After some time off work, I started my new job today. It was a pretty crazy day. They’ve had a month to figure out what they were going to dump on me, and they told me everything today. I think I forgot more than I remembered due to the volume of information I got today. But everyone there seems really nice and pretty smart too. The first thing they handed me was Sam’s Teach Yourself Windows 2000 Server in 24 Hours. I guess that means I’ll be the IT guy.
I learned something during my time off. Working from home takes discipline that I don’t yet have. I had a list of about 25 things that I wanted to get done and I completed about five of them. There was a lot of football on t.v. which is demotivator for me to do anything else. I don’t doubt that I could develop the skills necessary to work from home, but it wouldn’t be as easy as I assumed.
I look forward to learning some new things about circuit boards, data buses, and various other words that sound like a foreign language to me. I also look forward to opening Excel more than once per week so I can resume posting to this blog on a regular basis. Well, at least as regular as I was six months ago. Thanks to everyone for reading over the past year and here’s to a great 2006.
