I had hoped to blog on a regular basis as well as contribute to the discussions. But I am just so discouraged with the performance of SCN on the platforms I have available, that I just can’t justify it any longer.
I admit I am working on an older IE explorer browser and evidently it is just not capable of working well with the new SCN. I don’t have control of the desktop I’m working on. That is controlled by my client. I am not hauling around a second laptop just to access SCN. I primarily use an I-Pad for most other things and personal use. I am rarely on my home desktop. I am sure that most of the road warriors can understand that.
The performance on the I-Pad is terrible on the cellular network and only slightly better when on a wireless network. Especially when working on “guest” wireless or a publicily available network at a coffee shop, hotel, fast food network. The public networks are always marginal and never as good as mine at home.
I find I can browse fairly somewhat OK when I browse as a guest. But to log in and go back and answer discussions is extremely time consuming. Just to read, review and answer 7-8 discussions can easily take me 40-60 minutes.
So while you might see me here once in awhlle, I just can’t spend the time on SCN that I have in the past. It doesn’t really pay the bills!!!
I would love to be a daily contributor in QM. Sujit, Anand and a handful of others do a great job and hopefully they can continue to contribute. Maybe once some of my clients update their browsers, or the performance suddenly improves for my I-Pad, I’ll be back on a regular basis. In the meantime, I’ll probably be lurking around the corner.
Feel free to send me a PM. Just be aware it might take me awhile to respond. If you have specific ideas of a blog you would like to see, let me know. I can maybe write those in Word and than later on copy and paste it in so I might be able to do that once in awhile.
