My customer is re-wiring their entire building in cat 6e or something. cat 5 was okay, but apparently someone got a wild hair some place that tickled. Monday the contractors were running around in their lifts: "beep beep beep". Not even noise cancelling headphones helped. Off to my home office.
Tuesday afternoon, the contractors were ceiling tile diving...
Wednesday morning - clean desk off of debris from ceiling. Interrupted numerous times by guys wanting to mess with wall network connectors. All to get ready for the big effort on Saturday.
3 guys disrupting 12 senior developers. Makes a lot of sense.

Developed at a cost of almost $1m in a joint project between the Zen temple and renowned robotics professor Hiroshi Ishiguro at Osaka University, the humanoid -- called Mindar -- teaches about compassion and of the dangers of desire, anger and ego.
"You cling to a sense of selfish ego," it warns worshippers. "Worldly desires are nothing other than a mind lost at sea."
It was along time ago, but we are still feeling it's affects. My Dad was in a similar situation (he told stories of being straffed by FW190's on the way to school!), on VJ Day he broke a Window trying to fly a flag (which got out hand)
Asia is a beautiful tropical paradise that has only 1 shortcoming: Asians.
too damn many of em, there's literally nowhere you can go where there aren't other people, 24/7... no empty country side, no empty mountains, no empty forests (what little remains), no such thing as an empty beach.
interestingly I watch a British series called Death in Paradise, set in a fictional Caribbean island, although Saint Marie doesn't exist it is filmed in Guadeloupe and nearby locations.
One thing stands out: a tropical countries that have done it right. Small populations, most of their islands un/low-developed, every day: get enough for the day and then enjoy life. (ok, some over simplification but mostly like that.)
Asians have burned and asphalted almost all of their jungles, built the ugliest crowded cities, and well to keep it short: every day is about money at any cost no matter how long it takes, and taking free time is seen as lost opportunity for more money.
I'm tired, I'm always tired. Everyday think about leaving, (100% no lies) and almost ready to get out, but just a little bit more have to do. (family, sigh).
