LDAP Presentation (Thursday, July 22, 2004)

I would swear that I had something interesting to say, but now, I can't remember what it was. Today was fun — I got to present my LDAP technical specification to a fairly large audience, and to my amazement, it was very well received. I had been lacking some confidence recently, mainly due to the fact that I haven't actually done any new development in three years, but it looks like I haven't lost my touch — all I need to do now, is pull off the implementation and I'll be all set.

I also managed to straighten up some of the mess that is our source control system, and did other general house keeping stuff. Work is feeling good. Speaking of work, I got a stock option statement today, which basically tells me that if webMethods can ever reach and maintain any level of profitability, I'll be a very happy camper. Unfortunately, I think reaching any level of profitability is going to require intervention from Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. I just need to stay optimistic... I won't even graduate from college for another year and a half. The word is patience. Lots of patience.

After work and a fine dinner at Chili's, we watched some Friends, and then I went to racquetball. My father and I stood Matt and John. We won the first time games by a large margin, but then my father was exhausted and we managed to let the last game slip away 17 to 15. Still, it felt good to be back on the court running around. I had some pretty amazing shots, but on the other hand, I let some stuff slip away. But after over two weeks off, it's not bad. I'm not going to be able to play next week, but after that, I should be back to regular play, and I can re-attain my finely tuned racquetball machine.

There's some other stuff on my mind, but it's after one in the morning, and I can't see straight, so I guess I'll head to bed, and answer the pressing questions of the universe another time. Good night.
