Well done, Dan.  I stayed home and went to bed early but did manage to consume more than I should.

Then you deserved every bit of the white wine.  Speaking of which, I could go for some of that...

The wife and I just played our first game of The Duke.  Our second game has been put off until the boy sleeps again.  Coming on Friday will be the updated version of Dungeon! which I had as a kid.  Turns out it has solo rules and is for ages 5 and up.

Happy New Years gentleman! I hope you all had a safe and happy evening. The fiancee' (BAM!) and family stayed up eating nachos, drinking beer and playing Halo. A great end to the year my any measure to be sure.  O0

On the job front, some very cool news. Out of 60 applicants, approx. 20 of us were invited to go to LA and test for the position...I was one of only 6 that passed. Here is hoping my years of experience doing low voltage communication puts me at the head of the group. Crossing fingers.

Happy New Year folks.

The girlfriend and I ended up in a small town about an hour from where I live listening to my uncle's jazz band on New Years Eve.

Congrats on the new job possibilities, 'gunz.

Happy New Year, everyone.

I don't want to have to get back to 5am starts again. 7am is so much more civilised.

It's more interesting than optimal, and therefore better. O0 - Weirdo

I'm about to be starting an externship on Monday that will have me getting up at 5:45 AM Monday through Wednesday and then on Thursdays and Fridays I get to sleep in an hour before eight hours of classes. If none of you have heard from me a month from now, I've likely died of sleep deprivation.

I used to think I couldn't function on less than nine hours.

Basic training and then kids swiftly disabused me of that notion....

~0515 for nearly 19 years now...the child isn't helping the cause.  Can't imagine 'Dash-2' will help matters much.

So the wife wasn't happy that she didn't beat me at three games of The Duke last night.  She also commented that I needed to get better tile bags than blue and pink.

Anybody getting crushed by winter weather in the US right now?
