So now I'm cooking along on the Ultra 2, with much more RAM and much more hard disk space -- and a bounty of CPU power as well! One of my friends described this upgrade as "going from a bicycle to a Ninja motorcycle." They weren't far off, that's for sure. With that stress mostly out of the way I can go back to tinkering part-time with my Xterminals and working on coding up next year's MFF art show database system.
As for the other things going on in my life, there hasn't been much to mention as of late. Work has proceeded to suck in such a manner that even light cannot escape. My resolve to quit smoking broke down yesterday when I hit my flashpoint and nearly walked off the property. I have really, really reached a point where something has to give with the company, my status as an employee, or my psyche. I'd really rather it not be the later option, because I've got enough work ahead of me as it is.
I'm ready for this weekend, oh yes. Who wouldn't look forward to killing time and hanging out with good food, good friends and (very important) good booze! No Mom, I'm not an alcoholic. Not yet, at least -- alcoholics go to meetings.
More to follow.
