Vending Machine Humor

November 5, 2010 | Posted by Paul

The vending machine in our lunch room is notorious for taking your money and teasing you with a bag of chips dangling from the slot where it should drop. I suspect there’s a pretty high, 20%-ish “you aint gonna get what you want” rate on this clearly aging food dispensing unit. (Vending machine in lay terms) Sometimes shaking works, but we’ve heard that humans don’t always win in these situations.

A few times a week there’s usually a typical post-it note venting displeasure to the vending machine guy over the loss of money. Yesterday there were a lot of these, and I found this one in particular to be really funny.. largely because the evidence is overwhelming.

Well, Danielle.. I don’t know who you are but I hope you are one day reunited with your ABBA-ZABA, we feel your pain.

The team at VPS.NET was kind enough to send over one of their amazing little robots. Here he is right after I took him out of his anti-static (To prevent electrical issues during transport) bag.

A closeup..

The little guy wasted no time and promptly got to work. I switched the flip from “node management” to programming, and he started away filling in the stub methods for some objects in the new Blesta 3.0 that’s currently under development. Took him a few minutes to learn the Dvorak key mappings (He comes with native QWERTY support only) but once he got the hang of it, it was a sight to behold. I should have taken video.

He also loves to get into things. He finished up all his work early, and I caught him playing with the paper clips. Crazy little guy!! What a personality.

So, a big thank you to VPS.NET and all the staff! Nick, Ditlev, Terry, Carlos, and the rest, well done!


Website gets a new look

February 13, 2010 | Posted by Paul

I’m happy to announce that has a new look. The last design went largely unchanged for about 2 years, so we were long overdue for a facelift. There may be a few issues with missing content, or the occasional broken page but we’ll have that all cleared up in the next few days. So, what do you think?

Our friends over at Vision Helpdesk have been hard at work, they just launched v2.3.2 with Blesta integration! Now you can create invoices in Blesta directly from Vision Helpdesk, and I’m told they’ve got login share working too.

Vision Helpdesk is emerging as a leader is the support desk industry, and we recommend you check them out. They even have a free trial, so there is no obligation to buy.
