Bugger – a Road Block
Aaarrrrgggggggggggghhhhhhhh. Hit a road block – a big one!
The problem with a tech start up (oooh – looky, another clue to what I am doing) is that if you aren’t a techie person the answers to your questions are super hard to understand – hmmmmmm, let me rephrase……. are written/spoken in some cyborg language from the 25th century that my brain is completely ill-equipped to grapple with. A bit like asking my 2-year-old to complete an equation using matrix multiplication. Ahhhhhhhhh HSC mathematics – I knew you would come in handy one day – and here it is!
Before I celebrate that happy occurrence though, I need to find a way to re-route Toldyah back onto the winning track. I am so STUCK on a nutty problem. Just how much can you compress uploaded video files from phones and cameras.
RED ALERT RED ALERT: massive clues to business idea….
Anyway, apparently the answer to my question is the same as “How long is a piece of string“. Which isn’t good enough for me. I can’t complete the financial part of the business plan, nor actually verify the business can make money (pretty important point for investors apparently) without this info. The answers I get from searches and discussions always starts with …”It depends on….” SO MANY VARIABLES!
I am a perfectionist, so getting the answer right is BUGGING me. People say to me to guess, it’ll be about right. But gees, the best and worst scenarios make a break even date that is light years apart. How can I sound like I have a clue when presenting that to Bill, Richard, Bernard or Carlos!
I do need to decide ASAP – have to finalise the BP so I can get the website started. Ahhhh – there we have another challenge – how to write a brief that sounds like it is written in 25th Century Cyborg. Anyone got a Cyborg to English translator handy?
BTW – the best 2 answers for the string question in my opinion:
- About Yay long
- Double the distance from middle to one end.
