I was sitting in a conference room today refereeing an argument with the project manager who decided at the last minute that the server configuration was not what it should be for Friday morning’s go-live when I noticed the phone.
Our phones have programmable buttons. Users can program them to be whatever they want to be. This phone sits in a conference room so I was really surprised to see there were any buttons programmed.
It was the “Fire Laser” button that caught my attention. I was impressed that the person resisted the urge to make the Monkeys button the same as the Executives. And Robots was also a nice touch.
The meeting must have been short because the other page of programmable button options was just the standard defaults. I kept the other IT manager from resetting the phone as he threatened to do upon seeing it. I found entertainment in it and figured maybe someone else would need it too. Plus, to type all of those buttons out using the keypad took time – I appreciated the dedication and thought others should too.
