Comment They May Not Know (Score 1) 247

It's possible the list was snagged by a disgruntled (or ex) employee who sold the list. The Powers That Be may not believe the list has been compromised. A few back channel comments and/or a FB isn't actionable proof.

I'd post to their support email line (I'm assuming they have one?) and provide the unique email address you used. Provide more detail than this post. Then if they still ignore, share it on publicly as a public service to their other customers.

I had a friend that was in a similar situation. A company that handled their mass emails had an employee grab a ~ton~ of addresses when he quit. It took a few reports, but once they realized what had happened, they acted.

Comment Index into the old system (Score 1) 379

Can you link to docs in the old system? If so, create Google docs that are organized links into the old system. You want to see the minutes from all the meetings over the last year? Here's that page of links. Budgets? Here it is.

Over time you'll make the Google Docs the de factor standard. Once everyone is accustomed to using Google docs, you can start creating new docs in any system. Including Google docs.

This will gradually wean people off the old system without any single, massive switch. And hopefully it'll be a nice, gradual process.

btw, if the old system doesn't support links into documents, you can ask Bob to add it.

Comment Post Transplant? (Score 1) 988

Didn't most of the nasty comments come after the transplant? Other transplant recipients I've known have to live on prednisone (or something similar). Prednisonemakes me nasty after a few days. I'm no Jobs apologist, but I wonder how much of the vitriol was due to living on something like that?
