An unbelievably smooth transition from office to virtual for my company. The most difficult part has been teaching the olds how to use zoom/teams. They are used to having those meeting setup for them, but one by one I have got them operating on their own.
My company is slowly crawling away from an antiquated (the more you are in the office the better employee you are) culture. I’m looking to use this opportunity to push us several leaps forward all at once via technology. I’m already far more productive without people stopping in my doorway to tell me about their mother in laws 10 year old macbook.
In addition to the collaboration tools, we rolled out a ticketing system and my help desk analyst is just blasting through tickets.
In anticipation of staying home, last week I ordered a bunch of lumber for various projects, and full brake refresh kit for the Forester. I have a clip mount for my go pro and bought one of those magnetic bleeder bottles w a built in check valve so that my phone can be my second man for the brake bleed. If work is slow maybe I do a video!?
I also treated myself to one of these. My younger self would have laughed at this thinking “$45 for what I can do with a block of wood and a clamp...”
Current self: “That’s a nifty tool, I bet I know how that works! I should buy it to be sure.”
I’ve slightly modified the workshop to accommodate office things. It’s not bad! I can sit or stand, and move around with my “desk”.
I hope everyone is doing well. Wash those hands MFers!
