I was visiting a new company that had only two employees working in a giant, new building. There were lots of boxes with new equipment. They were preparing for all of the people to arrive. One of the two was quite young. He was in charge of getting all of the PCs ready. They were setting up a training area as well. I asked him if he wanted to talk at all. I could tell that this was the first time he had done anything like this, and he was reluctant. I said that I didn't mean to imply he didn't know what he was doing, but one person sharing knowledge with another made more than two.
I was then in the president's office at a different company, or perhaps at the same company after many years. There was a particular application that I was quite interested in. It had a symbol that looked like this:
It was on a chart with the chief security officer's rights to administer applications. On the left side the symbol was listed along most of the rows on the far left indicating slightly different modules of the package. There were six or so people in the office, all young. The CSO was resigning. At first I thought that they were figuring out how to hire him back, because he was the only one who knew how to run the application, but it turned out that they were trying to figure out how to run the company without him. Many other people, including the president had recently quit, and the six people were all that were left. One of them said the CSO was quite old [he was the same CSO as the one where I work... same name and face]. I said he wasn't that old, that he was roughly the same age as me. One of the people looked him up on a printout, and with an astonished look said that he was four years younger than I. I said, "Well, I wear better t-shirts". A woman said, "Yes you do. Especially your blue one."
I then saw a service announcement that showed how difficult it was to live in an RV. It had a picture of the inside with cushions shoved in front of the dash and all made into a giant bed.
I then was at home, and I had accidentally dumped my salad into the sink. Some of it was resting on dishes on the left side, and the rest was heaped up on the right side. It was night time, and I ate it quickly, hoping that Sean wouldn't see me, because I felt kind of grubby, and she wouldn't like how unsanitary it was.
I had this journal entry up on my screen. I was going through them last night to fix small bugs from the numerous migrations I've had in the last ten years.
