Don't forget the lunar eclipse tomorrow night. It starts at 2043 EST and lasts until 0009 with peak at 2226. I think the sky will be clear here tomorrow and looking forward to that. Right now the moon is incredibly bright. You can definitely walk around outside without a flashlight right now. I need to find a good place to watch it and will try a few photos.

Thanks to a tip off from btalkworld, Toshiba (makers of HD-DVD) surrendered today to Blu-ray--wow. I did not expect that so soon, but I'm very glad they realized it and decided to not keep fighting the movement towards Blu-ray and better technology. I do feel bad for those that invested in HD-DVD already.

The new boss is still working out really well so far. We get along pretty well, enjoys our office humor and is asking some really good questions. There will be many, many more new questions as there is still a huge amount of knowledge I need to dump into his brain. Two days now and he's already looking at processes and how we can improve things. I think my former boss (now my boss' boss) expressed how well this was working and it was very unique. How often do you start a new job, get trained by the person who's been doing that job for several years and the replacement is more than happy to be replaced. Quite a unique opportunity.

The end of HD-DVD was the talk of the office today. One of our systems analysts had a player, but he's taking it well. He's already referring to it as an "expensive upconverter for the bedroom". I'm glad I held off a couple of months back.

I am thrilled to hear how well things are going for you at work with the new boss! It sounds like the makings for some positive changes within your department.

Have a great night!

Photo from near the top of the WUNC-TV tower looking down towards the ground. Was taken years ago when I was doing some work on the CAP repeater equipment. I think that's at about 1000', but can't remember now.
