I've obviously been lacking in posting as of late. I partially blame that on having class twice a week, but it's probably mostly due to just not getting around to it. Thankfully class is now done (for good, at least until I decide to take something else), so things are slightly more relaxed around here.
Of course the big news has been snow, snow and more snow. We've already hit the record for December, and there's still a week left. Thankfully after yet more tinkering my snow blower has been running fine this winter, but I'm running out of places to *put* the snow. And the street is steadily getting narrower and narrower.
A few weekends ago I drove down to Decatur (IL) for a family get-together, the first time I've been down there since 2000. It was nice to get out of town and visit with some people who I haven't seen in a while.
Oh, the job. Things have continued to go very good. I like my boss, I like my coworkers, and I like what I'm doing. Some days are slower than others, but I've had my fingers in several different things already, which keeps things interesting. Hopefully it all continues.
Maybe I'll see if I can actually, oh, I don't know, post a little more frequently.

DOB 2/16/79. I'm a web developer at the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. I like lots of old music, including The Who. I spend a lot of time working with computers. And my favorite TV show (when I actually decide to watch TV, that is), obviously, is The Simpsons. Education:
In May 2002 I officially graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a BS in computer science. In 1997 (man that seems like a long time ago) I graduated from Washington Park HS. Yes, I know, that site isn't very impressive, and no, I haven't touched it for several years.
One of the best experiences I have ever had was on a trip called Western Field Studies. This is a 33 day adventure throughout the western United States. Students travel on a school bus to national parks, monuments, forests, and places of historical interest and camp out (in tents or under the stars). I was a part of trip 25, which took place in the summer of 1996. A first for WFS was we took along a laptop computer and kept up a web site. That link will take you to the 1996 site, where there is a link to the current site.
