FFOT: Fuck you, Blackboard. Fuck you, so hard.

I was grading last night, and suddenly...the gradebook quit working.  I tried four times to enter grades in one student's slot, and I got a "not found" error message.  And then got told to refresh.  And then was informed that there was a managed service interruption. 

What.  The. Actual.  FUCK. 

I am just about to the point of hunting down the admin who are NOT FUCKING DOING THEIR FUCKING JOB, and choking them unconscious.

  1. As an IT guy, we get just as irritated when people don't do their job. It makes it harder for the rest of us to get credit for doing ours, or even being allowed to do it at all.

    1. I give the IT guys full credit. It's the admin twits that don't understand anything but bureaucracy that I want to strangle.

  2. Oh, I can totally agree with you on that! Blackboard doesn't even have very good error messages when something goes wrong.

    My real FFOT? The idiot nurse who has decided to make it "all about meeeeeeeeeeeee" and is threatening to sue State-of-Maine and others over their request that she, you know, maybe stick close to home for a while, because, you know, she might have been exposed to a particularly deadly disease, and going out clubbing and on bike rides and inviting people to hug her isn't a good idea?

    I mean, yeah, I'm not sure totally how I feel about government-mandated quarantines, but how about some people having some EFFING COMMON SENSE and some EFFING CONCERN FOR THEIR NEIGHBORS for once. And not playing the attention-whore on the evening news.

    I hope she doesn't get Ebola, but if she does, and if she actually gives it to someone - I hope they stick her with the bill for their care.

    1. I hope they stick her with at least attempted murder, if she develops symptoms and survives. Whether or not anyone else catches it.

    2. In my neck of the woods, such bold actions might lead to a ride on the hood of a four wheel drive pickup, beer drinking and a whole lot of stories.
