Hope the first step to disappointment :)

Well the trainee started, and well she certainly as beautiful as I remembered.

But that being said I found out her age and well a lot younger than I. So I wont burn any bridges but my hopes were dashed. Either way some nice eye candy, and she’s quite bubbly so that will certainly brighten up the place.

I find that I’m smitten, which means I loose appetite and can’t eat. This is an indicator for me that I like a person, that I can’t eat around them. I’m also acting like a little school boy which means I tend to act bad towards her to cover my attraction.

… fuck! Maybe I’ll grow up one day..

Well on the 15th of January 2007 a nice new computer trainee starts at work (1 year appointment).  This is a major thing as I’ve seen her and she’s quit nice and more so where I work most are a lot older than I.  With my limited social network it’s hard for me to meet new people, let alone a nice woman.  As I work quit close with the computer department this will be a nice opportunity 🙂

Now I just have to not fuck it up.  But from initial impressions it’s looking very promising.

Well today is my birthday, and I turn the big 30. Just another day, just another number … oh well.

Had morning tea and lunch at work, I don’t like the fuss. But truly don’t mind it either.

Proxy is still blocked at work, it does block some sites and content. Damn them, but oh well. I’m working on a method to by pass the proxy via a SSH tunnel. I’ve gotten it working on the old proxy, but I don’t want to have to use that one and have it work on the ‘new’ one. I enjoy a challenge.

Finally subscribed to EVE Online, so that’s my MMO of choice for the moment. It offers some fun and break in the boredom. Met a few friendly and helpful people on there so look forward to that.

My sister and niece came over to work and surprised me and that was pleasant. She at times a sole reason to continue.

Work, blocked?

Damn those … came into work this morning to find my ‘standard’ method of connecting to the internet blocked.  So had to revert the ‘new’ way which is a pain as it uses a Java aplett and they block more sites which I want to visit.

Will have to see if this is a glitch to they’ve finally changed it for good.  If that is the case then why still have Border Manager.  Hopefully the change will fuck something major up and they’ll have to open it up once again.

Here is hoping 🙂

New Copier & Migraine

Wednesday, May 10th, 2006

Well we’ve got a new printer/copier in our office and I’m quite pleased. Recently my office was renovated and now it’s much better as I no longer have my back to everyone that walked in ..

Anyway’s back to the printer, it’s a wiz back color copier. Which will be a great asset. Funny enough to my non-working activities. I print a lot of DVD covers and this will allow me to quickly and cheaply print them. Also the quality for digital prints will be great. Full colored booklets and images …. heaven.

Had a migraine this morning at work. Not sure if it was due to the very rich chocolates or the cold weather we’ve been having. In recent years they have gotten better, but in the last months I’ve made an effort to not allow them to interfer with my working days. I now keep a surply of headache tablets which seem to work, strongest I can get without a doctors subscription. I might use this blog as a migraine journal as well. Will go and create a new catagory to store under I think.

I also found that I can access the userplane chat rooms that they use for TRHH/TBR … that might be dangerous knowledge to have at work 🙂

Busy day ..

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

Well a busy day at work, fully days like this are a rarity. I’d prefer these types of days where the time just goes, nothing like keepin’ the mind active and busy.

It funny though with the many days where the time isn’t always that full I get annoyed when I have to work. Sometimes I have the wrong mindset to do the job. But work smarter not harder I say.

Having the internet is a godsent, with most of the communications online and most of those I call friends on the other side of the world I’d never have time to see them. Daylight saving time really fuck’s things up as well, most of those in the US are fast asleep when I’m home.
