Technology Fails

Working in technology I always have my eye out for the good, the bad and the downright ugly in technology, this rant is about the latter and the failure of many technology developers to get it right. So an example, this happens many times but I will use the most recent one as there was…

Jasper

Took this in Jasper a few months back, one goal of the new year is to pay more attention to pictures. Probably spend sometime reviewing older pictures and then try to keep on top of new ones.
