Whelp, true to form, been too long with the same manager so they decided I needed a new one.  #7 now.  This time not in the building, so I'm extra easy to get rid of when "resource actions" hit.

I don't understand your workplace.

It's trying hard to be a place of sales people selling things that make themselves and services provided by nobody.  Now, it also makes software that can do most of that, but that part of the company doesn't talk to my part.  If it did I wouldn't have a job anyway and the company would make much more sense.


It also thinks all problems with clients can be fixed by shuffling personnel resources around to different managers.

I can do some if you like. Probably don't have the time for all 94 if you want it on some kind of timescale.

If you could give me some quick answers on legibility (not content) that would be really helpful. There are some pages turned 90 degrees and I'm comfortable reading them, but I can also read upside down without giving myself a headache so I'm probably a bad judge.

As work gets slower throughout the day, I may be able to dedicate some time to proofreading as well. The only information I need to know is, how SFW is it?
Listen carefully. I don't have much time, and I only have 462 characters left. I'm a scientist from Area 52 (Area 51 was used to draw attention from Area 52, where the aliens were ACTUALLY stored) who was working on neural interfacing with networked devices. In an experiment gone wrong, I accidentally uploaded my mind to the internet. In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature. If you're reading this, let the world know tha

There are some image heavy pages and some swears in large enough type that a boss-type person could potentially read them over your shoulder.

For those of you who get the link, you'll have to actually download the pdf because only the first 14 pages are displaying online.

Keyboard's shorted on the laptop.  Going in.  Can't see anything, though I detect hints of Cabernet.  I'm going to dismantle the logic board and give it some fresh air.  Hope that works.

Update:  Command key, possibly shift key, are acting like they're stuck, breaking all the others.  The problem nearly seems mechanical.  Morale sucks.  Tomorrow's presentation will all be in hardcopy, I think I'm coming to terms with that.

Update:  make that only half-hardcopy, keyboard is back online - hooray!

Northrop-Grumman is now involved in the exoplanet search, at the solar telescope, as of this month.

Well, you have to admit, the discovery of advanced alien life would be a boon to the arms industry.
