So that's all okay then.
The problem, though, is that we won't really know how things are going to change until the people we're hiring to tell us what we already know have told us what we already know. (There's also a parallel process involving transferring people from one location on a map to the same location on a map by moving them in a circle that's so small it's nearly indistinguishable from a point, and that might effect some change slightly sooner, but it's hard to tell.) In the meantime, though, it's back to sitting and waiting.
You might not think it from this post, but I really do like this job, most of the time.
