OK…since I last blogged:

– I got married. 31 October, 2007.
– I bought a house. 31 October, 2007 (Yes ,same day.)
– Moved into said new house. 19 November, 2007.
– Worked on a project that had me working 114 and 134 hours in consecutive weeks. (Last week of November, First week of December.)
– Had a bunch of time off between Christmas and New Year’s.
– Got a PS3 for Christmas…and a new keyboard and mouse and other toys, including a Nerf sniper rifle.

Now you’re caught up.

This week, I’m in intensive Silverlight training. I could explain what Silverlight is…but suffice it to say that I’m basically being forced to remember how to code in Javascript, when I last used it about 10 years ago. It hurts my brain. A lot. I remember the structures and theory, but the syntax is just plain painful. Doesn’t hurt that the Javascript I need to manipulate is attached to a file format call XAML, which isn’t what you think it is.

If I had more time, I’d really be enjoying this…but instead, I’m getting crunchy trying to force code by trial and error.

Anyway, I’ll try to write more frequently. Yeah, I said that before. But I really will be trying this time. Even if I have to slack off in a training session to do so.

Peer pressure occasionally works.

So there.
