Well, today was my last day at Carcosa Corp...as a contractor. Come Monday I fill out a bunch of online paperwork, pick my insurances is, provide a lot of details, and I'll be a real employee.
What does this mean, besides I'm back oncall for the first time in about
15 months. In a very adhoc manner, which will take some getting used to.
I'm used to being on call one week, and off the next. Instead it's if you
have plans let the others know, and whoever gets to the problem first
handles it. I'd be more concerned, but I'm not the only hermit on staff.
As for working non-core hours/weekends, I've been doing that to a degree
anyway, this just makes it less of a 'keep up with hours' nickel and
dime bit than it's been, which is fine by me. I rather be salary and just
get stuff done. So lessening some of the more annoying bits of the job.
I have a new snazzy laptop, I've been trying to get the automatic VPN
part to work, but it seems to have issues. I'll talk to our desktop IT
guys on Monday about it.
So yeah, end of one chapter, begining of another. Even if it's mostly the
same. See everyone Monday when I'm an offical Senior Shoggoth Wrangler
for Carcosa Corportation. May the King in Yellow be gentle with your
