Interesting Times

I just got some news that could make things at work very interesting over the next few months. I am going to try and make the best of it though. Perhaps it’s just the kick in the pants I need to get my motivation and coding mojo back.

It drives me nuts

I am a software developer and also the backup administrator in our office. I often get people coming to ask me to do something related to a software project, or to ask me to perform some administrative task for them.

That’s no problem, but, why, oh why, do they have to stand behind me and watch? Do they think it will happen faster or I won’t do it right now unless they wait. I find this particularly annoying with administrative tasks, which can involve remotely logging in to some server that is as slow as molasses. If they’re not watching I can carry on with other tasks while I wait but if they are watching I just have to stare at the monitor and fume about the sluggish computer and watching cow-orker.
