So, we found out yesterday that the bank has accepted our offer on the short-sale house we're trying to buy. If all things go smoothly, we're looking to be closing by the end of April. It still means no WDW trips this year, but it also means an incredible amout of space for the family, and maybe even a "real" office for the DW, instead of a laptop and a couch!

So I'm pretty happy this morning.

Congrats on the new house.

Morning gentlemen. Hope everyone is having a good day.

So Randall I'm not sure if I've missed this but is there a deeper layer to all the Penguin stuff. Are you some sort of Linux evangelist? Or is it just tied to the penguin jokes on the board?

If you, or anyone you know, is driving down to Disney for a Spring Break.

The Florida Highway Patrol is currently running a "Zero Tolerance" operation on I 95, I 75, I 4 and the Turnpike.

Seriously, they are not playing. They "might" give you ten over....they "might" not.

On the way to work this morning I was passed by Three Minivans (yes, Barry, I said minivans). One from Connecticut, one from New Jersey and one from Maryland. All of them moving over 80 mph (I admit I was shocked and had to double check my speed to make sure I was seeing what I was seeing)

The reason I was "passed" by them is that they were headed into what is locally known as a "Florida Highway Patrol Nesting Area". I had sense to slow down and not rile them up---no need to kick the fireant bed.

Sure enough, all three of them were pulled over about two miles up the road.

I tried to warn them, but if an unmarked Charger with blacked out windows and multiple LEDs can't slow you down---a trooper will happily oblige "up the road".

Fair warning.
Zero tolerance, huh?? Maybe folks will realize the 95 isn't the posted speed limit but the actual interstate number . We're heading down on Tuesday for a short week. DW has to work on Monday night and we're gonna pick her up on Tuesday morning and hit the road. Luckily (I think ), we have a 15 year old with a permit, and I'm planning on putting her in the driver's seat for a couple of hours so that I can chill out for a few minutes while DW is sleeping (if that is possible with a 15 year old actually doing the driving ) because I'm one of those "struggle to drive in the morning" folks and I'll need that couple of hours to take a short nap. Luckily there are no interstate changes for quite a while for us, so I don't have to be awakened by the "daddy, do I take this road" comments. I just have to hope that she is actually doing the speed limit, because you definitely don't have to worry about her going 10 over. Maybe 10 under , but not 10 over.

Everyone have a great day.

Congrats on the new house. I'm supposed to have an office in our house, but it was taken over by DD. She doesn't know it yet, but she is being evicted this spring.

Hi Paul!
Your welcome. We signed a 3 year development deal with Linux. This was the start of the penguin influx into the office. I thought you would like it. Enjoy.

According to my contact, there should be golf balls, shorts and several other items on the way.

CRUD. 60 + pages behind and no chance to catch up. Trying to wrap up a $150K grant proposal and field work season is underway. If I get the grant my life will just get worse but the Ivory Tower will be happy. If I don't get it my life will be simpler but the potentates won't be happy.

Prayers for those in need, welcome new guys and congratulations to those deserving!

SU is giving me another shot at heartbreak again.

Paul would like to hit the penguin golf balls, I think.

When I worked at MSFT technical evangelist was an actual job title. I always thought that, that would be a neat role, (unless you were technical evangelist for Windows ME or any version of Windows Mobile prior to the current release)
