So, this week has sucked for me at work.
Once the network issues were resolved and I had the data restored to the databases (which, by the way, I only BELIEVE I’ve done correctly and may yet find missing stuff), I had the Conference Room Pilot for our now order management system to deal with. We’re gradually – can you say like six or eight years gradually? – rolling out a new platform which is point-and-click, to replace our mainframe software. It’s a long-term goal, and I’m to be involved in making sure the data we get for our databases and web pages is available in the new system. Is it compatible, providing the same stuff in the same places and fields, etc.
The rest of the people on my team who are involved with the new system are entering orders and testing the software. Kicking the tires. But me? Nope. I’m crawling through downloads, trying not to bother my boss about what’s happening, what’s this, where’s that come from, how do I check this or that? It’s not … well, it’s just not fun. I’ll leave it at that.
Tomorrow is the last day. I was hoping to have a lot more accomplished, but the person I’m working with isn’t as savvy as he might lead us to believe. Still, he’s better than me, because in his position I’d have sunk a long time ago.
Maybe next week I’ll have more interesting things to say. For now, I’m just hanging by my fingertips for the weekend. If I can get there, maybe I’ll get myself together and reorganized and then try it all again next week. And the week after. And the week after that. *Sigh*
I plan to write. What are you planning?
