AARGH: Curse you time-out systems


Seriously people. Don't have a job application website that times out after 30 minutes. Let's talk about how even when you are doing a copy/paste job that it takes a lot longer than 30 minutes to do. Solution: fix the server to accept job apps as soon as they are finished....not because it has timed out. There must be a way to fix this.

Do I really want to take the 4th time to resubmit all this info as the fear of it 'timing out' looms over me? Fear does not create in me a need to do better. Even after calling the IT and admin personnel, they said it was user-error. Well, if that is the case, then I would like to hire a robot that can type, copy and paste at 100 words per second!

This is just another case of man versus machine....

MOOD: Slightly Better, but still a little frazzled
