PHEW

Some code upgrades that got fouled up the past 2 times we tried them... they seem to be working now. Thank GOD. I really don't need any more heat about this. I want to update with more, but it will have to wait while I finish this. I think my mom might have found this site. Yikes. Hi mom.

Addendum: Fuck you engineering guy. I'll just do all the work myself, that's ok, no problem. I didn't have anything else to work on. But hey, at least 7/8ths of the way through my week. And if my supervisor can't keep track of what's going on and has to ask me all the time, how am I supposed to go to him when I have a problem?

Other Addendum: I realized what it is about this Dead Can Dance album that intrigues me; it sounds kind of like an Andreas Vollenweider album in some ways.

Wow.. as an Engineering guy I'm rather disapointed in the ones you have. You sure they are not really just tech guys that call themselves engineers?

*blink*... Hi mom!

hee - no - the tech guy that calls himself an engineer is me :)

That's a sentiment that's beginning to reassert itself as the industry begins to wind down and re-tool itself. The entire thing really started as companies wanted to entice people with the Engineer title and people clammored to it like so many lemmings. Given enough time, Real People with Real Engineering Degrees cried out Bullshit to HR enough times that NOC and Network people are becoming Techs and Specialists as opposed to pretend-Engineers.

Are you surprised to find that that progressive pro-real-engineer stance has not yet arrived where I work? I thought not. Round those parts engineer means "written CCIE", although I will say that we have some bona-fide on-paper engineers. Whether this dude was one or not, I dunno.

Props to people who make it through an engineering curriculum. I never even entertained the idea. :)

I will forever remember Monseiur Sheldrake's immortal words on the subject.

"Yestahday I couldn't spell Enginer and now I is one."

A rough paraphrase, but you get the point.

that's what i get for going to an engineering school and socializing with mainly engineers and dating a snooty engineer for four years...
