    I wasn't through with the old one! Oh well, I do like our new software so I guess a new RBP is due too.

    I don't get it. You hire extra help for unloading/packaging and nothing is delivered. I work in a car parts warehouse that receives containers and lorries from different parts of the world. Those consignments take a while to get here meaning that you can plan accordingly.

    So why do they hire extra hands when no shipments are due to arrive? And those are the people telling you what to do, and evaluate afterwards. 8 hours of utter boredom.

    Last month we were in a meeting to address the overhead hours which are sky-rocketing.

    Is bad planning worse than no planning? It seems that at my work they seem to excel in making highly unrealistic plans. "First time right", they call it. Maybe they've been manager for so long that they forgot that in engineering nothing ever goes right the first time?

    Well, we got nearly everything postbit-wise sorted out today, thanks to @catbert , so the place should start feeling more comfortable and reminiscent of our old home. ;)

    I'm currently going through the user accounts of the more active members and fixing those first, with the rest to follow shortly after. If I've missed you or if you spot any issues with your account's avatar/title/ribbon display, ping me!

    Today I had the day off. Nothing to do at work. Friday 4 hours balancing a broom followed by 4 hours frantic order picking and shipping. If you would organize two picking runs instead of one, the people in the day part have more work, and the extra hired help can stay at home in the evening. Win Win. But no, company police is just one round.

    I finally got signed in. I'm waiting for a tech to bring up a new modem. My current one is failing most of the time. It's pretty old, clunks and makes a lot of noise so time to replace the dang thing. First the router now the modem, Dish is going to start disliking me soon! Back when the new one is installed today.

    Moving this post out of "The Donald" thread kind of ruins the joke. For those late to the party what Old One posted was in the wrong thread and made no sense as it was a thread about Donald Trump. Here in Random Babblings it kind of makes sense.

    Getting sidetracked on the 'net -- when you thought that you'd be finished doing one thing but then realize that you've been reading through a dozen unrelated pages and an hour or two have gone by. Whoosh!

    I get sidetracked several times a day. Especially if tvtropes is involved.

    Also, yay; I has a ribbon.

    That happens to me so often, especially when watching video's.
    one moment i'll be browsing for some music video or funny clip to watch, next thing i know it's a few hours later and i'm watching a How To video on training your hamster to knit tiny scarfs.

    And i don't even have a hamster. :p

    The real challenge is making sure they don't eat the scarf afterwards.
