The Dilemma

As the week progresses, the problem is going to get worse. I may have to start making things up, and lying. And really, people are just trying to be polite, but they don’t know how awkward it is. And enough people know that Conny View definition in a new window is here that it’s hard to avoid The Question: “So, what did you do last night?”

“Umm.” I’ll say. “We had a quiet night. Had some dinner at home…” I’ll smile innocently.

The other person will blink, and I can almost see it on their face: “She comes all the way across the Atlantic, and you keep her locked up at home?”

I’ll try to elaborate. “It was nice.” Another innocent smile.

“Oh, sounds nice. Got any plans for the week while she is here?”

Now I’m really in trouble. Do I mention the T.E.S. meetings so they know we get out? Probably shouldn’t. “We’re going to see Blue Man Group next week.”

“That should be fun.”

“Yeah. We’re looking forward to it.”

“Dull bugger,” they will think.

But I’ll have a big smile on my face. Oh, do I have plans for her…

Server Severed

The Alchera server is being moved to a new home. Because of problems with the old provider, it seems sensible to try to gain some ground with this current outage. Soon the server will be at a new provider (improvement #1) and completely rebuilt (improvement #2). The rebuild will give us a chance to get in all the optimizations and security tweaks that we’ve been wanting to do for some time. After that, we’ll address the player file fix to get people back to where they were before the last failure. I know everyone hates the outage, and we’re all itching to get it back up. At least when it comes up next time, we’ll be in a much better situation.

“Good Morning…”

There are perils to being around a woman who wakes up early when you’re a heavy sleeper. Especially when that woman has mischief on her mind… Next time I will hide the rope before I go to sleep.
