Topher's Rules

1. Don't get caught.
2. If you get caught, admit everything.
3. Solving the problem is more important than blaming someone.
3a. Take responsibility, even if it isn't your fault, if it gets the problem solved faster.
4. Back your friend's play, once it is made, even if you disagree with it.
5. Life isn't fair, but try to be fair.
6. Don't talk down to people. Especially kids.
7. Never complain about a rainy Monday.
8. Talk to strangers.
9. Spend money on experiences instead of stuff. (No one can steal your experiences.)
10. Most individuals are nice. Most groups aren't.
11. People like people who are like them, so if you want someone to like you, exaggerate your similarities and understate your differences.
12. If you are building a team, find people who are different from you and from each other.
13. Shut up and listen.

I figure that if I have to be at work it might as well rain. (But yeah, I know The Carpenters.)

Spring won't come fast enough I fear. Seriously, you've got the serial killer look down pat. Nice Kanye West smile really rounds out the effect.

My analysis of the mid-term elections in Chattanooga. https://www.facebook.com/notes/10152543370103074/
Once again, I embark on my journey to learn about who are the best candidates in Chattanooga elections. I expect, like previous elections, I will determine the most qualified candidates for each position, vote for them, then watch as they lose in a landslide. Governor ...

Tech support tip: If you direct people to your phone system for website problems, have people available to answer the phone. If the phone system is overloaded, do not direct them to the website if all the website does is redirect them back to the phone system. And if you have an email system for questions, give some indication of how long it will take to receive a response. (Four days to even get into the phone system, now four hours on the phone. Email sent after finding hidden menu, which gives me zero confidence that anyone checks that mailbox.)

I love it when a company salesperson tells me all the cool stuff their product can do, then their sample data file demonstrates almost the complete opposite.

I was once asked to sit in on a demo of a 2nd gen database that was little more than a series of html pages made to look like a working database. The head of the IT dept for that company couldn't even get me to the right site, giving me their internal URLs and I had to figure it out on my own to even start the "demo".

Needless to say I didn't recommend anyone, much less my company, buy their product. All they really had was an inferior 1st gen db worse than our current one.....

My boss would ask every couple of months if we should re-visit that company's product, because he was buddies with one of their salesmen.

Good thoughts, hashtags, and prayers are nice, but if you actually want to do something to help, try this one on Catapult. If Boko Haram wants to keep girls from being educated, help fund Nigerian schools to slap them in the face.

Rude and condescending. Relied on comps that were incomparable for anything except location. If you want your property appraised at well below market value, this guy is for you.

Excellent service. I was referred to them by AAA as my key had broken and I had lost part of it and was expecting to have to have them tow me to Evansville. Instead, they helped me look for the missing part for about a half hour until we found it in a sidewalk crack. They were very helpful, despite losing business over it. I'd highly recommend them, as sometimes it's tough to find people like that.
