First, I would like to give a shout-out to everyone who has been keeping on top of their commitments for E2 Secret Santa 2003. It is a lot of work for all concerned, but when I have people who are keeping me updated, and actually sending their gifts, it makes life just so much easier.

There have been a lot of changes going on in my life. Within 8 weeks I will be married, have moved my fiancee\wife to North Carolina, and will be either looking for or starting a new job up there as well. Everything here I will leave behind and begin again.

Oddly enough, I have a good feeling about this. I've always wanted to be in the mountains, and this is a great opportunity. Though leaving a *very* secure job to find another one in today's IT market is a little scary.

Luckily nothing will be changing here for me - if anything perhaps I will have more time to write some more.

Happy Halloween everyone!
