A (possible) move at work...

We are leaving the freezer!  So it seems at least... I guess the rumor has finally gotten to us that tomorrow we will be moved upstairs to another area... I don’t want to get my hopes up... but I really hope that I get a new monitor... like one of the ones everyone else in the building has... so I can view the game in wide screen mode... because it really seems to be a disadvantage for me to only see things in standard view mode. 

 

I don’t know if I’ll actually get it though... but at the least I hope I get a computer that is not doubling as the Redmond kiosk... which everyone uses for their hours.  So when it comes time to update time cards, everybody needs to use my computer.  And last but not least, I might be able to view more than one Xbox at a time.  That is kinda annoying when I need to use two boxes, and I have to deal with a 1 frame per second refresh rate for everything.

 

Anyway... I guess it will be interesting... we’ll have to be quiet... but it won’t be as cold... and we’ll have a door that goes directly outside... and not have to squeeze past the IT guys out in the hallway. 

 

Anyway... lovely stuff around the work place...

 

Although it kind of sucks to be a second class citizen... FTEs get everything (on-site parking, snacks, food, beer, pop) while we now only  get pop... (they took our snacks away.) 

 

Plus they really hold us to only taking breaks and lunch at our designated times... but not FTEs... they just do what they want...

 

Oh well... I want to be an FTE... that would just rock.  Anyway... enough complaining...

 

We are doing our usual testing... and wishing that certain things from Halo 1 and 2 were in the game... we miss our freedom.

 

Anyway... I’ve said too much.

 

Later,
