I will never remember everyone who wants logos done for them unless I do it this way:

Anyone who wants me to make them a logo or a sigil or a symbol, for web or otherwise, sound off here; reply to this post. And in the reply, please tell me what it is you want, and what the graphic file is destined for.

So it's a gorgeous day outside, and it's a chilly cave in the TAC. There's only the two of us here, and only one guy downstairs, so it's not like anyone's going to catch us at it: we've propped the outside door open with a rock, and propped the inside hall door open with--

--wait for it--

--an iMac.

Sorry, guys! That didn't look anywhere near as borked in my semagic window. *sheep* And it's not even that funny. A-heh. *^_^*;;

 So I'm in at 10 AM on my day off to make up time off on Sunday, when I was scheduled but couldn't work. I showed up looking like a zombie, and it is currently the funniest thing in the WORLD that my coworker, upon seeing me, said 'Did you even /know/ there was a 10 o'clock in the morning?'

I can't say much for my sense of humour at this time of day.

**** called with the concern that earlier this morning (Sunday, yes) there was a period of about an hour that email sent to him was not actually getting to his account. Between 9:30ish and 10:30ish he at first -wasn't- getting mail, and then was getting mail very late; he started sending himself (and other people) test messages, and they got them and he didn't, and then they started trickling into his account one at a time, fifteen minutes to half an hour late. He's very concerned because one piece of test email that he sent at 10:13 /never/ came through, and he might have missed email from /other/ people during that window of time. He'd like a call back on whether or not there's any way of telling what happened to the test mail, and whether or not there's any way of recovering anything that anyone might have sent him in that time that he never even knew about. I wasn't sure what to tell him other than 'I'll have someone give you a call Monday that knows better than I do'.

User Comments Below:
I e-mailed you last week. My system is unstable. When I am composing, the system suddenly goes to an error message and wipes out what I have composed. It cannot be recoved. The usual recovery does not kick in.

I have lost two lengthy e-mails this morning alone. THIS MUST BE FIXED.

All right. Now-- there's a button, right above the goddamn compose window, that says 'save draft'. Why do SO MANY PEOPLE -fail to use it-, and blame us, and then proceed to emphasize their own stupidity by saying that they've lost ohhhh so much data because of this problem that is clearly ours? :P

Who the FUCK calls their ISP and goes 'Hi! I just bought a new hard drive. Can you fax over instructions as to how to install it?'

AND THEN when I say NO, goes 'But I AM A CUSTOMER! And this is my COMPUTER! That I use to connect to YOUR SERVICE! Which I PAY FOR!'


It baffles me that people are people, sometimes.
