some updates

I’ve had a busy week so far and there is no sign of it letting up. Neither of my offers on condos were accepted, with a scoff by both owners. I can’t say I expected anything else (although I hoped for a different result); now I am emotionally distant and I can resume my search more pragmatically. I spent quite a bit of time with the realtor, Linda, on Sunday – some of it was just goofing around in her office. I offerred to write her a piece of software to send ‘hot spot’ deals to her phone via text message instead of having to manually check the web page. If I do it, and its a hit, maybe she can sell it to other realtors. ;P I’ve been speaking quite a bit with a gentelman named Jay. He is a potential hosting customer, a potential SuSE student, and a potential project pal. He’s just entering the Linux world and I can tell he is terrified. Most of that fear he will have to overcome himself. I imagine I will have something similiar to face when I head towards academia. Eriko has tenatively picked a date for the wedding – July 17th, 2005. On to work.
