Crazy day. Conference call with some folks out in Missouri; Yes…It is possible that I could end up back in KC sometime soon. I don’t mind though, it might be nice to work on a continuing aspect of the last project I did out there. Maybe I’ll bring Brian and Ryan back with me….or maybe not. After I finished the conference call and on the way to lunch, I got a call from my brother letting me know that my Uncle Howie passed away this morning out in Las Vegas. This was very upsetting. Even though I didn’t get to see him very often, he was a good man with a good heart, and I will miss him. My parents are going out this weekend for the funeral; I would go too, if the airline tickets weren’t so expensive a day in advance. After spending time looking for a reasonably priced airline ticket, to no avail, I went back to trying to work on the assignment that I am tasked with this week, only to realize that there is still alot more I needed to know. After a quick discussion with one of the other developers, I realized that it was time to get a quick sandwich, head back to the hotel, and get to work. Of course, on the way back, I realized that I had left my key in the room and had to get a new one. After setting up the puter and plugging away at VB with my copy of “VB In A Nutshell” at my side, I began to download IE6, which I had put off for some time. Well, its done now, and it plainly rules. These guys just keep getting better. The best part is that there is no nonsense to deal with after the install; nice and clean, and you see the differences immediately in terms of performance and a few crazy new features. Oh yeah…one more thing….Amnesiac keeps getting better every time I hear it.
