Looks like yesterday's impressions were accurate: the first thing I'm going to have to do is to take an inventory of the equipment I have on-site, figure out what's new and what's got to be returned, and then make that happen. Which is a good thing, because while I do have email and network credentials, I haven't got any admin access or other things. There's going to be training on-site around all the other stuff. And they're going to give me a work phone to go with the work computer.
Moving uo in the world!
I'm too tired and jangled to really do much of a pre-blog surf, but I'll have a quick gander at some of the highlights and see what they have to say.

So, anti-nuclear activists say that nuclear power is slower and pricier than renewable sources. Oh. Well, then, that wraps it up for nukes, I suppose. I mean, if they--HEY WAIT A MINUTE!
I would expect anti-nuclear boneheads to make that claim. After all, they're half the reason nuclear power costs as much, and is as slow, as it is: they keep getting in the damned way. If they would stop doing that, maybe nuclear power would be able to achieve its full potential, and maybe we could realize the grand dream of electricity that's "too cheap to meter". And if that happened, we could all go to electric cars and electric heat and electric everything.
"Carbon-free" would be a lot easier to manage if we were allowed to use nuclear power. If we can't, it's nothing but a pipe dream.

Yeah, that's about all that I have the energy for right now. Maybe I'll do more later. At worst, I will be posting on Saturday.
