Back At Work
Yesterday I worked from 8:30 am to 8:00 pm, with only a short break for lunch, Rosetta has deluged me with strange one-off problems.......... mostly ones that I can track back to a single bizarre instance of data entry, although it is time-consuming. Today I hope I am coming to an end of them, as I have serious testing to do before Alec comes back next week.

Plus there are a few problems that are actually quite important, as opposed to being the results of people's inability to read. I hate to sound negative, but when you get users who, instead of adding a new person, change the name of an existing person to that of the person they want to add, it is no wonder that strange things are happening from time to time. I don't think it's a training issue, I think these people are the people who park on the pavement because there are double yellow lines on the road. And they are related to the woman on the plane to Paris last week who carried on a very loud conversation for some time, then, when asked to be a little quieter, said she just had a very loud voice and if people didn't want to hear her, they should simply move further away!

My little Leo is growing, soon he will be a proper Cyprus street kitty - the life of a street kitty here consists mainly of sleeping in the sun all day, then going to the nearest restaurant after dark. You can actually tell the quality of restaurants here by the cats hanging around, no cats is a rotten restaurant and sleek well-fed ones is a good restaurant. After this, the street kitties are ready to do whatever it is that street kitties do all night.... not that little Leo is anywhere like old enough for this yet. By the way, big Leo now knows that little Leo is named after him, and is a bit miffed (he is not a cat-lover), especially because the entire street is now calling this kitten Leo!

    LOL re the big Leo not appreciating having a kitten named after him! At least it's male and likes good restaurants :)
