Been in deep geek mode for most of the weekend, doing a major rebuild of my home network computing infrastructure. Details are at my professional blog, which I won't link to from here, but it involved a number of bleeding-edge technologies that help insure that I have no trouble getting another job if my current employer craters.
I just got back from the store. My neighborhood store is a shabby little local independent chain where the air of defeat is prominent in the air. Their prices are good, but they don't carry everything I want, so I went to a bigger regional chain to get a couple of things I needed. And standing outside the doors were those evil green-wearin' elves again... so now I have five boxes of Thin Mint cookies that need eating. See ya later :).
