Short Updates

Man... Nothin' wastes my early morning time like social networking sites: Twitter, Facebook, etc. and I haven't even hit Bloglines yet. 6:31am

Just heard Timothy yell, "Yeah! That's what I'm talkin' about!" while playing MarioKart Wii. It sounds so funny coming from a five year old. 7:19am

Busy morning with conference calls to Finland (9am) and India (10am). Heading out to try our new cafeteria soon. 11:32am

Had a good lunch at our new cafeteria. The whole space seems freshly renovated and the food was decent and affordable. 12:44am

Laughing at Google Maps new "walking" routing option. Home to my office: 15 hours 37 minutes. Good to know! ;-> 1:20pm

Even funnier: The disclaimer - "Walking directions are in beta. Use caution when walking in unfamiliar areas." 1:22pm

I got to walk amidst our huge server farm, normally of limits except for IT staff. We were discussing a few flaky servers giving me issues. 3:59pm

EE Times explains why my 3-6 month future has a big degree of uncertainty on who will sign my paycheck. (related link) 4:17pm

Oh sure! NOW round trip tickets to Tampa/St. Pete are $155 round trip. They couldn't be that cheap last Feb when we had a wedding to attend. 4:34pm

Tried yet another obscure route home. Claire found out she will be on the "Navigators" team in 7th grade next month. 7:26pm
