Hiiiiii guys!!! It‘s me again! Didja miss me? Didja miss me? I‘ll keep pestering you until you give me some belly scratches, so you may as well – ahhhhhhh, thanks!!!!
Uh. Sorry about that. I just get so excited to see people! I love people! But I’m calm now. And so focused. Because I realize I fell asleep last time before I could explain that even though I talked all about Insurance, ASI humans, uh, don‘t actually DO Insurance. Like, they‘re not the ones that would give me a new bone if it got destroyed. It‘s more magical than that. And by magical, I mean you can‘t see the things they do because it‘s magic. Something called technology.
What I can tell you first hand – er, paw, is that Trever stares at a screen and things happen. But he gets mad at the screen at ASI for ‘code fixes not working‘, and I didn‘t know how that was different from getting mad at the big screen at home when ‘all the good players are online now, darn it‘. I don‘t know why humans stare at screens all day. Especially the ones in their hands, that one makes them the angriest! But oh well. That‘s how Trever found me, so I s‘pose it‘s a good thing! Anyway, back to my point – Trever stares at this screen all day, sometimes frustrated, sometimes elated, and sometimes with other friends at work. And magic happens!
I‘ve been keeping my floppy ears open the past few weeks and have started picking up on what this is all about. It turns out technology doesn‘t always work?? I know it‘s a crazy thought but stick with me here. We work with the insurance companies I talked about last week and help them fix things when their technology doesn‘t work. So, when things break, or there are glitches, or they need a new feature, that‘s where we come in!
I pretended to understand this, but Trever could see that I didn‘t. So, he explained. You know when you fill out a form online (like if you change your address), and then you get an email right away that says ‘Hey, you‘ve updated your address in our system, right?‘. We do that! We ‘build‘ the forms, not with tools, but with funny looking letters and numbers on the screen called ‘code‘. And get this – those funny looking letters and numbers have multiple languages! I know! But that‘s a thought for another day.
So, after we write or fix the code for the forms you fill out, we also do some more coding to make sure that an email that says the right stuff gets sent to the right person. Does anyone else hear James Bond theme music as I‘m talking about all of this? Just me? Uh-oh! Maybe I‘m thinking of Q…
We do a whole lot more, but I‘m a little overwhelmed right now, so I think it’s time to chase my tail and re-center my soul. So, I‘ll be back. BYEEEEEE!!!!
