Inconceivable!

This is just …..well…. inconceivable.

“Apparently” W.C. Fields Was Right.

W.C. Fields is credited with the saying “never work with children or animals,” his point being they will always steal the scene.

Apparently Noah Ritter proves Fields’ point.

Noah Ritter from Wilkes-Barre steals the show from Newswatch 16′s Sofia Ojeda during an interview at the Wayne County Fair.




Chinese: The New C++

Clients-From-Hell-ROHOne of the cites we like to visit is called “Clients from Hell.” There, you can find all sorts of interesting stories in dealing with clients in the graphics world. As a friend of ours says “it is about as real life as it can get.”

One of the stories caught our eye was this one:

So last week I tried using a language analogy for a client’s project. The project manager said the project was straight HTML/CSS when in fact it was C++.

To help him understand the problem I used this analogy: “Let’s say you’re asking me to write something in a specific language, I am fluent in English and Spanish. Meanwhile, your project is in Chinese. Since I don’t know Chinese and it is not remotely similar to any of the languages I know, I am not your best option for this project. You need someone who is fluent in this specific language for the project to be successful and stay on budget.”

He said he understood and thanked me for my time.

This morning I received an IM from another developer asking: “Why is ‘so and so’ asking us if we are fluent in Chinese?”

We’re still laughing at that one.
