    Well I shipped up to my new job this morning. Spending the whole day setting up the PC, installing all the software, etc.

    Everyone seems nice enough (Although my desk is currently with the recruiters, rather than with the IT bods).

    Today I am now officially a Software Developer. Off to change my job title here.:biggrin

    Well, just finished day 5.

    Spent two and a half days just installing all the software, etc. Then I spent a bit of time getting acquainted with the particular application im developing.

    Today and yesterday I finally got to get stuck into coding for the app. Its quite good, I quite like being able to just sit down and focus on coding to the exclusion of all else.

    Now, an important question - is the caffeine up to scratch?
