I keep one open on the root of any forum I am reading. Then one for each sub-forum that I want to read, and one tab for each thread in the sub-forum I am currently reading. I close tabs as I read posts, and when I have read all from a sub-forum I close that tab and open the threads I want to read in the next sub-forum.

It's something of a depth-first search...

I do that as well, or if a forum thread is referring back to an article(s) on the main site I have both the thread and main site open in tabs. I'll close the tabs when I'm done with it, or bookmark it if I think it's something I'll need later.

Half the tabs mom has are for internal account pages that require a login....and the persistence of said login is almost entirely dependent on the site's security settings. It times out after 15 minutes? That's not something I can fix the way you think I can.

I had the thing I hate most happen to me 2 times today; users who lie.

First, the user that tried to run thick card stock through a color laser printer without checking to see if the settings were set for the paper, or if the paper was OK'd to go through it. Now, the printer is streaking black on all pages, even through a cleaning and a toner cart change. I would've believed you saying that 'it was happening before'...except for the fact that I have your first page you ran on standard letter paper, and it's streak-free. Guess who sent that and the streaked copies in an email to his Director?

Second, a user who can't reach our staff paystub site. I told her to check her wireless settings, to make sure that she's on the school staff wireless or on a wired connection. She emails me back, saying that it's on both and can't reach the site. I go over, and you can take a guess of what I found...no wired connection, and the laptop connected to the student computer wireless network.

From today's "fun"....

So - 3 weeks have passed since the last time you called and forgot you had forwarded your phone to the old voice mail system. And 3 weeks from the last time we sent you the illustrated guide on how to check the above issue and cancel it yourself. (NOTE: The illustrated guide was created for this user the 4th time he had called - 3 months ago).

Every 3 weeks we have the same issue with you.

So a permanent solution was put into place today.


No matter where you go in the organization, your forward key will be disabled.

You're not worth the effort.

Hey, guys - see that tag in Jira, right side near the top of the ticket? It's green, kind of rounded, and says, in white, "RESOLVED"?

That means the ticket's been RESOLVED.


Need I point out that nearly four months after I posted this, and probably six since I fixed the problem in question (and set the applicable story in Jira to RESOLVED), they're still updating it? Probably at least four times last week alone.

Give us a maintenance window, PLEASE.
