So back in the office, they've got us in for 60% so three out of the five days. It feels weird not least because we currently have to wear masks all the time which is not working that well with my glasses basically looking at everything through a fog. It is nice to have multiple monitors again.
They also changed all the door locks when we were out so none of our badges work and they didn't bother to tell anyone so there were a lot of confused people prodding doors that refused to open.
I'm of two minds about it I would have prefered they allow us to work from home at least till the mask issue was not a problem it's a comfort and practicality issue. Given the nature of the work full remote work is always going to be tricky as someone has to come and poke things with sticks or kick power switches or swap out one thing for another or some such when hardware inevitably fails but still over the last year and a bit we've proven it can be mostly remote with a few people able to sort out the issues so I would have liked it if they maintained that flexibility.
Well time to get some coffee I don't have to pay for.
