I Hate Moving

I really hate moving. I can’t stand having to pack up all of my stuff and throw it into another place. It really sucks, especially considering I just finished rewiring my computer room the way I wanted it. Oh well, what do you do…?

I have accepted a Network Administrator position in Wausau working side by side with my good friend Ryan. The best thing about this arrangement is that Ryan has only been with the company for two or three months, and he’s there because I sent him a copy of the job posting. Damn glad I did, too, because a hefty raise for both of us is the down and dirty result.

So, job offer in hand, I head to my current supervisor with a leave note. Since I’m within days of getting hired on from my staffing company, I figured I would get some kind of counter-offer. Yeah, right. Instead, I basically get this response: “OK, when are you leaving?”

How would that make YOU feel?

Overheard

Person 1: I’m so bored I’m playing with my sugar.

Person 2: Just as long as you don’t playing with something else, especially not in front of me.

…lengthy pause…

Person 1: But I wouldn’t make you touch it.

Site Design Update

Just a quick update to let you know what’s up. Currently, I have a completely redesigned HTML version of the site, which I can hopefully launch in the next week or two. There’s a bunch of work, so please bear with me. I am going to work on a Flash version as well, but I need to get a few more things figured out first.

Special thanks to Brando, who will be the first contributing author to the new site. Hopefully I can add some more people so that I’m not boring you all the time! Anybody interested in posting on a semi-regular basis, please drop me a line.

Search Angst

It was too good to be true. I know that I had read in the past that Yahoo was going to be using the Google search engine, but I was hoping that the format would stay the same. If you take a look at Yahoo now and compare it to Google, you’ll see some remarkable similarities. Like the fact that the only difference is that the Yahoo search displays the results in a UL bullet listing.

Maybe I just don’t like change.

Need Fireworks

I need some fireworks. Fire! Work continues on madajczyk.com, but will most likely take a few more days. I’m going to be working with some truly cool stuff, like XML. I also plan on hooking up to a SQL 7 database for parts of the website. In addition, I’ve got a web application I want to build, mainly ‘cause I’ve had the tools to build it for the last year and I never put them to use… Oh well. Enjoy the holiday!
