Thanks. Dang man, so do I...
Woo! Go you!
Everyone seems nice so far.
New job has a lot of new stuff to learn, but it seems like a fairly natural fit so far. And tomorrow is donut day.
Learning experiences in IT can be fascinating, and we never really run out of things to master. I know I'm always picking-up new things during my work as a systems monitor. It sounds like you're enjoying your new job and settling in nicely.
Quick question though, could we expect any stories of escapades from you and/or your co-workers in the future?
WELL today being my second day, the first thing I did this morning was swap out a power supply on one of the computers in one of the labs. Yesterday was the tour and "hey, this is so-and-so, they do whatever. So-and-so, this is our new intern". Today was "go do computer surgery".
Also the IT guy I work with (referred to as "bossman" from here on) had to shut down and reboot the entire building's phone system, cutting off some presumably important calls, to fix some error where suddenly no one could connect to anything.
Oh, and there was a big sheet cake from Wegmans in one of the conference rooms to celebrate finishing phase one of some big project. Emails went out, folks walked the building making sure everyone got the memo, "hey guys, there's cake".
Bossman opened a box with a computer that had been shipped in from one of the other facilities and the sender had also included a bunch of IT meme they'd printed out (a picture of Gandalf that said "please wait while the wizard installs the software", followed example).
And the guys in the mechanical testing lab have a popcorn machine so there's free popcorn available at all times. This may be important later, I'm not sure yet.
I almost forgot, there was a drama in the lunch room yesterday about how the guys in the metals lab on the other side of the building stole all the plastic forks. So someone went and stole half of them back.
Meanwhile one of the machine testing guys was asking if anyone wanted caramel popcorn, which he'd made to cover the smoky smell from earlier when he was seasoning a frying pan on the lunchroom stove with coconut oil. The pan's handle was broken off and they're not exactly sure where it came from. Closest guess is that a customer sent it in to have the metal for that run tested/analyzed and it was leftover from that.
Someone just announced over PA "The eagle has landed". That's it. That's all they said.
Apparently that means the Friday morning donuts/bagels are here.
I am a tired, tired Draggy. I'm looking forward to doing absolutely nothing tomorrow.
The kitten caught a woodpecker today, and pulled out half of its tail and most of the flight feathers on one wing. It's sleeping in SweetPea's travel cage (used as a bird rescue cage now) in my room. Tomorrow we'll have to look up wildlife rehabbers who can take proper care of the little critter until it's feathers grow back and it can fly again.
