That's kind of an interesting job, is it moving like hundreds of tapes at a time or just random ones for specific client orders?

They have specific client orders that they need to fill. But there's a lot of orders that come in, so I need to stay on top of them. They just need to make sure to prioritize their orders to appropriate due dates so as to not piss off clients. But as long as everybody gets what they need on time, nobody complains.

I have to take video tapes that are in storage and bring them somewhere to be shipped out to clients.

Why are you still using video tapes?

Uh, a good question. I was actually talking about this with a coworker. They still use Betamax and VHS, but yet they have already upgraded to Blu-ray. They actually bought a bunch of PS3s to use as Blu-ray players (which I thought was funny). It's for convenience, I suppose. I think it may just depend on the clients' needs.

Y'know, I think that I use that term ("Every cloak...") more than the actual one.  I kind of forget that the real one is "every CLOUD."  ;D
