Life Update

Well it's been almost two months since I last updated this blog. I guess now is as good a time as any to make an update.


I started an internship doing IT work at Brooklet Elementary School, and it's going very well so far. They're talking about hiring me to do some contract work after my internship ends! Hopefully it will eventually lead to a full-time position, but if not, at least I can make some money for the holidays and it's another thing I can put on a resume.


I'm still working on my archive of America Online member areas, and I found a couple neat areas just the other day. AOL is changing some mail settings today and AOL Instant Messenger is going away on December 14th, so it will be interesting to see what happens with the old AOL service. I hope it sticks around so I can keep discovering more abandonded areas, but there is less of a reason for me to use the AOL software with the instant messaging going away. I liked having my e-mail and IMs all in one place (even though AIM is pretty empty these days). Here's a little preview of what will be in the AOL Archive:


AOL Road Trips

My ThinkPad 600 is finally running Windows 95, after a long process trying to get the drivers installed. The PC card drivers wouldn't "stick" until I reinstalled Windows and set everything up in a certain order. Installing the PC card drivers after everything else caused them do disappear after a reboot, for whatever reason. I also got another dev server, since the one I had been using bit the dust.


So yeah, that's what's been going on here. Lots of new and exciting things. Oh, and don't forget to check out my newest section, nick99nack's CD Universe!
