The interns decided to stay late, then worked through the night, and got the office completely back to full operational status by morning. We were treated to a completely refactored workspace with more room, a better layout, and a lot less clutter.
They also took the opportunity to put a few pieces of equipment they found during the clean-up into action. Apparently they found an unused Mirra drive which was reviewed a few years ago, but had never actually been added to our technology setup. This is now part of the automated office backup scheme.
The interns also moved a few drives around, filled up the portable terabyte array, and made a couple of other "tweaks" around the office which they claim we'll "see" eventually.
We have to say that the interns did a fantastic job rearranging the office. Somehow the intern's desk is now facing the window and all of editors desks ended up facing the walls. As the interns did all of the work, none of us could really argue. However, the next time we do this...who are we kidding, we are not going to do this again :-) [Permalink] - Office Reorg Day3
