The Joy of Instant Gratification

March 21, 2009

My poor employees know that I want everything to be ready right now.It’s a bit childish, but I can’t fight it.

I hate waiting 3:30 minutes for Windows to boot.It’s like watching paint dry.You really don’t have to watch all of the video. But there is a funny cat in the beginning and in the end.

I agonize when I have to work with SalesForce EMEA slow servers.

I want every IT Structures customer to get a 300GB environment, 8GB memory with 15 servers and five VLANS in running in 10 seconds.I spend my weekends reading on RDP registry hacks in order to improve the user experience into instantaneous feedback.

As the great Freddy Mercury said it

I want it all and I want it now

It probably didn’t work that well for him in the end.

It seems that most vendors don’t get the need for instant reward.

It is well known that humans react well to short, timely  feedback  but I just waited 10 seconds watching the annoying hourglass icon  because I tried to install Babylon while writing  this blog entry. My hard disk crashed, so I’m reinstalling everything from scratch….

This brings me to the great next clip by Samsung. This is the hard soft drive that I want !

It fires up all of office applications in 0.5 a second  and would probably never crash on me since there are no moving parts.

And in the same notion , IE8 is finally out so the Microsoft  browser actually makes 6 HTTP concurrent requests instead of two.

I once hoped it will speed up the Web by 20% . Lets see if it does. In the mean time, maybe I should learn from the French to enjoy the slowness in life.
