Silverdragon still isn't up (at the time I wrote this). Brad told me that the major delays were installing a 128k line directly to his new house. We're looking at the end of the month for uptime.

After the previous adoption fiasco, and we knew we were ready to adopt, we have actively pursued adopting a little girl. Right now, we're going to an adoption class, and we have to finish the classes (they end in March), have a homestudy, and the start the paperwork. We're still testing the waters, so to speak, but we're committed.

Next week, I'm in Dallas (Texas that is), which I haven't visited since my Cargo days. Over the years, I have kind of grown fond of Texas. The people seem nice, and I have had nothing but positive experiences there. I have been to Austin, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Bandera. But don't expect me to wear a cowboy hat and boots anytime soon, I hate getting "hat-head" (with oily hair) and the sound of me walking in boots sounds like a 400lb SS Officer. Why am I in Dallas? My company is sending me there for some more training in Aspect programming. Trying to get approval took almost two months. I hate bureaucracy, and getting approval took so long that getting airline tickets a week before your flight? Can we say, "400% overpriced?" I knew that you could. I'll be staying in a Radisson Suites, too. I haven't been to one of those since I went to some job seminar in the early 90's.
