Mind you, that is still a 25% increase in miles driven. I'd like to figure out some way to work from home one day a week -- it would offset the longer drive. My current lease runs through February; I have to start looking around here and seeing if there is any place nearer to my office where the reduced commute would offset the sure-to-be-higher rent.
Meanwhile, it's back to real work: I've been asked to make a change in the project-tracking software I wrote that forces people to enter a status when they create a project. People have not been doing so, and because it defaults to status "unknown," those people's projects haven't been showing up in reports of open projects (or any other type, for that matter). Now part of the problem is that the reports were not written by me, and the person who did so was insufficiently imaginative -- I don't think she realized that she needed reports that collected projects in oddball states -- but I'll fix it.
