Ellen DeGeneres What’s With All The Fuss?

Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen Degeneres arrived in Australia the other day, to copy Oprah’s visit to do a show at Sydney’s Opera House. Not very original if you ask me. Personally I couldn’t care less where she goes because I have just as much interest in her show as I did in Oprah’s, zilch!

Nope what bothers me is the way all the demented Aussies are throwing themselves at her and Portia, speaking of which I feel she looked stunning with long hair but her present hair cut just doesn’t do her justice. But what do I know, I’m just a bloke. :tongue_laugh_ee:

I understand that Ellen has her following but she’s just a talk show host! She’s not a rock star. She hasn’t invented a cure for cancer or done some huge humanitarian deed or anything. She’s just another human being who I believe doesn’t deserve all the adulation. And yet Ellen fans line up for ages just to get a glimpse of her. Really. And then I saw this Aussie bloke who admitted to being close to tears upon meeting her. Really? All I can say is that guy must be an impostor posing as an Aussie because it’s always been my understanding that it takes a lot more than meeting a stray Yank to make us cry.

Still, Ellen is a tourist and as such she should be welcomed by us and treated to a great time while visiting our lovely country, but perhaps with a little less emotional onslaught. No screaming, no bursting in to tears and definitely no fainting at the sight of her. I reckon she would have a beter time in Australia if she could walk amongst us without having to be shepherded around by her security guards.

Citrix Monitoring Something New To Learn


Don’t you just love this technological age we live in? There’s always something new to learn. Not all that long ago I wrote a post about ERP software, something that I had never heard of previously. Today I’m writing about something else I’ve never heard about called citrix monitoring.

What Is Citrix Monitoring?

From what I can gather it’s something that has come about because of the way more and more people are interacting online. Business need to know what kind of experience people are having online while accessing their virtual desktops. Are they getting a good experience? Are their problems, if any, being resolved? Apparently this user experience data is collected by Citrix applications and the monitoring can refer to the process of collecting the data in regards to the performance of the Citrix applications. Simply put, if the user is having any sort of problem then the Citrix Monitoring is able to pick it up.

It may even go beyond whether or not they’re having a problem by actually monitoring their user experience while interacting with todays complex modern IT services. One can only imagine how important this information can be to companies IT administrators. Being on top of it can put them in from of competitors who are have absolutely no knowledge of Citrix monitoring or are simply deciding to ignore it.

I love it when people come to read my blog and it’s great when they take the time to leave a comment. I know how busy they are and it really pains me when I have to delete their comment because they didn’t follow the instructions that I leave at the beginning of my Friday Funnies post. If you don’t want your comment deleted take note that I will only accept comments from people who have liked my Facebook Fan Page! It’s really easy to do too, you just click on that link that takes you to my Fan Page and then click on the Like button. Do that and I will accept your comment. Fail to do that and I will delete it.

OK, now that we have that out of the way let’s get on with this week’s Friday Funnies. You’re going to love this one  :thumbup_tb:

Golden Syrup And Customer Service

In my last post I emphasised how important customer service was to having a successful business so I thought it only natural that Friday’s Funnies should include a modicum of what customer service is all about.  :laugh_tb:

A man with a bald head and a wooden leg is invited to a Xmas fancy dress party.
He doesn’t know what to wear to hide his head and his wooden leg, so he writes to a fancy dress company to explain his problem. A few days later he receives a parcel with a note:

tech support

Dear Sir,
Please find enclosed a Pirate’s outfit. The spotted handkerchief will cover your bald head and with your wooden leg you will be just right as a Pirate.

The man is offended that the outfit emphasizes his disability, so he writes a letter of complaint..

A week passes and he receives another parcel and note

Dear Sir,
Sorry about the previous parcel. Please find enclosed a monk’s habit. The long robe will cover your wooden leg and with your bald head you will really look the part.

The man is really incandescent with rage now, because the company has gone from Read the rest of this entry
