More Things [Jul. 8th, 2008|10:45 pm]

More Things Which Are Annoying:

* Pimples that are developed enough to hurt, but not enough to be able to deal with them.

* Realizing that 90% of what I accomplished at work this afternoon was sending email.

* Vista not recognizing my camera (which is old) and Canon not having a driver I can download for it. Buncha lame-ass WANKERS!

If sending email is annoying, then... um, I'm in trouble.

A big part of my job(s) is sending email. I try to make it fun, useful, and efficient, and I have tool for so doing. Drop me a line if you want to discuss.

It's not so much that it's inherently annoying, it's just that all the diplomacy gets tiring, and it doesn't feel as much like I've actually accomplished something as when I've written code or done lots of fancy data-massaging...

But I'd love to hear your thoughts about how to make it fun.

Would you like to borrow my Win98?

That would probably recognize the camera, but not the rest of the computer...

Yeah, apparently my printer isn't supported by Vista or HP because it's a mere eight years old!

Yeah, but that's like 2048 in computer years.

That's really pathetic about the camera. Isn't that one of those things that is supposed to "just work"?

It would almost certainly "just work" if my camera were newer. But nobody makes money off writing drivers for old hardware.

But it's more that if it's only 8 yrs ago, it should still work by traditional PnP stuff. *sighs*.

it probably works on the Mac
