Life:

New baby almost here!

New job is going well. It looks like I'm going to have to become a Perl Guru sometime soon, though.

And I really need to get an ISP hookup to the new house.

I REALLY REALLY need to sell the old house. Make me an offer, it's nice.

Hacking:

Nonexistant. See above. :^(

Thoughts:

Depressed by a recent newspaper series about travel packages to Cancun, other spots, targeted at high school kids. Packages include huge alcohol allowances and inducements to parties far wilder than I remember from college. Somehow, I just can't see encouraging binge drinking and irresponsible sexuality in 17 and 18 year olds as a good thing, and Nancy and I wonder where the situation will be at this progression in ten years when Josh gets close to that age. Very worrying as a parent; I hope we haven't quite reached the "bread, circuses, and orgies" stage of society by that time.
