An Update

Well I guess I'll actually write in this thing. To those of you reading the feed of this over on LJ, sorry about spamming your f-page. Apparenlty the inital pull got a TON of entries and dated them so they just took all the space.

Anyways, last weekend Adalya had her 3rd birthday. Its hard to believe that she's growing up so quickly. Seems like just yesterday I had to hold her and feed her from a bottle, and suddenly now she comes up to me and yells "I want a hot dog". My how quickly times change.

Work has been rather boring lately. Just not much going on around here. Hopefully I'll figure something to do to keep me busy.

I've done a ton of work on IJ lately. The biggest being getting OpenID support working. This has really changed the way that I am going to look at authentication from now on. I love the idea of being able to prove who I am to any site without giving that site ANY of my personal information.

Well I am already out of things to say, I suck at keeping this thing updated. Maybe I'll get into the habit of doing it. Probably not though.

State of the site

Okay, I have noticed some people have noticed that I have not been very active in updating the site and getting things up to date. I have to fess up to this. My mind has been elsewhere. Work has been getting hectic. I got my yearly review, and it didn't go so well. Last year I spent so much time in IJ, that I neglected my real job. So this year I have been pouring all of my attention into it. I have been working on a big project that is nearing completion. Once this is done, I will have more time to dedicate to this site.

There are a number of bugs that need to be fixed, and will be fixed with the next update from the LJ source tree. This is going to be a big update and will take me awhile to merge the code into the InsaneJournal tree. Once that is done, I really need a large number of users to help me test things. You need to find things that you know are currently broken and test them against the new code.

Also in this code update are some changes that help block the comment spam that we are getting. I am fighting it every day, thanks to the spam reports that you all are sending in, we have done a great job of slowing the amount that is able to get by. But some is still getting by.

I just really want you all to know, that I am not ignoring IJ, it's just that life outside of IJ has gotten in the way. I will be doing everything I can to get the activity on this site back up as soon as humanly possible.

I feel like updating

I dont know what I plan on writing. I am just going to type and see what comes out.

Its been a rather uneventful past couple of days. At work I am trying to pass the time until I go to SA to start my training. I am sooooooo excited about this promotion. This is what I have been working towards for a long time. And its not the money I am all excited about, its the chance to start learning. Its the oprotunities that this position will open up for me down the road. With this kind of experience I will open myself up to hundreds of jobs that I wouldnt otherwise have had an chance at.

Away from work life has been quite peechy. I am happy at home, I love Tanya and the baby more and more every day. I am soooo excited about the coming of this child. I dont think words can express it. Money is extremly tight right now, but I am not (too) worried about it. The money issues will work out, they always do.

We went over to Kims last night. I was preparing to run out and get some stuff so we could make dinner, and she called with an invite to come over for corned beef and cabbage. I would have to say that was the best corned beef I have ever had (though I've only had corned beef a handful of times). Kimmie has to be one of the best cooks that I know .. her food always tastes like a professional chef made it.

I havent mentioned it here before but I have a small little thing on the side that I have been working on with a buddy of mine. Things with it are going allright, though we need to start recruiting people better so we can at least break even on this venture. I have learned a lot with the coding that I have had to do with this server. Its been interesting,

Well I cant think of anything else to write, so I will end it here.

Been feeling lazy

I haven't wanted to write anything lately .. but finally I think I have the motivation so here we go.

Well the pregnancy has hit a small snag. Tanya has gestational diabietes(sp?). Its not serious if we monitor and maintain Tanya's blood sugar, but if we cant then it could become a problem. There are only 8 more weeks until the baby :-D.

Well the company finally let me catch the carrot. I found out today that I have the SA positon That kicks some major ass. Its a decent raise and I get off of third shift which seems to be a good thing. I will work only 4 days a week (saturday, sunday, monday, and tuesday). And I get a decent raise. The only bad thing about going to 1st shift is that I am not going to get a shift differencial, which would mean about 400 a month more a paycheck .. ugh.

Anyways I am really excited about this. This has been a long term goal of mine and I have finally accomplished it. I guess I am just too emotionally drained. I watched probably the most emotional thing I have ever seen on TV. I have been a big fan of ER for the past few years (thank you for something else wonderful Tanya). And tonight was Dr. Greene's (Anthony Edwards) last episode. They killed him off in a very emotional way. The writers and actors on this show make you truly care about them as if they are your actual friends, and seeing one of them die like this really tugs on your heart strings.

Well thats all I have to write for tonight. Maybe if I am feeling up to it I can write more later .. then agian probably not.
