It’s snowing here! When I was a kid, on the days that it snowed heavily, we would listen to the radio early in the morning to find out if schools were closed. Now I’m an adult, and although I have modern sources to find out if the office is closed, there’s still the exact same giddy, nervous excitement I remember from childhood of knowing there was a chance I might have a day off. Snow days were great! We’d play in the snow for hours, and there were always at least one or two sledding related mishaps. When we were tired we’d go inside and drink hot chocolate and play video games, such as Pokemon Yellow/Red/Blue, Super Smash Bros, GoldenEye, Perfect Dark, Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, etc. Good times, good times.
Several people suggested making a Facebook page for Last Tech Standing. I’m happy to accommodate everyone’s content delivery preferences, of course. However, the assumption most people have (including myself, until yesterday) is that by throwing a like at a Facebook page, we’re then guaranteed to continue seeing new posts to that page in our feed on a fairly regular basis. Sadly, that isn’t the case. I won’t go into details, (you’re free to read up the subject yourself) but your chances of seeing content from a page you liked is pretty low. Really low, actually. At the moment I’m working on implementing RSS, and an E-mail notification system, so those two will be options soon. Until then, for those who want to continue seeing new content (thanks!), here’s the breakdown of your options:
A) Navigate to Last Tech Standing directly, on Mon, Wed and Fri.
B) Like Last Tech Standing on Facebook, click ‘Pages’ on the left side, then click the shortcut to Last Tech Standing.
C) Check my personal Facebook page here.
Someone brought in scones to work today and left them in the breakroom. Scones don’t rate *quite* as highly as donuts, in my book, but I’m certainly not complaining. I took several more scones than what is considered ‘polite’, then scurried off. No regrets.
