Leaving the (sab)Bat Cave: Screw Technology Edition

This transition from sabbatical life to real life is not so easy. I am suddenly busy, very busy, painful please get out of my office I cannot possibly solve all of your problems right now busy. I’ve lived this life before, but a year of not being busy makes you get soft. So, motherfucking god-damned shit on a stick motherfucking christ my University web system is a piece of fucking shit. (Oh, and anyone thinking what the fuck is with all that motherfucking gratuitous cursing shit just needs to fucking realize that it is not fucking easy returning to work after a sweet assed motherfucking sabbatical). Why does my university have this ridiculous web-based system controlling my access to all manner of important shit? Why is it so difficult to download a class list? When you push the download button next to the class list wouldn’t you expect some useful file to pop out? I do. Instead you get some bizarre file format with a bunch of useless info cluttering things up. I know MY name, it’s MY fucking class. Just give me THEIR names. I don’t care about all their secret numbers, or their parents, or the fact that they joined the Klingon club in motherfucking high school. And what’s with all the weird spacing? Should 30 names really require 82 fucking lines? I just want a list of names. Screw this. I’ll type it myself.

  6. I wasted my entire day the same way, in a pile of broken links, empty sites, etc. The only thing more disheartening, I find, is seeking help from the office or worker logically responsible for the content of a given page, and finding instead complacency. The A+ jobs we used to get from the best secretaries is now the B- outcome we are supposed to generate ourselves. What a crappy trade.

  10. I work at a school with the word technology in its name. What the fuck! Why do I still have a crt screen hooked up to an old dell and the program I wish to use is not compatible with the memory (or lack of)? And we have more teacher meetings tutoring us on the outdated (old version) of software with the warning that we may or may not be getting a new system very soon.

  11. Ok, so you got me thinking about how long I've been annoyed about technology, and then I remembered this. Just for commiseration purposes.

    And perhaps we can trade? I work on a 1985 based AS400 system. Not familiar? Does GREEN SCREEN mean anything to you? Yeah. It's that bad.
    Happy non-sabbatical return. I think GEW can empathize.
