OK haven't posted in a while here .. thought I would add something.

Feb and Flu season really stink .. my wife and I have now alternated colds twice (her sick one week my week the next) for what seems like all year.

the problem with me being sick is tired so easily and don't want to do much except veg in front of the TV.

If I do any work that requires my brain when I'm tired and under the weather .. I usually screw something up and take longer to fix it later when I'm healthy .. so I try to limit it.

.... lets see ..

Oh .. I went to a marketing databsae convention in London two days ago. I might have been in a grumpy mood but ..

I went to the stands of about 5 CRM vendors .. each telling how great their system is for capturing sales leads .. then they took my information .. ON A PAPER FORM unsure.gif .. one called this morning to follow up and I asked him .. if your CRM is so good, why are you capturing my sales data on paper. He responded .. well, we eventually type the details in (yeah right !)

Another two companies did cleansing of data and sold data to dupport direct mail .. I typed in my post code (zip code) and house number .. and the name of the guy that lived here before us showed up as living here with us .. no wonder why we get so much junk mail for him !! I have reported to the post office a few times that they moved and do not send anything for him anymore .. but we still get it .. there are actually fines in the UK for sending junk mail to people who have not requested it .. but no wonder why we are getting it .. we are on the database mad.gif
