Well, going well is a relative term. It'* better than driving around fixing it problems on copiers. However, The "Get to Know Us" time ended today with the thud of requests on my desk to go take a look at ongoing problems (some of them are reports that have not worked right for months.)
The new job is like being given the keys to a 20 year old pile of junk and being told to restore it to brand new...the accounting "system" at the new employer is a real mess. The hardware is all good stuff, the software is just a cobbled together pile of junk. Looks like the next year will be just trying to keep it running long while writing a new one from scratch.
All in all, I got paid for the first week already (nice check in hand) which makes everything a little brighter, especially when I just got my final check from the copier folks today. By the end of next week my software writing skills will be spun back up to speed. A month from now, these folks will think I walk on water.
