I started a brief project (3 months) today that consists of scanning drawings, folding them, and sorting them both digitally and physically. It’s mind numbingly boring but there are a few redeeming factors:
1) I’m paid much better than a job of this type should pay.
2) The job doesn’t follow me at home in the least, unlike camp.
3) One of the conditions of my contract was an allowance for me to wear headphones. I’ve been listening to a lot of books on tape.
After about 6 hours of this, I asked the project lead why these drawings had to be scanned before being boxed. He replied that this information was important to have to scale and that some items would be hard to produce otherwise pointing at a drawing. He picked a bad drawing to point at. It was instructions on how to make a 4″ x 4″ square out of cardboard.
