I hear money is the new black.

Almost forgot to mention this: Pam zerbie got a part-time job, and J-J meterbridge got a rockin' contract-to-hire gig that pays really well. I'm happy about this, because our extensive field research on the subject of "How long can three geeks in various states of (non-)employment maintain their lifestyle and still make rent on their apartment?" was rapidly coming to a conclusion, the conclusion being "Not very much longer."

I actually feel like a developer this week. At work, I've been playing with wget so that we can have local copies of our websites on a CD for our salespeople to demo. (The websites normally don't work without lots of server-side glue). I've almost got it, with wget --convert-links --html-extension --restrict-file-names="windows" -r. The only problem is that the embedded .wmv files (*twitch*) aren't picked up by default. I don't know if there's any good way to do that, and I don't know if it's worth it anyway since we're switching to a new video format soon. Ooh, and today I wrote something that used a two-dimensional array. The last time I used one of those was maybe sophomore year.
