Charting the Present

Flowchart

That pretty much sums it up. Now back to some guy's HP-UX problem. Not that I know HP-UX but that didn't stop me from getting chosen to resolve it,. The Citrix problem that came in from Germany, from a German, written in German, needing technical knowledge... that went to someone in Bangalore. Her only comment in the ticket: "What is Citrix?" It's in my queue now.

What is citrix?  Isn't that the thing women have "down there"?
Buy my books, dammit!

I think there are two ways in which people are controlled. First of all frighten people and secondly, demoralize them - ANW Benn

I recommend always assuming 7th normal form where items in a text column are not allowed to rhyme.

So if you ask for assistance from coworkers... by gazbo (2.00 / 0) #4 Mon Apr 21, 2008 at 04:23:24 AM EST
Then the only way of closing the ticket is by asking for more information from the customer?

So your coworkers' only role is to tell you to ask the customer for more info?

The correct reading is: "Asking other monkeys for help cannot lead to finding a solution."

They tell me what to ask for.

I suppose I could fiddle around a bit, flip those two boxes, add a decision box and move the arrows, but if I have to ask someone else, I don't have enough information. It's knowing that I don't know what to ask for that sends me off to them, as is the case in this HP-UX problem.
