Okay, so the day started out just fine, then something went wrong.

Well, to be fair, it was only two minor events, but they happened right in sequence immediately after I posted the last entry.
First, I bashed my head on one of the glass doors in the hall on the way to the bathroom. I was talking to someone over my shoulder and leaned on one of the two doors then started to walk out. But, it turns out I opened the other door and ran right into the closed one, forehead first! Kabong!! THe worst part was that I had an audience.
Then, I get done in the bathroom and my zipper is broken! Argh! So, I had to hurry back to my office and figure something out before I accidentally “exposed” myself and looked like an even bigger dork. Well, I couldn’t find any safety pins, so I ended up using the smallest binder clips I could find. So, I spent the entire afternoon with binder clips in my pants.

Dignity? Yeah, I remember having that once.

ISPs and Updates and Such

Wow, it’s been a long time since I updated my blog!

For one thing, I’ve been wrestling with my web host/ISP for one of my other domain names. I wanted to get a simple upgrade done and two weeks later, I didn’t even have a status report, much less the upgrade. So, I decided to move that domain, which is Fantasist.net, BTW, to a new ISP. So far, so good. They seem to be better than the last folks and they sure are less expensive!

As for other updates, I’m still working at Loomis Fargo. In fact, they’ve started to make noises about bringing me on board full-time. So, I guess I’m still doing okay. It’s been a really easy job for me so far. Nothing more challenging than checking backups and dealing with printer problems, really. Of course, this weekend, I’ll be doing an in-place upgrade on a Novell NetWare server. Got to get up to version 5.1, or we won’t get Novell support! And, at the same time, I’ll update it to the newest NetWare Directory Services revision, too. Two birds with one stone and all that.

Well, that’s enough of an update for now. More later this week. Maybe how I survived Thanksgiving at my in-laws.
