The other day, a warning came up on my computer screen with something like “…symantec disabled…”. Alan, our IT pro, needed to be informed. Instead of writing the whole warning message down, I thought it would be much smarter to take a picture and email it to him. Not only wrong; bizarre, thought Stefano who was passing by. He told me there is a button on the keypad that allows you to print the screen. What a revelation! This is my level of computer literacy.
Alan Kok is one of those tech guys whose emails are undecipherable and you need an interpreter younger than 21 to make sense of them. Other than that, he is perfect. He is very knowledgable and always available to log into our server from wherever he is; he comes regularly to the office to check things out (on the left, Alan, at my desk trying to fix some new mess I made) and has lunch with us. YES! This techie loves our foods, too. He could drink our Cafaggio EV Olive Oil straight from the bottle! So we made an agreement: his professional services are partially paid with food purchased from Gustiamo. This is great, we need him so much, we wouldn’t be able to afford him otherwise. This is a Win Win situation, as they say.
