Linux, musical road-dogging, and daily life by Paul W. Frields
I thought I told you never to call me here.

I thought I told you never to call me here.

Currently I’m working as a remote employee, until we get our real estate sorted out and move up to New England. It’s a very new experience for me, since I’ve always worked in an office ever since I graduated from college/university in 1991. Working as a remote employee, though, has its benefits:

  • I can basically start work right after a shower, dressing, and some coffee.
  • Lunch feels free, even if it really isn’t. At least it’s cheaper, and there are usually real plates and silverware. And sometimes cookies.
  • It was very rare that people ever came into my space at the office and hugged me unexpectedly. And it was probably better that way.
  • Two words: LAVA LAMP.

On the other hand, there are drawbacks, too:

  • When the walls rumble and shake, it’s no longer artillery, it’s a four-year-old.
  • Now I sit next to the laundry machines. In the basement. If they move me again, I’m going to burn down the building.
  • John McCain, this is the THIRD TIME you’ve called me today. Stop, already.
