Finally... An Update

So, update time. I’m not even sure where to start.

Things at the college are getting crazy, and not just because the semester is about to start. We’re undergoing a major change of administration and a lot of people have lost their jobs. Those of us who are left, are left with their jobs to do as well as our own.

I’m 99% certain that the college is going to announce that we will have to begin paying for a portion of our health insurance. It’s always been provided to us for free. I’ve actually expected this for the past couple of years. We got a rather cryptic email late Friday that there would be a meeting Tuesday to discuss “new health care options”.

With everything that’s going on, I’ve decided to leave The Two Cents. It was interesting to have the chance to try something new but in the end, I would rather be able to do things in my own time and retain creative control over my own work. (As a side note, if you guys want me continue the Mythbusters and CSI: Miami reviews, I will. But I’d rather do them here at my own blog where I can retain ownership and don’t have to worry about adding a recap of the episodes.)

On to some positive news…

After having my Droid phone for a month, I finally decided to sit down and go through the user’s manual. Yeah, I know. But I usually like to figure things out for myself, so sue me. Anyway, this thing is frakking amazing. I cannot believe all of the stuff it can do, way too much to list here. I finally have it all set up and I swear, I now have a complete computing system, gps, weather station, recording studio… in my pocket.

With my seasonal internet issues rearing their head again, I love my 3g iPad even more now. I’ve been able to keep up with things online while I’m at home even while my modem craps out during the day.

And finally, some pimping for one of my favorite Tweeps. Phil Plait, aka Bad Astronomer, author of Death From The Skies, has a new show premiering on the Discovery Channel Sunday, August 29th at 10 pm called Bad Universe. Everyone should watch this show because Phil is just awesome.

I loved to see your reviews on Mythbusters and Miami.

I hope things at work settle down at some point.
