  • 4 days off! Then 3 on, 2 off, 5 on, then 10 off. My Julys are weird the past few years with PTO.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

            • The street behind my building had a water main break this afternoon. No water. It looks bad. I’m thinking I won’t get water back till tomorrow.

                    • Scarlet,
                      Tuesday, is the bad day, isn't it?

                      I decided that I should convert my HP printer from being hard-wired to my desktop computer via a USB cable to using WIFI from my router. That way I can. at least in theory, also print from my new laptop computer when it arrives in a week. I googled looking for how to do that and eventually found instructions from HP. So I tried doing what it said and it kept saying I must first connect the printer to my computer. But it was connected. I eventually figured out that also meant the printer had to be turned on. So I did that and followed the instructions. After it was completed it told me to disconnect the printer from the USB cable. Well, there are two cables to the printer: the power cord and the USB able. Of course i disconnected the wrong one. I didn't realize that I did that, but when pulling the tangled cable from the mass of cables under my desk, it eventually got to the surge protector. At that point I knew I disconnected the wrong cable. So I reconnected the power cord and disconnected the correct cable. I heard a funny beep and didn't do anything, just continued tracing the USB cable which I eventually removed completely. At that point I realized that the funny beep was my landline phone saying there was no landline to it. I looked at it, and there were two wires. This time i correctly figured out which was the power cord and which was the data cable. I traced it and it was not connected to anything. I eventually realized that what happened was that when earlier pulling on the printer power cord, I had somehow removed the phone line from my surge protector. (The surge protector has phone in and out, and I had long ago decided that it couldn't hurt to run the phone through there.) Anyway, i reconnected everything and it all seems to work.

                      Why did I decide I needed a new laptop computer? I only use it normally when traveling which I didn't do since the fall of 2019. At the end of the month I am going to NYC. I decided over the weekend to test it. Besides for the battery being completely discharged there are many network sites, including USCHO, which apparently don't support Vista anymore. (As I said I don't use the laptop often.) So, I decided to get a new one, and vowed that i would use it more often.

                          • Yes Ralph, Tuesdays suck. Though with the holiday on Monday, that has seeped into today. Not even 9:00am and I'm already dealing with annoyances. Last summer we produced a ton of return to office signage and printed it because we thought we were going back in the office last September. That didn't happen. The project got transferred to me this spring. I've been on calls with certain people to determine if the copy is still valid given how things have changed. One guy was on these calls. It was determined two things needed to be reprinted but the Internal Comms people who are taking the lead on messaging agreed that everything else could remain as is.

                            So, yesterday I send and email out to our top 15 locations letting them know signage will be/already is delivered, what each piece is for, where it should go, etc. This one guy emails me today and copies all of the others and says some group (I don't know who - there are way too many cooks in the kitchen here) thinks the wording one on sign isn't valid any more. I wanted to reply and say "Remember you were on the call with all of us and determined which signs would change and which ones wouldn't?" Anyway, all I said was that the messaging was reviewed by Internal Comms and it was determined that the sign in question was fine as is. And naturally, the two people in Internal Comms who made that call are both on vacation this week. Because, of course they are.

                            • Work is interesting now.
                              No longer 9-5:30ish. It's 8:30-5:30ish, but our order cutoff for ground is 4pm, freight (semi-trucks) is still 5:15. Basically, I sit around from 4-5:15 waiting for the driver to pick up our freight trailer. Whatever. Free money. This decision makes sense on the surface (we are saving some costs) but overall...WTeff.
