss because she told him I deleted his precious archive and refused to fix the file upload issue. So, yeah, that was fun.
Posted 25 Feb 2015Today, I'm playing catch-up as I have spent the last two days home with a head cold from hell.
I feel like the alien in a pool of its own snot from Flight of the Navigator.
Posted 25 Feb 2015After touting the virtues of my Motorola Razr M earlier in this thread, I have come back to inform you that it has passed on to another realm of cellular existence, an alternate, ethereal plane of technological oneness. It did so thanks to a seriously borked boot sector...exactly seven days after my two year contract had completed.
So I went to the Verizon store and the dude hooked me up with an HTC Desire 612. 48 hours later, I'm about to take it back and shove up his ass. As I posted on Facebook yesterday:
QuoteThe salesman told me it had 16gb of internal storage (coupled with my 16gb SD card is plenty). In actuality, it has 8gb of internal storage.
The salesman told me that, unlike the Razr M, the HTC Desire allowed the user to uninstall unwanted bloatware apps. Negative. When first booted, it had 3 relatively small bloatwares. No biggie. Last night, it demanded I install a buttload of Verizon bloat and would not allow me to continue without installing the apps. So I installed them.
I spent quite a lot of time last night setting up my screens with the widgets and app links I wanted available. Today, it insisted I download an über buttload of HTC bloatware that I couldn't skip past (none of the VZW or HTC bloat can be removed, by the way).
After all the crap I don't want was installed, there is LESS THAN 1 gb of available device storage. And after the HTC bloat required reboot, all my screens were restored to factory default and I have to waste another evening setting everything back the way I want it.
Also, the battery life is crap. If you intend to be anywhere without a charger nearby for more than an hour, expect to have a dead phone.
My final determination: avoid this one at all costs.
Posted 18 Feb 2015gimme a break i was sober and down when I wrote this.
Sooo.... you're telling us that you're generally NOT sober. Nallnaom... the drunkard with an unpronounceable name.
Cheat sheet for everyone else:
When Nallnaom says.... 'darn,' he's sober. When he says 'damn it,' he's drunk.
When Nallnaom says.... 'oh poo!,' he's sober. When he says 'fuck this,' he's knackered.
When Nallnaom says.... 'number two,' he's sober. When he says 'shit,' he's tanked.
The last one must be quite a change for poor no2pencil... he's not used to sober men calling his name, as Danny's always blitzed.
