- Finally get around to reading The Cryptonomicon
- Get all the Payment Gateway specs written for work, maybe even a prototype
- Finish winterizing my apartment (weather stripping, etc)
- Find a new pair of boots and get some new gloves
- Get more of my Pacific Media Expo work done
2. List five people you've lost contact with that you'd like to hear from again:
- Jenn-double-n, from WPI
- Jen Brown, from Livingston
- Jenna Steen
Um, I can't think of anyone else really.
3. List five things you'd like to learn how to do:
- Speak and read Japanese
- Computer graphics - Photoshop tricks, etc. That's my huge gap when it comes to web stuff, I know HTML, CSS, HTTP, server coding, etc. But I suck with graphics work.
- Learn SQL and general DB programming. That's the other gap I feel I have, I know a little SQL but not nearly enough. I have personal projects I want to do that I know should be on a DB, but I lack the skillz at this time.
- Advanced metal working. This kind of goes with my 'dream home' thing. Some people like wood working as a hobby - I like working in metal. I'd like to learn more so someday I can have a little home forge to do casting, milling, etc. But I'd have to win that lottery to afford all the gear. :-)
- Something artistic, like graphic arts, music, etc.
4. List five things you'd do if you won the lottery (no limit):
- Well, the obvious - pay off all my debts
- Design my own home (architecture was my backup career choice) and have it built.
- Setup z_gryphon - pay off his debts, get him setup with his home, and some kind of trust so he can live. So he can focus on finding a life to make himself happy instead of just surviving.
- Fund GweepNet so it can get any hardware it needs, dedicated high speed line (without relying on The Dumb Company), etc.
- Maybe get more degrees, but at least go and take college course that were interesting but that I didn't have time for. Some programming classes, more history classes, maybe some hard sciences.
5. List five things you do that help you relax:
- Surf the net
- Watch TiVo
- Listen to music
