Why, people, why?

Some building 10 conference room names are being reassigned to different rooms, in the same building, the same floor.  I can understand the desire to refresh old or confusing names.  However, previously, for instance, the conference room named "Yen" has been in the south hall of floor 2.  Now, the name has been moved to a room in the north wing.  The name "Euro" moved up two floors.

For people who remember conference rooms by name, I expect this will be extremely disruptive for a time. Imagine someone running downstairs with their laptop & paperwork to catch an important meeting in "Dinar," only to realize that the room by that name is now on floor 4, where they just came from.

So much for the "if it ain't broke" rule hmm?

Another "new record" post

My last record-related post was clearly not at all enjoyable.  I'm not sure how to rank this one on the goodness/badness scale.  Today I moved the 500th email to my saved items folder... for just one project.  Just one!

Strangest work question ever

"Hey Bamidele, can you use mayo to shine plant leaves?"
