It has been a busy couple of days, here, my son's girlfriend's father and stepmother were here for her graduation. Keith came over and boiled crawfish.
Had a PSD#4, Brick House, and I think one other.

On Monday walking them around the French Quarter of New Orleans, stopped at Jibaro88's ( I THINK that is Armando's CW handle) Crescent City Cigar Shop, had an Elogio Maduro belicoso. Really good cigar, but there was a plug near the cut. I cut it twice, then had to dig in there with my little pocket knife before I could really get a nice draw.

As soon as I finish this post, I'm going to enjoy a Perdomo 20th Anniversary Torpedo.

Doing Laundry, activating a new phone and smoking baby backs. As soon as I dispatch Sprint, I am going to have a Xirvivor robusto maduro out on the deck. Just need to tend the fire until the girls get home. Then, all hell is going to break loose. 2 final exams, two movie reviews (Streetcar Named Desire and Forrest Gump).
Thank the Lord There are only school days left and 2 early dismissals. I'm almost as burned out as the girls and I don't even have to turn anything in.

And, you know, I was part of the first generation of people to have to use and improve advanced technology. I had been in the field since I was 8 years old and wrote my first program on Hollerith cards on an IBM mainframe in 1976. I am far from being a Luddite about advancing technology.

Advanced technology is like what Gandhi said about Western Civilization: "It's a good idea." Rarely are the seeming most basic functions of getting "advanced technology" to work properly are an increasingly human-based problem to solve, but what the coders think is streamlined is like Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. The only way the freaking model works is if you test it on engineers that don't have the perspective or even capacity to think like a regular user.

Like Twain once said: "You cannot engineer a fool-proof system because fools are so ingenious!"

Well, increasingly so, the fools are increasingly more tech-savvy and less willing to put up with the "idiot-proof" bullshit.

Technology-based "customer service" these days is about as useful as a wooden leg with a kick-stand. It's useful every now and then, but most of the time, it's more in the way.
