Whew, it’s been a while since I wrote anything. It’s not like I haven’t wanted to, I’m a blabber mouth most of the time, and my mind races everywhere, but between work, family, and health, it’s been tough. This week work had me in a virtual classroom learning IBM Websphere Application Server Administration; which in itself isn’t bad, but tack on top of having to fight off some sort of Strep-Flu like thing along with it, and you have yourself a challenge. Luckily the class is virtual, so the instructor didn’t have to witness my pathetic half-dead presence in pajama’s. I was able to do the majority of the class from home, however I did try the class from a conference room at the office on Monday, but my illness got worse, so I opted to be home the rest of the week. The virtual class was the first real company sponsored training I’ve had in quite some time, and my first virtual instructor led too. It has gone rather well, but the only major snafu was the client software wouldn’t run on my Mac, even though I met all the requirements (I tried on my iMac and my Macbook Pro), good thing I have a dual-boot Windows 7 partition on my Macbook Pro. Today’s the last day of class, and now my poor wife seems stuck with what had inflicted me all week. I’m mostly over it now, but there are still a few lingering leftovers.
Before I sign off and prepare for the day, I wanted to mention Valve’s Steam service has just begun their Summer Camp Sale (DAMN THEM!)… So, I will most likely be emptying my wallet on more games than I will ever have time to play – sigh. I might finally decide to buy Oblivion with all it’s mods, maybe I’ll be able to finish that before Windows 8 comes out! – GASP! So Go! Be a good American and SPEND this fourth of July weekend!
