New employees are trained by that old favorite Drinking From the Firehose of Whatever is Happening at the Moment. I think I'm doing fairly well at it, although I'm far from error-free. Thankfully, forgiveness is available in plenty, and they really don't seem to mind either my endless stream of questions or the sad reality that some of those questions are about things they already showed me just hours ago.
Now I'll see how much I retain by Monday.
Meanwhile - weekend! How I have missed you!
