First day

A pretty good first day at the new job… Small company, about 10 people. From the looks of it, no inter-departmental rivalry, no office politics, no stupid and unchangeable company policies. All very friendly people. Everybody goes home at 5:30 – they lock the place up. Got a desk, a chair, PC and software the first day, was actually productive and coding. It’s in Brighton – Bay Street – quite nice, a few good lunch spots, a few cheap scummy ones too, local bank and PO, all conveniences. Good contract rate, interesting work. Commute is a 10 minute drive or 25 minute tram/train ride.

What, you may be wondering, is the bad side?

Two words: No e-mail.

I may need to start practising my powers of persuasion by doing some Internet Evangelism on the boss!
