Catching up

So much has happened since I last blogged… I really need to get into the habit of writing more often.

My wife had her 21st birthday. It was pretty uneventful. She hasn’t even had her first drink. She also made her own blog today. I’m so proud!

Work has gotten pretty crazy. I am now the webmaster of the company’s website, which has been fun so far. Since this isn’t a hacker site where I can tell people to go stick it if it doesn’t render in Internet Explorer correctly, I’ve had to figure out how to get a valid site to work with IE. Dean Edwards’ IE7 has helped out a ton. We also installed a Jabber server on the file server so that we have a reliable messaging server to talk to each other (MS Messenger just wasn’t cutting it).

With all of this happening at work, I’ve had little time to work on Coaster (this is beginning to be quite the standard blog topic for me). I started working on it again this weekend and I got some code duplication moved to the base classes.

Along with my hacking this weekend, we went and bought a fountain/waterfall thing for the bedroom and an alarm clock that plays 6 different nature sounds. It’s quite calming and I’ve found myself spending more time in there reading. It’s also been nice to wake up to the rainforest and the ocean.
