I should have known this would happen – it does every year. Just when I thought we were finally done with warm weather, it’s back in the 80’s again. I even heard “highs near 90” on the radio this afternoon. 90?!? Nooooooooo!!!!!!
It won’t last long, though. I think that by Saturday the high will only be in the 60’s. I may have mentioned this before, but I heard somewhere that the Farmer’s Almanac predicts a very cold winter this year (hopefully, with lots of snow to make up for getting ripped off the last two winters).
I had lunch today at Flemings Steakhouse, and it was oh-so-good. The reason for the lunch was a presentation by the investor group at Morgan Stanley, who has handled the stock options plan at my company for a number of years. With the pending acquisition, they know they are going to lose our business, so it was a “let me buy you a steak so you will remember to call me when you need financial advice” type of lunch. Hey, thanks. I’ll call you when I need some advice – maybe we can do lunch again!
Speaking of lunch, tomorrow is my second “Lunch & Learn” at work. The first one went pretty well. The topics were “Domains, Hosts, and Virtual Hosts”, and “The HTTP Protocol”. I had intended for these to be seperate sessions, and only prepared both in order to get ahead, but once I got close to it I realized that there really wasn’t enough material to cover the time given with just one topic, so I did both (they are related, anyway). Don’t get me wrong – I could probably go on about either one of these for hours, but I’m trying to keep it interesting and concise.
This week’s session will be “HTTP Cookies & Security”, as well as an overview of the architecture of the single-sign-on system we use. If that doesn’t get you excited, well… you’re just not geeky enough!
