I made it out of bed this morning (at about 80%) but other obstacles have presented themselves.
Upon reaching the office and opening my laptop so that I could backup the work I did yesterday the hard drive continually clicked and a flashing folder icon appeared on the screen. I was devastated because I thought that the drive had kicked the bucket. Fortunately I was able to perform some voodoo to get the laptop to reboot. I am in the process of making multiple backups in case the drive fails before I can buy a new one. Ironically, this morning I was contemplating wiping the hard drive and starting with a fresh install next week…
I am also trying to get the $1600 I “lent” the company last Friday in order to get a new iMac for an employee that started last Monday. Sometimes i feel as if i am working for a startup again, except this is a startup with billions in assets… Unfortunately for me the expense reimbursement system changed last year so I am now trying to figure out how I can access the system so that I can get reimbursed.
And now you know why the blog is both late and short this morning.
