Time flying

Well today marks the end of my second week on the job as webmaster at the U of M Supercomputing Institute. Hardly seems like it's been that long. In another 12 days I'll get my first paycheck; I'm looking forward to that!

I've had quite a bit to do. Got a spanking-new MacBook Pro and Apple Cinema display for my workstation. Got a white board for my office wall. Worked with the main developer to get the website files into a Subversion (change control) repository. Made some minor edits to the web pages. Got started on converting the existing web pages into a format that more closely matches that of the rest of the University.

On the home front, things have been going reasonably well. Ericka's PCAs have been good with being reliable during this transition and the group we have now seem like they'll continue to be so as time goes on. With most of them on break from school I've had some additional free time due to being able to have someone stay with Ericka after I get home from work. Sometimes that just lets me get in some needed extra sleep but mostly it allows me to get out and do some fun things. There was the holiday party for The Source, dinner with friends for minnehaha B's birthday and several movies.

Was at work a tad early this morning so I'll check out a bit early and get a start on my three-day weekend! Classes start next Tuesday so it'll be interesting to see how the campus changes once the hordes of students descend. Still need to hook up with the many friends that are in the area for lunch and such so I hope there'll be time for that soon.
