I'm quitting: SoFo author threatens
Disenchanted with cutting edge software, Australian author Sean Hegarty may leave the industry he stumbled into by accident, it was revealed today.
Hegarty, author of Sonata for Unfinished Yelling, claimed the confusion surrounding Movable Type was "110 per cent responsible" for his disillusionment and frustration.
"I thought that Movable Type would make my journal look sexier, give my readers more input and choice, and abolish world hunger," he sniffed.
Instead he was taken aback by the difficulty of installing the software, and claims to have wasted "more than three days" just getting the program to run at all.
"Downloading the program was fine. I just clicked on something and it starting downloading. After a while, it finished. I had all the files I needed on my computer. But it's been bad news ever since."
Becoming increasingly agitated, Hegarty began wondering what else he could do with his life. "I don't mind writing SoFo," he said. "There's no pay, but the hours are good."
Hegarty is believed to be considering a move away from cyberspace unless his "final demand" is met.
"I want to talk to someone who can show me how to use Movable Type. I need help. Otherwise SoFo ends here."
He wanted to upload an image file of himself pointing a revolver at a computer, but couldn't work out how to do so.Posted by Sean Hegarty at 06:54 PM in the Movable Type vs. SoFo category | Comments (0)
