All About Razdial
I'm working on a project at the moment, upgrading our companies e-mail system. I have upgraded lots of systems in the past, but none so directly personal to so many people as this. It is turning into something of nightmares.
Personally, I get a ton of e-mail in a day (somewhere between 40-60), most of which are internal junk; which is to say they are not really junk mail, but things like automated notifications and the like. Once they are weeded out, then you get the mails that you are just copied on, so that someone has covered their butt. That leave me with about 10-20 that I need to deal with. Now these messages are not personal, friendly or nice, they are simply a rubbish form of communication that would probably be better served with a quick 2 minute phone call.
But this is not a rant about my e-mail, it's a rant about 1200 peoples e-mail. I did not train my entire career to end up an electronic postman or the babysitter of people who can not understand the simple rules of business e-mail system. Anyway, we have only done the pilot phase and I am already completely sick of people talking about how they have lost 3 messages and this is my fault. This is a very bad place to be and I know I should become numb to this, but I am.
Anyway, I will plough on through and try not to let a 1200 person project turn into an individual single person project, repeated 1200 times.
E-mail has a lot to answer for.
How old to I feel today? My son has just started his blog and to him it was just a matter of time. He lives in a different world to that of when I was his age. Now I know that sounds like a cliché, but of course it's true.
He is being brought up not to play outside, where every piece of information is both freely online and also precious enough not to give it away. I wonder how different they will be as adults and how they will run our country.
I was having a debate with my 3 sons the other day about who is actually the best Super Hero. This doesn't really mean, who is the strongest or the most indestructible. But, in there opinion, who do they think is the best and why?
I offered them a choice of 3, Batman, Spider-man & Superman. I know there are more and others would include a myriad of others, but I wanted to keep it simple and these 3 are from the 3 main genres of Super Heroes.
· Superman was born with all his abilities; he just had to learn how to use them.
· Batman has trained to be one.
· Spider-man was ordinary and then became one.
We concluded that Spider-man would have the most appreciation of what his powers meant, as he was given then after being fairly ordinary. He would also know what it would mean if they were taken away. Batman worked hard to achieve his abilities, along with a large dose of gadgets and armour; he would no have to worry about loosing his abilities. Superman had to learn how to control his powers, and managed to stay uncorrupted by that power.
Now I know we are talking about these 3 as though they are real, but to little kids, they might as well be. They all have a moral to their lives and a code they live by and this is the main point.
OK, we chose Spider-man.
