Site Rollout

personal comments edit

Well, I just rolled out the new Corillian web site and it’s pretty snazzy if I do say so myself. The graphic artist here did the graphics and animation; I implemented that all in code and hooked up the back end stuff. Now it’s cleaner and faster than the last site, and way easier to maintain.

I went home last night and Jenn went to one of her meetings, so I played Playstation until my thumbs started to hurt, which, surprisingly, wasn’t as long as I thought it was going to be. I’m getting better at both Soul Calibur II and Amplitude, though I have to say that at this precise moment I’m more sucked into SC2. Loads of fun.

My boss has requested that I stop sending him emails that have the word “fuck” in them. Heh. That’ll happen.

I printed out the practice test questions for my next Microsoft test and this time it looks like it’s different than the other tests I’ve taken. This is more “here’s a case study, now answer questions about how you’d implement their solution.” That’s going to suck ass when it comes to actual test time because it’s going to be nigh unto impossible to see the case study and the question on the screen at the same time. I don’t even know if the test software will allow you to do that.

Anyway, I’ll be studying that stuff soon.

Once I finish that test, I’ll have an MCSD.NET certification. I’m not sure whether I want to go another two tests and get an MCDBA or not. I’m really, really sick of studying in my free time, and I’m not sure what, if anything, it’ll end up getting me. Here, probably nothing. Maybe it’ll open up doors at other companies. I’ll think about it.

I think I need to put a ShimmerScreen in my house. I don’t know where, but somewhere. These things are cool.

I’m feeling restless today. I have a lot of work to do, but it’s all shit I hate doing (reads: Portal Server). They need to make motivation in a pill form so I can get a prescription for work. I’m having issues, man.

I haven’t found anywhere else that carries the dining room set I want, so I may just end up ordering the set online, even though it’s a little spendy, and call it good. I’m tired of searching around; I’ve found what I want, I just need to get it.

Jenn’s birthday’s coming up on the 16th and I’ve been shopping for stuff, but it’s hard to shop for someone who doesn’t know what they want. I ended up getting a list from her and buying mostly stuff on the list, but I’ve always been of the mind that a good gift is something you want but don’t need, and is probably something you’d never buy yourself but would love to receive. Hard to do that for someone who doesn’t want anything. I think it’ll work out all right.

Man, I realize as I sit here typing that I don’t have jack to say. Like, I mean, aside from the traffic lately just pissing me off (it’s Oregon, people, it rains here… figure out how to drive in it!). Maybe I’ll come up with something better later.

Or maybe not. You never know.
