It takes a very special sort of cat to be an Office Cat. You have to have patience, willing and a feline flourish when it comes to the filing. Most of the time, us Office Cats look like we are dozing, but we are the essential hard drive (HD), random access memory (RAM) and cache needed to keep the place running. We are taking on board thousands of terabytes per second whilst displaying and outwardly serene composure. It is hard work processing that many instructions from our databases. What you see, the human, is a sleeping lazy cat, laying in amongst the files and paperwork... what we are, is honed specialists in data manipulation.
This picture is a fine example of Office Cat topology. We are connected to both the shredder and other peripheral devices within the office even whilst in stand-by mode. Should a co-worker use any of these devices, it is our job to make sure that product is suitable for use. Mr.Zeus must do a SecurityCat check and more importantly, a risk assessment. The shredder is a fine example of this. It takes Mr.Zeus all of 3.2secs to don his fluorescents and check every component from plug to button, then once he has deemed the device safe for use, Faith is waiting in the wings for her random quality checks. "When the shredder is working, hard hats must be worn." says Mr.Zeus. But Faith is in there already, paws deep, dragging out the shredded paper to make sure all bank account details are destroyed, she promptly devours any important printed text and spits out any that are irrelevant. She is a honed device all of her own that one and a real asset to the business.
When you see a cat sitting on paperwork, to the untrained eye, it is just a cat sitting on paperwork. But to an Office Cat we are providing one of the most beneficial services known in today’s technology - scan to email and scan to file. Our document management system is totally unique. Take a closer look at the way we scan the page.
1. sit on said document.
2.Open the '3rd eye'
3. move slowly along the page (pretend you are washing)
4.Use Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to turn into usable data
5. Transfer data to the HD.
Of course, to the casual observer, nothing is happening... but check out the eyes and you are sure to see a data stream passing accross them at rapid speeds.
Should we fail in any area of our important positions, then we are entitled to time out and a re-boot to our over worked servers are usually in order. It's no good overworking our parameters which will only result in chip overload or meltdown. That's when it's time to take five on top of the printer to resume normal function!
