GeneralThe last working day of the year Pin

Yesterday I volleyed a customer problem back into their court, which earned me an attaboy from my boss. That has been the highlight of my week.

Today is my last working day of the year. As can be expected, my motivation is almost nil. None of my to-do list items are small enough to be worth starting. I'm reduced to clean-up at this point.

I've put away all the lab stuff that had migrated to my cube. My cube stays pretty tidy, but it does collect stuff occasionally. Some of it is depressing - I'm the official librarian-of-departed-employee-stuff(*), and a couple piles are things from long-time friends that have been laid off or forced to retire.

     (*) one of my many roles as the DSJB, or Departmental Sh!t Job Boy

My old PC, which has been sitting on the side of my desk for the last six weeks powered off, is busily deleting files and uninstalling apps preparatory to it joining its brethren on the Island of Misfit Computers in my other lab. I would have yanked the hard drive and wiped it, but it would be nice to leave the thing bootable. Unfortunately the corporate IT yabbos don't have the recovery image set up properly, plus the drive is encrypted Roll eyes | :rolleyes: , so I have to do this the hard way. I do believe VS2015 takes longer to uninstall than it did to install.

I'm also lurking on CP a bit, and posting pointless nonsense like this message.
Software Zen: delete this;
