Well, the first day at Autodesk is in the books and it was a good one! I really liked the job environment, my co-workers and even the commute wasn’t all that bad, thanks to Glenn Beck’s “An Inconvenient Book” on my iPod. I think audio books on the iPod will be a life-safer.

I believe the round-trip yesterday was 164.9 miles or something. And the drive home was probably just about a worst-case-scenario with snow and a couple accidents. So hopefully it’ll be smoother sailing in the days ahead.

I spent yesterday setting up my new computer (brand new Lenovo ThinkPad T61p) and installing some software. Sat in on a couple calls with Irvin and went to a couple meetings. Today I’m going to start training on the Autodesk products and will probably be doing that for the next 3 or 4 days.

It’s exciting and good so far! Oh… and did I mention it’s all the free pop I can drink? Vending machines are set to not accept any money. All Pepsi and Coke products are available. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

If I’m slow to respond to emails and the like, I apologize. It’s going to take me a couple days to get settled in and see how much time I’ll have to address personal emails during the day, etc.
