Lazin' on a Sunday

Really should be doing the Journalism homework right now, but instead headed to I, Robot with T from MN. Earlier this week we attened the Letterman taping with Will Smith as the guest, hocking his new flick, so it is only right and natural we go check out said flick. Been reading few entertaining blogs lately, notably Illuminated Donkey and Pussy Ranch, inspiring me to pick up the torch again and try to write something every day. Things have been pretty sparse around the ole Samology for a while, been pretty busy. The main article of business concerns work, where the $200,000 proposal I submitted to administration actually went through a couple months ago. The hospital where I work is not exactly reknowned for doling out the cash so this was a bit of a surprise, not to mention ego boost. This means new software for me and all my workmates and, more importantly; new servers! The servers, 2 dual processor Dell 2600's with oodles of RAM, arrived last Monday and I have been in pig heaven ever since. The best part is they are mine, all mine!, I get to configure security and networking and domain controller stuff, etc., to my own tailored liking. Also I have been working on the data migration from old system to new. It's a reverse engineering job; take our old data, figure out where it fits in the new back end. Our software vendor says it has never been done before- this is like a direct challenge for me to figure out a way to do it. After 3 days of on-and-off work I have all our patient demographics loaded, with admission and discharge statistics. remaining hurdles are accounts receivable and visit activity... Should be a cinch! My computer says I am "running low on credit," computer cafe in Times Square...

I'm pretty sure that was the only time I have ever been mentioned in the same sentence as Pussy Ranch.
