I’m sorry, but most of my entries are going to be about personal shit until the bombing starts.
I’m not sure if I’m just lazier, or if the power of the almighty dollar has lost its appeal, but I treat overtime differently lately. It used to be I’d work seven hours on the weekend and think, whooo hoo, now I’m only thirteen hours from a sixty hour week! The last couple of months, though, I’ve worked a five hour weekend and thought, yeee haw, now I can sleep in one hour each day and still hit forty hours!
Undeniably, work has slowed down. Used to be I was the only engineer (and I use that term loosely) assigned to a huge, time-demanding account. Now I’m one of four compentent engineers assigned to a huge but recently rather slow account. Keep in mind that I’ve gotten myself (quite by accident) assigned to some ongoing infrastructure projects, but those aren’t quite the same as having a customer yelling in your ear. I can always just put shit off a week or two, just because I “didn’t have time.”
So I find myself surfing a lot at work. Hell, I’m man enough to admit that I’ve run out of shit to surf. I’m tired of going to blogs that point out new smoking guns, or deny that the current guns are smoking, or whatever the fuck. People, I need some new shit to surf.
So send me links. Send me emails full of redneck jokes. Send me something, or I may have to take some of those projects off the back-burner, and then who knows what kinda shit I’ll break. Trust me, you don’t wanna see what I can break. I’m the guy behind the guy behind the very working of the Internet.
