Get over it everybody...it will get better.

Here is a story everybody can relate to. I will try to keep it short.

Because where I work we have so many different IT systems and things to look up, every customer service employee should have two computer monitors. In my 30+ years working in IT I can tell you its a no brainier. When you work on a computer all day comparing data from multiple systems...2 monitors are better than 1. 3 are better than 2....and on and on up to NASA level.

You can't believe how much our customer service reps cried about it. Why do I need 2 monitors. Can I get 2 square ones instead of these 2 widescreen monitors. What am I supposed to with 2 monitors. Why do things have to change. This just happened over the last two days. I guarantee you in 2 weeks if we tried to take the 2nd monitor away from them we would have to wrestle it from their cold dead hands.

The point is...Change sucks! Change is not fun...but it is necessary. Does anybody really need a confederate flag? Does it really matter if you ride a gasoline powered motorcycle or an electric motorcycle. Its coming, get over it.

I hate change....I get it. Wait til your parents get too old to care for themselves. Your kids will get in trouble when you least expect it and throw you for a loop. Kaka happens all day long....get over it.

I have nothing against change at all. "The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth" is an adage that I have adhered to all my life. However. If the changes make the visiting this forum less pleasurable then I will naturally be less inclined to visit it.

I now see more ads than I saw before. I have a sidebar that I did not have before and and a few other annoying little things that maybe will disappear with familiarity. To me it is a somewhat backward step, but that is only me. I understand that I have absolutely no right to have a say in it because I am a relative Noob who only contributes the time and words, no subscription generosity. But, the revenue from advertising comes about based on the amount of "floor traffic" so to speak. So non financially contributing members are maybe not just as important, but somewhat important, to the ongoing success of this site as the subs members are.

You cannot please all the sods all the time, especially this one, but at least you are allowing us to have a little rant about it for a while.

Coops.

When somebody suggested that I was delusional, I almost fell off my unicorn.

Well said man, this is the exact scenario I see after 200+ conversions on our network.

If someone tried to take my second widescreen I would burn or smash things.

I have stopped checking this site with my phone as I cannot get a view that works for me. The enhanced mobile view just takes to long to find my friends and their topics, it seems difficult to read and to use and the exit mobile view has left me trapped in a view filled with large photos and difficult to read threads with no mobile option for classic VR. I'll try to find a thread here from other mobile users and how they are solving the accessibility issue on their phones. I hope no one is posting important stuff about Chewelah, or Duffy or other important to me threads!

Too many features for someone who just wants to know what is going on with his VR friends.
