i was supposed to have a meeting with the co-worker and our supervisor on Wednesday. "Some time in the early afternoon; I'll call you." Got a voice mail late Wednesday saying that she got caught up in meetings, but how about we try for early afternoon on Thursday. She's got a meeting at 1, maybe after that. Thursday afternoon, no meeting. Voice mail Friday morning saying she got bogged down with meetings and time-sensitive work, but how about we meet at 11:30 at her office. A few minutes before 11:30, she shows up at our cubicles, saying she's got to get some other stuff done before we meet, and she is busy with meetings from 2:00-4:00. So, we're meeting at 1:00 today. Unless, of course, other things come up.
The latest word on the technical fiascos of the project: if they don't get the problems solved by noon today, they are just going to install InDesign on our machines, so that we're all using that instead of having us use InCopy. The main benefit of using the two different programs is that we can work on the same files at the same time, us doing copy changes and them doing design changes. The main drawback of using the two different programs is that we can't seem to get it to work.
