Week One

So I just finished my first week at CollabNet, and man has it been cool.

I keep having these moments where I'll just have hit send on an email to the Subversion dev list, and I think to myself "ok, now I need to get some real work done", and then it occurs to me that sending that email was part of my real work ;-)

In more mundane news, I've managed to come to an understanding with whatever deity is in charge of the Bay Area commute, and now my morning and afternoon drive time has settled down to about 45 minutes each way. That isn't really all that bad, especially when you consider that it's 45 minutes of actual driving, as opposed to an hour of stop and go hell, which is what I was dealing with at the beginning of the week before I figured out the magical series of roads that would let me avoid taking 101 all the way up the penninsula.

Anyway, I'm off to the east coast for the weekend. Tomorrow is Psi U's 3-3, and everyone knows I just can't pass up an opportunity to spend 12 hours at a party after 6 or 7 hours on a plane. Also notable about this trip is that I'm actually leaving my laptop at home. I can't recall the last time I flew without one, but for once I'm actually not in danger of getting paged at 3 in the morning and having to drop everything to fix some problem. It's a nice feeling.
