So, I'd sent my boss a mildly exasperated e-mail about the state of affairs at the North Campus, pretty much just for the record, expecting the kind of pro forma response I was used to receiving from his predecessors.
Nope. He said, "Yes, the place needs to be checked regularly and it has become very disorganized. You will be making regular visits. To start, we will meet up there with [the building maintenance guy, whose boss he also is] and come up with a plan to straighten things out."
The place has become half giant junk room and half a museum to its own past. I must admit, some of the "museum" aspect will be difficult to give up. Nevertheless, it's time to get the North Campus into the 21st Century.
