OK, so really, I meant to have this update on Thanksgiving, but circumstances (which should become apparent as you read this update) caused me to have to delay my readers another juicy update. So, without further ado, I present: Thanksgiving: The Update.
So, TG, that wonderful time of the year where you get together with your family and enjoy a fine meal of Turkey an dressing (or if you’re weird, lobster) and maybe watch some football (that would be of the American variety).
That’s pretty much how my TG was, except for one tiny little change in the plot: I was sick. And I’m not talking about the runny nose-only sick. I’m talking about the full-blown headache, runny nose, sore-coughing throat, man-it-really-sucks sick. And it wasn’t just one day of the break. It started about Monday evening, but didn’t really pick up until about Tuesday night — just in time for the TG Holiday, I might add. It lasted the entire break (even now, I’m not feeling 100%). So my break = suck.
So, if any of my family members from my mom’s side of the family gets sick, I’m sorry (we went and ate there on TG, we had already had TG with my dad’s side last Sunday, as I suppose that’s the only time we could all get together). If I had the choice, I would have not been sick on TG, thus causing you to get my infections.
Then, the second major cause of my delays occurred, and that was the moving the blog to a more semi-permanent home, which you are currently viewing. I did some extra tweaks to this version, and I must say, it really turned out how I wanted it. I was mainly looking for a way to have a WordPress-like way of perma-links, so instead of having http://galador.eastforums.com/node/1 , it is now something like http://galador.eastforums.com/archive/2006/nov/26-another-new-blog-sheesh . Longer? Sure, but now you can see my posts by year or month, and I think those kind of perma-links look much nicer.
So, I apologize for the delay, but I think it cause my blog to come out even better than ever. And I actually did an update, so you can’t really complain all that much.
As a side note, I think I’m going to change my major. (The world exclusive announcement, right here on mah blog!) I’ve been thinking about it over the break, and programming is just not for me. I thought it would be fun, but I just don’t enjoy it. I can do it, but I get no sense of accomplishment in it. Not like I do than, say, setting up a new OS or a new server, and it finally working how I like it. So, based on my thoughts (scary huh?), I believe I’ m going to change my major to Computer Information Systems.
To tell the truth, that’s probably what I should have started out doing, but either I didn’t realize that it was offered here or (more likely), I just didn’t think about the possibility of doing it. I thought that Computer Science was going to be the way for me, but it turned out that that was not the case. I think programming would be something I would want to do on my own time, not something that I would be forced to do when my company has a new client with X features and Y days to do it in. That kind of pressure is not for me.
So there you have it folks. Not only an update, but a world-exclusive announcement straight from the horse’s mouth. Enjoy that food for though, and hopefully it won’t give you any indigestion.
