I've got a great idea!

By advancedgeek ·
work makes me carry this INFERNAL blackberry around for emergencies and all. So I'm sleeping and all of a sudden all **** breaks loose in my bedroom. Earthquake? no. Was I getting mortared/carbombed/nuked? no.

It was the INFERNAL EMAIL FROM TECHRUPUBLIC AT 5:15 IN THE MORNING!!! BAH! I never did get back to sleep...I don't mind getting them...but maybe at a decent hour for the 0800 or something. :)

*note: this is mostly a joke...those who flame me will be sacked, and those who jokingly flame me--- will also be sacked (any monty python fans out there?)

CPQ Insight mgr.

by tbragsda In reply to I've got a great idea!

Worked a project at a big bank I was was with. Setup Insightmgr for like 150 branches. While I was getting the project going, I was the only one getting the pages. Branches connected through the mainframe with NW SAA/SNA. For some stupid reason I never got, the PUs would reset at night, not all on one schedule either. So, beepbeepbeep. 10 min later beepbeepbeep.

Works for me...

by Jessie In reply to I've got a great idea!

8 am for you would be 9am for me... at that point I'd have already been awake for 4 hours. Wonder if they can delay the messages to deliver at 8am in each time zone... of course, that would put some people 24 hours behind the times... that'd be bad... I think they should just stick with waking YOU up at 5:15... that's 6:15 MY time, and I'm already up by then too... and come to think of it... I don't have a cheezeball blackberry anyway... so I don't really care what time they wake YOU up.

I'll take that puppy off your hands... then again, there's a reason that I dumped my pager 5 years ago.

I won't

by jdclyde In reply to over here

even break down and get a cell phone, personal or professional.

I do NOT want people calling me all the time. If I wanted to talk to someone I would go visit them. I do not need to talk to them while I am at the mall or driving down the highway.

Cell phone = teather.

Learn to turn it off

by Dr Dij In reply to I won't

I've eliminated my landline so cell is all I got. On weekends, power it off if work people bother you. Unless you're paid to be on call, then work should supply it. At nite, I keep it in room other than BR so I don't get woken up.

I've actually had ex-gfs call while I'm out on weekend with my current gal, not as bad as work calling. (It was OK, we're still 'friends').

You're right...

by Jessie In reply to huh?!

I was never any good at math... that's why I got a degree in electronics :)

Actually, I'm good at math, but time zones always screw me up!

I'd like to be sacked... haven't been sacked in months.

It is occassionally mildly entertaining to get fired... from a BAD job...

Most fun I ever had QUITTING a job... I walked in one day, said, "I came to give my notice. You'll notice I won't be here anymore." and left. :) Now THAT was fun!!!
