Don't know why I find this funny..but everyone is bitching about the lack of response from Userland, calling them names, etc...there are only two guys working on the problems and they both have lives outside of Userland and their jobs. I realize its frustrating as all hell when the response that comes back sounds like a dotcom techno babble that makes no sense to anyone but the person that wrote it or possibly another system admin that totally understands his frustration on why the damn servers keep going down and probably in the middle of the night when he's sleeping..they need to hire another person to help them with the basic day to night system admin stuff..for example the discussion board, the basic newbie troubleshooting and questions, someone that uses Radio frequently and sees the problems happening. The question is should I email Dave and tell him..hire me, I can do the job? I want to be a radio rat (but in a good sense) :)
I've been wanting to comment about this for the last couple of days, but if I posted everything I wanted to say, I'd have 5 full posts' worth of material. So I'll just post some brief comments.
1. "...bitching about the lack of response from Userland" - see this post.
2. "...why the damn servers keep going down and probably in the middle of the night when he's sleeping" - This reminded me of the saying, "A watched pot never boils." Servers almost always go down when they're not being watched. (That probably falls under Murphy's Law too.)
3. "...should I email Dave and tell him..hire me, I can do the job?" - Yes, absolutely!!
4. "I want to be a radio rat (but in a good sense) :)" - Me too, Julie....me too. Though I think I'll have to settle for being just a rogue radio rat.
