"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
Upward and onward.

I put in my notice at DCI today.

Dan suggested I do the following, and I did:

Print out a copy of Nixon's resignation letter, cross out the date and his signature with a red Sharpie, and sign and date it myself.


<Danelope> You probably don't need Kissinger to notarize it, however.

The CEO laughed, and then cursed. We talked for a bit, and he told me he wanted an exit interview in writing, and then a meeting to discuss it. My TODO list is pretty long, but manageable assuming the CTO actually gets me the gear I requested a month ago.

In fact, I'm still at work (2355) doing installs to prep for next week. Michelle and I are driving up to ABE tomorrow morning, too. I'm spending the weekend with the Signeses and (I think) jcap. Gonna be so tired.

I'll be starting at Drexel University on February 14th, working with Andrew and Harry. Totally awesome. Free classes!


<@bda> hhoffman: What do I get in way of workstation/laptop?
<@hhoffman> bda: have you ever used punch cards?

<@eniac> new bag time dude
<@hhoffman> haha
<@bda> 12" is just right, though.
<@bda> Doesn't bang on my cervix.
<@hhoffman> don't know what to tell you bout that ;-)
<@bda> :)
<@eniac> tappin the ring eh
<@bda> True, true.

I'll miss working with Adamk, but it's good to know the sort of conversations we've had in the last four years have will be fair game at the new workplace.

Free classes!
