I haven't been "in the mood" to contribute to Archipelago in recent weeks. This is no reflection on Archipelago or other members; it's a description of my sorry mental state. At the moment, work has me *really* keyed up.
This is perhaps not the proper forum to go into the situation in detail. Briefly, I work for a very good computer vendor - but to work for ANY compter vendor right now means to be involved in an incredible amount of turmoil.
Recently, I was assigned to a new position within my company. For me, it's close to a dream job. So what's the problem? I'm in the wrong geographical location at the wrong time.
I've only been in this new position for a couple of weeks, I've yet to meet with my new manager, and it's far too early to really understand precisely what's to be expected of me. Still, the data are pouring in on a daily basis, and they mostly suggest that this year I will either leave Salt Lake or leave Digital - or both.
And THAT'S what is distracting me from really participating in Archipelago this issue.
