In case you've actually noticed that there's two of me in here, this one is my good ol' consumer-level Google account, and the other one is my new-fangly Google Apps for Domains account. I'll be moving all of me from here to there, so feel free to look for me there (https://plus.google.com/u/1/110495846578754230087) if you feel so led ...

Bob (the "school kitty") and Shannon were already in place, doing school.  Weebl decided he wanted to get in on it as well. What happened to cats being graceful?

Have said something on other venues, but not here yet, so here goes. After 15 years with Duke OIT CDSS, I've left my Technical Lead position there and have just started as an Security Analyst with the Duke IT Security Office. Yay!

hm. I did not see "Thank you, Artem" anywhere in that announcement. Not that I need one, but you know it wouldn't hurt. Unlike a laptop bag "accidentally" dropped on your 5-finger toe.
Actually, I'm happy for you, Richard,  ITSO and Duke, keep it secure, man!

So, it's kinda late to start saying anything, but I more-or-less participated in "No-shave November" this year by bringing back my mutton chops from this past Feb/March. I've now officially signed up at Movember.com and am asking you, my family and friends, to make a donation to promote men's health and to help me decide when to shave them off! When you donate at my profile, leave a note saying whether they should stay beyond the end of November, or whether they should go as soon as possible. In the unlikely event of a tie, the side with the biggest average donation will win. Not sure which way I would vote right now, so I can use the help deciding. Thanks!

Happy birthday, +Jeremy Bandini! It kills me that you split while I was out on vacation. I owe you (at least) a beer.
