Seems a friend of ours who has been unemployed finally got a decent jorb. Not quite what she really wanted, but good enough. She had an interview at my company, too, yesteday, but got an offer at the other jeorb, so that's that. This is good, because it means she doesn't have to move away and disappear.
I had a chess game last night. I played against a guy I beat a few weeks ago. I won, but apparently I made a fatal blunder. I discuss it on my rather boring chess web-log. http://gztchess.blogspot.com/2011/05/last-nights-game.html The answer is Rf8+. If ...Kxf8, Qb4+ followed by Nxg3. Black has only a knight and rook for the queen, which is definitely not sufficient compensation and White will likely snap up some more material very soon. Things are not looking good at all. So that makes twice in a row I made a mistake that he didn't notice and then he made a mistake that I crushed.
So I've won all of my chess league games so far. 4-0-0.
I've got some big projects to finish at work. Things would be easier if we had tools, things would be better if I were in predictive modeling instead of this crap.
It's bloody windy. And chilly. After a weekend where it allegedly hit 90 degrees.
I like the wifing unit.
Man, I've been on facebook for seven years now. I'm not sure of the exact signup date, but it was spring of '04. It was either that year or the next that the scavenger hunt had some kind of "assbook" mockup. I know it was back in the day when it was still "thefacebook" and not "facebook". It was probably the next year.
I need a nap. I've been tired. I just gave a meandering status update in the team meeting. Good thing it's not in-person. I'd be yaaaawwwning.
Huh, my other web-log got more hits in the last month than in the entirety of its history.
Reading Flashman, too. Good stuff. The wifing unit is finishing Anathem. She's rather enjoying it. I don't know what she'll think of Cryptonomicon. I don't know what either of us would think of that dreadful trilogy.
