One of the “joys” of working in IT is how fast the technology changes. Due to this phenomenon, most IT office seem to get cluttered quickly. Mine is no exception. Add to that fact that I work for a city it only makes matters worse. We have to submit requests for bids from salvage companies and then have our city council approve a contract which whichever firm they decide on. The process can take months, if not longer.
When I left work last Friday, this is what the front “working” area of my office looked like;
This is about a 6-month accumulation of “junk” anything from dead monitors, printers, PC, cameras, mice, keyboards, battery backups, you name it.
Today we finally had a salvage company pick up most of the junk. There are still two more rooms in another building to pick up. Unfortunately, the guy ran out of room in his truck!
So here’s what the office looks like now;
Still some work to do, but much better. My main concern is how quick will we fill it up again?
