Well, things have gone quite well the past few days. Made a trip to Denver for an interview with a new company. Denver seems like an awesome place to live, tho I didn't really see much outside the office building I was in. Also, I got to meet Erbo while I was there -- he's one cool dude. :)

I stopped off in Atlanta for the weekend for Dad's 50th birthday. We threw a suprise party; great fun for everyone. Of course, a fair amount of acting and deviousness was required. :) It has been refreshing to be with my family again and I'm ready more than ever to get back into programming...after some time with the gf tommorow. ;)

My dad just got a cable modem put in yesterday. Techie came out to install it but didn't have a clue. My dad and I watched for an hour then intervened and got it working in 10 minutes. I wish you could just option to do the modem installation yourself. Speaking of cable modems, I'm really torqued at BellSouth for suddenly reversing their decision to roll out ADSL in Pensacola. They didn't even have the courtesy to tell anyone. Now I'll be stuck with my lovely 48k connection for who knows how long...hmm..that's one more reason to move to Denver. :)
