Shape-shifter would have been even better

"I am the photonics time-shifter" said the voice at the other end. I had been paged a few mornings ago (oh, the joys of a work pager), and I was returning the call. I've heard the expression before, but it never stops making me giggle. The idea is that we have people working with us offshore, with a time difference of almost 12 hours. So during our nighttime, they use our labs remotely. However, they sometimes need someone on-site to move cards around and such. This is the person known as "timeshifter", working on India time but in Ottawa.

I wish my title was half as cool!
