Yeah right

For some reason...

I feel more and more convinced that the other job is better... in many ways... less extra hours... less work piled up over me... less work tasks for me... more money... more spare time... more people to talk to...

but... however I turn and twist on this issue... I always find backsides on both jobs... one for my current is that it feels like I'm being overrun by our manufacturer, they are looking for people in Sweden to basically do what i already are doing...

one for the proposed job is that it would shrink my career opportunities... unless i start up something on the side...

... all this consumes my time.

A headache...

...yesterday made me zombie-like... when i came home, i went straight to bed after taking a pill... slept really good for the first time in months... woke up and felt somewhat fresh... and still i managed to arrive late at work...

Why am I not surprised?

I found this in the news from ComputerWorld...

    Study: IT Employees' Work Hours Rise 30%
     
    A new research report released by the Meta Group consulting firm claims that IT workers are spending more time on the job this year, due partly to the emergence of new technologies.

I'd like to have a less-than 40 hours work-week... currently it's about 60 hours... I guess that is just a wet dream...
Yeah right

*Sigh*

... feels like I'm gonna leave the office early today... Pinnen called and said he'd like to even out a pizza-debt ... I'm gonna work on his computer for a while... and we're gonna watch some movie too...

after lunch I did nothing useful... played around with a counter (script) for the company website... and optimized a bunch of other scripts...

I've been thinking about how to break the news to the boss... and I've been thinking about something like this...

"ehm... I've got a job offer... they pay me double... could you pass the salt?"

... or something... from loyalty to the company I'll try to break it gently to the boss...

Yeah right

Mission to Mars

... was ok... a bit spaced out at the end... but it's a sci-fi... so i guess it's supposed to be a bit twisted... or futuristic...

Pinnen's computer are now running Win NT... on 16Mb RAM... and takes about full five minutes to boot... :)

oh yeah... tomorrow it's Lucia (some sort of saint)... it's the 13th of December... ppl drinks spiced hot wine and have yellow buns made of saffran (spelled?) some sort of spice from a flower...
