Exam marks are starting to trickle their way down the grapevine. And things look good - very good. COBOL, for example, ended up being far better than I expected. Architecture and Advanced Architecture both turned out pleasantly well. The exam for Systems Analysis and Design was fair, and I suspect I did equally well on it. The remaining marks will come out in due course, but I'm comfortable about them as well. :-)
Starting May 3, I become the Multi-Agency Systems Administrator for the South Shore Regional Library, a job which most of you already know I have, and which I've basically de facto had since 1997. I get to play with Linux servers, Java servlets and PHP galore, all while making sure the librarians remember how to center a piece of text in a Word document.
This eschaton of sorts is a bit of a downer. It will be nice to be home, but I'm leaving most of my friends scattered through creation. On the upside, I can now plan a trip almost anywhere in eastern North America, Alberta, British Columbia and Texas, and have a waypoint along the journey where I can stop and be guaranteed a warm bed, delicious food, and old-fashioned friendship. ROAD TRIP!!!!!
Finally, a gentle reminder to the ladies that I'm still single. Don't let me slip past your fingers, lucky ladies! You don't know what you're missing. :-D
