The startup phase of a project is hairy. There are a million things to set up, documents started, operating systems installed, tools downloaded, bought and installed, environments synchronized. Then we switched Dev Leads. So, there's a bit of a heave-ho... but we're rolling now, so that's good.
As an aside, the first Dev Lead wasn't laid off. J resigned because he got a position with LucasArts. He was a great guy to work with. I'm sad to see him go, but I'm happy that he got the job that he did... in this day and age, that truly says something about your abilities.
Work is giving me a bigger harddrive and XP Pro on Monday. Thank you, Work! =D They were going to give me another machine (a bigger, faster, smarter PC). I already take up two work areas with My Mac Farm. They were about to make me into A Tanning Service. Yeah. Fat lotta sense that makes, people =}
I don't quite know if it was my laughing hysterically or my starting to make a cardboard sign with the price per 15 minutes of tanning time that made Work realize it would be better to just brainwash/re-educate my current PC and give me a bigger harddrive.
So, early next week, I'll be scrubbing XP up and down to make it not look like it was kicked in the head by a mule at birth.
