This new job requires extensive travelling, like 6 weeks at a shot, with a week at home. I was flown to Tucson, Arizona for a week of safety training. The hotel in which we stayed, didn't have a lobby pc and I don't have one of my own. so I lost contact with the rest of the world, other than calling my wife.
The other effect that this job has is that there is no way I can take care of the plants. So I turned the care to the downstairs tenant and am hoping for the best.
I hope, one day, to work for this company locally, but that is just a thought for now.
This company will also provide laptops, so sometime down the road, I'll be able to chill out and play on TF. But for now, this is a necessary disruption in life.
