I may have mentioned once or twice that I work with nerds. This week and next week I’m working with pissed off nerds.
I’ve ripped them away from the delights of Dr Who by day and Skyrim by night, and have asked them to stop their nocturnal programming activities and resume business as normal – anybody would think that I’m the Emperor. But like the Rebel Leader, I’m protecting the weak against the mighty force of our client base. Although, to be fair, the client base appears to be sleeping. We’ve been in the control tower now for 100 minutes and the only call we’ve taken was when one of our own was running 20 minutes late.
It’s time for desperate measures, it may be time to talk to each other. At the moment, the only noise in the vicinity is fingers tetchily bashing keyboards – the allure of Christmas leftovers and chocolate biscuits is fading. The satsumas and pomegranates are rotting in the communal kitchen. If anyone even mentions Christmas there will be a lynching. Where’s a stargate when you need one? Beam me up Scotty, it’s going to be a long day.
