Holy cow what a week ...I'm 150% stuffed, my head is full of new stuff
Today I started to learn about electronics, I had to replace a joystick on a machine ...easy I thought ... wrong, no such thing as plug and play on some of these older machines.
After removing the stick from its mounting, I was confronted with a loom of wires .... which had to be "unsoldered" and then redone... I took photos with the hope they would be helpful with the reassembly... they weren't, the connections on the replacement unit were a little different ...so, I had to seek help. The last thing I needed was a right turn input becoming a left turn.
Anyway, to cut a long story short, it got done,(with the help of my 30 year old tutor) but I blew out the hours allocated to the job by 50% ... they wrote it off to "age"
To be honest, today rattled me a bit ... mainly the time deficit, so I mentioned to them, that perhaps, it's not a good idea to task me with these type of jobs ..at the moment.
Ok , it may not work out, and to be honest again, if I were the employer, I would be thinking "do we have time to train a 60 year old" ?
I said the other day, that I know 80% of this job...but, it's that bloody last 20% that might make or break it.
But...all that aside ... have a great weekend team and take care.
