I might have used several curse words at the office today. For several minutes I sat with my face in my hands, performing some very muffled, very elaborate cursing. It was epic and vengeful and nearly silent, because I didn't want to scare my coworkers. Only one thing can set me off like this at the office: random, inexplicable technology failures. I have no tolerance for them. I lose my shit. I try to solve the problem myself and when that fails I realize I am deeply screwed, because our tech support takes ages to solve an issue. I work with nonprofits providing fund development consulting, and this often includes donor database design, clean up and restructuring. So normally Excel is my best friend. But today, Excel betrayed me for about two hours.
And my document, having zipped through Google Docs is now getting close to completion. This is all I have to share today. Excel has shredded me and tried to ruin me and caused a flair up of my natually high levels of melodrama. But I didn't let it. Google saved me. I might just drop Microsoft Office entirely and fully embrace the Google.
And a happy side note, also Google based, our neighborhood just qualified to receive Google Fiber! We are 51st on the list so it will be a wait, but we're on the list!
