Well it looks like there's a good chance that I'll be moving out of the marketing (yes, I said the M-word) department and into engineering. Thank god. I'm tired of writing whitepapers that are so full of marketing that they're grey. To actually be allowed to hack Perl and C on the company dime would be like mana from heaven.

Of course, working for a small company, one might think changing departments is a relatively easy thing to do, but nooooo.... got to deal with departmental head counts and stuff like that. I guess nobody told them that my pay check comes out of the same place regardless of what deparment I'm in.

On a lighter note, I didn't get the PS2 last night. I wasn't going to have time to play on it last night anyways, so what was the point of spending $500 for the console and a few games if all I have time for is looking at the pretty box? Of course today is a different story....

Started playing with C again... Working on hacking tcpreplay to get it to do some cool things... hopefully I can get Matt Undy to include them in the offical distribution (whenever that get's back up).

Also trying to figure out wether I should get a PS2 or not. The XBox looks cool, but it's a M$ product and I don't buy M$. (even if they don't really do anything other than marketing) Part of me just wants to get a PS2 today just to spite M$ and the XBox launch, but the more I think about it, the more it starts seeming like a good idea.
