What’s on the iPod?

R.E.M.

I have a few new CD’s that I haven’t actually listened to yet – but this weekend I finally took the time to rip my entire R.E.M. collection to the iPod. From 1983’s Murmur to 2004’s Around the Sun & everything in between. It’s pretty extensive, and pretty darn great too! I don’t know why I waited this long… I love this stuff! I have the whole R.E.M. library playing in random mode right now through the computer speakers at my desk. I highly recommend it!

I may not get around to listening to my new stuff for a long, long while…

Don’t forget Friday July 27th…

That’s right – it’s Systems Administrator Appreciation Day!!!

The Panel of Infamy And guess what? That’s what I am – after all, who else realizes that such a day exists, let alone that it happens on the last Friday of July?!? And after last week, I feel like I deserve a special day! The company for which I work was without internet/email access for 3 full days! (Amazing how that actually increases productivity!) I tested every little piece of our network & determined that the problem was not on our end, but with the ISP. However, that realization did not deter anyone here from asking when I was going to get it fixed. “We know there’s nothing you can do, but when are you going to do something?” And people wonder why my desk is filled with antacids & Excedrin…
