Feb 15 2001

WebMages is moving over to a new server, so this site may be periodically unavailable over the next day or two. I must say that it’s been a very pleasant transition thus far.

I’ve been gearing up for Katsucon this weekend. I may not update this site much over the weekend as a result of spending a lot of time there.

It looks like the family vacation to England will have to be cut short, since Intersect doesn’t want to authorize a four-week vacation in the middle of releasing our product. Ah well. There’s a whole story there, but I really don’t have the energy to relay it right now.

Went to Friendly’s for lunch today. While the food was great (Chicken Pot Pies are one of the great culinary inventions of all time), they were having one of those Management Days, where local bigwigs were introducing themselves, and new employees were being trained, and there was a lot of hustle and bustle as people tried to look as important as possible.

This wouldn’t annoy me, except that it was going on in the middle of the restaurant. They were conducting all this business right out where other people could see and overhear. And it’s not that these meetings and greetings and explanations were loud; it was just very unprofessional of them to conduct all of this infrastructure business out where all of their customers could see and hear them. It would be like installing software on a new programmer’s PC as you have a meeting with a client.

Watched another episode of My Dear Marie last night, which is quite the enjoyable little romantic comedy. The series has a keen sense of how to tell a story; each episode has interspersed enough plot and comedy with little tidbits of sweetness to keep me thoroughly entertained. And the character designs are just lovely.
