Almost there...

Wednesday, June 10, 2009


Sometimes my job just hurts me. And I'm not referring to the ache in my wrists from too much time on the computer.

No, I'm referring to the emails I got today from a faculty member (a surgeon no less!) asking why his Sundial data hasn't been moved even though he's gotten a bunch of messages about it. Well, it could be that just like it says in the message I sent you yesterday, that the migration isn't happening until the July 4th weekend. We even updated the language to avoid saying "The Independence Day holiday weekend" and just get blunt and say over the "July 4th holiday weekend." Dude.

I'm not kidding. The quote from the email is "the move from Sundial to Stanford Calendar happens over the July 4th Holiday weekend." Ow. I hope I never find myself beneath this man's knife. Lord knows what else he has failed to read or absorb.


  • No surprise that he is a surgeon — I have never met a teaching hospital doctor who has time to keep up with his email.

  • I too have sent out notifications in advance of an upcoming cut over. People do not read those messages. They scan them.

    If you give them too much time in advance of the change they cry. If you don't give them enough time, they cry.

    You can't win.
