Home again, Home again, tiddle-lee-dee

"Well, I'm back" --Sam Gamgee

The trip to Charlotte was a success on any measurable level: we accomplished our goals, at least as well as can reasonably be expected.

I got to work with a new acquaintance who'd probably have been promoted to "friend" if I hadn't met him as I was leaving. He's a Solaris guru and a shell scripting genius, so I learned a lot. In return, I was able to share some Perl-fu. I was flattered when he told someone, "I thought I knew Perl until I worked with Ox."

But the high point was certainly seeing Ames and the kids again.

So I'm home, the new job starts Monday, and I'm very happy to be home.

"Home is not where you live, but where they understand you."

Isn't it nice to come home again?
