Birthday Times

I'm feeling super generous today, so here's two comics:






I thought I could make this update last week during my actual birthday (Wednesday), but last week was extremely looooooooong for me and Keat. Her aunt passed away last Sunday, and we traveled 480 miles across North Carolina from Waynesville to Nags Head on Tuesday, which was one of the longest trips I ever made (especially since we left after Keat's class was done at 2). Once we arrived, we crashed for the night and went to the funeral on Wednesday (which was very emotional, by the way, but I never went to a funeral on my birthday before), left for Tortuga's Lie (great seafood restaurant, and it was Sushi night, so I got some Sake!) we were all tired and left Thursday morning to drive 480 miles back to Asheville on Thursday. With the addition of the traveling from Nags Head to Columbia (NC) and back (and back to Asheville), it was close to 1000 miles in 1 week. I kept getting the notion from Keat's mom asking if I had a funeral on my birthday before. I kept saying "No, but I've had a Physics test before", and that happened about 4 times.

After we came back, our new friends in Apt #1 (Jen and Ty) invited us over to their place for beer and monopoly. That was very interesting, especially since Keat and I had about 4 beers each (which is a lot for us). We also cleaned up the apartment on Friday, which helped out a bit.

Our friend Kat invited us to Biltmore Estate on Saturday, which was very fun, but I don't want to walk around for 7 hours anymore. My legs still hurt from Saturday.......ow.

I got to work this morning at 7:45am, and still here at this hour. I finally figured out why the 3rd IP address wasn't added to my account (when I ordered it on Feb 9th) - it was because the order got stalled.....again. It seems like that is a recurring theme on my account: orders will stall and require an extra "push" from an Admin before it can successfully be processed. After getting that canceled and re-submitted, it was a fairly eventful day, with the education and installiation of the Intuit credit processing for EAUC, the status updates and video production for NSMT, the SEO Seminar preparation, and the sudden loss-of-internet for about an hour at the office (the county came over and tried to do something (I don't know what they were doing), and when they were working, the internet went out - found out about 20 minutes later that the College lost their connection, so the whole county was out for about an hour). What a day. I'm going home now to rest.....

One last thing: I found out that I'm (should be) in a book! It's called "Starting Your Career as a Freelance Web Designer" and it's available via Amazon! It is scheduled to be published in August, so I can't wait till it comes out.

I also made a logo for Zoomiform (aka: Business Accelerator) and registered the domain for it, and an official logo for Infinity.

Also, you would think that since Intuit is one of the biggest credit processing and accounting companies in the world, their online credit processing procedures would be easy. YEAH RIGHT. Unlike Sage (which NSMT used), Intuit is extremely difficult to integrate. They want you to use THEIR systems or nothing at all. So I'll be spending the next few days trying to figure out how to do that properly. I found a nice little PHP DevKit for Intuit systems, and got it to successfully return a test environment, and now have to figure out how to make it live and work with real funds. That should be fun. Night!
