ETA = now + NaN [Jul. 28th, 2009|12:05 am]
I was at work until 8pm this evening, and I've been doing stuff this evening as well. (I had to bring my keyboard home to fix it, since I couldn't find a Phillips screwdriver at work -- not that I looked very hard, mind you.) And I had to punt completely on this project timeline estimate and ask for a discussion about it instead, because I can't figure out how to combine "3 to 8 working days" and "completely unknown, plus 1 week" into any kind of total that would show up on a calendar.

So this week has been looking a bit doomtastical.

But if all my looming tasks turn out to be as technically infeasible as the one I just bounced back to the lead, it may go flying by in no time...

"3 to 8 working days" and "completely unknown, plus 1 week"

I feel i may have spent too many years in software support and interfacing with developpers. The above-quoted bit parses for me as "Somewhere between next month and three months down the pike, depending on what ancient evils i stumble across as i work, updates to follow as appropriate, now go away and let me work, deadlines be damned."

And thank you for reminding me that I need to bring a Phillips screwdriver to work today. And some Simple Green, sponges and a razor blade. My new office needs some love.

I hope your week goes well, bear. What's with the crazy schedule?

Thanks. It's just a bunch of things randomly converging, as they do...

So you couldn't lay hands on some vodka and Milk of Magnesia either?!?
