Work Stuff: Wireless Misconceptions and Pen1s emails

You would not believe some people's misconceptions about wireless technology. We use wireless here on campus. The financial aid laptops that are given away COME with wireless cards. 90% of campus has wireless coverage. But people just do not understand that just because your wireless works here doesn't mean you can take it to...uh...Bakersfield and it will work with the university settings....or in their homes (unless of course they have set up a wireless router or modem of some sort). My iBook has an airport card in it. I don't expect to be able to go to BFM's house in LV and have it work (because their house isn't wireless....yet) or at my house 10 miles away from campus...that is why it has a regular modem too. The people giving out these laptops are not explaining wireless very well I don't think.
***
A staff member called me today and said that he was "starting to get a complex" from all the "pen1s enlarg3ment" emails he had been getting. I then began to explain to him how to set up mail rules in the email client that we use at work and came to the conclusion that I just could not say the word "pen1s" in a work context. It was nearly embarassing when I said that he could use "one of those words" as the qualifier as to what got deleted. What is with that? I have no problems with cursing...my mother would tell you I have a mouth like a sailor...but I turned red in my office while even contemplating saying the word "pen1s" on the phone to a staff member who has no idea what I look like (but I know what he looks like!!! HA.). What is that about???

Friday Five and a reminder

By the way I snagged this from Matron

You have just won one million dollars:

1. Who do you call first? BFM....my best friend and soon to be financial advisor.

2. What is the first thing you buy for yourself? After paying off bills...I would buy myself a house and put the rest (or a good chunk of it) into investments.

3. What is the first thing you buy for someone else? Perhaps...helping them pay off debt...like car loans or something.

4. Do you give any away? If yes, to whom? See above answer

5. Do you invest any? If so, how? With my financial advisor...I don't know much about that kind of thing.
**************
PLUG: If you need a financial advisor, who is backed by a major banking institution, drop me an email at badgroove@earthlink.net...I will hook you up. She is fully licensed and trying to build her own client base...she does free one hour consultations by phone...let me know and i can hook you up.
