Theme of the workweek: don't say 'what else can go wrong?' or life will take that as an invitation...

     I am so glad we made it through today without missing turnaround on any fiche conversion work. After last Thursday's dreadful fiasco...and then having nearly triple the usual work volumes come in, I was afraid we were doomed to have more black marks on our record. I can't believe we actually managed to pull it off...

     Grateful that I was able to get the Jan-Nov preliminary year-end reports done by the deadline, and with enough time to spare so that I could cover for Corey when he was elsewhere and do a bunch of fiche converting, at least when my boss wasn't calling me every 5 minutes or the witch-fiend server giving me 30-50 errors every 30 minutes.

     Grateful for Shelley too! She's determined to pay me back for all of her work that I did, and has helped by taking some little stuff off my plate I didn't have time for. And did a processing run today I could never have managed on top of everything else.

     On the non-work front, I'm now a little less obsolete! Reason being, paid to upgrade my DSL from 256k (0.256 Mbps) to 1.5 Mbps. So now I'm just 5-10 years behind the curve rather than 15, heh heh! But that's the fastest DSL my far from rich or cutting edge neighborhood can provide. Nice to be not so slow!

Glad to hear that you are making some progress at work. Just one more day to go!
So glad to hear you upgrade your DSL speed.

Half now, since I'm going back in on Saturday. ;P

It is nice to be not quite so slow!
