It pissed down rain today. Black skies, no daylight til at least 8:00am. Took three cups of coffee just to get out of the house.
No accidents on the way to New Jersey. The first time in a month without a jam up. I'll take it where I can get it.
Key card. Parkade. Elevator. Home Sweet Cubicle.
Boot pc. Hit the ladies.
Aaaaargh....the bathroom smells like crotch rot.
Not that I have any experience with that – it's what I expect it to smell like: BO and barnyard - with a hint of rotting flesh. Usually it's just pooey, but this was definitely not last night's chicken vindaloo.
Spent an HOUR on the phone with our business people, deciding how to make a screen more user friendly. Bear in mind that our users are also our employees, so they're supposed to be trained, reasonable people with more than just space between their ears.
The offending item causing all the fuss? The “save” button. It was confusing people.
My suggestion was that, at some point, you have to let people make mistakes and they should be held accountable for them. Why are we treating them like idiots?
Or we can make the system completely self sufficient. We wont need humans then.
Maybe we'll just hire lemurs. Evil lemurs.
