Happy Birthday Carl!

16 Jul 2012

Happy Birthday Carl!

Today we celebrated Carl’s birthday!

Correction – Today, we celebrated having missed Carl’s birthday, which was yesterday. Carl, being a good sport, promised that he would one day be able to move on past this disappointment, and hopefully lead a life similar to the one he had before.

Thanks $WEBEX_CON_EMAIL

Thanks $WEBEX_CON_EMAIL

Dear WebEX,

We’ve been testing out a few conference systems and first went with WebEX as several of our clients/partners seem to use it, but after a few calls, it seemed like a lot of moaning and groaning on our end about having to navigate their UI.

We’ve since settled on GoToMeeting as their tools/interface feel much easier to interact with.

So, today… I went through your cancellation process, which required me to call and wait on hold for 20 minutes, talk with one of your agents, explain why we wanted to cancel, turn down their offer for free training of using their tool, and eventually wait for my confirmation email. I’ve gone ahead and provided it for you.

I’ll give you some credit though. When I first compared WebEX vs GoToMeeting, I found your marketing/sales pitch to be more compelling, so pulled my credit card out for you first. However, once you gave me access to my new account, It was nothing but headaches and annoyances for the team. Very difficult tools to interact with… the epitome of a web tool designed by technical people who lack much empathy for the end-user. I worry that you’re losing a lot of customers for similar reasons… and would encourage you to have some of your usability experts focus on your online scheduling/planning tools as it was too painful for us to work with.

Sincerely,
$FIRST_NAME

Memory Lane - Server outages

6 Apr 2012

Memory Lane - Server outages

While I have fond memories of the days when we’d be getting several hosting orders each day for new customers, I don’t miss the days when servers would crash. We’re thankful to be able to partner with companies like Blue Box for most of our client hosting needs these days.

Days since I was last in a colo facility: 97. (when we pulled all of our remaining servers out of our cabinet on Dec. 31, 2011)

Back to School

Annie, Eric, and myself recently flew down to Mountain View, CA to meet with one of our new clients, TCI who is a K-12 education publishing company. While visiting, I couldn’t help taking a few photos of them in the studio classroom.

Stay tuned as we’ll have a lot to share about the work we’re doing with them.

Movember... in the PA Studio?

Movember... in the PA Studio?

I’ve been trying to push Movember onto the gentlemen of Planet Argon, with no success. So in an attempt to persuade, I fashioned them with the most stylish mustaches, mustachios, and handlebars I could find. Not so bad, right?

Have a project that needs help?
