A Day in the Life of the DG in an ESRI Shop

When I get off the metro, I’m normally pretty chipper, I either have a book on tape, or a SMODcast blasting in my ear and I’m ready to face the fucking day.

Unless its raining

Regardless, I normally come in in a good mood.  Then after about 2 hours of ArcMAP things change a tad. I start to get a little daft, crashes, stupid 8 click processes, general slowness.

I normally take a quick break for lunch, and the asian food in our cafe is on the good side

Once lunch is over, in about 6 minutes I’m back to this

ArcSDE crap, ARcGIS Server being slow, going down, not working right, dealing with shapefiles and biting my tongue in front of ESRI Reps, by the time 1600 rolls around I’m all like

And this continues until I get home, and start jacking around with Q, or making R do stupid Geo Tricks. Suddenly, its like I’m in a field with a breeze, ready to face another day.
