Avatar 2:52pm
kat330:

Really? Gee. I started on just about the first day. Waited with all the overload, got a supposed account, but then it has never let me successfully login since. A 90-min. phone call to fill out the Fed app (IN has no program of its own) ended w/ the rep saying she was booted off at the last min. and couldn't confirm whether the app had made it through or not. Can't check, because STILL not allowed a successful login.

@James: Oh, yes, it's definitely beyond sheer volume as an issue. But I have wondered if TeaBag states like Indiana, w/ a Guvnur who rejected Fed Medicaid funds and leaving us to fend for ourselves, are the ones with the most issues. I had a thought that perhaps the Koch Bros. bribed CGI to make sure the program was effed up.

I will maybe read/watch the news in another life. No time or need in this one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm
listener james from westwood:

from what i've heard, state-run registries are working much more smoothly. sadly, i think it's washington-insider contractor screwery thus far more than outside influences (tho' i wondered if maybe the anti-ACA folks were overwhelming the servers during that 1st week; would not put it past the party that once had a group like creep and the plumbers under its aegis).

I suppose some of you are talking about the medical care thing.

There was a significantly long period in which I did the same -- watched / heard no news as I was already way too blue -- but I came out the other side of that. I still don't watch very much, but Colbert & Stewart are must-sees for me.

Who gives news, instead of "news"?
Avatar 3:11pm

@Bliss: tying your g--gle entanglement with the ACA computer debacle, there was a finely funny piece by John Oliver on The Daily Show, where he's sucked into the glitch-y program a la Tron. It's ha-larious.
Avatar 3:14pm
kat330:

@James: But if you think about it, a million-dollar bribe is pocket change for the Kochs, and it would be so easy to screw up code for that sort of money. CGI's a Canadian company IIRC, so it would seem they'd have their sh*t together.

It's hard to keep using the same stuff when many others upgrade.

Wikipedia got thousands of people to contribute info for free so that Facebook could copy it wholesale and make fake pages about all entities, in part to entice every entity to make their own pages to try to remove all that info. Facebook made a ton of money doing that. Didn't cost them anything.

For some reason I chose a Kenzo archive instead of my usual archives. Yes, we are here later, listening, commenting, making dinner....

Why are your callers so confused by the delay? Are you fluxing the timeshifter live?

Are the listeners who are not one your list before on your list now? HOLY SHIT! You *DID* mention my name on your list at 1:18, even though I am timeshifting by nearly a week. You amaze me, sir.

Regarding your "More and more, and with each step, I feel more is missing" comment about the website, remember the first fallacy of computing: There is no deficiency in software which can't be remedied with more software. Wrong! Less is more.
Avatar 7:45pm
Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@Droll: Oh gosh, "more software" is definitely the opposite of what I meant. The more technology is added to our lives, the more anything real is missing.
