February 7, 2003

Well, much has passed since the last update, but here's what I know:

  • Our troupe at the Sub-Section Competition in Montevideo (1 Feb) got a pretty respectable 4th place. I was somewhat disappointed in the judging at the competition. I'm not saying the shows that won didn't deserve to win (because they were very good), but on a point-distribution scale, it seemed very apparent that the judges this year clearly found it easier to give a comedy show a higher rating than anything not-comedic.
  • My server box (for the home network) died. Yeah, that sucked. Badly. Hard Drive failure. I've managed to get it back up and running. It's providing at least the routing that I need. Also some other basic services that I had before. Still needs to be reconfigured, but it's working at some length.
  • Life is finally calming down. I'm done doing the general manager stuff at Subway now until the next time she goes on vacation. School stuff is still going on, but...that's a work-in-progress. And right now I'm just taking over for sidewalk snow removal around the three buildings in our neighborhood while the caretakers are out of town. One of them had to have back surgery, so I'm taking over the basic stuff outside until they get back. He won't be able to do much when he gets back, but at least she'll be back we'll get it all figured out then.
  • Planning out (well, that's done now, pretty much) the trip to State One-Act again. We obviously didn't make it, but after the overwhelming success of the trip last year (everyone had a really good time)...I couldn't pass it up this year. Besides, it gives me an excuse to go watch them myself. smile

I believe that's all for now. I'll add more hopefully once I get the new news system running (which won't be until after the 16th now, but...sometime soon. :)
