I sometimes wonder if we're too dependent on electronic things for our daily lives.
Totes confirmed now at work.
I'm an event planner/admin of all trades. I send out emails via our mass emailer, Communigate Pro, which we have re-named Communi-hate, because it has caused me some serious angst.
Yesterday and today, I haven't even been able to log in. You see, it has been going suuuuuuper slowly (a turtle walking in molasses would go faster). I try to log in. Sometimes I am successful. Sometimes not. If I AM successful, I have to then click on the 'mailboxes' link in order to do anything. But it takes so darn long that by the time it realizes where I want to go, it has logged me out, because it logs you out if you are inactive for too long.
I have an event tomorrow that I'd LOVE to remind people of. But no dice on that one, because the only way I can access our email lists is through this stupid web site. And I'm concerned that we'll have a crappy turnout because I couldn't send these emails.
I have another event in April that's a much bigger deal. The early registration deadline is coming up in a few weeks and I'd love to remind people of that. But again..... I CAN'T ACCESS THE MASS EMAIL SITE.
So yes. I am depending on this stupid web site to get things done, and they cannot be accomplished.
