Its been a long time with no entries, so here's a summary of the last couple of months I guess. Work first... I've got a new job. I've been getting tired of localisation lately, to the point where I just didn't want to continue with it anymore. I was always fighting with someone to get the UK perspective across, it seems like it has been one big battle recently. So, a position in Marketing came up, and I went for it. I'm now the Client Release Manager, or the guy responsible for getting stuff on CDs and sending them to whomever. Its way more relaxed there, and I have the time to do the things I want, instead of fighting to get the day-to-day things done. I've had this idea on the back burner for a while now, to build a system for tracking CDs through the process, from beginning to end. It will compile the software, test it, burn the CDs, and track each step automatically. It will be fun, and rewarding, and I can't wait to start. I've had to spend the week getting setup though. I picked up my new laptop the other day, and it ROCKS. The monitor runs to 1400x1050, which is just obscene. The banner at the top of this page is about 750px wide, and it stretches half way across this screen.
Anna is thinking about doing a course in Archaeology. She has applied for it, but hasn't heard back yet. She also has a job lined up in the Passage later this year. One of the people working there is going on maternity leave, and not comming back, so Anna asked if she could have the job. Apparently they fell over themselves to say yes ;-) What else... we were in Paris last month, which was really cool. The weather was hot, and we had a hotel in Monmartre. Oh, we're going to Istanbul in October! Anna's parents bought us a holiday for my birthday, which they threatened not to tell me about until we got to the airport. I made them give it to me in Paris though, I couldn't wait that long ;-)
