Any of you using Jaiku?

I just read that Google has aquired them (presumably for use with their upcoming Gphones)and I was wondering if any of you had any experience with the system.

Funny Guy

The (sorta) new boss just told a joke that clearly included me. This is a first. He tends to be a little on the quiet side (at least when I'm around) and so he's probably been the one on the team who has most been making me feel like an outsider.

The joke? I said something like "How is that thing still burning?" (In reference to the warehouse next door.) His response was "Well if you would stop throwing lit matches on the thing!"

Hoaky, I know, but it was nice to feel 'included'.

Rediculous

The building next door is STILL on fire. Okay, maybe it's just smouldering, but close enough. Fire fighters are still here dousing the place. Amazing.

Rediculous

This is really ridiculous. I'm bored to tears here. At least if I had my access account I could check my email to keep myself entertained. As it stands now, I more or less sit here and listen to everyone else's keyboard click. I messaged Corey already, because we don't really know where he is. I checked with Rich to see if there was something he wanted me to be doing, and his response was for me to 'try to get in touch wth Corey'.

I just want to 1.be useful 2.be learning 3.BE DOING SOMETHING. This doesn't seem like a lot to ask for.

Yup.

Sure enough. I finished gathering data from the fourth floor of the other building for Corey and came back to find him working at his desk. As best I can tell, he's got nothing for me to do. Since Rich has off today, he's not likely to feel any pressure to have me do anything. Worst thing about this scenerio is that they don't even have a seat for me to sit in while I wait for them to figure out what to do with me. :l

It's looking like another one of those mornings. It's almost 20 minutes past 9 and no sign of Corey or Rich. I guess I'm going to head back over to the other building and finish getting asset info.

Today was the first day since I started working at Barclay that I was working straight through the day. It helps that I finally have the access card I need to get around. It was nice to feel like I was actually doing something for a change - even if it was just recording serial numbers and asset tags. :)

Finally feels like they're getting me to do something like work around here.

Corey gave me a thumb drive with Ghost and an image. I have the key to access the closet with all the new pcs, and I have a couple different 'moves' to do (new pc installs). I'll be setting up the new pcs, ghosting the drives, running initial set-ups, and recording asset info.

Something vaguely like computer work after 2 days of nothing.

Also - Rich Harrington filled out the form to get me an id this morning. I don't have it yet, but soon I'll be able to walk around like I'm actually supposed to be here!

While Corey's in a team meeting, I'm taking the cart from one building to get monitors from the other building to bring back to the storage closet of the first building. Got that?

First part of my day was spent finding a printer. Which was three cubicles away from where it should be.

Spent the first half of the day doing a lot of walking around "to gather stuff" to image a pc with Corey.

This process seemed almost painful to me since I'm in 'go mode' trying to impress people.

Found out today that the Barclay Bank gig is finally going to happen. Tom came over to the office and told me that I'll be heading over there tomorrow morning. I'm a little nervous about the idea, but Paul said that he might be joining me. I don't know if that's going to happen or not, but I actually hope not. I want some experience that none of the other guys have.
