I can’t remember the last time I was this active with this site. After creating a form for people to use so that they can e-mail me, I learned that there is another way to set it up so it looks better in the user’s browser. I started playing around with this, but I haven’t decided if I want to activate it now or wait until the new site is up.
Meanwhile, work continues on the new site as I continue to migrate articles. It’s not going as well as I expected, due to formatting issues. I was considering getting the new site up and running soon, but a new position and other timing may delay me to later this year or early next year.
My coworkers put together a going-away party for me today. I was really happy to see many people show up from around the Department. Many of them provided food and great conversation. I also received a great card, signed by everyone in my office, and a gift card for Best Buy. Then there was the barnyard animal toys as a gag gift… it was cute. My former supervisor suggested that I purchase ESPN NFL 2K5 for the Xbox, since it’s really exciting and it costs about $30 less than Madden NFL 2005. I’m still debating, but I may follow his recommendation (I’ve added to my Xbox page). At any rate, I really will miss working with such a great group of people, and I am grateful that I was given this opportunity to get my feet wet in public service. The skills I learned will continue to help me as I keep working for the state.
Finally, I made some updates to my Computer Security article. With the release of Windows XP Service Pack 2, I felt that I had to give Microsoft some credit for diligently testing and releasing a host of security updates that will hopefully benefit everyone that downloads and uses them.
