w00t! I got a promotion! Friday was a good day. Interview in the morning, promotion in the afternoon (thanks to UGA's oddball HR, you need to apply for open positions just to get a promotion.. there isn't a way for someone to say "you're promoted"). Whatever, it's a bit more cash and a hard money line. Rock on.

Nice weekend drinking beer, doing *nothing* really productive, trying to be helpful on taroon-list, paid the bills, planning for Ireland, and light puttering about the house. Was really burnt out this week and between me getting the new job, Jess finding out she'll be teaching in the Spring was just enough crap off my shoulders to allow me to relax. Tommorrow might even be fun again.

Why was I burnt out? Carpooling and dealing with moving dns3 and surreal took almost all of my week. Punt downtime Thursday sucked too, SMTP AUTH turned its self on even though admind said it was off. This cause ever Netscape client to get a login prompt when sending mail. This got all the directors and others hot and bothered. I hate those things.

Oh, many thanks to ~spot for cleaning up some bugzilla tickets for me on Friday!
