Are you? And if so, what are your plans today?

I'm going to knock a few more bricks down off my chimney after I've had brekkie.

Got the short straw and am working today.. Atleast down in Christchurch its an ok day to be stuck in an office haha..

The better leave situation is coming up in April - Take 3 Days Annual Leave between Easter and ANZAC Day and get a total of 10 Days off ;)

I'm doing the same at Easter / ANZAC, after noticing how nicely they tie in for 2014.

I'm at work but it's very quiet here today. The first Friday of the month isn't too bad here because we get to ignore customer requests for a day* and work on whatever we like, so it's as close to a "fun day" as you can get while still actually working.

*Obviously not urgent ones, but I don't expect any today since so many people have taken the day off.

School age kids = at work, no school age kids = 4 day weekend.  I'm in the first group.

I'm at work, less than half full in the office though.

I'm just applying for the Easter 3-days extra though.

Nah, I am working for Intergen now, and Geekzone is mostly my second job these days.

But to answer your question, Geekzone has a small home office. And a server in Auckland. That's all.
