Salesforce Fail Connect Offline 2.0

There is a program that will work within Salesforce, it is called Connect Office Offline Briefcase 2.0. They are really a dumb company and I will tell you why.

I got to the point where i logged in and was able to sync the database, then it told me that that I had an activiex issue and force.salesforce.com needed to be rebooted. Tech support said it need to have I.E. 8 or 7, so after calling and having them work 4 hrs on my computer, they could not get it to work and said it was up to my administrator. Well, you know how crazy of an answer that is.

I told them, if you have your parameters than SOMEONE in your group has tested it and this is not the first time anyone has had I.E. 9-11 setup especially as there are security risks otherwise. Non the less he and his supervisor sounded like robots and told me that it should be somewhere on the net. Absolute lunacy for them to have a product that does not work on a current browser platform. I also tried uninstalling I.E. 11 and used f12 developer tools to allow for downgrade of versions on the fly, but nothing would work. We went further than the Salesforce tech. did and still did not get satisfaction.

My question was, does anyone use it? I am just in disbelief that I pushed to 3rd tier support and got nowhere.

This is a real Salesforce Black Eye.

Maybe you can get this working and find a solution.

Atrial Fibrillation – AFIB & Coffee Under Control

HAVA CUP of Coffee?… Don’t most of us love that first cup in the morning. It is great, no it’s wonderful, and those that don’t just don’t get it.

I have been drinking 3-5 cups and more of coffee my whole adult life. Last year I was diagnosed with having Arterial Flutter, (affectionately known as AFib,  which annoying at best. You will be amazed on how many people have this and blow it off or do not get it diagnosed).

After several panic attacks and ER visits and stays for observation and thinking I was going to die, testing my reactions and trying some drugs to control it, not much was working well to keep it at bay. Under the care of Kaiser, I have been quite pleased with my Doctors and Nurse Practitioners, NPR Denise Middleton, Cardiologist Dr. Mark Timothy Deboer, Dr. David Cesario, M.D. Electro-cardiologist specialist in ablations.   
Daily, Doctors experiment on what they should do for you. You are their science experience and they have less than 15 minutes at a time to figure out what prescribe or do next. The old, “take two aspirins and call me in the morning” Why do you think the medical industry calls Doctors work a Practice? My opinion, Afib is one of the most illogical health issues on the planet. Hard to pin down a regiment that will work. You must be proactive and work with them, and use your own logic and give them solid information, so they can make better choices.

Early on, I was asked by my Doctor to stop drinking coffee, and I blew that off until about 40 days ago. I stopped drinking “cold turkey” and any symptoms, no headaches, a little tired, but thats it. Then I realized that I really did like that one cup in the morning, so I allowed myself one cup in the morning, none at night.

15 days into it, with LITTLE or NO  coffee, I have little or no symptoms of Afib, yes I am more tired, but that is ok. I have had better, less interrupted nights sleep than ever.

I got Rheemed when I installed my PROG-40U RH58 50gal Water Heater

This week my water finally died and it needed replacing. As a DYI’er I knew Rheem, American, and Bradford and White were good brands. I also know when I need to let a professional plumber do his job for me.

I ordered an equivalent Rheem water heater from Smarden Supply Co. in Fountain Valley, CA. My plumber friend of 10 years, Jose of J to Z Plumbing, who also buys and works with Smarden Supply.

As a DYI’er I can tell you that Jose performed a beautiful install. We turned on the water and fired up the heater and it immediately started making this loud and very annoying high-pitched noise. My plumber was mystified as I was, in my 30 years of plumbing and his longer time of experience we had never hear this noise.

I called the Smarden Supply and they had not heard of it and referred me to an 800 number of Rheem. This is where it gets good. I spent 20 minutes waiting for a guy that said he knew about various places that have had this issue and he wanted me to try all kinds of external tests, like bending the flex gas line or turning down the valve. I said this is really ridiculous, this has something to do with your design. I had called from work and they needed me to get the model and serial number off the machine and call back. I got a case number for the call back.

I called back the next day and got a new person and they said that she could not authorize a guy to come out and that she had not heard of this issue and wanted me to call my plumber out at my expense to troubleshoot the issue. I said, this is a bloody water heater, it is not rocket science, it is a thing you plug water into and give it gas and light it, nothing more.  I asked to speak to her supervisor and she sent me unannounced to 2nd tier support and it took 45 minutes to get the call actually transferred. 2nd tier gave me the same brick wall as to they could send someone out but if it is anything that we did, we would have to pay for the call. I again explained that the gas and water hookups are all standard and there is no reason for any variations and that I was not going to be responsible.
I patiently spoke to her for about 30 min and then I asked her to speak to her supervisor which she did not want to, and had me on hold for 10 min and came back with the same answer that she could not guarantee, I was getting angry and upset and reinforced that I wanted to speak to her supervisor. She put me on hold for another 15-20 min and finally came back and said she would have a very top notch plumbing, Collier Plumbing come out.

Collier Plumbing was courteous and came out and fixed the issue in less than 15 minutes. The service representative said that this was common with the Low NOX Rheem water heaters do thousands, not hundreds, but THOUSANDS of these heaters. There is a plate that is near the gas outlet inside the burner area that needs to be tweaked because it resonates from the gas and fire flowing past it. Crazy.
After the service call was done and we had a few days of no noises, I then I called Smarden Supply, in Fountain Valley, CA and let AJ Benton, one of the head Managers or Owner about how badly I was treated and had I not had any DIY experience, Rheem would have walked all over me. As it is my time that I bill out for my services is around $80/hr. and these guys burned up about 3 hrs of my time, not to mention the Good Will I was not going to pass on about Rheem. AJ of Smarden Supply was very interested about the issue as this will kill his sales if there anyone gets hold of this review.I have worked with Smarden for many years and they are a good company with great customer service. Think that Rheem should have put in a factory insert or bulletin  about this issue so Smarden could help and not end up with an upset customer. I will not purchase Rheem products and will change over to buying and installing American or Bradford and White products, which are equally as good.
A important aside : The service guy told us to expect this water heater to fail within 5 years and if you get it repaired it will not last much longer. He said they just do not make water heaters to last like they used to.

In conclusion, and with the note from the service person,  I think that Rheem should consider some kind of compensation for this horrible missing Customer Service and I will consider changing my review.

so, don’t get Rheemed, by American

Just what is a Fire Extinguisher with a rating of 2 – A, 10 – BC



Class A Ratings

A fire extinguisher rated for class A fires is intended for use on fires involving Ordinary Combustibles such as wood, paper, cloth or plastics. Class A extinguishers are rated from 1 – A through 40 – A. The number in front of the A represents an amount of water or, if another extinguishing agent is used, how much fire that extinguishing agent will put out as compared to the rated amount of water. A Class 1 – A water extinguisher contains 1 1/4 gallons of water; a Class 2 – A extinguisher contains 2 1/2 gallons of water, or twice the 1 – A capacity.

Class B Ratings

A fire extinguisher rated for class B fires is intended for use on fires involving Flammable and Combustible Liquids and Gases such as gasoline, oil, lacquer, paint, mineral spirits and alcohol. Class B extinguishers are rated from 1 – B through 640 – B. The rating is based on the approximate square foot area of a flammable liquid fire that a non-expert operator can extinguish. The non-expert operator is expected to be able to extinguish 1 square foot of fire for each numerical rating or value.

Class C Ratings

A Class C fire is essentially a Class A or B fire where the fuel involved is energized with electricity. A Class C rating confirms that the extinguishing agent will not conduct electricity. The Class C rating is assigned in addition to the rating for Class A and/or Class B fire extinguishers.

Class D Ratings

A fire extinguisher rated for class D fires is intended for use on fires involving Combustible Metals such as aluminum, magnesium, titanium, zirconium, sodium and potassium. A Class D fire extinguisher is rarely needed outside of the industrial or professional firefighting setting.

To put all of this information together, a fire extinguisher with a rating of 2 – A, 10 – BC should extinguish the same amount of fire as a 2 1/2 gallon water extinguisher or extinguish a liquid fire that is 10 square feet in size and the extinguishing agent will not conduct electricity.
