Wow. Lots of stuff going on.

Good stuff:
  • Got to talk to my little brother for quite a bit last night, before he ships out to Iraq.
  • The new house still rocks.
  • I got a new monitor for my home office setup, a 19 inch TFT LCD flatscreen. Happy monitor!!
  • I start at Cerulean Studios on Monday, and am very much looking forward to it.
  • Because of the Cerulean job, that means Friday is my last day here at Quicksilver, also a good thing!
  • Trill2Go, an addon for Trillian which allows you to use Trillian from a wireless bidirectional text device (i.e. two-way pager, RIM unit (a.k.a. Blackberry), cellular phone), is working in a prototype stage and being used by testers!

Bad stuff:
  • My little brother is shipping out to Iraq today or tomorrow. This is my baby brother we're talking about. I know he's a damned good Airborne Ranger, but I'm still worried about him. :(
  • My DSL is STILL not installed, and Earthlink has frelled up the order AGAIN, and put a hold on it AGAIN, which means I have to wait and start over in the install queue AGAIN! If I cancel and go with something else, I'll have to pay $150 (on top of the $150 they charged for 'cancelling' at the old house to move to the new one, but which they will credit towards the new DSL if I install). But I'll tell you, Speakeasy business class SDSL is starting to sound REALLY REALLY NICE right now. Or even a cablemodem.

Le sigh. I want my broadband access back! Still, at least life is good overall!
