Posted on 10/13/2013 8:23:27 AM PDT by NOBO2012
Hard to believe, butt were just one day shy of a full 2 week government shutdown. Combined with the problems were experiencing (temporarily) with our Obamacare system, things are getting a little tense around here.
With so many of our non-essential personnel on furlough, Lady M is growing a little short with those of us still on the job - which is okay, because were used to it. Butt now even no-drama Obama is beginning to act out a little.
That Boner, I'll make him an offer he can't refuse.
Not only that, butt Im working here with a handicap because I left my personal, personal computer across state the other day when we went to see Deweys dad (who broke his hip and underwent a hip replacement; I know! We were surprised too, since hes 92 and Kathypotomus usually doesnt authorize such expensive treatment for people his age any more). Anyhoo, Dads doing fine, and while I usually borrow Rajs state-of-the-art computer when somethings wrong with mine, I cant this time as hes been tapped to help fix the Obamacare website and is working 24/7.
BTW, if you were planning to sign up for one of the excellent healthcare plans offered through the exchanges, you might want to make other plans. Raj said that even a reincarnated Steve Jobs wouldnt be able to straighten this mess out in time for a January 1st enrollment. Although I understand January 1 is just a target now.
Can we get more baling wire and duck tape in here! Stat!
I asked Raj if the problem was just related to the unexpectedly high traffic or if a more significant issue of system architecture is at play. Im guessing its just the traffic, because he said what architecture?
Now we know what theyve been doing with all that ammo.
He said the code is truncated where it ought to be supplemented and aggregated where it should be looped. No idea what hes talking about, butt it sounds pretty bad. According to Raj, weve had a high-speed train wreck before the train ever left the station.
So, until we drive back to check up on Dad, and since its Deweys fault that I dont have my personal, personal computer, he produced a special episode of WTF Theater for me to present for your viewing pleasure.
Dewey HOPEs you enjoy it.
The government shutdown has resulted in hardships all across the country. As day 13 dawns in Seattle we rejoin Cody and Skylar, holed up in their Seattle condo, trying to wait out the uprising of the Tea Party Anarchists waging outside.
Unbeknownst to them, their satellite TV is locked onto the History channel, which has been running a month long anniversary marathon of footage from the 2011 Occupy Wall Street uprising.
So you can understand their confusion:
