Right, so… I was gone for a while, and now I’m back. I thought about writing some dramatic reason for my absence, but the truth is, it’s not that interesting. So there. I’m back because I need an outlet or I will lose my precious mind (it’s entirely possible that I’ve already lost it).
Here’s some fucking wisdom for you (#20)
If you’ve been employed in the same position for a year, and still need to ask how and where to save a file, you’re:
A) Clearly not fit for this job, and/or
B) Spend too much time in a drunken crack smoking stupor with Rob Ford. In either instance, seriously get the fuck out of here already.
These types of questions have come up in the past. That’s what inspired this post, and this post, oh and also this post. Right.
Today I was asked to explain the system, in which this person has been using every. single. day.
McHuh: Soooo ummm-like. Where do you, like… save that? Or something? Just how does this work?
We’re talking about a three step system here. Three steps. Uno, dos, tres. It’s actually quite simple, but this is how I’d like to simplify it even more.
The ‘working’ folder will now be labelled,
Oh HIIII! Oh hello, there. Nice shirt, you look great. So I see you’re working on something? Oh, great. Good for you. So since you’re working on something, why don’t you place that file here for the time being. Just double click me, and inside you will find a folder with the subject in where I belong.
The ‘approved/final product’ folder will now be labelled,
Oh hey you! Is that a finished product I see there? Well, I’ll be damned. Good job. You keep up that good work. High fives, hugs, smiles, etc. Well, since that is a finished product, why don’t you come over here and double click me? Then you can place me in the appropriate subject folder that has to do with that awesome thing you just made. Wow, you are SO fucking awesome. Kick ass.
The ‘original development’ material folder will now be labelled,
Oh, it’s you again? What’s up? Oh I know! You’ve finished that product, but still would like to keep all of those raw files you worked so hard on, just in case there are further modifications in the future. Smart thinking. A+ Champ!! Why don’t you just double click me, and put me in the that folder that has to do with the subject of your project. Is that a new hair cut? You look great. Let’s do lunch.
Is that so hard? IS IT?!!
