Tomorrow is New Dog Day at Our House

I'm due to pick up our latest addition tomorrow afternoon at
<--SFO and then head for home. The little guy is just 8 weeks old and is taking a long and difficult trip to get to his destination. First, a plane trip from Texas and then a long drive through California. Tomorrow's going to be one tough day for at least one of us. I'll document the immigration from TX and get it up on the site this weekend I suppose. Spent the last couple of days locked away in my room doing analysis and getting over a little bout of under-the-weatherness. For the past week and a half I've been analyzing some disk I/O problems at a Boeing subsidiary, but now it looks like I'll be returning to completing the Failover Project. I ran into my CEO this morning who (only half-jokingly) asked me if the Failover was ready to go today.

No pressure though. -->

Next week, I'll be packing up and leaving my digs of the past half-year in Glen Park. I had a really good time and Carole was a good landlady and friend. I hope we'll stay in touch.

For a while, I'll be sharing a house with Wallace,
my former neighbor, back in Castro Valley while
I'm completing the Failover and a few other projects. -->

ComputeSpace is starting to get cranked up. I'm writing a web database tool for use in organizing the astronomy curricula from different states. 2 days behind schedule on that.

I'll be home in the recliner, knocking back a cold one (diet Coke!) for Christmas and spending some quality time with my loved ones (Pebble Beach and the Jed Smith Forest). Angie can come, too.

Then we'll be performing a trans-California injection maneuver and winding up in L.A. to hang out with Mom, kids, grandkids, cousins, etc. If we time it right, along the way we'll catch up with Michele, Shirley, Carole, Wallace, Roberto, Patrick, Gary, Dave and Greta, and Jean. It's a lot like planning Voyager encounters.
