Journal: Guess what ? things got brigher !

Journal by Alcoyotl

Well, well, well, it's been a long time and a bumpy road since I last put something in this journal. But I guess it's because I'm way happier in my professional life than I was last year... New company, new client, and I'll be travelling to England for an interesting project.

Heck, I don't know why I'm writing this here, guess it's some kind of work stress relief, because I'm sure that nobody out there (the /. crowd, that is) cares about the rants of an IT professional. We all have our bad days, buddies.

But maybe I'm getting more satisfaction from my job since it's been much more higher level than it was before. I'm not a true geek as I'd rather manage developpers than develop myself (although I do not have pointy hair, yet).

Journal: Deeper in computing hell

Journal by Alcoyotl
When you think things cannot get worse, well, guess what, they can! I'm now the not so proud writer of marketspeak documents covering technical details of future projects. Yep, I have to draw pretty diagrams and other idiot oriented nonsense, and believe me, it's very hard to write a full page, complete with diagrams, about how your application can send an email to users.

Brrr. One day left.

Journal: Crappy project

Journal by Alcoyotl

Oh god, the crappy project I've been working on the past 6 month is finally over for me. Wrong use of technology, stupid management, mostly headless chickens running around in all directions. The other contractor I was working with will be liberated on parole next month. He got the extra month as a punishment!

And now on to greener pastures. Yay.

It is masked but always present. I don't know who built to it. It came before the first kernel.
