Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Well, Ol’ Robbo inaugurates his new, o-fficial, twice-weekly teleworking scheme today.

I’ve avoided signing up for it for many years, primarily because getting a remote connection into our system used to be a colossal and unreliable pain, and also because the original house rules were both draconian and nit-picky.  But both of those things have changed in recent years, and now having moved to a new building with a longer commute, I finally persuaded myself to get on board.

So here we are.  Ol’ Robbo sees that his kawfee is about ready and his “check-in” time is coming up in just a bit, so I’ll just toddle off down to my study to get ready for the workday.

I may, or may not, be wearing pants.

UPDATE:  A successful experiment, I think.  The system access worked fine, nobody bugged me but Decanter Dog and the kittehs, it was pleasant enough out to eat lunch and then spend the afternoon working on the porch, and I got a lot done.  And afterward, instead of the long slog home, I got in a good workout.

The only pro-tip I’d pass along is that if, like me, you aren’t used to using your work laptop, you should make sure to check it out for a built-in camera and attend to same with a square of duct tape before you start, er, indulging whims best kept private.
