In the Wake of the Day
So, after I went and splatted you all with my Day and all the associated giphy madness therein, I figured I ought to at least do you the courtesy of giving you an update.
I have received a genuwhine patch build of the misbehaving software, one that has not yet been made available to the
shee… erm… general public. Said patch works. Precisely why this flaw was not uncovered prior to release is something I would prefer not to expound upon, simply because I don’t think the profanity filter is capable of handling that kind of outpouring.
The workplace is still not what it should be, although thank all things deific a working air conditioner was finally installed today. That should put an end to having portable units with their vents wired up to the ceiling scattered around the place, as well as the extra noise, and the discomfort that goes with being in the little corner where said portable wheel-around air conditioners do not reach.
The noise level has dropped as proper dampeners have been put in. It’s still not good but it’s bearable. As my absence from the comments would suggest, I don’t really have much energy left over after the work day. Used to be I could manage an hour or two of extra whatever if I had to (that’s before I become dangerous to myself because my coordination is shot – oh, narcolepsy, how I love thee… Not), now it’s down to about a quarter hour margin.
What I think of the building management is… unprintable. There’s some kind of alarm going off in the equipment room 3 days in 5, on average. When my employers signed the lease, building management had several months to check on all the equipment, make sure all the bracing and dampening was in place, and that it all bloody worked. Instead they wait for us to bitch about it. It should not take the a/c unit freezing over and dripping into our cube farm to get the damn thing checked out and fixed or replaced.
So color me extremely unimpressed, and change the subject so I don’t start ranting.
