First day of work finished. Most of my time was spent studying the computer programs I'll be working with and developing for, while trying to ignore the whine of the laptop I was given. It sounded like a giant diseased fly. I was also told by my boss that I was overdressed.

Count yourself lucky. I got reamed today for being under-dressed, for wearing T-shirts and jeans on days I knew I was going to be crawling on my back under desks re-wiring CAT5.

I think I am not going to stick around BigSoullessCo. after all.

that sounds like my laptop :>

I usually play music to block out the noise, but I'm not sure if you are allowed to, at work?

good luck anyway :)

I'm not sure what the music-listening policy here is, yet, but I'm going to wait before I start. Today I managed to go without the fan starting to whine, but I also spent most of the day reading the not-so-fine manual.

Did you have the top-hat?

Amazingly enough, no I didn't. Nor did I wear my three-corner hat, sombrero or a Burger King crown (although I don't think I have any more of those left anyway). But I did wear a button-up shirt (short sleaved), pants and shoes, while the others were wearing t-shirts, jeans/shorts and sandals.

Find out if they need any NT admins.

No, seriously.
