I’ve had quite a day indeed.
Last night, I reinstalled my home computer with Windows XP Media Center Edition (MCE). My initial plan was to partition my hard drive, install MCE on a new partition while keeping my old XP installation in tact. I ran into some issues.

Monday (20 Mar) was work. I can’t remember any specifics on what I did on Monday, so I’ll skip it.
Tuesday (21 Mar) was school. I had a test in my math analysis course. It was difficult. Last Thursday (16 Mar) I had a test in my probability and statistics course. This was my second test in each of those classes. It happened this way for the first test in all of my classes: Tuesday, test in first course; Thursday, test in second course; following Tuesday, test in third course. Makes for a fun time.

I have gathered some facts for this date..

I updated my sidebar again. You’ll notice some new fun items. I’ve added a new section entitled â€œCurrently readingâ€. This will list the books that I am currently reading. You can click on the book covers to take you to the corresponding Amazon page. Spiffy, huh?
Today is Monday, so I went to work. After work I came home. Becky and I had cheese ravioli for dinner. I enjoyed it. I ate my ravioli from a plate, Becky ate hers from a bowl. We started some laundry, and I am currently supposed to be studying for an Math Analysis exam I have tomorrow, but I’m blogging instead.
It’s my way of sticking it to the man. Ok, ok, I’ll get back to studying.
Monday is a long day at work.

..fingers get tired from typing and writing
..shoulders get tense
..brain is tired
Ah, but you have to put things into perspective!
At least I have a choice. I am able to live without persecution. I am thankful.
Obviously St. Patrick’s day is a made-up day to talk about Leprechauns, and green beer, and parades and kiss me I’m Irish…..but I thought I’d look at a different side of the day… Tradition.

Today is Wednesday which means I went to work. You see, I am employed full-time, like it or not. The good thing is that I live closer to work than most people live to their grocery store. This is a luxury that I take full advantage of at lunch time at least 4 days a week.

Did you know that there are eight steps you must follow to become a falconer? Well there are.
Does anyone need a super old-timey hobby?
Just trying to help.
This morning I went to work. In the early afternoon, Natalie (our office manager and help desk) e-mailed us (she works from home) asking if we were having e-mail issues. She said she was unable to send a e-mail off-campus, and was unable to receive e-mails from off-campus. I did a little test, and sure enough, not going through. So, I take a look at the access-lists and make sure that traffic can get through. Looks good. Meanwhile, Smetak (Matt Smetak, out systems administrator) takes a look at Exchange itself to make sure it is working properly. It looks good from that end too.

Kurt and I joined a video rental store a short walk away from our house. We rented Walk the Line starring Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash and Reese Witherspoon as June Carter. Continue reading “Movie Review”
