The new office is sweet

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 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.

  1. 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!
