Truthfully, my life this week has been about as quiet as the blog has. Most of my thoughts this week have been consumed by two areas, life in the office and the ongoing frustration of the accident.
I continued playing with the Struts framework in the office as a way of enforcing the Model-View-Controller (MVC) design pattern on our future software development. We also experienced so-so staff meeting where we discussed budgets and the IT organization’s strategy. Concerns around these two topics have led to a noticeable drop in staff morale, and despite attempts from management to communicate on these issues, I would say they’re failing. Their problem, more than anything else, is that by speaking in “buzzword jargon”, the message is lost to interpretation, which only results in further confusion. And so far as I can tell there’s plenty of confusion out there.
I stoppped by the body shop this morning to take a look at the car and get a status update. The good news is that the shop expects to be working on the car by the end of the next week. The bad news is simply how awful it looks. I’ll admit it, I’m spoiled by the many features my car has. I can’t wait to get it back.
