It’s been a crazy week, work-wise, among other things. François, one of the IT managers, finally retired after 40 years of service to Inco. Good on him, it’s well-deserved. The guy worked really hard and made sure that things were done right. Wil took over his job and now that things have calmed down, I finally decided to take my rightful place at the back of my office. I moved my desk to Wil’s old desk, and swapped the roles of my desktop and laptop. Now my desktop is my domain PC and my laptop is a non-managed Vista laptop. Schweet!
My car broke down two days ago. I was on my way back to work from lunch when my head unit just suddenly kicked out with no power. I thought that maybe the damn thing died on me and that I’d have to get it replaced, but at the end of the day, I was on my way out of Inco when my head unit died again. Not too long after, my car died and I had enough forward momentum to pull over. I noticed before I pulled over that the battery LED was lit on the dashboard. I had a feeling that my battery wasn’t getting charged. Dad and I went back later that night to give the car a quick charge to drive it home, but we only made it to the highway intersection before it lost all its juice again. We had to call CAA to get it towed the rest of the way home.
I hate my car.
So, I’m off tomorrow morning to Winnipeg for a Windows Server 2003 course. My flight leaves mid-morning and arrives by lunch time. I arranged to have this weekend spent in the city before the course starts from Monday to Friday, and then I’ll have all of Saturday left before I have to head back on the Sunday afternoon flight. One thing is for sure – it’s going to be like a vacation, only paid for by my department. Muahaha. I also shouldn’t have too much trouble finding Final Fantasy Tactics for PSP.
Holy crap, I still need to pack. O_o
