At work I have become close friends with Polycom HDX. You haven't heard of him? Believe me, he is not someone a lady wants to set her cap at.
Today was one such occasion when a local TV station came to conduct a pre-interview test with our equipment linking to another Department facility. The extremely skinny and very fashionable journalist was very friendly but I liked her even more because she brought with her John. And John is an expert in AVL. Watching John navigate his way around the buttons on the remote control was amazing and so very helpful, even though that was not the intended outcome of their visit. What's more John is coming back on Friday and bringing with him John Number Two so I may learn even more. This is certainly a silver lining to what has been for the past 10 months a very dark cloud on my horizon.
