Merry Christmas!

Tonight, after a couple of near misses, I finally managed to deliver to two friends their Christmas gifts for 2004. I've still got one present to go. As owlfish would say, Christmas never ends!

My officially getting re-hired at work is now only a matter of paperwork, as Steve finally, finally, finally, got permission to make some hires. Which is good, as one of the last two full-time engineers at the office is leaving tomorrow. Actually, he's moving to the design company across the hall.

I've been busy lately, with a new project that should keep me pretty much occupied for the rest of the month, and I'm also involved in one of the big, long-term projects of the company. As part of that, I now get to sit in on the weekly telephone conference, which should be lots of fun. This is a technical profession, so IMHO not much can be accomplished in meetings. Poor Steve seems to spend all this time on the phone.
