Today was my first day back at work. I started a new full-time position in Administrative Systems at Clayton State University. It was a pretty good first day. I got plenty of warm "welcome back"s from everyone around OITS. It's nice going to work where people already know you. It alleviates the first day awkwardness. It's also nice knowing how things work so you can get all of the necessary stuff done quickly (parking permit, staff id, etc.).

Mr. Simpson and I spent a majority of the day wrestling with the ICVerify software in the External Relations office. A combination of poor documentation and backwards incompatibility proved to be our downfall. The rest of the day was spent installing Windows, and its multitude of updates, on my desktop.

Overall, quite a good first day.


That is awesome James. I'm glad things worked out for you and you're doing well man.

Good that you had a positive first day experience despite the headaches of shitty software. Stick with it - it gets easier and easier. I think that you have already found your niche - so much the better.

congratulations, James. I have been very busy and hadn't checked in here...Brad told me you have a position at Clayton..does that preclude a visit to Michigan this year?
