Employees are cool! (My half-day in billables...)

Spent the first half of the day on technically billable, but effectively unbillable material (because it bills against future sales of a client corporation). After that switched to real billables. Luckily, I have a new employee who spent the whole day on billables... just makes me feel better to know that someone's making money.

Good People at Home

It struck me
Sitting in the caffe

Good first day at the "office" (Linux Caffe is a good place to work so far...)

Spent the day at Linux Caffe training Seneca on the VoIP project. Went well. I only wound up having 7 drinks in total, for about $20. Given that wireless access alone often costs $7/hr (and we were there 8.25 hrs) a good deal.
