    I'm currently sorting through several years' worth of a client's bank statements and cancelled checks. We have to put the checks in numerical order before they can be scanned and put on a disk for the IRS. Lucky me!

    I'm setting up two new laptops for company use, deleting stock crappy programs, adding our own, that kind of thing. Whenever I'm done with that I have to install a new fax line in an office upstairs, check on one of the big plotters while I'm there, then go down to the shacks outside and check on a printer issue, a CDROM issue, and a network issue (all probably imagined by the people making the complaints... Just speaking from experience. :D)
  4. Nothing at all, not working today.

    No, getting ready to lay out a big hopper's plates to get plasma-cut. Sizing the door for it first.

    I'm learning about SQL.

    As for what I am doing today....creating some FTP sites, checking security and folder access on the existing FTP sites, writing some technical documents for new users of our proprietary apps, auditing clients access to data and our network. Good times indeed.
