Part four in a series. Part three is here.
Here's a new twist I found on customer service. A certain satellite television provide advertises on their web site that they have "Better Customer Service for All" and on their contact page it says "Superior Customer Service". So can you guess what it is like to call them?
OpenID looks like something worth investigating. I have signed up for a free OpenID with Videntity, and I will use their server to make this website function as my own personal OpenID. There is a Drupal module under development (but not yet upgraded to 5.1) so I hope that my site will become OpenID enabled in the near future.
I write software for a living. Sometimes the developer of a software program can spend years adding features to software and nevertheless miss the one glaring omission that almost everyone who has used the software has noticed. I worked for one company on a software project ( that shall remain nameless ) where there seemed to be a single serious flaw that was being ignored. Instead everyone was busy with other pet projects. I asked people why this thing wasn't top priority and was told to get busy on other things. I asked again and again and finally just gave up.
The website has been installed on a new server. Instead of just copying it over I rebuilt the website with more CSS and no tables. If there is anyone out there who reads this stuff, please bear with me as the posts were copied over one by one. Most comments are gone and trackbacks are not (yet) implemented. And I'll post some new entries soon, of course.
Maybe God was punishing me last Friday. It wasn't Friday the 13th. At least not on any calendars with which I'm familiar. And I don't think I've offended any witch doctors or voodoo queens. Sometimes I think that when I have extra cash, my house or my car can smell it. Still that doesn't explain everything that went south.
As an entrepreneur I learned to hate these words. But I never thought I'd hear them in my home from my kids. Yet my son said this the other day when asked to do something. Apparently what I asked him to do was something his sister usually does ergo it wasn't his job.
