There's no 'I' in Gargamel's Cat

I'm spending this week in Israel, in The Company's Tel Aviv office, doing some ninja work on Analytics production -- a bunch of stuff gets done out of here, and I'm helping out the nice people here to keep their services stable and non-annoying. I'm on the 26th floor of a giant office building, and the view is amazing.

Tel Aviv beats my record for "Furthest east on a traditional world map", the previous record held by Dubrovnik. I don't get to do a lot of touristing this time, but they're at least threatening to bring me to Caesarea later in the week. I also get to possibly walk around and see Jaffa/Yafo on friday.

Didn't bring a more beefy camera than the Nexus One, so only a handful of photos this time.

Now You're Square, Part Deux

It's getting to be toward the end of the year, time to resurrect the old monolith.

I've been considering moving to Wordpress, but wordpress is far too annoying to set up, and I realise that most people read/skim via RSS and don't care about delivery mechanisms. It's like putting letters you write to your bank manager in lovely scented paper envelopes you made yourself.

I've been doing a lot of travel recently, most recently to Seattle (again) and Italy. Was also going to be going to Lisbon, but got my annual dose of brain mush right before. I'm heading to Tel Aviv next week, Barcelona with a Nice Lady in November, and Seattle in November too. I'm personally responsible for crying icebergs.

I'm not going to pretend like I'm going to update this more often, but let's just say I'd like to. I'm feeling a little more like I'd like to remember some of this stuff, and we won't have USA assorted biscuit tins full of B&W negatives in 2050.
