Not that I trust Dell after their recent rip off (See yesterday’s post), but they have a good deal posted today on an XBOX 360. This one isn’t too good to be true, so its probably OK, but who knows, they may cancel these after the fact too. A brand new 360 for $180 isn’t too bad as they’re normally $200 (for the arcade anyway). Check here for the deal:
Anyway, on to news. I haven’t been posting much lately since I started school about 4 months ago. Between working full time and going to school I don’t have half the time that I used to. I’m starting to get used to the amount of work now, so its not as bad. Really had to get used to budgeting my time, as most nights after work I have quite a bit of homework to do. Despite all that, I pulled an A in my first class (Contexts for Contemporary Business) and just got a 97% A on my final for Business Stats, so will def have an A in that class as well. Its good to be off to a great start in school, thats for sure.
There is other news that I couldn’t really talk much about earlier, but can write about it now that its out in the open. After being at ESET for 3 years, I’ve finally moved on and took a new job. Starting in January, I’ll be working at Defenseweb, a government defense contractor. I took a Project Liason position working with a project manager on using Second Life for military families and training. Should be a really cool experience, and I’m definitely stoked to see what I learn in this new position. Kind of scary to be completely changing my career after 3 years of CRM administration and management, but I’m excited to get into something new and see where it takes me! Will still definitely recommend ESET and their products 100% because there really isn’t a better Antivirus solution than NOD32. I’ve never really been a fan of software firewalls and security suites, although our Smart Security isn’t too bad.
As I’m sitting here watching Gremlins I’m enjoying our huge 10′ tall Christmas tree that we put in the living room. Also, on unrelated technology nerd note – I got the HTC Hero running Android, and let me say that it is the best phone I have ever had. Destroys the iPhone for sure. Google really wen all out on this one, and I’ve always liked HTC products.
Well thats pretty much the update…I’m heading out to Superstition tomorrow with Evan, Kralovic, and some other friends. I had Kjo’s dad do a valve job and full maintenance on my CRF 450, and evan just picked up a street plated dual sport KTM EXC40o, and Aaron is grabbing Cam’s bike and were hookin up a trailer and pulling a Rhino out with us. Should be a fun day in the dunes, and I’m hoping to throw my truck in 4wd and see how she handles off road too!
A couple more days at work next week, exit interview on Thursday morning, then heading back up to the 909 for an awesome Christmas with the family, and my grandparents out here from Jenks, OK. Can’t wait. Also, recently met a girl from OK (Broken Arrow I think? Near Jenks apparently)…but that’s a story for another day…
