      I think I'll take the leap. I guess we'll see how this turns out.

    • Decisions, decisions...

      So, advice on the path to choose is much needed!

      I had another job drop in my lap randomly and it's left me in a quandary.

      My current job...
      1. My project is only about 1/2 way developed and implemented, so I'd be walking away without closure. I have no doubt they'll cry.
      2. My current job is very secure and I certainly can't complain about my salary
      3. My boss recruited me because I've worked for her at 2 other companies so she's a very known commodity. The best bosses are those who's friendship is forged over wine.
      4. Once this major project is done, there are so many more waiting...I'll never run out of work. Huge variety available
      5. High profile projects, but not all projects are as technically challenging as I'd like.

      The new job...
      1. Bleeding edge technology; very, very technically enticing short and long term
      2. Large software development team including offshore hardware dev to manage
      3. The complete technical challege... Hardware, software, firmware
      4. I'm pretty sure they'd pay me just about whatever I wanted
      5. Much higher risk, the company is banking on this new product

      I think if we were 6-12 months in the future, I'd be all over the new opportunity, but I don't know that I can feel good about leaving my current project part way done. What would you do?

    • Time away

      Eclipse

      So... I took a week away to think and get some perspective on life. I went to Santa Cruz and hung out on the beach...with my blackberry and laptop in tow. Spent some time in San Francisco and Carmel. I promised my team that I wouldn't work, but I cheated some a lot. I seriously had dreams about servers crashing and production problems. Why? Because I am SO lame and overly invested in this damn project.

      I think I finally got my head out of work and relationship stress the day before I came home. I think I need 2 weeks.

    • So tired...

      I feel like I haven't slept in weeks. Wait, maybe I haven't.

      In the battle of good and evil... work is winning.

      Though, I did get a promotion and a raise on Friday...that helps.

      So... I actually said "Rad" out loud to myself while playing Wrath of the Lich King last night. That is not a word I use regularly and I'm not sure who I was channeling to say it this time, but I think it sums it up nicely.

      A few minor bugs here and there as expected in a beta, but thus far I'm awesomely impressed. The Death Knight starting area is just so fucking cool. The quests are fresh and creative, the achievements are a nice touch. Having your mounts and companion pets on a tab on the character sheet rather than taking up inventory rocks. And there are barbers. Hello...I'm sold.

      I'm really torn with playing all the new content or just looking around some more. I don't want to totally spoil the release for myself, but I think it'd be nice to get a head start on the masses at release by knowing how it flows.

      In summary...they've done a great job. Get ready to be re-addicted.

    • Seriously...

      I need to get a life... It's been a 70 hour week thus far and it's not even Friday yet.

      I'm addicted or obsessed or maybe both. How can it be possible to be addicted to work? When I do come home I have the choice of doing anything else or working. Can you guess what I choose? It's sick, but I can't seem to step away.

      Conference calls and IMing on the freeway, blackberry buzzing all night. It's out of control.

      I am so totally fucked up.

    • Sad days...

      My 22 year old cat died on Friday. She went into renal failure and slipped into a coma and I had to have her put to sleep. She was an amazing creature and I miss her tons.

      Yes, I know she had a very long and good life, but I miss her anyway. I look for her in everything I do, she'd normally be following me around.

      My heart is broken.

      How should people respond when so much is invested and then life just doesn't work out the way you'd thought. I mean, not working out doesn't make the investment not worthwhile right?

      A dream is a dream and it not coming to fruition doesn't make me sad that I had it.

      Should it?

      It's all good, Clipsy poo. You know you're still #1.

      You have fun this weekend now. You deserve it. I'm sure everything is going to go super well, don't worry about it.

      You're going to need to post pictures, though.

      grrr.. comment on gov't contracting didn't go through? wtf... basically, wouldn't do it, was supposed to do training software for comanche helicopter, and was pulled last minute.. :( couldn't wait until a few months, so some $$ could be made first... sheesh, 18 years, like $6billion, and pulled it when *I* am supposed to get a piece... oh well, not like I am bitter or anything... lol.

      Well, gov't contracting sucks, esp. millitary, was supposed to do the training software for the Comanche, and as you may well know, they pulled it at the last minute.. I wanted my share of the overspending damnit.. lol...

      Are you a God/Godess or God-like entity?
      Do you consider yourself sane?
      Do you ever hear voices in your head?
      Do you cut your own hair?
      Do you ever change subjects in the middle of a sentence?

      Couple questions from a sanity test that say'd i was 87% insane!

      Is that bad?

      ; ) HEYO
