Day Three

Well, today started off pretty badly – I had to finally admit defeat with the javascript and ask for help. Both Ed and Al tried, finally Al came up with the solution. And now, of course, the darn thing doesn’t work in Internet Explorer, so I have to figure out a CSS tweak to fix that.

Also, I’m very worried about one of the other people here on stage. They are constantly interrupting, and talking about things that have no relationship to the work at hand. I am concerned that i will be painted with the same brush, and I really do not want that to happen. I am not sure what to do. I talked to a good friend about it tonight and they said I should ask for a meeting with the bosses to explain my position and make it clear that I do not want to be associated with this person. But I think that may be too extreme a reaction. I will wait and see what happens.

At least I have solved the problem of the extremely long and boring commute. Not much I can do about the time factor, but I am counter-acting the boredom by downloading the tech podcasts I subscribe to, and listening to them during the drive.
