So I woke up this morning, and Secret Project Z was on the front page of Slashdot. Tuesday is sure going to be interesting at work!

(I don't actually code on it or anything, I just occasionally help digitize forms for our testbed clinics and provide some initial front-line support for them.)

So last week was Week One of my time here at Secret Project Z. It was... well, let me explain.

I apparently picked a very good time to start, as last week was Staff Appreciation Week. As previously mentioned, the very first thing I did on Monday was have breakfast. On Tuesday, there were massages. On Wednesday, there was lunch and random door prizes (I got a bottle of wine -- Jackson-Triggs, actually, which a) neat but b) I don't really *like* wine). On Thursday, there was coffee and donuts (Timmy's, naturally), and everyone got these really nice fleece pullovers. And on Friday, there was a wine and cheese tasting.

Sooooo. Yeah. I have to keep reminding myself that all this won't be happening every week.

Other than that, it's been kind of hurry up and wait. There are 4 main offices here (and people we support outside of there), and lots of people at all of them that I have to meet. My boss seems to be pretty constantly running all over the place, and I've only really gotten to see him for half an hour a day, so there's a lot of stuff I haven't gotten to go over (like, half the stuff I'm supposed to be supporting). So I get enormous infodumps and then I'm left to my own devices at my desk for the rest of the day.

Everyone has been really nice and friendly though. It's been neat. So far it seems like I've really lucked out. We'll see how that holds up!
