The work of our consultants is often thankless. We are called to problems which, in the eyes of users seem insurmountable, perhaps miss time to understand the problem even if the solution is trivial as a click on the one hand and a canc other.

When we solve this way, in front of the customer, that maybe even thanks us, as if the banality of what made the huge problemone this 10 seconds before a no-brainer, let alone to ask if "we need something."

Today I reflected on this and I just came to mind the history of mechanical and hammer. For those who do not know the story briefly.

A driver takes his car by a mechanic as this is not starting anymore. The mechanical controls it, the dismantled piece piece, the comeback, but can not understand where the problem is.

The driver took the car to another mechanic where it is repeated without the problem solve, and so with another mechanic and another.

Finally the last mechanic that opens the door hood of the car, the controls, after which, take a hammer and a hammer on the engine. Therefore asks the driver to check if the machine restarts and, wonder of wonders, the motor starts and goes which is a beauty.

Motorists very happy and pleased the mechanic asks the price of labor. The mechanic says, "I am two hundred euros." "Well, two hundred euros for a blow to me it seems an exaggeration," replies the driver. To which the mechanic says, "The hammered actually costs only 10 cents. The remaining 199.90 euros have to know where to give the hammer. "

God, sometimes I regret not having done the right plastic surgeon.

I write little?

Will be a period of quiet and leave but I have very little desire to write. Even those who follow me on Twitter and Facebook you will be aware of my absence.

The last post where I analyze the book by Kathy Reichs, Bones Duecentosei, actually was written August 4 and was awaiting review. Tired, I've published almost as it is.

In reality of things to say happened in this holiday period there would be too, but I'm too busy to hang around and play America's Army 3 and then at least until the first of Settembre you'll have to put a little 'to diet by your captain.

But I promise you that in September, more rested than ever, I'll be ready to give you a hard time.

Currently it takes a few sporadic posts. Sorry.
