Work is change at the moment. My boss has transferred to a new group and gave us a chance to go with. An easy decision as without him, we basically had no one who even had a clue what we did. So officially as of today, we're transferring to. No pay raises or moves (well, I'll be moving about fifteen feet.)
The bigger change is growth. Long-time readers will remember whining about dead offices and attrition. Now, in the last couple weeks, we've gained three and will potentially be gaining a couple more. (So far all transfers from other failing divisions.)
This, and other things I can't talk about, gives me a bit of hope for the future. I figure it'll be a good six months before it's dashed.
I'm having troubles getting back into the swing of actually doing stuff at work, though.
I still don't have one. We've been in the hotel since last Wednesday. We were originally going to check out Thursday, but we extended it to Saturday. While we can walk on the floors Thursday, we can't put furniture on them until Saturday. We decided that trying to deal with a three-year-old in three furniture packed rooms would be even more of a pain than dealing with a three-year-old in a two room hotel.
The hotel has been...a pain. The free breakfasts are no longer a novelty and I am fucking sick and tired with scrambled egg product + salsa for breakfast. Having to eat out every night is also beginning to grate. If I have to go to that damn salad buffet place one more night I will scream.
At least the rains have ended so my wife can run the kid in the park during the day.
The floors look good, though. No more water-stains and discoloration. We're looking forward to that.
Used the VM software I'm playing with to play with Symphony OS. Ugh. It always amazes me how people creating "easy-to-use" software can so badly fail to make something that's actually easy-to-use. Hint: "Easy-to-Use" != "Hide the complicated stuff where you can't get at it".
Stock Ubuntu is certainly easier to install, and probably easier to use.
