It's actually been nice and relaxing, just pages and pages of numbers to look through and put somewhere else.
permalink Huzzah!
I had today's meeting cancelled, so am at a bit of a loss.

I am just catching up on emails and feeling angry about the 5Dynamics thing I had to do, which assesses my entire personality based on a few dozen clicks in a test.
permalink now I'm trying to get to the bottom of some budgets and project scopes​
this is less pleasant and relaxing.

bought one of those infra-red digital thermometers so we're all seeing how hot various things are around the office.

I especially like how they work from FAR AWAY!

permalink Isn't that what Tesla sell now?
permalink What, a battery for one of these?
permalink As the quote says:
nothing would indeed have got you cooler.
permalink Why are they asking questions?
permalink I don't know
because the only response they're going to get is "I'm sorry I can't help you with that, it's an exam"

I had another asking me what a certain word meant, as they hadn't come across it before. The question was literally asking them to define it.

We also have sticky foldover strips on the answer sheets so that we can't see the names while we're marking. It's amazing watching a room of soon-to-be-engineers struggling with peeling off a bit of plastic and folding a flap.
permalink aaaaaaaaaaaargh
