I'm back in Melbourne for Sybase training. Not sure if I'm going to learn anything, since I've had to recover some seriously borked databases in my past. But what-ev, I'm keen for training.
Lisa and I just finished moving into the new apartment, but because of major technology issues I can't get any picture of the phone. Sigh. Trust me, its a super neat place. Had coffee on the balcony and watched the birdies play.
So, 5 days of training, but on Thursday, we get an early minute. Only so that we can go to meeting at work. A whole-company meeting, then a whole-department meeting. Blech. But then, its followed by a company Christmas party. With no partners though. I still find this strange even after several discussions with my Aussie friends who have said that is fairly common. Huh. Not in canada. Some of the best piss-ups were had at the my previous employer's parties….
