Randomness

I got mail from Earthlink saying that they are going to stop forwarding mail from my old Netcom account, but that I could pay $22/month to keep the forwarding in place if I wanted to. Ha! Considering that about 95% of the spam I get on my Yahoo account is forwards from the Netcom address, well, let's just say that they can't stop forwarding that junk soon enough. Here is to a spam-free New Year! *raises glass*

Actually, it is with a small amount of nostalgia that I let that account go. I've been reachable at that Netcom account for nearly ten years now. It's hard to believe, but I first got that account back in '93, when Netcom was one of the few ISPs out there. Wow... it's kind of disconcerting to realize how much time has passed since then.

It also makes me realize how long I've known some of my friends. Again, wow.

On a completely unrelated note, one of the tracks on the Spirited Away soundtrack has a main melodic theme that is identical to one of the main themes from the Harry Potter movies. It's a little disconcerting to have these two stories mentally mix.

Only a half day at work today. It's still a half a day too much. But at least it looks like the boss who massively pissed me off yesterday is not going to bother showing her face today. (Not my new direct report -- he's still cool.) This is good in a way, since I don't have to deal with her, and I have time to put together a report demonstrating that perhaps next time she might want to get some facts under her belt before accusing her employees of slacking on the job. Unfortunately, she also owes me money. Humph.
