I'm fairly sure my brain has lost 10lb. of ugly fat in the past week! Talk about a mental workout!
Two days in San Antonio, three days Austin, teleconferences via my cell phone while on the bus, teleconferences on the laptop, source code, hardware, IDEs, setting up a small firmware development lab in my room..
IT'S A BLAST!!!!!
Payday on October 7th., this will put me in excellent shape, let me pay back Anne her bridge oan and pay this months rent, but a desk, chair, and coffeemaker, a few small things around the house, and funds for travel. PLUS - open a savings account!! I'm going to move money online from checking to savings, so bank visits in person will be limited to getting money for large cash purchases (and I might even find way round that).
In the meantime, I'm learning a ton about 802.11 wireless. IT's pretty wild stuff, and very different from what I usually deal with, so it's going to be my "learn a new skill" thing for this year.
Still in shock from it all, though. Literally from total hopelessness to top of the world in a few days. Definitely going to be some partying when that first check arrives!
