Well today was the first day of the new contractor I hired. I can't believe it but there's actually someone on my team now that is geekier than me and I'm not really that geeky. My team is a bunch of geekless people. It's kind of nice actually. I think he will do a great job on this project. The other people I interviewed were just not very SMRT.
I think we broke some kind of record yesterday for the quickest new hire setup. We were able to get a few things already set up for him before he started so that helped. He has pretty much everything he needs now to get started. Only ran into one problem in that IT didn't give admin rights when the re-imaged the laptop so he can't install a few programs that he needs but hopefully that will be resolved tomorrow. Should be able to start some training tomorrow. I don't think much training will be required so that's a good thing. I'm just so stoked I was able to get someone who I think will actually do a good job.
