The new Reston office is not a bad space. I'm sharing an office with high-school-Jack and we have a window facing east overlooking a small grassy courtyard fertilized with copious goose poop. The Northrop Grumman building looms on the other side of the courtyard (about four stories higher), but our window is close enough to the corner to have a view of the sunrise over Reston (until it eclipses behind NGIT).

The offices are slightly smaller than Dulles and the corridors are like a rat's warren, but there's still not a cubicle in sight. As an added bonus, going to the restroom from my office is a straight shot, unlike the Yellow Brick Road spiral I had to traverse in the old building. The restroom is much more industrial feeling and has automatic sensors on everything. Flushing the toilet could suck a small child or a puppy out to sea in about 0.2 seconds, so you need to make sure your toilet paper has no hanging chad before you flush or tragedy could strike.

The network is still a little flaky -- I've been downloading a JDK for a project since I got in this morning and it's going at a healthy 1.3KB/sec. Only ten hours left...

Yesterday's notable search terms:
