We are working on getting their new forums HERE set up - but we have to get the content from the old forums moved over - that is of much importance. If for some reason we cannot do that we will just move back to the old forums and just work from there. Anyway, not trying to hijack the Christmas thread guys - nothing to see here... move on now
Merry Christmas guys - been spending much time with family so I haven't been near the PC much. Also doesn't help that I got a 360 and a bunch of DS games.
Luckily I've got the week off to geek out and play crazy amounts of games! Hope you all had a great holiday. Here's looking forward to '06 with new forums, an Invs and Katapila release for NUON and hopefully some more suprises from DragonShadow, Drooly Cat (Jason) and others!
They aren't cutting my responsibilities or interjecting in my management abilities or anything, it's just stupid shit that comes up. And they don't exactly have people lining up for my job, there's not that many people applying for the positions I hire
All of these things will end happily, they're just stressful. And I still lack many good friends that I can go to, and the ones I can are preoccupied with similar things. Thus general chit chat, cuz for some reason TH and Ghan and Tom all actively keep it up.
Just gotta keep Miss Mazie up through the week until her shock wears off and she realizes that she still has family all around her, and bossman will do whatever he's going to do and I'll respond appropriately when it happens. Thank you all for the support, I do very much appreciate everyone being here for me through the years
I gotten a teaching position for Biology in a college in Wuhan (yes, there)... I suppose it should be fine there (I hope). Many of my ex colleagues are teaching in China as well currently (none in Wuhan though)
a few weeks ago, one of my friends basically said "jonas, I received an invitation to submit something to conference X but I'm too lazy to do it and also the conference isn't advanced enough for my high level of research*, why don't you write something? Oh by the way, the deadline is in two weeks. Enjoy!" so I got two 80 hour weeks out of that kind offer. (*of course he didn't say those parts, but it's a better story this way)
