Techy Fun: When I ask you to do something, do it

As I’m in the process of slowing shutting down other sites I’ve worked on (due to time constraints), I’m reposting them here. Here’s an article from “Behind The Frontline” which was going to be a cross between I Work With Fools, Worse Than Failure and Dilbert.

Categories: Just Plain Dumb and Gee, I Wonder Why?. Author: Frank.

We recently had a piece of equipment which when I plugged it in, it fused the power supply turning all the electricity to the building off. Anyway, I have a look at it and replace its own fuse. Just before I plugged it in again, I asked everybody to make sure they’ve saved their work. Everybody says “OK” so I plug it back in and it turns the power off again (obviously faulty then). Then somebody moans “But I didn’t save my work…”

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
