03:49 pm - Motivation? What Motivation?
Four more days of this job. Four more boring mind-numbing tedious days of people bugging me about things that for far too long they should have been learning about themselves.

This morning was the ultimate, however. A cow-orker came to me, complaining that they couldn't get CVS to work on their Windows box. Even after looking at the batch file I provided on the network for setting up CVS. "Oh, but all the back slashes in there were forward slashes like on UNIX, so I changed them to the Windows backslash." ARRRRRRGH! "Well that file, as is, works perfectly. You're supposed to use forward slashes; that is what CVS expects." "Oh, well, I'll give it a shot and them come and get you."

Amazingly, they never did come and get me again. I assume it worked fine after they followed the damn directions... geesh.

Basically... there were instructions to follow. Said person admitted he saw the instructions, didn't follow them, but still came to me to complain. I said go follow the directions & come back if they don't work. He never came back, so I assume the directions work, and he was stupid for not following them.
