I need to make a new category for Boeing.
Much different environment that at MS, way to many people for everyone to have their own office. Actually my cubical is rather large, but the chair sucks (cannot scoot in with it, who thins that making arms on chairs so high that the chair cannot be scooted in is a good idea?) and I need to requisition a new mouse.
Boeing recently switched over to giving employees limited accounts rather than admin privileges, spyware and government secrets do not mix well.
Some things are very organized here, amazingly so. Other things are kind of weird. Like trash cans. There was no trash can at my desk, the office manager kindly was able to get me one, someone had ordered some and forgotten to pick them up.
Whiteboards are a scarce resource. People keep stealing them, so now they are also special order. Ick.
Boeing recently upgraded to Dell D600 laptops, kind of weird. Where did they GET D600s from? The D600 is an incredibly common (and rather good) model of laptop, in fact Microsoft has 20 or 30 of them just laying in a pile in the lab I frequented, but umm, heh, the D600 is kind of old. 2+ years old. Mind you CPU speed increases have been somewhat minimalistic in that time frame (Hey look, lets shove more cores on the die, alright!), and a 1.6Ghz Pentium M is nothing to sneeze at, the Pentium M (or D, depending on when you talk to Intel 😉 is a darn good processor.
I am just wondering where they got the stock from!
