At work, whenever I want to use an image on a web page, I first have to upload it to the database - at which point it becomes known as an 'asset'.
Recently I've been experiencing a frustrating delay between uploading an image and being able to place it on a web page. So today, at a meeting with the other web editors and some of the developers, I decided to get to the bottom of the issue.
It came round to 'any other business', and the woman chairing the meeting asked if there was anything that anyone would like to raise.
"Yes," I said, rather indignantly. "I'm having trouble with my assets."
I'm sure you can imagine everyone's reaction...
