My first corner office. Whoopee. Very modern, very slick. Nice Avaya VOIP phone with bluetooth. Actually excited to be in RTP for the first time in a while. Now, for some reason I am stranded a few floors from my team (who have yet to move in) and am surrounded by the Procurement Department.
The thing has me most excited? I can, for the first time, actually send pop3 mail from my firstname.lastname@example.org account. In the old digs outgoing SMTP was blocked and I had to wait until the evening to reply to personal mail.
Of small things massive victories are made.
This office has great energy. The former, temporary home had a cold war feeling to it. Very IBMish with conference rooms that were numbered — B1243 — not named.

Neat! last time I was around Raleigh the building was advanced but far off completion and only saw it from a considerable distance. It looked promising and “Lenovish” (sheesh! we ARE building a personality).
In Argentina we moved to our “own” place (Lenovo was scattered around 4 IBM locations) about 6 months ago. Office has a different feel from the two previous IBM locations I worked at. And, yes, conference rooms are named… after Countries, so we have “China”, “Canada”, “Argentina” and so on.
Regarding being away from your team: you probably are a bad influence for them!
I need to find an excuse to travel North again now!
