While in the middle of disassembling an old PCB powered amplifyer, I got the news that an offer I made on a house was accepted by the owner, who is selling it. I tried to get the empty unusable lot off to the side, but that was too involved right now. I can still have my CHICKENS in the smaller back Yard.
I worked at home, by direction, the last 4 days of the workweek. To day, Sun day, instead of working on the outside telephone lines, I did something of personal health importance: I cleaned my human interface devices (HIDs). A nasty photoe or 2 ahead, hence the NSFL note. Also may annoy people with trypophobia, but the holes are regular and clearly non organic.
SO! After well over the original time of 1 year (52 weeks per the form), I got permanency in my title. Essentially I have proved that I am worth keeping. This is similar in effect to “tenure”, but is more a protection from improper politiqual influence than protection of uneasy research ideas.
In a few months, I can start the process for obtaining my professional license, which – when done – entituls me to the next title in the ladder. This will restart the process of 52 weeks of uncertainty.
…if you have been wondering why I haven’t blogged anything at all recently. That is the primary reason. Another is getting a new job very shortly.
I am not abandoning blogging, but do have to slow down for now.
Your continued interest is appreciated.
Unlike the previous one, this one is confirmed.
As mentioned over a year ago, I work for a State government, doing governmental things.
Now, I am applying for a transfer to a new part of the (same) State government, to do different governmental things.
I will let you all know what success or failure I have.
Of all fruits that are edible by humans, I think I like the cherry the best. They are now available and ripe in my part of the world. I am happy.
