Today I started my new job as Thematic Knowledge Services Manager at AusAID, Australia’s overseas development agency.
At the same time, I am still waiting on Optus to supply my ADSL modem so that I can access the internet from home. It took two weeks and one fault report before Optus got my telephone working so I am not greatly impressed with Optus’s level of customer service.
And don’t get me started on the move from Sydney to Canberra with a certain large removalist company – careless is one word to describe them!
But I don’t want to dwell on the shortcomings of moving locale and getting 21st century services connected in the nation’s capital…
For now, I am back on deck and looking forward to my new role.
