Well, its day 3 of my new job here at McAfee. It's really amazing. I am so glad to be back in the user interface design biz. The team here is really passionate about their work and have the skill and experience to make it happen.
I still haven't got IM working but I found out the last name of the IT dude and sent him an e-mail. Hopefully I'll be able to get that set up soon. For now, my main job is becoming an anti-virus software expert. I have virtually no experience using any kind of anti-virus software whatsoever (being a Mac user) so its all kind of foreign to me. So far I am intrigued by the challenges that system administrators face when managing large networks.
It all seems kind of dry but its actually really invigorating. Designing for complex tasks that people do everyday is a great challenge.
