It is hard to deny persistant electronic evidence.

Hmmm, now if Mark actually was the board moderator I could have found some way to remove the evidence of what you speak. It wouldn't make you forget anything, but there wouldn't be any hard evidence.

This is somewhat unfortunate. Not that I'm on probation, but the fact that I may be far away from my work pc for the next three weeks and I'm generally to damn lazy to turn on my computer at home during the week. Crap, Turkey day is in three weeks.

Hire? They seem to be volunteering, and that's unfortunate because you generally can't bribe a loyal, voluntary henchwoman.

Stupid Keenspot seems to refuse to believe I've logged in today. It keeps logging me out as soon as I go to post. It took something like three tries to get my first one to actually be me and not a guest.

I was foolish to trust it for the last post.

Given what you said above, I'm assuming I've got a better chance of getting an answer if I post this question here than by sending you an email. I am, however, assuming that others might want to know the answer, so emailing that might be good.

Anyway, the question: Whatever happened to that issue with you being moved to a different department or whatever? I remember a long rant about that a while ago, and you weighing the issues like pay raise, crappier job, dealing with end-users, etc. How did that turn out?

Hah! I think it's well established that I routinely make poor decisions and only learn from past mistakes if they result in my holding a grudge.

In response to Chad; it's gone where all things go in a large corporation. Where that is, I'm not entirely sure. Supposedly we're being reorganized and my big boss wants to hold off on making personnel decisions until he knows how much personnel he'll have left. Either way, it's something I'd prefer not to think about, because the more I think about work the more I realize I'm tired of my job.

The answer is as simple as what I mentioned earlier.

I have the distinct feeling the mockery would occur regardless of how I lived, so I choose not to change.
pzambert wrote:so, uh, you haven't switched? speak english!
But I am speaking English. It's the special value added dialect that only attempts to appease the end user without communicating any actual information. I recognize your concerns, and yes, even some of your frustration, but at the moment I am still deeply considering all the ramifications of further disclosure. I must consider each possible avenue of information dispersement, study the cost of a potential second party distributor over inhouse development and release, determine the effect on investors, and then develop the proper media. Only once all the studies have been concluded, results discussed, and a course of action chosen, can I prepare a standard operating procedure (what those in the know prefer to call a S. O. P.) for myself. Then, if the atmosphere is receptive, I will commence with my course of action (after a few trial runs, of course).

I could tell you who you sound like. But I think I'll just point, mock, and laugh.

I know who I sound like. After dealing with this crap for so long, I was curious if I could emulate it. Your mocking laughter has no effect on me in this matter.

Since all you ever do is mock him, I'm not surprised that he's become inured to it.

Testing is stalled for the time being, as Kevin needs to install the "emergency patch" in the testing room. Rumor has it we need to retest everything so that we can be sure they didn't break anything. Oh, and Export Notification is hosed, too.

I'm sure you just wanted to hear Nathan grumble about it some more, but I thought I'd post some real news. Heh.

Okay, as if George's incessant crunching weren't bad enough, now there's some sort of Zamfir-does-Celine-Dion's-Greatest-Hits thing playing. Sigh.

How glad am I that I skipped out on work yesterday? Whoo! I bet the PRLs are going to LOVE hearing that. Are the programmers working on this thing trained monkeys or something?
