Working life

How long will it take?

Great news! We got cables to go with our network connection points! Amazing stuff. With any luck, in the next few months the bits and pieces of the PC might turn up.

Okay, I admit it, it’s starting to get just a little frustrating. This is the end of the fifth week at this new job. The first couple of weeks, I could stand – we were getting to grips with the task ahead, working out exactly what we’d be doing… But five weeks – c’mon! Someone should get the message soon – we’re computer people… here’s a hint… we need computers to work!

There is a particular person who has the responsibility of getting our computers for us. We’re now seriously considering stealing his.

But in the mean time, I’m still spending a fair bit of time at home, getting paid to mess around with the technology we’re intending to use for the system we’re going to build. I can’t actually go ahead and build any of it, so who knows, this web site might get a few little Java applets out of it!
