Meaningful employment!

Woo!

It took a bit of time, but I got there in the end! I’m back as one of the employed masses! I started at the University Campus Suffolk on the 7th of September as the Technician for the Computer Games Design course – which means I’m doing what I was doing at Lincoln but full time and with control of the labs and machines.

As such, life is currently pretty hectic – we’ve got building work going on where our labs should actaully be, so I’ve had to setup a temporary┬álab in another block so the students have somewhere to be taught, though it doesn’t have net access and it’s all very, very rough -we have 2 switches, well, 1 switch and a hub that are sat at opposite ends of the room with cables sprouting from them to provide us with a network while our projector sits on storage crates and projects onto a wall that contains a clock, coat hooks and the tops of a pair of taps.

Thankfully though, the end of the temporary setup is in sight (fingers and toes crossed) with our new labs hopefully being ready for us to get our gear into towards the end of next week, with students getting into them around the 12th.

Life is certainly interesting!
