Personal Entry: Long time, no see

Wow. Has it really been since Monday since I posted last?

Things got a little crazy at that three letter company I work for. Apparently I've jumped out of the frying pan and into the Fire.

So, two weeks ago, I was asked to start training on some new duties. I didn't think much about it at the time, but that following Friday, I was told to move into a new office.

I wasn't sure what to make of it. After all, I was being moved out of IT. I've been doing network operations for the greater part of five years, now I'm being switched to Ops.

I've worked the full week on my own now, at my new job. It's not bad, apparently everyone but me has been told I've been promoted. It is more responsibility. The paycheck of course does not reflect my new job, but that's how it goes in a depressed economy.

So, personally, I don't know what the Hell is going on. To be frank, it's a line of business that is recession-proof, and I'm entrenching myself with some specialized skills. I just might be okay.

Classes start on the ninth. The three-letter company offers a nice tuition reimbursement policy, and I might as well make full use of it.

Hang on, it's going to be a bumpy ride.

Various Topics: Time to clean up the Assignment board

Once again, time to clean up all the stuff that's been on my to-do list:

Choice of a new information

ChoicePoint, a data mining company, has been supplying the FBI with all kinds of information about you. The problem? It doesn't have to be all that correct. Read this interesting article...including instructions on how to get your very own dossier.


It's easy to not understand why the Patriot Act is so bad. After all, if you are a white, upper middle class man like me, this kind of thing will never happen to you.

Keep Internet Tax Free

The Bush administration has this one right.

Yup, read that line again if you need to. I agree with Bush when it comes to Internet taxes. If only we could convince states to see the same logic.

Reality Bites

Reality shows are slowing down for next season. Why?

Some advertisers don't want their products shown after a contestant has gagged on horse rectum on "Fear Factor."
