So, me and a few others in my unit were tasked with redesigning one of our computer networks from the ground up.  The front office thinks it can be done for less than $40k.  

I just finished putting together the PowerPoint presentation they want us to use to explain what we need and what it will cost, and the total cost (to do it right) is just shy of 6x the amount they think it will cost.

Server + workstations + licensing + software = $239,375

So, I had the shock/thrill of a lifetime the other day. Ok well...maybe not lifetime, but certainly the week at the very least. I have the Google+ mobile app on my droid phone. One afternoon I get a notification that I have a Google+ notification.

So far that's not out of the ordinary, in so much as I know a total of 6 people who are on Google+ and only really know 3 of them. The other 3 are celebrities that I follow on twitter and have enjoyed the show(s) they'e worked on (+Wil Wheaton , +Felicia Day , +Robert Llewellyn ).

So, to continue, I tap-tap-tap on my phone to see what the notification is all about. I am expecting that there is a post about ComiCon or some other nerdly item waiting for me. I look at the notification and just stared at it for, seriously, about 10 minutes. It said:

+Robert Llewellyn has added you to a Circle

I was shocked. One of the Celebs that I was following added me to a circle. He wouldn't know me if he ran me over during one of his "Car Pool" segments.

When my brain finally re-engaged, the first though that crossed my mind was
"Well, spin my nipple-nuts and send me to Alaska"

The next one was: "How awesome is this!"

Now, I understand that, in the Beta stage of G+, finding people and adding them to circles is like "hitting another random living person in a Dystopian, zombie-decimated city with a bowling ball while blind-folded"
(meaning, any connection, even with a random stranger from across the pond is welcome)

Even still, Kryten added me to a Circle. The thought still makes me giddy.

So, to +Robert Llewellyn , Thank you for adding me. I am a big fan. And I still will be even after you read one of my inane posts and decide to de-circle, or un-circle, or circle-with-a-line-through-it, me. But, until then, Cheers!

Seriously?? it's not even 8:30 and I want to choke the holy hell out of people. For one day, I wish the universe would not inundate me with morons.

Sitting in a hotel room with the family in Lancaster, trying to use their WiFi to ftp files from my server to my laptop to a clients server. Show of hands, who thinks this gets more than 25% done?

I just tethered my Droid to my laptop and the speed increase is at least 600% faster. Ok so that might be an exadgeration, but not by much
