Today was the day…for the past week or so I’ve been sooo close to 190, even hitting it a couple times. I wanted to make sure I was really there, so I decided to wait before taking that major step of shaving off my goatee. I am after all an IT geek and what’s an IT geek without a goatee?
Anyway, I’ve actually be at 188 for the last couple of days so, for the first time in many, many years, I am clean shaven. All I can say is….WTF was I thinking!
the pushups / crunches / flutterkicks are going great. I’m feeling better every day. good stuff.

it feels so good to be busy again. While I can’t discuss the details of the project I’m working on for Pillar, I can say I’m having a lot of fun.
The project is a nice change of pace from things I’ve worked on in the past. I’m focused on the back-end and middle-tier which is where I love to be. We have a couple guys focused on the UI (one of them is also helping me with the middle-tier).
On top of the new project, a friend and I spent this past Tuesday/Wednesday in Chicago. We hit the Vista/Office 2007 launch event at McCormick Place. It was cool to get the free copy of Office 2007 Pro, but I find the launch events pretty boring. Hours of marketing fluff…ugh. Gimme a CodeMash or Code Camp any day.
