Yay Me. I did it, again!

Well, after months of learning, studying and taking practice exams, I am now officially a Citrix Certified Administrator for Citrix Presentation Server 4.

What that means to you non IT people ... it's a professional certification that will help me in both my job hunt and ability to command a better than average salary. Citrix is cool stuff that helps save time and money on software and hardware by leveraging applications on servers versus installing them on every single desktop or laptop. Basically, your company of 100 people could share 50 licensed copies of Microsoft Office, rather than having to purchase a copy of Office for all 100 people.

Anyways ... now that I'm back in school (again) ... and working into 300 and 400 level classes, perhaps I'll finally finish that elusive Bachelor's Degree I want. Eventually

Learning is delicious.


Finally ...

I'm no longer on call. That was a shitty three weeks.

As of 5 p.m. today, I'm on vacation the rest of the week.

Yay me.


I've done it.

I've successfully transferred my crazy magnet.

Using the finest crazy magnet transfer process known to mankind, I've gotten rid of the crazy magnet I picked up sometime in late 2006.

It was a weird year. Thankfully, it's over.

(Sorry Katrina. Your turn.)


Romantic? Yes. Genius? No.

Eric, when it comes to love or money, you're a Hopeless Romantic

For richer? For poorer? It doesn't matter to you because you're the Hopeless Romantic. Whether your sweetie is an oil baron or a grease monkey, it's all about until death do us part. Even if you haven't met "the one," you'll judge your soul mate by the love letters, roses, and foot massages — not the size of their bankroll. And even if their wallet is as fat as their sonnet collection, the toughest part of your relationship will be arguing over which charity to choose, who loves whom more, and who's the bigger Schmoopie. And if that diamond ring turns brass, no biggie — your love is totally not-for-profit.

Congratulations, Eric! Your IQ score is

This number is based on a scientific formula that compares how many questions you answered correctly on the Classic IQ Test relative to others.

Song of the Day

The Habit

Watershed (written by Colin Gawel and Joe Oestreich)

I've got to stop drinking beer to fall asleep
taking pills with coffee to wake up.
I've got to stop hitting on your friends
and hoping you ain't lookin'

Breaking the habit.
Man I've got to stop it
Breaking the habit
before the habit it breaks me

I've got to stop getting news on the net
paranoia with destroy ya
I've got to stop tripping on the curb
walking home after midnight

Breaking the habit.
Man I've got to stop it
Breaking the habit
before the habit it breaks me

I've got to stop staring at the screen
that picture it ain't gonna kiss me
I've got to stop feeling sorry for myself
cause you don't ever call

Breaking the habit.
Man I've got to stop it
Breaking the habit
before the habit it breaks me

Watershed is out on tour. I'll be in Cleveland on the 10th, Columbus on the 11th and Toledo on the 12th.

Join me and rock out to the best band you've probably never heard of.
