Back in town...

Yes friends, I've been working out of town. In Memphis, TN. For the last two months. 400 miles west. Not home. Leaving out at 6:30 AM on Monday, and not arriving back again until 9:30 PM Friday. The Hotel had only intermittent interweb connectivity, and that was only in the lobby. I have never felt more information starved in all my life.

Luckily, I've completed my task out there, and am now back in a position where I can sleep in my own bed at night. (Yes Tammi, I finally got the new box, and you were right. It's much better now.) This job is 2 hours up the road, and in a coal mine of all places, but I get to come Home! No more trying to cram a week's worth of home life into two days. Gone are the times where I stay up late to cram my gulliver with as much info as I can... to stave off the hard times. Away with the crappy hotel rooms, and the constant lack of human attention/interaction, then playing catch-up.

All I had to do was, attempt to learn an archaic electronic system, with nothing more than intuition and a set of schematics. Apply a modern (by comparison) system to this old thing, to get the functionality of a new machine. Do it all with little support, and a helper that knows less than I do (whom I'm supposed to teach what I'm doing, as I do it, and learn it myself.).

Yes Eric, Some people are THAT busy. Much Love Bro. I'll be down, when I get the time... roughly 2010, I'm thinkin'.
