Well, between the company security measures and livejournal, most of my posts from yesterday were eaten. One of them was quite long and involved, kind of a summary of life. And the e-mails that I sent to myself didn't show up either, so somewhere along the way, something is eating my communications.

I think I'm getting a cold. Bill was sick earlier-- something that he caught from his trip to Boston-- and I've been sinking farther into snot-and-achy territory for the last couple of days. And I can't afford the downtime. A couple of weeks from now I can crash, but right now I have too much to do in a very short period of time.

My friend Floyd is leaving. Floyd is the only other guy that was a champion of software process, and doing things like requirements corectly. He is also one to call a spade a spade, and does not shy away from making corrections to management when they are wrong. Which makes him quite a Good Thing in my book, and a Pain in the Ass to the management here.
He has decided that having to wage a continual war is not something that he wants to continue in his career. I wish him the best of luck, though I doubt he will need it.

My friend Rakesh has found a new job, so Yay Rakesh! He will be going to Memphis Tennesee to work for FedEx on embedded systems there.

But this also means that two of my friends are leaving.
