Due to their tireless efforts, unending perseverance, and avoidance to blame failure because "we're out of Mountain Dew", I have now decided to refer to the FTI IT department (formerly known as the most hated and reviled department here at FTI) now simply as the "FTI IT department (the most hated department) here at FTI". Their efforts over the weekend resulting in the clockdown count feature in the "An example of Greed" section to the right of this post is of their creation. For that, I commend them.
During our periodic visit to Superior Court, the judge this past Friday ruled to increase the bond level necessary to guarantee that our judgment is satisfied. He failed, however, to set an amount by setting the matter over until September21 to allow a ruling by the State Court of Appeals whether this whole mess is even going to advance at all. If so, he will determine a number and rule accordingly. If not, this whole mess is over and we collect what is in the kitty and get an order for the rest. Either way, more money is on it's way. The graphic to the right summarizes this in an eye pleasing way.
I wish there were no need for any of this; I am so tired of this whole matter. It really does wear a person down. The one plus, though is that our IT department has garnered some new respect from me. I, for one, would not want to be both hated and reviled. I think "most hated" has a nice ring to it.
