Well, overall a slow day. I did some online job searching and applied to a couple here in town. Sometimes it drives me nuts that Eugene is such a little techie backwater, when it's got so much potential to make it big. Sometimes, I think the town's still stuck in the rut of being the small logging town that it was 40 years ago, and they can't just get out of it. They have a highly educated population, but they can't figure it out, and all the intellectual elite either work for the uni or are too worried about chasing their pet cause-du-jour that they can't see any of this. Or... I'm so globally-brained I can't see the details and why it wouldn't work.

I did some more on the chezgeek index page, tweaking it to the standards of the gaming geeks. It's an internet cliche, but it's still "under construction"

I had to ditch my mountain bike a few days ago off of a trail and into some bushes (OK, I hit a bump wrong and I tipped over slowly), and now I've got more poison oak on my upper arms. It's funny to me, though. I've never gotten poison oak before, but this year I'm running into it all over the place.

Paul got my truck-truck fixed by trading services (possibly some web stuff and setting up a samba server) for repairs. I just got it back yesterday, but it seems like they fixed it up well.

As for the gaming geeks themselves, they are up in the Cascades fishing and "camping". They wanted me to go, but I don't like to go into the woods with more than 20 people at a time unless they are armed and looking for Charlie, if you know what I mean.

Later today, my goals are to set up a couple virtual hosts and start installing a shopping cart for Adam, the interiors guru, and his company, of which I am the go-to guy for his web development.
