    Talking *bumph*

    Ummmm. Hey everyone.

    I'm alive. Busy. Stressed. But happy.


    The biggest thing to hit the fan for me is that my wife and I are relocating from Sudbury, ON back to Toronto. We got the news of the relocation back in March. So it's been a mad dash to:

    find a home in Toronto (we took posession yesterday! 40 y.o. side-split)
    sell our house in Sudbury
    do repairs
    see lawyers
    see bankers
    coordinate movers (moving stuff from Sudbury to Toronto on May 19th)
    buy home improvement supplies (Home Depot knows where I live now)
    change addresses
    secure a phone line
    get net access
    ...



    Now I'm no longer working from home like I was in Sudbury. I make the daily bump & grind on the subway from uptown Toronto to downtown.

    My job has changed a bit too. I've got a new project manager who's a bit more anal and more rigid (hmm... not a good choice of words there ) than my last boss. It's keeping me on the staight and narrow. But the plus side is that I'm learning some much needed CSS/XHTML/PHP/MySQL/Apache skills. I maybe have about 2 more years of life left in my software career.

    Then there's the reviews that I write fairly regularly for PCPer. Averaging about 1 review every 3 weeks. Takes me a lot longer to do these articles than Ryan... LOL Got a new article coming up next week sometime assuming my new house stuff doesn't get in the way. Of course, this doesn't count the editing I do for Ryan. :grin:

    So somehow I have to figure out a time to finish HL2, and play GuildWars. Such a sad life! LOL :grin:

    How's everyone?

    - Jon.

    PS. I probably won't be gaming much these days, but I'll try to drop in to post at least once a day.

    So... no more Guild Wars? It's retail. Did you buy it?

    Good to see you around. Or course... I almost get as much guff as you do these days for being away.

    Jim! I saw Hitchhiker's Guide on opening day and I suddenly understood every inside joke you ever cracked! Man, it was a revelation. 42. Bahahaha...
