    Yeah, kind of like those pictures one would see of travel luggage with all those "destination labels".

    Well - I don't know if the camera has arrived or not. But what was supposed to be a quick job has turned into an "interesting" one, so I'm still stuck out here!

    I'll get home in a day or two (I hope).

    Isn't that what always happens to quick jobs. Accoring to DHL tracking the camera has left customs right after you left for your job.

    I hate when that happens. I have been walking around work for months thinking... If you are not allowed to do the job right, at least make it interesting.

    My wishes have come true. Damn, damn, damn...

    The problem with this kind of job is that we don't even know what "right" is until afterwards!

    So far, all three models of reservoir development have been rejected. All available data has been reevaluated, reinterpreted and re-rethought - and some has been re-collected too. And we still don't know where to go...

    But at least there have been more surprises on this well section than most geologists see in a decade, so I'm learning a lot - and there's enough oil down there to make it worth it.

    Interesting projects always allow you to learn a lot. But.. when the CEO puts you on a team to find a software control company and a hardware company to be the basis of your company saving "next big project"... then tells you you can't choose 'X' software company, or 'Y' hardware company, even if it's the best choice...

    life, and your project, get interesting. We are living those choices now with a March 15th turnover date of the system to the process group. That is 14 days away and I haven't put a wafer in the chamber yet under process control.

    See y'all about the third week of March. Maybe unemployed. *L*

    tim,

    For your sake I hope you're kidding about the unemployment.

    For our sake - well it would give you more free time for the "One Camera" project!

    Just kidding.

    Things are a bit "hairy" in my shop right now too. Talk is of merger or perhaps reducing scope, of US biz etc. Or maybe even exiting US market altogether.

    Our bank is state-owned and not supposed to lose Euros - and now we've taken a big "hit" in the US subprime mortgage area.

    Oh well.....life goes on.

    Regards,
    George

    Well, the camera had arrived. And so have I. And today it wasn't raining for a change, so I ran outside and snapped my picture!

    Camera (will be) on the way to Birger A, tomorrow with any luck.

    Yeah, I hope you had not to pay any duty for it.
