Last Friday they informed us that our office was being moved across the hall this week. We have been trying to sublet our office forever, and the new tennents need to be in before the first of the month. This is making for an entertaining week (in a masochistic sort of way).
The space we are moving into has minimal power, no network drops, no cubes, etc. The movers showed up today to take some of the stuff over – like the soda machine, refridgerator, snack machine, water, etc. They told us that we can expect to work off of card table for the next several weeks — sounds like one of those programmer sweat shops that you here about in India.
We completely tore down the lab, which contains all of the machines we use for daily testing of our product. I think they ran a network cable through the ceiling to keep us connected after the move. The same is probably true for the phone system as well.
Did I mention, we are suppose to ship our product this week (at least release to manufacturing). The other products that we make at our office are also due to be released within the next couple of weeks.
PS – Sorry if the Sponge Bob skin offends anyone

- James, I am really offended by your Squarebob Spongepants skin. Even though it was originally my idea. And I’d like to get a copy of it.
Maybe I’ll send a donation to those protest groups. We’ll get you and your ilk removed from the internet and return it to its original pristine state — just sports scores, jokes, and porno.
