More on Vine!

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

As an addendum to our previous blog post, here is an article written by Christina Chaey on the great news-gathering tool viewer, Vineviewer.

Creep on Vine with vineviewer.co

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Firefall Pro and SS+K got together to make vineviewer.co and we are pretty pumped about it! You’ve heard of vine, right? It’s the newest app to share 6 second videos and now you can use vineviewer.co to search by hashtag and pull up a page of videos to enjoy (or get creeped out by since we are not responsible for whatever crazy things people post). We loaded it with cats to start you off because the internet loves cats and damnit so do we. So check it out! Search the Vine and see what you find. VineViewer-1

The Lights Are Back at Firefall Pro

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Greetings from Firefall Pro

Dear Clients and Friends:

We wanted to take a moment and reflect on the events of Hurricane Sandy last week.

We hope everyone is safe and secure throughout the Tri-state area, and our thoughts are with those that continue to be without power and basic necessities, which will be further compounded by the upcoming Nor’easter storm on Wednesday. If there’s anything we can do to be of assistance, call us at 917-464-5231, or E-mail us at info@firefallpro.com. Day or night, it doesn’t matter.

With services restored to our offices this weekend, we began bringing all systems back online. I’m happy to report that our web hosting platform maintained full availability, without interruption. As of today, we’ve resumed normal operations at full capacity, and we’ll be reaching out to all our clients with ongoing projects to make sure that everything’s ok, and to get back in sync. And feel free to let us know how you’re doing, as it’ll help us breathe a little easier, and worry a bit less.

Thank you for your support as we work to get NYC back up and running again.

Always at your service,

The Firefall Pro Team

Open for business, always.

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

As New Yorkers begin the hard road to recovery, I’m happy to report that our team is safe and secure, and that we’re continuing to assist our clients in any way that we can. As our offices in Manhattan (and everything below 27th street) remain powerless, we’ll continue to be reachable at info@firefallpro.com, or at 917-464-5231.

Thanks for your patience and understanding. More updates to come, here on Firelight.

Camarederie and Wombattery in the Firefall Pro Headquarters

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

We’ve recently had some inquiries regarding the various departments and staff within the FireFall Pro Headquarters. So, here we are to dispel rumors, and to enlighten those who may be interested in gaining further knowledge about our company.

Our tentative mascot (as of July 17, 2012)

Meet Harry the baby wombat. He’s thoroughly upset when people misspell his name (see: “Hairy”, Hairball”, “Hairywomb”). Don’t make this mistake.

Our PR Department
One may believe that our PR department consists of a handful of people (if you’ve called our office, you may have had the pleasure of speaking to multiple representatives), but in actuality we just hired a voice actor to play the role of three different employees – Scott, Jess, and Lily. Hiring voice actors is advantageous because it reduces the workload of employees and gives the impression that we in fact care enough to have you on hold for 15 minutes while we “forward you to a higher up”.

Our Resources Department
Thanks to our Craigslist solicitors (refer to our Illiteracy Contest Awards), we have a plethora of potential employees we could recruit on our team. Fortunately, we don’t want any of them.

Our S’mores & Liquor Department
Have you ever seen the show “The IT Crowd”? This department is comparable to that show– they hide out in a basement and only ever come out for office parties, i.e. every day after 5 when S’mores and Liquor make an appearance.

This list is already getting too long and bothersome to deal with. Call our Customer Service Department if you want to know more: (917) 464-5231

Until next time, fellow readers!

[Insert feisty cat noise here]

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

For those of you unaware, life as Jess Tayts The Project Manager is stressful. Lots of irregular sleep patterns due to all-weekend Phish festivals, lots of Project Managing-esque jobs to tend to, and on top of all of that — lots of tormenting and an unusually large display of hate from Scott P. You may wonder who this “Scott” character is; to many he’s an anomaly, to others (by “others” we mean Jess) he’s the equivalent of Jewish hell if Jewish hell were in existence.

If we had to describe this “Scott” guy more accurately, we would plaster his face on the head of a feisty cat whose owners neglect to feed him. Lack of food equals lack of affection. Occasionally, Jess attempts to feed him in an effort to loosen him up and prevent him from lashing out on her. Sadly, her efforts are futile.

Introducing…

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

Our lovely new addition to the office, Norman the Narwhal. Sometimes he wanders around the office in a drunken stupor –looking for people who are willing to listen to him mumble incoherently about his love-hate relationship with Charlie the unicorn (after all, Charlie is far more handsome and less plump) or  even topics as far-fetched as the internet’s infatuation with cat memes over narwhal memes. And, sometimes…oh who are we kidding– all of the time, he’s typically whimpering in a corner over his lack of narwhal fame. Even in his states of sobriety, he manages to maneuver his plump self into some section of the office in order to cause havoc.

Seriously, who isn’t turned on by LOLcats’ repertoire of sexy one-liners? But narwhals…narwhals…well, they’re a different type of breed. Unique. Whimsical. Plump. Perhaps less cute, but always bringing with them a good time.
