I think I should retire....
I wouldn't call myself totally a luddite (OK look, I've managed to enter the 'blogoshere' and just about continue to keep my head above water ;-) ) but it seems that my workplace is turning into a paper-free zone!
Which is a bit strange when you consider it's a library.
So, today I've had to encounter electronic payslips and leave-booking forms plus a new till system. Plus our intranet requires me to now have an official signature (which was a new definition of hell to set up) even though I rarely have access to said service and never send internal emails anyway.
And in a couple of months it's 'bye-bye' to the staff counter as the library goes self-service. (yay - not!)
I know things have to change from time to time, but a lot of this has meant extra work for no reasonable benefit.
Except to the box-tickers in their ivory towers!!!! (Col B - if you read this, I think the exclamation marks are totally justified on this occasion!)
OK - rant over - normal service will be resumed ASAP ;-)
