So What Does ASI Do?

Hiiiiii¬†guys!!!¬†Its¬†me again! Didja miss me? Didja miss me?¬†Ill¬†keep¬†pestering¬†you until you give¬†me some belly scratches, so¬†you may as well¬†‚Ästahhhhhhh, 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,¬†dont¬†actually DO¬†Insurance. Like,¬†theyre¬†not the ones that would give me a¬†new bone if¬†it got destroyed.¬†Its¬†more magical than that. And by magical, I¬†mean you¬†cant¬†see the things they do because¬†its¬†magic. Something called technology.¬†

What I can tell you¬†first hand¬†‚Äď 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¬†didnt¬†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¬†dont¬†know why humans stare at screens all day.¬†Especially the ones in their hands, that one makes them the¬†angriest! But oh well.¬†Thats¬†how Trever found me, so I¬†spose¬†its¬†a good thing! Anyway, back¬†to my point ‚Äď Trever stares at this screen all day, sometimes frustrated, sometimes elated, and sometimes with other friends at work. And magic happens!¬†

Ive 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 doesnt always work?? I know its 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 doesnt work. So, when things break, or there are glitches, or they need a new feature, thats where we come in! 

I pretended to understand this, but Trever could see that I¬†didnt. 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,¬†youve¬†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 ‚Äď those funny looking letters and numbers have multiple languages! I know! But¬†thats¬†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¬†Im¬†talking about all of this? Just me? Uh-oh!¬†Maybe¬†Im¬†thinking of Q…

We do a whole lot more, but¬†Im¬†a little overwhelmed right now, so I think¬†it’s¬†time¬†to chase¬†my tail and re-center my soul.¬†So,¬†Ill¬†be back. BYEEEEEE!!!!¬†
