Well, I have just been transferred to the Dark Side and have achieved enlightenment. I now see the Light Side for what it really is - a bunch of no-hope cowboys who should be sent to India sooner than you can say "Single from Bradford to Bangalore, please." Already I have been asked to bypass the change control system and monkey around in the live system. Considering the implications of dismissal for a nonosecond, I replied, "Raise an emergency change like everyone else!"
Mrs. M. is back from ginger-procreation leave. A welcome addition of sanity to the floor.
I popped up to the top floor to see how the Wippets were doing: they are a sea of blackness, with a tall, 6' blonde german lady as an island in the middle! Yes, Frau Blücher is back! I had a chat with her this morning, which was quite enlightening... Our implementation of CRAP is the worst she's ever seen, being an international CRAP AG consultant. And now we're offshoring our IT to Bradford (!), she thinks the lack of knowledge transfer will be catastrophic for future support - especially in the "change" "space."
Oh, and after a briefing with Twat Can't-Waistcoat, it seems that we're now in the same "space" and he's "supporting" "me" "every" "step" "of" "the" "way."
That's all for now.
