Counting Down

It's now one week until my office closes and I start working from home. I'd already packed two boxes of seldom-used references, but there's a lot of stuff that just can't be broken down until the last minute.

Today, I ceremonially packed up all the personal stuff from my desk, the breakable items not so much wrapped as enmeshed in bubble wrap. That box will spend some time in storage in the basement, at least until I find out whether I'll eventually find a place where I can work from that isn't home that's closer than a 90 minute commute from my house.

To the first approximation, that's being voted on next Thursday, when the Sun shareholders vote on whether not to accept Oracle's offer. After that, if the acquisition goes through, there's some possibility of jumping to Sun's Itasca office.

We'll see how it goes.
