Planning a modular help system for our new proprietary client/server
Documentation for SQL databases and PowerBuilder 5.0 (yes, 5.0) code for
our existing system so new developers will know what these processes do
without going through the code.
Planning a presentation on "Effective Power Point," because we have some
people here who simply parrot what's on the slide. (Hey-it's better
than Ambien! And the amnesiac effects last only 30-45 minutes. More if
they hand you a printout at the beginning of the presentation.)
Wrangling Word and Visio to do my bidding, which is quite Sisyphean.
(Wow! I haven't used that word since the Master's program at La Tech!)
Awaiting the arrival of my Paint Shop Pro upgrade.
Downloading a .pdf from the Information Mapping website, looking at it,
realizing I learned that in high school, came up with my own method, and
saved the company thousands in consulting fees. (Theoretically
speaking-I may put the bug in the CIO's ear, and step in at the last
minute-kind of a budgetary Deus ex Machina.)
Trying not to get blamed for anything.

bother coming in on Monday."
