Techie Talk

A major aspect of my work is dealing with technology, but it’s not too often I write about technology on my website. I think my website helps to get my mind off work/technology when I need a break from it. Well today’s entry is about technology (sort of).

Yesterday, a Project Manager from work came by my desk and asked me what an iFrame looks like because he wanted to confirm what he thought it was. For all you non-techie people, an iFrame is a square box on a web page that allows you to render another web page within the context of the existing web page.

With a very serious look on my face, I said “here, let my draw it on my white board”. So still having a serious look on my face, I took a marker and started drawing it on the white board in my office. Watching me carefully draw what he expected to be an iFrame, the PM was quite surprised when the picture I was drawing turned out to be a big penis and two testicles.

We had a good laugh over that one. It was actually payback because only one day earlier, Malcolm came by my desk while I was on the phone with somebody else, and while he was waiting for me to get off the phone, he drew a penis and testicles on my white board.
