You can't be anal retentive if you don't have an anus!

What is it about the first hour of any given work day? I get more done in the first 60 minutes of work than I do most of the rest of the day. I guess it's because you come in and there are like 10,000 things waiting to get done so you do them as quick as possible. :)

On a side note, my parents are fricking loud. I probably slept better at my appartmentm even with the loud alarm clock. Between my dad getting up at 5am to go to work, and my mom yelling at the cat. I sleep like crap. I demand utter silence! You must all be quiet while I sleep! I need my own house!

I'm going to whale on my pecs and then do my back

Today was pretty interesting at work. Got some more stuff done on the router I hosed up, and started moving some other things around. About 12:00pm the PenguinComputing guys showed up. They were in town, and since we bought some equipment from them they took us (me and Isaac) out to lunch. We showed them around and talked before heading over to Jarboe's to grab some lunch. They seemed like pretty nice guys, very smart. Good company overall, I'm very impressed. Huge linux advocates. It was pretty funny to hear them talk. According to them Linux is the end all cure all for all the worlds ailments :) It was a good lunch though.

Afterwards Isaac and I put together a bigger server from some old pieces we had laying around. Took some effort but it's working. We bent one of the rails so I'm not sure what to do about that. I was pretty proud of Isaac for not dropping this server though. Overall a decent day.
