Last day at the DOE

Today was my last day of my contract at Alberta's Department of Energy (DOE).

The following are memorable things about the Dept of Energy that I may or may not miss. This is not a top ten list as I'm sure I will add to it.

  • Crazy Paper Guy - I hope he finds that airplane soon

  • Elevator Rides - praying for a non stop trip past the 5th floor (AB Mental Health outpatient clinic)

  • No more TEARS - Time Entry And Reporting System

  • Open Source vs Micro$oft "discussions"

  • Drive by management

  • Dodging smokers at each entrance to the building(s)

  • Dodging cars to get across 108st to/from our clients' building

  • Harassing Becker : "are you done yet ?"

  • Obscure batch program email messages

  • Figuring out how to open the bathroom door after the guy who never washes his hands has just left.

  • The Russian Coffee Syndicate

  • Last day rounds
