Hi. I'm Alive. I Think.

weather: clear
outside: 16°C
mood: apathetic
Work has just been really hairy. I've been assigned to four projects, all of which have some sort of deadline this Friday (ie. TOMORROW).

  • My Project™ is shipping. Read: Big Ass Full Regression.

  • The Other Project™ is also shipping and needed another person. With this one, there's some really tedious stuff to do. And it's just hard enough that it needs a human to look at it. Writing a script to do it is more trouble than it's worth. It's all being done by hand.

  • The Research Project™ had a lone Co-op student doing QA and the school term ends tomorrow, so we need that handed over. I have to at least evaluate where everything is and ask all my questions by tomorrow. It's an internal project, but we have a National Research Council grant for it, so we do have to deliver and show what we did.

  • This Other On-Going Project™ is going to be released as a demo and needs some scrubbing too. I'm probably going to end up doing something minimal for this.

Our overtime policy is just to take the time off later. I won't be able to take any time off next week because The Project That's Sorta On Fire™ will need me now that the Co-ops are gone. This one is insane. Some weeks it's pretty sedate, then some weeks it's completely ablaze.

I want my title officially changed to Senior Tall-Buildings-In-A-Single-Bound Leaper.

The personal stuff will have to go into a box with bubble wrap again.

Your personal life should get a silvery electrostatic bag, I think it's ESD-sensitive.

Seems to have always take charge. =)

I'm glad you're OK, and not wallowing in self-pity and being down-in-the-dumps.

I JUST wrote about (and to) you too... It's like... 'Speak of the devil!' and Elizabeth Hurley in Bedazzled shows up.

G'luck with the projects! Work is good. Work keeps the mind occupied and unable to angstitize. By the time work's done, if you're lucky, the futzy stuff will have worked itself out.

I'm glad to see you're alive. I've been really worried about you. *big hugs and glomps* Just think next week you'll be able to have your relaxing CD...

Work is always crazy. Just when you think you can relax, it comes back with avengance. I hope your projects end up going well in the end. *hugs hugs*
