Voyager 1 is leaving the system!

Yes, it has finally happened! Voyager 1, launched in 1977, has finally left the Solar System.
Voyager 1


So basically, what took us 35 years to do will take us a matter of seconds in the 24th century (using Okuda's Light Speed calculations based on the conversion of light years)

SPAAAAAAAAACE Bar

I was browsing my reader a few minutes ago, and saw this:
SPAAAAAAAAACE Bar


Which, of course, made me want to see the ending to Portal 2.......again.


And that referenced to this video, which is slightly annoying, but still fun to watch.

Secret Code

Pearls

The above comic reminds me of this clip from Spaceballs:


With this week looking up so far, I am looking up for what the rest of the week has to offer. My to-do list has been slowly shortening, which is always a benefit. I sent a potential client a quote, which is looking very positive from our new sales person. Also, our Site Analysis process is working well since it helps reduce the amount of work needed to complete a Site Analysis.

I had a major overhaul of server security this morning, with many of the 404's and IP's from the weekend. That took a while, but I think it should work a lot better against server attacks.

We were planning on launching a client's site today, and it may go as planned if everything goes well. It's a little different then what we originally planned, but C'est la vie.

We were also contacted by Fox News for a spotlight location on their home page. A very inciting offer, but I contacted Dr. Hughes to see what his opinion was. We should have a decision by tomorrow whether to accept it (which is a benefit to us, and great market exposure), or deny (which although would be a bad decision, would save our money).

I am also working on a mobile version of the PiLam site which should be easier to load on mobile devices. I thought it would be better since it is getting a lot more traffic, and the new year just started (and loading the "Brothers" list on a mobile device takes a while). I did accidentally cause a minor server outage (less than 5 minutes) while adding the mobile subdomain, but it was fixed. Apparently, Apache decided that it wanted port 80 and wasn't giving it up no matter what. I had to almost go all TRON on the server and kill the process myself, but I didn't have to since I could kill -9 it.

Keat starts school today, so she is officially a Catamount (again). She had Japanese class today, and when she talked to Sensei, he said that I owe him some money. Apparently, I owe him $1 trillion. Where he got that number, I have no idea.

Since Keat started school, I thought this comic would be appropriate and I wish I thought of it first:

Bachelor for a Week - Day 5 - Almost Over

PvP

Keep in mind that the above comic has to deal with the Ren. Fair(e). I thought it was appropriate since I'm watching Voyager and active in the SCA.

Anyway, this week is over and I've defiantly surpassed 40 hours this week. The server says I logged on this morning at 9:57, so up to now, I've been working about 7.5 hours. Add that to my current work load, and I've worked 42.5 hours. Not bad for a week of Bachelor-ism.

Keat comes home tomorrow (YAY) and my Bachelor-ism will be over. I can't say it's been all great. The majority of the week has been: get up, go to work, come home, watch some tv, go to bed (+10 points if you can get that reference). Literally, I've gotten up (usually around 9), arrived at work around 10-ish, worked all day, went home, watch a movie (and feed the kitties), and went to bed. That was my week in a nutshell.

ANYWAY, I worked on the WHCC page a lot today, and should have that up by Monday as promised. I also worked on the Shadow Dev Beta site again, and things are coming along nicely. I should be able to meet that September 1st deadline with no problems.

I had a meeting with WHCC early this morning to go over some documents, and had the cleaning lady come in after that. Let's just say that what she did (and her daughter) in 20 minutes would have taken me a whole day to do in the office. $15 for a thorough cleaning is well worth it. She even offered to dust and more, but I thought I'd better start off small since this is her first time. She will definitely be back in 2 weeks!


I'm going to call it quits early today and head home to take care of some of the chores that I was supposed to do over the week. I did a few of them, but I have a lot to go. Good thing I don't have any Lumbergs around!

Although I did watch Dinner for Schmucks last night. Some people may have thought it was bad, but once you accept that it is "Steve Carrell"-funny, then it makes more sense. Overall, with the amount of comedy, dirty-ness, follow-through storyline, and cast of actors (including Jeff Dunham), it was a really good movie.

I've also watched: Mortal Kombat Annihilation (crap), Star Trek Nemesis (ok, but I'm starting to like it better once I got past the "Data died" part), Star Trek Insurrection (eh...), and The Karate Kid (yes, the 1984 version - I finally saw it all the way through and it was pretty good).

I'm gonna go home and work now....wait, what? Oh well.

And just for kicks, here's another Star Trek related comic:
