looking for a few good ideas

  amongst the irregular verbiage

Back to Work

We all drag ourselves out of bed this morning with a real feeling of "back to school", probably legitimate in at least one person's case.

Traffic is light, and we park at McCarran and get Derek checked in for his flight without problems. Actually, he checks himself in, we just stand around looking like, well, parents I guess. Hopefully we're not too embarrassing.

It's been a fantastic three weeks, but now it's time to go back to the office and deal with a regular routine again. And perhaps it's coincidental, but it looks like Our Other Client is going to want us to ramp up work on StigmaBase for the next month or so. In some ways it's good to be working. In other ways I'm embarrassed by how little I managed to leverage the free time I had into some worth while pursuits. We've got a tremendous backlog of photos to assemble into online format, for example.

We left D as he went through security and drove to the Wonka office. Almost the first thing we noticed upon sitting down at our desks was that Lisa's computer was on, and was announcing that "220 imminent hard disk failure".

By the end of the day it was in a continuous spontaneous reboot cycle, but fortunately we had already copied her important data on to another machine. The good news is that they are going to replace the machine with a much better one.
