Today was the first day of the biggest trade show my company is part of. IMTS – International Manufacturing Technology Show.
My gosh is it a big show. I got a chance to wander around half of the hall we are in. It would take all week to see everything in all the halls.
I went there to be on site to make sure that the automatic lead routing stuff I have been working on for the last 6 months worked ok.
I never got a chance to try it.
One of the computers went down, and so I spent half a day trying to get that working again. I gave up. Not sure what’s wrong with it. It’s under warranty. The manufacturer can figure it out.
I spent the other half of the day customizing the stuff I wrote for this show so that it’s more useful to the people who end up following up on the leads. First, I had to turn all on sorts of extra security so that my work with the server is 100% encrypted. I don’t want some bored 16 year old sitting on the lakefront sniffing the wifi packets and getting access to my stuff.
I am laying here in bed, getting ready to work on it some more tonight. We found a bunch of little stuff as I was tweaking it for the show today. I want to get some of this stuff ticked off the list while it’s quite and 29 people aren’t coming through the door every minute.
It’s going to be a long night.
