Update from Seattle, in summary format

  • Finished first week of work. Completed first task (optimization of some existing code) - was told that I was working too fast. :D Pending code review.
  • Dodgeball on Friday was rained out. Curses.
  • Next Saturday, Amazon is presenting a concert in celebration of its 10th anniversary. Headliners will be Bob Dylan and Norah Jones.

  • Finished watching ROD TV tonight. Excellent series, a bit weird at the end. But excellent. Particularly as a fan of the original OVAs...

I guess that's it. Now, the unconsciousness.

  • Hey, I remember this thing!

    I've been in pretty heavy lurker-mode lately, but November does strange things. That's right - it's National Novel Writing Month! I'm working on a…
