Father Of C And UNIX, Dennis Ritchie, has passed away at age 70

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

We seem to be loosing a lot of good people in the computer business, and the Father Of C And UNIX, Dennis Ritchie, has passed away at ageĀ 70. I know Steve Jobs helped create the the consumer demand for I.T. products but Dennis Ritchie was one of the inventors or the modern operating system, or what we know as Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. Some how I don’t think the worlds news papers will fill the front pages lamenting this loss, Which is sad really, seeing with out Denis Ritchie we may not have had the C programming language. Why is that important, well with out the C programming language, we as software poeople may not be able to write programs, which alot of have formed operating systems.


The e-mail response

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

The e-mail response, I have now started avoiding companies that do not respond to e-mail, or e-mail me wanting me call them, so that they can deal with my request. The car insurance variety spring to mind. I am not interested in spending my day on the phone, I don’ t have time like that to waste. What I do want from a company, is a company that can respond to me in an intelligent way after I sending in an e-mail with optimistically intelligent information to them.

The classic case in point, was the insurance company that got all the necessary details from me over a e-mail and ended up asking me the same questions again over the same e-mail tread. That was the end of my interest in dealing with that company because if someone can’t read an e-mail then they certainly handle my car insurance.

If a company cannot read and decipher the information sent in an e-mail, or cannot give its employees leeway to make a judgment call on e-mail and how to respond then do you want to deal with that company. Does it question a company’s online presence and data handling structures? I can illustrate this with the case of a insurance company sending me there web-form off the web, but in a e-mail from, they already had the details in the initial e-mail from me. Now from a data handling and business process, web-forms are the way to go, but old business rules still apply, as in the ability to respond to an e-mail if you have a staff that are dedicated to it.
