Making remote workers feel like part of the team is one of the trickiest parts of management. However, by focusing on the right technology and on effective communication and personal interaction you can create a productive remote work scenario.

Last month, I started my newest project, building a MAME arcade cabinet. The technology side didn't seem very intimidating to me but the woodworking side was a new challenge. I had to purchase a table saw, a router and a few other tools to get the job done. I learned a lot about woodworking throughout the project; mostly to choose your pieces of wood wisely and that I need to be more patient when sanding.

In the process, I cut myself, gave myself a third degree burn with a hot glue gun, spent too much money and cut a hole in a mop bucket that was misappropriated as a saw horse but thankfully in the end it all worked out. As always I had my helper Dash egging me on. It's not perfect but I'm quite happy with the outcome not only is it a full blown arcade game, but thanks to a thumping sound system and some slick software it's also a full blown jukebox (Not to mention that it is still as a fully functioning computer).

Anyway, I recently finished the actual building of it and I wanted to share some pictures. At this point, I'm working on the side art. I'm considering adding some Dali or Escher artwork to match the motif of my office but I haven't made up my mind. Any artwork ideas?

World cup is an international war for the nationalists anyway.
(and nationalism teaches you to take pride in shit you haven't done and hate people you've never met.)

At one time or another, we've all felt were burned out, unwanted or on our way out the door. What if you're not ready to go? How can IT workers get their career back on track with their current employer?
