Site upgrades! Fun for everyone!

·455 words·3 mins

See, not only does the pharmacy piss me off, but computers piss me off as well.

All I tried to do was to upgrade the software that this system runs on.  You know, new version of Movable Type, tons of new features, shiny-shiny-oo-oo!

Yeah, I got it in the ass, big time.

If you received like a bunch of email from this site about old-as-hell entries, thats why.  I’m sorry (and thats the only time you’ll get a genuine Sorry from me) that the software that I tried to upgrade sucks.  Fortunately I managed to contain the 45,000 emails that were on their way out.

I’m trying to get account creation fixed so you can log-in and post to this site (without going through the “I’m not a spambot” human test with the funny writing)

Stay tuned for some awesome Medicare Part-D handouts that I’m making especially for your problem old-patients!

If you see something that is really broken, email [email protected] and I’ll do my best to see whats going on.

Well, I didn’t get any e-mail, but you can spam my inbox into oblivion as long as you keep blogging!

Oh I hear upgrades.
I work for CVS, one of the most evil, money grubbing corporate behemoths in existence (but that’s another blog) And they have recently converted about 85 stores to their new “RxConnect” prescription processing system. And I just happen to work in one of the “chosen few.”
It is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
slow. And buggy!
After you press “enter” you can take a 30 second nap before you can expect anything to happen. And often what will happen is an “illegal exception.”
And everytime we call corporate help desk, because that’s what we’re supposed to do each and every time we notice some kind of problem, they always say it’s a “known issue;” stop bothering us. There are times where it will get slower and slower and then go completely dead. And it’s been down anywhere form 15 minutes to two bloody hours.
For any of you who work for Longs… Ha ha ha ha. Be forewarned. Get out! Get out now, while you still can!!!
Bah ha ha ha Waahhh!
