Things have picked up here. The EE department changed their name to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and as a result, they wanted to take ece.tamu.edu. This has created a bit of a mess. Second, the CE group is moving. We moved a bunch of people out of Zach 100m and are now doing renovations in the new space. Once done, everyone is going to move over there. Also, I was told about some new network changes that were going to happen in the near future. I could see the writing on the wall. There is going to be more work in the future. So here is the result:
They are not paying me a cent for this. I have started having to do more and more work with no compensation. The only thing that I get out of it is an office with a window, but this is not worth it, especially considering what happens when I do the math. Our new office space has 14 window offices, and we are going to have 13 faculty in the near future. This means that it is very likely that there will be only one window office left. Only about 6 of the offices have descent views, and 1 of those I know is already claimed. The end result, I will likely not get a good view, so the only perk to the job is now useless. So, why keep doing it.
Good luck to them in terms of finding someone else.
