I've been here like 2 hours, and I've already accomplished more today than I did all day yesterday. This in spite of the fact that we had a fire alarm go off the second my butt hit the chair. I almost went straight home after that. Kinda glad I didn't though. If I had phone service in my new apartment, I probably would have worked from home today, but then I would have missed out on all the politics I've dabbled in today : service ownership, what it means to rewrite things, and the difference between "My boss said..." and "This is what's actually going to happen". *sigh*

The boss man usually does such a good job of filtering out the politics. I hate it when he's out sick.

I've already dealt with three "DHCP problems" today. One of which looks like it's actually a minor WINS issue, one is our ongoing battle over the lease DB file *yawn*, and the other appears to be a network problem... my guess is it's a cable.

In addition to carrying the group pager, I did some '-admin' work for news (why the hell did they feel the need to create the 'codewarrior.*' heirarchy? this should be under comp.*), dhcp, and majordomo this morning. Looks like I'm gonna do listserv for Peg next week. This work stuff is starting to be a lot like work. And all this before I've had my morning's caffeine.

Had a nice lunch with my Bro. We gossiped about dad for a while. I like havin' Wes 'round... I'm gonna miss him when he heads back to school. It's quite amazing that he manages to be at least as cynical as I.

Man alive!! People that don't even know me are actually reading this!!! How odd. jschauma, man, yer web page is out of control!
