So the fellow who's being moved off of our project was -- among other things -- responsible for setting up the data for currency translation. Since he's in Sunnyvale for the week being trained on his new product, guess who just volunteered to try to fix this mess?

Fit Test

tarkrai will be happy to hear that Ford Five Hundreds have arrived at the dealership, which means I should be taking a test drive by tomorrow. I'll probably still have to order one, but progress is being made.

Stories With Happy Endings

Ok, now let me start by prefacing this with the statement that I have no way of knowing if this story is actually true. But I got it from Marty Burke who got it from this website. And if you look down the linked page past the "Rathergate" discussion, you'll find an amusing letter from a fellow who decided that having one campaign sign stolen from his lawn was quite enough, thank you very much.

Overall, it was a fine triumph of American ingenuity. :)
