It's Full of Pixels

We often put so much energy into the big picture, we forget the pixels. - Silvia Cartwright
Done with week one of four working full time at my new office while MrsChaos is on the road. What a change it has been to go from the crazy insantiy of my old job to the restful life of the new job. I'm sure I'm still in the week one honeymoon system, but at the same time it will be different. There is no offshore office. None. I've spent the last 10 years with an office somewhere in India and now I wake up in the morning and there is silence.
Which isn't to say that people are working. I spent most of the nights my first week going over notes and translating them into strategies and plans. I saw bugs getting closed. I saw builds getting generated. But e-mail? Silence. The glorious silence of it all.
On another bonus, my job also got me a MacBook Pro with Retina display (and 16GB of ram). That means I know have the MacBook Pro with Retina, the new iPad (iPad3) and the iPhone 4s. There are so many pixels available I can smell them - saturating me.
