Know how I said I got promoted? Yeah, forget I ever said that.

Apparently my company's HR rep didn't talk to my manager about this promotion thing. My boss was like "err...I kinda need him where he is," and that was that. Ms. HR apologized.

And I was so excited, too. Grr.

On the plus side, looks like I'm going to be the guy running the store's new DVD Cafe - NBC recently bought Universal and is installing a cafe for people to preview movies and eat snacks before they buy 'em. It also looks like the computer's running this software are Unix-based. Who wants to bet on how long it'll take me to figure out the system's root password?

(because I can, that's why).

every company needs a hacker-type. I'm not one, but I'm probably about as close as they're going to get in this retail outfit.
