This semester's fresh crop of eager young co-op students arrived yesterday.
Day one is usually orientation for the new students, and then they set up the development environment on their machines. Except this time. User account creation has been brought home to the mother ship, so with the six hour time difference nobody ended up with a user account yesterday.
It seems that since our team lead is on vacation, the "user account creation" workflow is stuck, waiting to be shepherded through the next gate.
I just love it when "employee onboarding" becomes "employee waterboarding"...
