The post title says it all. ESPN’s AUTOPLAY feature on all their videos is crap. Here’s my story: I fucking lost my job because of it. Every workplace has their own IT policy, so we have too, but if it were not for that stupid autoplay feature, I could have saved my butt for getting kicked out of work.
The autoplay feature was really not a problem until I was caught visiting the ESPN’s site, reading an NBA game recap with a streaming video of Kobe Bryant making a jump shot! Ain’t that SWEET? To make things worst, there was a screenshot of it and they would not believe that the fucking video autoplayed! Anyways, I can’t blame them, I had the option to pause/stop the video, but I failed to do it (who would not want to see Kobe miss that jump shot!). I was guilty of visiting the site to read Hollinger’s articles but I DID NOT for-God’s-sake PLAY THE VIDEO. Period. So that’s it, I was caught, now I’ll be leaving my employer, SWEET!
December 31 will be my last day at work, and after that, I will be officially UNEMPLOYED! I have to look for other “sidelines” to earn money from and look for a new job. **I have to update my Resume first.
On a lighter note, since this hosting space and domain that I am using came in free with my employment, I think I will be ordering a paid hosting package so I can keep everything that I have here. So by next week, I’ll be transferring the site to a new package, and I hope it’s not going to be a bumpy ride. Anyways, I will be announcing when I will do it.
