/me notices how long it's been since I've made an entry. Here goes:

Had fun this past week on a buisness trip. I had the job of verifying the installation of one of our products at Sun Microsystems in Denver, Colorado. Not much actually went wrong during the actual time I spent at the site, but getting there was another matter. Allow me to enumerate:

  • No real problems at the airport, but the car rental agency in Denver gave me a Kia Sephia. This was a car that couldn't accelerate to save it's own life. Couple this with the fact that it appears that Denver area drivers are ignorant of what a speed limit is. (There were places where I was doing 10 mph above the limit, and yet people were still passing me left and right.)
  • I get to the hotel I'm staying at (in Louisville, CO, a suburb of Denver), and go to check in. There's no trace of a reservation, even though I have a reservation number from the national reservation hotline. Panicked calls back to the office revealed nothing. Found out the following day that it turns out they had booked me in Louisville, Kentucky. &grumble;
Other than that, it was a very productive trip in that I got a large chunk of the thing installed.

I managed to push out new revisions of wml, fortune, and entity packages. Knocked off about eight or so bugs. Not too shabby.

Geez. I'm practically no further on NJS than I was last time I wrote an entry here. I need to make the time to push "Resurrection" out the door RSN.
