step away from the technology

okay ... so with my favorite site being unavailable in the middle of the afternoon on my day off ... I am stepping away from the computer... don't look at art ... DO art ...

the god's must be crazy ...

my art friends ... I can't get to my art friends!!!

We're having huge problems with our ATCsForAll site. I'm having withdrawl symptoms! It has made me realize that (unfortunately) I may have to use facebook contact more with my art friends. I would rather keep them separate (for the most part) ...

Hopefully, the moderators and "powers that be" can get the system upgraded before we lose contact with all those folks. Thankfully, I have a hard copy address book for those whom I have traded with, but .... I have no "regular" emails for these people ...

Interesting how these little things become a huge part of your life. Art should be freeing, not frustrating.

I just don't get it

We try to set up "events" to drive business. The company sends out emails that undermine our efforts. We are only allowed to offer a certain amount off. Then the company comes behind and says they'll get more ...
I just don't get it. I just don't.

You know ... sometimes technology just sucks. We had a store meeting tonight at work. A video was to be played that was to be accessed through our work computer. The bulk of our meeting was centered on this video. The video link didn't work. "It'll be up in 2 to 3 days" we were told by the Help Desk when we called. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

Finding out 45 minutes before my meeting was to start was rather upsetting. I'm sorry, but that is simply unacceptable to me. They have known for How Long that this was coming up? They instructed us when and how, and then dropped the ball? Now I have to pull people away from doing their jobs to watch this during this next week?! How is that productive?

I love my job. I know, I know ... Go with the flow ... but, seriously?!


Played around a bit with zentangle-ing. It is rather meditative.
