There's a place for people who laugh at nothing...

Managed, at long last, to get the book put together, and I notice that it's missing a whole bunch of stuff. So, I call the guy who put the thing together, and he said, "Whoops! I never finished that part!" So, he's working on that while I wait. I mean, I could have put it together. Y'know, it was the boss's idea to have someone else put my materials together as a way of "helping" me....

Guess I should work on some of the other crap that I have to do by Monday.

EDIT: Apparently he tried to email it to me, and it was too big for my mailbox. Hmmmm.....

FURTHER EDIT: Discovered why it's too big for my mailbox. It's almost as large as what he sent me before. Understand, I was supposed to receive 630 or so pages from him. I was down to 545. Then, this 400-or-so page behemoth arrives, and there ain't a whole lot that I can cut. I'm sorely tempted to have all of it printed and just tell them to work through it on their own. Of course, I have to proof it, too. Guess I should get off my ass and do that.

Something to keep you from getting bored on Sunday afternoon. Is this a training manuel?

Why, yes it is. I'm teaching a week-and-a-half long product certification class for my client company, who sells a spare parts inventory planning system that works in conjunction with other ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software systems. I'll be training internal people on it this coming week, including two additional training contractors who were just hired to help with some of the workload. Of course, the class is too big as it stands: even having gone from five days to seven, it's like squeezing 20 lbs. into a 5 lb. bag.

I'm supposed to be certified in this product before I teach it, meaning that I have to spend most of my free time today taking a competency exam on it. I'm doing all right on it, but it's all coming at me at once and it's driving me a little crazy. And, not getting part of the manual until yesterday didn't help my general attitude....
