God bless our legal system, that's what I say! As I'm reading the ticket last night I notice that my court date is for 10am. So I figure I'll go in around 9:30... Well I read down a little farther and it says "or earlier." So I got there around 8:25 so that I could hurry on to work later. I walk in and talk to the clerk. She asks if I have current insurance as well as my new registration. So I hand her the appropriate paperwork, she photocopies them, hands the papers back to me and sends me on my way. $493 wavied in 2 minutes. I was literally in building 2 maybe 3 minutes! So I got work at 8:35 and I was still here before the people that get here at 8:30 :)
Apparently LiveJournal was down all day, that's pretty nuts. Let's see, what happened today. We had a big meeting at work discussing all the various projects we should be working on next year. There are a LOT of things in there, and it all amounts to a massive amount of money to get them all done. Justin hit on a very good point, at our company we have a tendency to just toss money at a problem. Big, stronger, faster, and ultimately more expensive. Well that's probably not always the solution. In the IT world though, it's a good way around a lot of problems. Anyway I got a pretty kick ass free lunch out of the meeting and a little bit more direction as well. We'll see how things go. We have a lot of big plans, but us having a new boss/structure in the next couple weeks or months could mess a lot of them up. Exciting stuff!
