First Day
I gotta get to sleep, so no long detailed report (or long detailed anything), but I want to make a quick report.

I survived my first day at the new job OK.  Mostly spent on getting the machine working and on personnel stuff, but I did get some hours in of trying to get the hang of the software I'm going to be working on.  It's big, and I don't understand the subject (the technical terms are over my head, and the chemical theory is beyond my freshman chem).  But I was making fair headway on understanding the development environment and getting the software to build.  They're making me and the woman who also just started the guinea pigs for moving to VC8, so we don't get to just copy the source onto our machines and have it build.  But at least our machines are fairly cool (for a PC anyway) -- dual montors at 1280x1024 is a fair bit of screen real estate.  Tomorrow I have to go through a Benefits Orientation (which is probably a waste of a morning).  And I have to make it through the next couple of days without Rick who was my mentor today.

Got in touch with the insurance company, and they were initially helpful; we'll see if they get back to me tomorrow like they said.

The web site is www.exoticfelinerescuecenter.org. EFRC is located near Center Point, IN (a tiny town, but it should show up on a state map). The largest noticeable town is Brazil.

Take your best route to US 41 south through Indiana. Follow Indiana 63 (the 4 lane highway) when it splits off 41 through Terre Haute to I-70. Follow I-70 2 exits east to Indiana 59. Take 59 south about 4 miles, to Ashboro, and turn left at the church on Ashboro Rd. Follow Ashboro Rd. about 3 miles until you see EFRC on the left, and park on the left side of the road (the side with the gate). They open at 10 AM Eastern time every day except Monday, and tours can start up to 4 PM in the summer. Let me know when you're planning to be there. If it's a normal Sunday, or if I can fit it in on another day, I can be your guide if you want. (I can give you a longer, more in-depth tour than the regular people probably will. But you might not want that much. :-)
