New desk

Today is the first day that I get to sit at my new desk at the office. Everyone else has been settled in since Friday, Internet-connection-strung over from the old office notwithstanding. Highlight of arriving? Finding a brand-new fly-lead, still in shrinkwrap, on my desk. Ooooh, nice.

So for the past hour I've: moved my desk 90 degrees to the right, located the convenient smoking balcony (exactly eleven steps from my desk), plugged in the laptop, started fetching five day's worth of mail, placed books and other PC-detritus around the desk, and reconfigured my network connections.
