in reply to Thing that would make going to work more agreeable

Definitely clueful management for me as I work for my wife's family.

The nice things are though:

  • I *do* get to use Perl, although nobody there understands what the hell I'm doing. It's usually enough for them to retrieve e-mail.
  • I do get "nap time" since I have my own office, an air matress, and a pillow.
  • having my own office means I can usually play whatever I want on the radio - usually BBC Radio 6 - and the volume usually indicates my mood - the louder the music the worse mood ;)

On the other hand, better compensation would be nice. Telecommuting too, but then I'd miss the daily chariot races to San Francisco. ;)

There is no emoticon for what I'm feeling now.

[marioroy]: Also \"%S\\\n\" oh my, not fun.
[Discipulus]: good night folks
[marioroy]: I will make a mp3info script that takes the -p "%S\n" args and test qx. I'm on the road, so will come back.
[marioroy]: All because File::Find is not fun for LA.
[marioroy]: good night Discipulus.
