    I heard that all operations were being turned over to NANA and that each employee would be issued both a mop and a chef’s hat along with their standard cold weather gear

    Everybody is going to both a DA and GA in addition to their normal job. Hey we do it Palmer all year round, with House Mouse (cleaning the station) and GASH (Galley and Scullery Help) might as well take in Continent wide and scale it up with Pole and MacTown!!!

    I know Pole does that during the winter, except at Palmer we get to do it all year round and you be surprised how many scientists, especially PIs, hate doing it.

    Lots of good jokes went around, I fell for at least one of them (ATLAS 😀 )

    On a serious note, I went back to look and see when LAST year’s contract extension was formally signed…turns out it was 25 March 2010.

    And then, it turns out, the current extension WAS formally awarded on…31 March…and publicly announced at 6:32 PM on… 1 April 2011. No fooling.

    Don’t worry about long term employment with RPSC….but assuming you are interested in working in the program in the future it would be wise to not do anything that you might regret in the future. 😀
