TV drama for the day:
Set in the London offices of the fictional corporation Reynholm industries,the show revolves around the three staff members of its IT department,comprising their boss,the geeky technician and a genius named Maurice Moss….(sorry no intern in the drama)
Well my IT department is no different…there are 3 staff members plus me(the intern).How are my days like you may wonder?well..
My mornings are typical,its past 6:30am and am headed to the bus stop(i conveniently left out the part about how I woke up,dragged myself to the shower…you know) jamming to some music from my phone.7:45am am at work.For some weird reason i always find my boss in the office,I have noted that I usually leave him at work am some how find him there,talk about resilience….I am yet to ascertain he doesn’t teleport himself to work…so i boot up my machine and my day officially begins.
Now anyone with basic computer skills will agree with me that a computer with no administrative privileges is like a glorified calculator,well am not logged in as an administrator. What this means is no custom settings,no Facebook,no Twitter and yes no Blogging.All i have for pass time is email forwarding.
Now don’t get it twisted and think am not ecstatic,quite the contrary,in place of regular internet i have a whole file-server to myself,next to that is the mail server and a server room. My workstation is equally impressive..why u may ask?Visual Studio 2010 babie,and not the cracked version i have on my PC,the real thing…..that’s like a programmers wet dream.
Just as i get settled!
“ring! ring! ring!”
“IT Support how may i help you”, yes people the phone knows just how to ruin a perfect moment ,coding today will have to be delayed.
A couple of loose connections and several restarts later and am back!
Dim section,aggregate As Integer
Time to get back to the art of the code……….all in an interns day!
