Work + Heat

May 14, 2008 5:51 pm

With the start of the week, came the start of work.  I started on Monday with an orientation for new employees and interns.  This was informative, however it was more or less all redundant because it’s stuff I had been forced to figure out on my own during my time here in January.  Later in the afternoon I got to head over to “meet” my manager and get settled in.  Getting settled in involved unpacking my “desk in a box” (shown here out of its box):

Since then I’ve been busy getting myself all setup again with the resources I need to be plugged into to work well and starting to wack away at little jobs.  A quick bug fix and extension to our project from Jan-March has been completed and now they have me moving on to other new interesting things, which is nifty. 

In other news here, it’s HOT!!!  It pushed up close to 90F today.  I really didn’t notice it as I’m inside air-conditioning all day, but standing out at the train station waiting for the train was enough to make me sweaty (in the shade even!)!  Tomorrow the forecast says we may get up to 99F!   Thankfully, I’m in AC all day, and it gets cool quite quickly in the evening as the air isn’t very humid. 

On that note, I’m going to go get a glass of cold water!

Wraping Up

Things are spiraling to an end out here.  We have been hard at work writing our paper, with things more or less done.  It’s just down to the last fixes now.  We have to give a 10 minute presentation to our Professor and the people in charge of the projects at NVIDIA, eBay, and SRI tomorrow.   By this time tomorrow things should be completely done!

Thursday and Friday’s focus is going to be on packing with an early morning airplane to catch on Saturday. 

 I finally remembered to bring my camera with me to an InterVarsity meeting and got some pictures of the smallgroup that I’ve been hanging out with on Tuesday’s.  There are more on facebook if you’re interested!
