It's not a holiday here, but this Thursty-day is.
I'm going to work though--if I work holidays I can
have the same number of days as chosen vacation days.
It's not too hard to choose between a useless mid-week
holiday and an extra day for going somewhere.
I did not plan to 'work' over the holiday, but because I am the current
sysadmin until my two weeks are over, I was called because the network
went down and the workaholics who were in were upset...sheesh.
Over the weekend I did spend time learning more about Apache and CGI and
DBM. I also practiced manipulating Hashes of Hashes. That was fun mind
bending. The biggest benefit to this job is the laptop I get to use that I
fdisk'd Windows off of for Linux and use to learn at home...
I spent the weekend and part of Monday upstate (I'm in Indiana,
so that means near lake Michigan) at a hotel/resort/spa with
my wife. Three days of doing nothing, thinking nothing, just
relaxing and having a good time. I had my Palm VII with me so
I could check urgent email (none), check Slashdot and get
a wine recommendation for dinner :-) (I need to write a PQA
to read Perlmonks from the Palm VII).
All in all, a really nice weekend. Too bad I have so much work
accumulated that now it's after midnight, and I'm still here.
This week is going to be though.
