We know how to serve the adult care industry

Adult care, assisted livings, nursing homes, adult day care et al.  What do they all have in common?  Mountains of paperwork and most of these businesses do not have a proper web presence.  Most referrals for new clients come from hospitals and rehabilitation facilities, or loved ones.  But for the clients who can’t get to you through word of mouth, they will look for you online.  If they can’t find your website or it looks dated or doesn’t operate well on a mobile device, guess what?  You just lost a client, and who wants that?

The reason Bendy Computers can say it knows this industry well is because Damian, co founder of Bendy Computers, was a client in an assisted living facility in Baltimore for about 2 years.  He got an inside look at how the business works, what it’s needs are, and gained an understanding of how busy theses house managers and landlords are.

Not only can Damian build you a website, he can help with PAA Grants, SSI, SSDI Food stamps, free phones, medical insurance enrollment, and internet essentials from Comcast.  You know your clients need services, but you don’t have the time to fill out mountains of forms, or maybe you don’t know where to find the forms.  Whatever the case, Bendy Computers can help your clients get everything they are owed so they can have their needs effectively met.

Bendy Computers is not a law firm, does not offer legal advice, but merely provides administrative services and you agree to not hold liable Bendy Computers or any agent of Bendy Computers for any problems, errors, omissions, or adverse decisions in regards to any paperwork or electronic forms filled out on your behalf.

(This is baby Spanish, you know what this means.)

New Android Game in Development

A new game for Windows is in development.  We have selected the Godot engine.  We hope to ship by end of November 2021.  This was in lieu of a more complicated and less profitable microcontroller project. While microcontrollers are cool, the target market for software for them is too small.

*We have decided that Android has a larger potential install base, so we will develop for Android.  We have also switched to Game Maker Studio 2.  The book purchased on Godot development wasn’t comprehensive enough.

Former Google Employee alleges firing was retaliation for organizing

A fifth fired Google employee said she believes she was “fired in retaliation” for her labor organizing efforts within the tech giant, as the company already faces similar allegations from its firing of four other employees just days after a staff-organized protest last month.

“I was involved in organizing at Google and I do believe I was fired in retaliation,” Kathryn Spiers, 21, from California’s Bay Area, told ABC News Tuesday.

Spiers said she wrote code that sends a notification to her coworkers whenever they visit the website for an alleged union-busting firm Google reportedly hired last month.
Google said her actions were an “unacceptable breach of a trusted responsibility,” according to a copy of an email sent by Royal Hansen, the VP of technical infrastructure security and privacy, and provided to ABC News by a Google spokesperson.

Spiers “misused a security and privacy tool to create a pop-up that was neither about security nor privacy,” the email stated. “She did that without authorization from her team or the Security and Privacy Policy Notifier team, and without a business justification. And she used an emergency rapid push to do it.”

I don’t think she would have been fired if she did something like leave union leaflets in the breakroom, but she had to go and use company security systems that she did not have a need to use, or permission to use.  She took a tool intended for safety and security and turned it into a personal broadcasting tool.  There are other ways to communicate in a company, and if I was organizing a union I’d try and be more secretive and not go on the company intercom or use work computers to do it.

Anti $h1tpost toilet unveiled

Employers around the world are on notice as workers hold their breath and bowels to see if their workplace will install the new toilet from a British firm called StandardToilet.  This toilet features a downward slope of 13 degrees designed to make the user feel as if they are in a squat.  Sit on the toilet for any longer than 5 minutes and expect to feel some discomfort, the maker says.  Surely this will keep people off the phone and in the cube, right?

This news comes on the heels of the infamous smell check post, wherein an employer posted someone would conduct, “a smell check,”  if an employee was in the restroom for more than 10 minutes to see if they were on their phone, and those who were deemed not using the restroom as evidenced by smell would be reported to management.  This takes brown nosing to a new level.

I understand employers wanting to increase productivity, but ruining the only break many lower level employees who do not smoke get is not the answer.  Perhaps recognizing employees for exemplary job performance or adherence to the attendance policy would do the same thing.

In a slight coincidence, our source material was written by an author with the last name “Brown.”
