Ramblings of a frustrated armchair Railway Modeller

Everyone is entitled to my opinion, so I've decided to enter the blog-o-sphere in order to share them with you.
My focus is the rationale and development of my model railway, but I am likely to wander off topic from time to time.

Cut off from civilization

Hey sports fans!

I'm the Shipping & Receiving Supervisor at a major urban Public Library and I get to spend my days two floors underground heaving books around.

In between deliveries I spend my time on the interweb.

I started my blog with a few fast ones to put some content on the interweb.

Now recently I haven't had as much computer time as I'm used to...

My computer is a flood victim because a fire sprinkler on the floor above froze and the water leaked through onto my desk.

This was at the end of January...

After inquiring as to the delay in replacing the drowned unit I received the following reply from 'Jerry' in IT.
Unfortunately we won't be able to replace this PC right away. We have 33 spare PCs and work orders requiring 57 replacement PCs. The failures are happening with the old black IBM Thinkcentre PCs and they seem to all be failing very quickly.

Yesterday I sent a plan to 'Bif' and 'Bob' [Not their real names] that outlines the sequence we will be using to replace all of the broken PCs. I haven't heard back as of yet but NYCL is not in the first phase of the replacement plan. I expect it may be three to four weeks before we can have more PCs in stock so that we can replace CLPCS633 and the 19 other failed PCs in NYCL.
The Shipping & Receiving Department computer is not a priority.

So my computer time is cut back to evenings and weekends.

On the plus side, I've been reading more.

[Imagine that?! Reading in a Library...]
