Always check with your boss

If you're waiting for an update on my big "Take Your Daughters to Work Day" Sun Ray eco/green project, don't bother.  Haven't seen them all day.  I didn't check with my "Work From Home" boss first and apparently even though I went through all the trouble to get the forms done, she had other plans for the "workers".  It's a scam I tell you, a SCAM!  :)

Are you taking your kids to work?

Tomorrow is Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.  But what if you work from home?  I'm allowing my girls to come to work with me (i.e. stay home), but I want them to get a better understanding of what I do for a living and why I believe in my product.  Our project for tomorrow will involve figuring out how much using a PC costs and why Sun Ray is a better option (even with the "server" and storage requirements).  I've got my Kill-A-Watt meter ready and we'll compute the savings a household that makes heavy use of sites like Webkinz, NickJr, and the like can get if they switch over to thin client technology.  Tune in tomorrow for our results.

That empty office feeling

Is exactly what I have when Twitter is down, like it is this morning.  Twitter has become the virtual water cooler or break room for millions of home based workers.  It's the way to talk to your colleague in the cube next to you, except there are 2000 miles in between cubes.  To me it's really the only truly social thing out there in social networking.
