Well, things were going terribly for the last month of 2010 - workplace horrors, then I was transferred to a different team and life is full and wonderful again. I like my boss (she was my manager a couple years ago); I like my team - heck, even the other teams on the floor are pleasant people. When I say floor, I mean I am floor 19 and was just transferred up from floor 17 - most of the people on 17 were unpleasant and non-responsive, whereas (so far, knock on wood) most of the people on 19 are really nice, pleasant people to work with. I am looking forward to the next 6 months on this team. So the new year has started well.

A little bit of a downer is the 'ball cutter' fish - it seems in the waters of Papua New Guinea there is a fish that bites off the balls of fishermen and/or swimmers. The thing is huge and, oddly enough, has very human looking teeth.

For me the start has been PERFECT! Every year i used to have one or more resolutions, after 10 days those resolution used to take a back seat.. this year i started with out one and since i didn't have to worry about them, so there is no guilt in my mind!

Wow! What a year, from worse to great! Excellent to hear, GrimJack :)
What sort of work do you do?

Are you saying your a victim of the 'ball cutter' or you know people that are?

What sort of work do you do?

I work for the IRS as a seasonal which means I usually work from January to June. This year (well actually Dec last year) I was called in early and went into the first team for the 4 weeks of the early call-up. January 3rd was the beginning of my actual ToD (tour of duty) and I went to the team that I was assigned to. If it seems convoluted to you, you don't know the half of it.

Are you saying your a victim of the 'ball cutter' or you know people that are?

No, fortunately I do not know of anyone who has met one - it is just a weird bit of news that I wanted to pass along so that, no matter how bad things get, a fish did not bite your balls off while you were swimming.

Erm just HEX (The number System) dumps of hard drive images, why would I be looking at DNA for computer forensics. Unless synthetic silicon DNA has made leaps in the past year?? :D

sounds more like an urban legend than anything else to me. No fish will have evolved to do that, no evolutionary pressure to do so :)
And of course it'd be rather hard to target people wearing swimwear :)
