Another day in paradise

It's been an eternity since I posted something and a lot has changed since my last post. The highlights:

  • I'm still at the same job and was promoted to "Manager of Development" from "Senior Developer" in January. It came with a substantial raise and management responsibility of off shore resources.

  • I broke up with my previous girlfriend in December and have been going out with a new person for about seven months now.

  • I'm heading to Minneapolis for one day for a technical meeting with a new Fortune 500 client

  • I'm heading to Boston again in August/September to get trained on our soon-to-be-released ecommerce product

  • I bought a sweet museum quality wooden ship because... I've always wanted one (and just look at it!)

  • I sold my Xbox 360 and Wii and finally admit I am done with console gaming (except my PSP). I'll stick with a PC for gaming from now on.

  • I still don't have a Facebook, MySpace, or Twitter account.

  • I signed up for AT&T U-Verse IPTV service and absolutely love it. I passed on their Internet service for now since I had bad experiences with DSL in the 90s.

  • I had my porch torn down and rebuilt this summer (it was practically falling down). Now all I need to do is get a new roof, paint the whole house, get a new driveway, fix a hole in the side of the garage, and finish the basement. Copyright 2013 All Rights Reserved
