I remember Christhmus from when I was a lad! The important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

Well, last evenin I was very fed up with my fancy iPhone 8, that I got from my job. I alway liked the smaller form factor of iphone5 more. "I dont really need an ipad in my pocket". So... I find this small hole in the wall shop with a gentleman of distinctly oriental looking gentleman. ("we all know what orientals are like, eh?") Hello, gimme an iphone 5S please. Sure here you are. That'l be 150. Ok thanks, bye. Walking back from the shop, may five six blocks away I discover that "bloody hell, he gave me a 5SE " run back, despite having closed he is still on the premises. "Oi! You gave me a 5SE, not 5S!" "Oh, but the SE is much better" "No it isnt!" "Yes it is" "No give me a 5S" "Thank you for bringing it back" "Yeye whatevva! You have a 5S?" "Yes sure, here you are" "Thanks" "And thank you for bringing it back" "Yeye". Back home I check. The 5SE was indeed a better phone. Same form factor but better CPU etc.

Going from one person per less than a square meter with about 16 people crammed in a tiny room to one person per about two to three square meters with twelve in a bigger room.
In the previous workplace less than half the people didn't have a decent monitor, half the monitors were a crappy 1280x1024 and half the people didn't even have a monitor at all. It was mostly just working on a laptop.
At the new place everyone gets the same good monitor with additional mouse and keyboard and a docking station for easy setup.
I actually got some work done at work today
Pretty cool, feels like I can work from home a lot less now...
Nah, I'll still work from home as much as possible
But man, don't underestimate the value of a good workplace.
I wouldn't be surprised if the company lost tens of thousands in lost productivity in the crappy old workplace.
The new place is pretty much what I was used to before this (and I've still had a lot better), but right now it feels like workplace heaven, I guess all the complaining helped
not enough room for everything I want to have on it
I like to have as few on my desk as possible.
Laptop, one or two big monitors, keyboard and mouse, and preferably a little extra space for a notebook which I use occasionally.
And at the end of the day it all goes in my bag and back home (except the monitor(s), keyboard and mouse)
I would like three or four monitors plus the notebook. I now have two monitors plus the notebook and there is no room for anything else. I will be getting another computer fairly soon so it will a challenge to figure out what to do.
