I've been reading Thaler and Sunstein's "Nudges". Very fun. A company I interviewed at last summer was mentioned in the book as being a pretty good idea. I was amused. They were interested in hiring me, but I presume, since they didn't, they decided they wanted somebody at a higher level. They were waffling about that. I wonder if they're still in business.
Why. Oh why. There is somebody with 2143.75 as a value on this table when they are supposed to enter numbers less than 200. Somebody will have to beat the data entry monkeys. And I will have to fix it so they can't put in anything over 200. Not that it harms anything, it's just not right.
Okay. 6 minute speech. 3 minutes of it is mine. I just timed my intro - 1:30 minutes if I speak fast. And that's pretty stripped-down. I think that's fine. I should've brought my stopwatch today. My Ipod has a stopwatch on it. We have to hammer this stuff out.
Per yesterday's conversation, I'm thinking of getting a box of chocolates unless I can find a flower shop at exactly the right moment.
A friend is suggesting to our group that we consider doing D&D. I'm not really sure if I'm going to be into something that intense. I wasn't in high school. I see no reason to presume that I would be now. Then again, I do enjoy their company, and R might be in on it too, making the company even more enjoyable, so perhaps it's worth a shot, but does showing up for one evening imply tacit acceptance of, like, several more evenings of dungeon-lurking? I ask YOU, fellow Husite dungeon-masters. It's moot, because I'm going to be out of town for this session, but it will certainly come up again.
Just got a note: it should've been 143.75, not 2143.75. Looks like somebody (cough) should fix it so entries over 200 are not accepted.
Time, time, time! I have full evenings until May 8th. I got into work at 7 today. I'm not really busy at work, but all the rest, bah! And I'm 99% sure I'm not taking that exam, so I have some time back, but not enough. Well, there could be some down time on my trip to Texas this weekend, but I can't count on being too productive.
I will write.
