New office digs

I got a great birthday present from my boss: A new cubicle in the office where I've been working for the last five years. It's larger, but more importantly it's in a different part of the office, affording me somewhat more privacy. It's no private room with a door, but about the best I can expect here in my current role. (I also recently got a big raise, so I'm in no hurry to try to move up in the hierarchy.)

Also, today was the first day of the year that it's been warm enough to take a lunchtime nap on my favorite bench in the courtyard. Yay sun.

LibraryThing growing pains

LibraryThing, that book cataloging site I've been hyping, had a bad crash coupled with a backup failure. As a consequence, all of my catalog was lost. Fortunately, 1) most of my books are still in the import queue (though all of my tags are lost); 2) all of my books are still on my local computer in Delicious Library (good thing I decided to keep using it); and 3) I get a full membership refund or free membership for my inconvenience. Gotta respect that "beta" label...
