New Digs

Well, I suppose I should update everyone on my new jorb. Things have been crazy-busy over the last 3 weeks, but I’m finally feelings settled in.
I started on the 20th and since then we’ve delt with end-of-month and end-of-quarter craziness, creating a ton of reports, and moving offices…again.
We’re now back up in Building A, and I’m exactly 3 cubes down from where I was as an intern.
However, I’m never at my desk. Since we’re still basically in implementation, we work out of a War Room. In our old building, Solana, it was a fairly spacious conference room with a large window. As of today, we’re in about half the space with no windows. We’ve resorted to drawing on the white boards what we believe outdoors to be so that we don’t lose track of it.
In case I haven’t explained my new position, I’m a systems analyst for our enterprise-wide project management software. I’ve had to learn a whole hell of a lot more over the past couple weeks about projects, billing, and labor than any sane person should have to witness.

In other news, our house should start being built in the next week or so. Also, as you might have noticed, I migrated my site and Angela’s over to WordPress because even Google can’t make Blogger worthwhile. I’ve been on blogger since ~ 2001 and back then a blog was just text with a simple input frontend. Now people want to upload images, and blogger is just plain broke when it comes to uploading and formatting simple images inline with text. It doesn’t pass the girlfriend test one bit. So far, so good with WordPress, install took ~ 10 seconds, plus 3 minutes to import my old blogger posts. Okay, time to update Angela’s site with the new tools.
