Catching Up at Work

In the last few weeks our life has fallen into a pattern: Mondays to Wednesdays we work at WonkaTech, commuting down the valley to the offices south of McCarran Airport. Then, on Thursdays and Fridays we work from home, ostensibly working for our Other Client on future versions of their product, StigmaBase.

Now that we have been granted VPN access to the network (VPN = Virtual Private Networking, i.e. remote access to the internal LAN) we actually end up doing additional work and support on WonkaTech projects, and our working week spills into the weekend as it always has.

But that's ok. Working from home two days a week is definitely more comfortable than commuting 5 days a week, so we'll take it.

We don't know how long the (non)contract with WonkaTech will last, but lately they've been good about our flexible hours, and at this point we're reasonably sure that after our two-week absence in August (it's the wedding, silly) they will in fact want us back.
