from DAVE by Robert Fitterman

from DAVE

  • This is it, Dave, this is your moment to shine.
  • Morning Dave… I hope you’re planning on brewing up a pot of that special Dave java? Adam just made a pot, but hey, what can I say… you have that special touch.
  • Hey Dave, how was your weekend? Do anything special?
  • Dave, did you respond to this? It’s the last call to sign-up for the Information Mapping training in Denver. You’re on the list. It’s just a 1-day training session mostly showing us how to use the upgrade. You’ll get certification as an Information Mapping Professional. I’m going… you’re going, right?
  • Hey Dave, you were referred to me by Ken as an expert who might be willing to assist in the Info Blast, the drive to cross-train employees on functionality across products. I understand you have a solid understanding of the B2B product that might benefit the B2C group, and I’d like to ask for your help in creating a B2B training deck, outlining major product features.
  • Dave, someone should tell Rog to go home. He’s like sneezing and coughing all over everyone. I mean, I appreciate that he wants to get his work done but he’s bringing in a flu or cold or something and he’s like blowing his nose all over the place. I gave him a look, but… I don’t know… I would say something but it’s awkward.
  • So it’s coming through in HTML format. If someone is not getting yours in HTML format, they have their mail client set to do plain text only, possibly due to ease of use if they operate in PGP encrypted mail quite a lot. Keep me posted.
  • Good morning, Dave! I hope you had a fun and restful weekend. Could you give me an accurate ETA for your Info Blast deck delivery? I think you’d mentioned delivering it by the 15th at the latest.
  • Dave, did you get that email about using Printer Location 2? It doesn’t make any sense, we’re closer to Printer Location 1. Now we have to go clear across the whole office, and it’s a different kind of printer—I don’t even know how that printer works. Did you change yet to Printer Location 2? I’m not even sure if I know how to do that. Are we supposed to do the set-up, or is it just automatic? Maybe it’s an option? Maybe we can set it up so that we can use either location, is that it?
  • It’s all in the mind people! It’s the soul inside the soul. Right, Dave?
