Mom’s home from the hospital (4 days for severe side effects from chemo). She’s feeling good so now we have to pack in as much fun as possible before they start her up again with a new chemo cocktail, but looks like all rain for the next 5 days.
The BossMan stopped by my office this afternoon to check on the status of my project. 20 minutes later I was copied on an email he sent requesting that maintenance do something about the temperature in my office. Guess my office really is hot af.
I think it must be at least 80 degrees in my office. I can't even think straight. I am soooo missing remote work. Even my front porch is cooler than this brick oven. Just one more hour of this long afternoon to go.
First rule of IT: Do NOT change the name of things! We just spent most of 3 days fixing all the crap that happens when management decides that a folder name should be more descriptive.
Just got a directive from management to identify all instances in our systems where users input gender, and provide high-level tech specs for cost/time assessments to add a nonbinary gender option.
The DBAs are constantly changing policies, procedures and permissions without telling me, and then treating me like I'm an idiot when I try to do something the old way. In the past month I have been talked down to twice for it. I am fairly certain they all think I'm stupid.

My mom gave me a hard time that I didn't get more done around the house while working remotely for the past year. Uhh...because i was WORKING.
Dang, my office is HOT! Not sure if I'm melting, suffocating, or just going to doze off from the heat.
Nothing like compressing all of 2020's home repairs and maintenance into 6 weeks. As of yesterday I am finally no longer living in an obstacle course of tools, building materials, and temporarily relocated furniture and major appliances. Taking a break before starting 2021's.
Please explain why the other adults living in my house know precisely where every one of their books/cds/games/albums are, but are unable to help unload the dishwasher or put groceries away because, after 20 years, they still “don’t know where things go.”
Just finished making the 13th edition of my hand-to-hand combat magnum opus gender-neutral. I was surprised at how much it opened up the text—it went from “hyper-manly” to “universal”.
How's about come into the office, lock yourself into your office, limit all contact with others to phone and zoom, and log into a server located in another city to do your work; rather than work remotely from home by logging into a server located in another city.https://twitter.com/TypicalTahdig/status/1400562500505063425 …
