Geez, quarter to five already?

Time sure flies when you're not doing anything productive...it has been really, really quiet the last couple of days. I should appreciate the time while I have it; things are going to get very busy toward the end of the month. They've approved the upgrade of the training servers to a 64 bit version of Windows, so they can add a whole lot more memory, which has been a problem for some of our training classes. The downside is that it's going to require a whole rebuild of the training instances, which is where I come in. Still, I'm excited to be doing it.

I've read a couple of good books this week: J. A. Konrath's Dirty Martini, in which Lt. Jack Daniels has to find someone who's poisoning food in Chicago, and Christopher Reich's Numbered Account, in which a young man goes to work for a Swiss bank in order to find out who murdered his father, who worked for the same bank. Lots of laughs and suspense in the former, lots of intrigue and excitement in the latter.

We went out to the library this afternoon and then to the grocery store, so I got some exercise and a few good books (including a couple of Jonathan Kellermans and a Nelson DeMille), not to mention that ice cream is on sale (3/$10). We try and get out every day so we don't go stir crazy. We're bad enough as it is...

And now, for your Friday listening pleasure, from my vast music collection, three favorites by Gypsy guitar genius Django Reinhardt:

Limehouse Blues

Billets Doux - This song inspired the movie "New York, New York"

The Japanese Sandman
