That updating thing

So friday was my last day at Six Apart. I spent most of the week down there getting as much of what I know about LJ documented and transferred to my compatriots. Everyone was really friendly all week. I think that the entire company came by my desk to say hi/bye to me. The last day was kinda sad though. We were pretty busy though so I didn't dwell on it too much. Foo Bar was fun, but that was where it really started to sink in that it was all over. I still keep thinking of ways in which life will be different now.

So I've got a week off before I start and the big G. I've never really had a vacation like this. I have things that I need to do over the next week, but there are no real deadlines. It's nice.

Today I rode down to the BMW dealer and looked at all the pretty bikes. They were having a gear swap and demo ride. I sat on the new R1200R, and I have to say that I'm impressed. It's lighter, more powerful, more comfortable, and it looks better than the old model. They had the BBQ truck there so I picked up some tasty brisket for lunch. mmm.... BBQ...

When I got home I went about removing the graffiti that someone decided to paint on the side of our house. When we got tagged I ordered this stuff called Smooth Max. Since it arrived while I was away I didn't get a chance to use it right away. However, it did an amazing job of removing the week and a half old paint from our vinyl siding. I'm really amazed by this stuff. Highly recommended.

Then my brother came over and we worked on a web site that he's building for his former boss.

Now I'm working on Sneezy.

I used to play way back in the day, at about version 3.2 I think. I am now officially the site provider and the systems admin. You should come and play again, it's at version 5.2. Once we work out the crash bugs things should be smooth again.
