Wow - January was the last time I was here. I'd like to say I was too busy, but more I was too disinterested, or disenfranchised, or disgusted with this whole concept. Tell me why some blogs get more press than others - then tell me how to get that job to review others' oft times inane rantings! (Some even more inane than mine).
Oh, right - lets not complain lest I become cynical. (Too late - *snicker*)
We hired a sales guy two months ago and he definitely has sales skills - unlike the previous schmoe who had...um...none? Right, but the other guy also had...uh...no technical ability either. Oh he used to be an engineer for Cysco (yes, I know how to spell it -- I used to work there too)
. But hasn't worked high-tech since '95. Shouldn't be an issue, right? I mean, how much has networking technology really changed in the last 10 years?
Man, this 20-20 hindsight really sucks. I wish it worked that well looking forward.
Anyway, the new guy is good. Keeping me busy enough that I've had to change my system for keeping my evaluation customers straight - actually using the company's CRM.
On my other sore subjects, this...ahem
...president of ours. I'm hoping if I ignore him, he'll just go away. I've been paying far more attention to the White Sox. Yes, the White Sox. Not the "lovable losers" on the north side, who really are just losers. I've stuck with the Sox through the many lean years and am cautiously optimistic - seeing as they have the best record in baseball right now.
But who gets the press? Last year, the Cardinals got a ton of press because they were dominating baseball. This year - I don't know, but here in Chicago the Cubs still
get the headlines. The Sox get headlines - not for winning, but for poor attendance before Memorial Day. The most intellectual response to that is, "duh." Kids are at school you morons. Sox Park is not frat-boy city like Wrigley - it's family oriented baseball. We're setting records now.
Sorry - pontificating again. I would just like the national attention for the team that's actually doing well, not for the team that continuously struggles or chokes with 5 outs left before heading to the World Series. (remember the famous touched foul ball?)
