Motivation? What Motivation?

Four more days of this job. Four more boring mind-numbing tedious days of people bugging me about things that for far too long they should have been learning about themselves.

This morning was the ultimate, however. A cow-orker came to me, complaining that they couldn't get CVS to work on their Windows box. Even after looking at the batch file I provided on the network for setting up CVS. "Oh, but all the back slashes in there were forward slashes like on UNIX, so I changed them to the Windows backslash." ARRRRRRGH! "Well that file, as is, works perfectly. You're supposed to use forward slashes; that is what CVS expects." "Oh, well, I'll give it a shot and them come and get you."

Amazingly, they never did come and get me again. I assume it worked fine after they followed the damn directions... geesh.
