Those Who Can't Write Use Symbols



Yes, that is correct, instead of the word "scroll" our manual prefers clockwisearrow-mouse-counterclockwisearrow. Chances that anyone proofread it?

FURTHER COMPLAINTS:

Fuck you Lotus Notes.





Note: neither the name of the sender nor the name of the recipient is "eat me". On the other hand finding a Merle Travis guitar solo is better than finding Insane Clown Posse.

This from a guy whose manual includes "Y'all should read this important note."

The workplace sucks, technologically speaking.

Between Microsoft Office/Outlook, Lotus Notes and SAP, it seems enterprise software vendors were well ahead of the whole hate america/socialism curve.

I don't know what it's going to take to bring businesses over to the Linux/OSS/Cloud model. Hell, if FREE doesn't do it, I'm pretty sure that "it works better" ain't gonna be a compelling argument either...

WHen things go wrong it is generally more satisfying to blame Bill Gates than anonymous programmers

The Lotus Notes "eat me" search came after I had looked for a very long identifying number and got one hit that was a completely different number. I mean, what the fuck use is that? But I couldn't post that so I searched again for FUCK YOU and it turned out that I had sent a lot of emails with FUCK YOU in them so the point was not made. Happily, EAT ME returns a single result that is not EAT ME at all and therefore the post is wonderfully clear and funny.

Our office just got upgraded with the "new and improved" Lotus Notes. I can live with most anything, once I get used to it and have figured out workarounds for all the crap that doesn't really work well or at all. But I HATE it when companies keep upgrading stuff and they need to make it MUCH different in order to justify why they upgraded said program in the first place. At that does is make me have to figure out a whole new set of workarounds.

It appears to me that the new Lotus does not let you select a bunch of messages so you can delete an entire bunch "en masse". I used to just let all the e-mail reside in my in-box until I would get a warning message, and then go and delete everything that I didn't need anymore. Now, it appears that has just become much more difficult to do.

Technology is great. Designers of technology can bite me. Stuff never seems to work the way I would like it to.

It doesn't "work", per se; it just holds yer Atman

mikey, the masses of MCSE techs have no incentive to migrate away from Microsoftian solutions.

One of the most brilliantly evil tactics MS has ever used.
