Another week…

Well, things have pretty much returned to normal around here, for the most part. I’m back at my desk, listening to stuff on iTunes, waiting for support requests to come in via email and/or the phone. Most of my coworkers have come back to work, and life goes on.

It’s actually a bit of a relief, in a way. It’s just been a bit off the past week or so. Even yesterday felt that way; then again, I had arranged with my boss that I would be working from home because I wasn’t sure whether or not I’d be able to get gas. I did get some around lunchtime, after Mom told me the Shell station at the entrance to my neighborhood was serving customers. I wasn’t really missed per se, as my laptop was on the corporate VPN and my office phone was forwarded to my cell phone. I was able to get work done without any issues. It’s just… it feels more like work now that I’m back in my office. Weird as it might be to say, at least everything seems to be back on the straight and narrow.

Oh, Louie called me last night… turns out he didn’t get out of town after all. He got as far as Conroe before giving up and heading back to his apartment. Just as well… he got less effects from the hurricane than I did. Heh.

At this point now, the big thing I have to look forward to is Fight Night. For those of you not aware of it, Fight Night is MK Online’s series of chats with celebrities in the world of Mortal Kombat. The next Fight Night chat is Monday, and it’s with the development team of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. I don’t mind saying, it’s going to be a strain… I’m the one who has to maintain the technical side of things while Scott Howell hosts the event and handles the questions from the fans, plus does the main interaction with the team. Usually after Fight Nights I end up taking a month leave of absence from the site, as the strain gets to me and I need to take a break. I guess I should look on the bright side… ]{0MBAT would have had to have taken my place had Hurricane Rita made me unavailable for the event, and the way he was worrying over it, he would have had a coronary by the time the night was over. :-)

Anyway, I’ll probably have a post a bit later concerning servers and related matters, so unless you don’t mind my tech talk feel free to pass that one up. For now, I need to go get my retractable network cable from Anderson (who I let borrow it when I left Villahermosa)… fun fun.
