Today was an extremely busy day. Over the course of the last week we've been busy
trying to put our office together, and as of yesterday we finally had things under
control. Then today, at 10:40, a truck pulled up at our building to deliver our
new desks. The actual shipment was foo-barred, we only received 39 of the 42 boxes
we were expecting, but we received all the important bits. Matt and I were most excited
about the anthrocarts and starting assembling them as soon as we were done carrying the
boxes upstairs. Later, dirt and then aidan joined in the fun. Dirt was by far the most handy
and finished his desk well before the other three of us. Eventually, 2 hours later, we had four
desks finished and rolling (castors! yay!), but we still had 6 left to assemble, and a huge
party in the office only 4 hours away.
We took a clue from the motor city and set up an assembly line. Dirt laid out the
6 desks and their bits and we each worked down the row performing one task on a desk
before moving on to the next. We also did some optimization to make sure that the
two electric drills were in constant use. After we conquered the desks dirt and I tested
out the claims of sturdiness made by anthro. They held us quite firmly, very impressive.
After arranging the desks and moving personal stuff out from the soon-to-be conference room to the
new rolly desk, we had to prepare for the party. Matt's station wagon performed hauling
duties, picking up beverages and the catering. Jenn decorated basically made sure everything
was running smoothly and before I knew what was going on a boat-load of people showed up
in the new Arbor Networks offices.
The little ones at the gathering liked the eye-patches as much as we did and it wasn't long before
we had them all yelling "YAR!" as they ran to and fro.
