Well it should be clear by now that I am a big old liar. Or at the very least I have trouble meeting my own expectations. I said i was going to be all over your friends page, drowning out all the others. I said that two days ago, and have said nothing since.

Well, there has been good reason. I have been getting very busy here at work, and I have been doing video compression on this workstation (for those of you unaware that is a "processor-exclusive" activity, meaning I can't do anything while the video crunches.) It is slow work on this machine, but hopefully the $$ will come through soon for the super compression workstation with the dual 650's, and that will speed up things a great deal.

Oh, mateo, I will email you those pics soon as I get home where they are stored. I could have sworn I took more pics than I did, and I am disappointed with my camera's low-light performance, but I will send those along shortly. Oh, and I am actually in the 400's in the book, currently page 462. I am intrigued by the whole dual-timeline bit, and eagerly await the time when it starts to merge. Thanks for the Freedy clip too...

I'm so bad about chatting. I sign on in #secrets, then get absorbed in actual work stuff, and then go back an hour or so later and find I've missed everyone. Plus I often forget to change my nick to reflect my AFK status, stuff like that. Oh, well, I guess I shouldn't worry if I'm doing work, huh?

Speaking of work, I have my 1 year review pretty soon. Actually its about a month late, but I'm not too concerned. Things are going pretty well, and any pay rate change will be accompanied by a retroactive check covering the time lapsed since the review should have been.

Well, I think I'll close off this entry and go edit it to reflect where I want the paragraphs to be...
