Personal Reviews

I’ve had one review that started the way this does.  At the time my motivation was actually as low as suggested.  What’s worse is that, by this point in the job, I was very low on morale and getting messed up psychologically.

I need to do more comics, I’m running out.

Also, to those people who have been coming here to look at my random scribbles, thank you.

Air Con

This is what it felt like when the air conditioning was on in my office (which was also home to the servers, LCs, GCs, router, hub and CCTV equipment).  The air con unit was right above my desk and pumping out air at 10 degrees C.  It felt far, far colder.

Fire Escape 2

This is more or less what the Lab Tech had to do (with my help) to get through the window.  Bearing in mind that he had to climb over a desk (and PC) to reach the window, and then over a 40 gallon drum full of chemicals to get out of the room.

Running through the lab involved opening the dividing door, travelling no more than 6 feet, past 2 fire extinguishers, and opening the door in to the warehouse.  Suffice to say, the window was pointless as an escape route.  Especially if the warehouse was on fire on that side.  Part 3 coming up eventually.


Had a lot of bother with printers.  The first one I got would print a page, and then reel out several pages containing only one line of symbols.  Until I punched it in frustration and it very, very gingerly pulled through a single untouched blank page.  This wasn’t a permanent fix, however, but it felt good at the time.  Please note: I don’t condone the use of violence against printers, but it’s a good, if messy way to take them apart for recycling.
