Just Venting

Ok. I admit it. I am a YouTube addict. Tonight, I was going to catch up on some of the channels that I am subscribed to and then watch Medium (I’ve got a major crush on Patricia Arquette). I looked up and it was 9:10pm. One of my annoying little quirks is i hate to miss the first of a movie or a TV show. I’d rather not see it at all than come in on it late. I am so disappointed. I know I’ll catch the show in reruns but it makes a strong argument for setting up some kind of DVR so that this doesn’t happen again.

Another thing that’s got me kinda miffed is the fact that the YouTube infrastructure is so overloaded that comment posting and private messaging are not dependable (otherwise known as the dreaded comment-eating monster). I love the social interaction of YouTube. I hate the fact that I never know if my comment really got posted or not. I don’t know who to blame, the original YouTube developers for not implementing a system that would scale or Google for mucking with something that was working and screwing it up. I really don’t know who’s at fault but I WISH THEY WOULD GET IT FIXED!!!!!! Pardon my rant.

I am also extremely frustrated by the situation at work. Not to put too fine a point on it but I am stuck twiddling my thumbs, taking mandatory training classes while the powers that be figure out how to set up our new accounting system so that we can work on actually useful projects.

I once told my dad that I really didn’t have to worry about my employer going out of business. The company is so big that even if they did everything wrong, it would take them 50 years to go bankrupt. Maybe I’m exaggerating a little bit but that’s how it feels to me.
