Today [Jan. 23rd, 2002|12:08 pm]

The good news is that we found the spell to release the hermetically sealed windows and allow fresh air into the office.

The bad newsis that it is still just as cramped and that we have a visit and presentation from a member of the board to "motivate" us I think. I'll let you know how motivated I am afterwards. Come back Dilbert - all is forgiven.

Motivated? [Jan. 23rd, 2002|02:14 pm]
Peter Sheil
Well we are out of the meeting and are we all motivated? Hmmm well maybe.

We started off with a presentation previously given by the CEO about why we are like a football team *barf* and had some videos of teams including a player turning his back on an opponent after a foul and then getting a serious kicking from behind. What does this mean for us you ask? [we certainly did] Well I think we ae supposed to watch out for the oposition and not let them surprise us ... or maybe we should put the boot in first ... who knows.

There was a lot of one company, one team, one strategy, seeing the bigger picture stuff - all fine and dandy 'till someone asked if there was a plan for actualy achieving this yet. At least the presenter had the grace to admit "no" without too much waffle first.

I guess I'm at about the same motivational level as when I went into the meeting,just more hungry and looking out for changes in the company ... the spark of hope hasn't died yet :)

Computer Haiku [Jan. 23rd, 2002|05:06 pm]
Peter Sheil
I have found my list of 30 computing based haiku while trying to get enough room to work on my desk. I'll include the first few to give you a flavour of them.

Three things are certain
Death, taxes and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.

Everything is gone;
Your life's work has been destroyed.
Squeeze trigger (Yes/No)?

Windows NT crashed.
I am the Blue Screen of Death.
No one hears your screams.

I'll post more unless you all complain and beg me to stop :)))
