I'm Dreaming of a Texas Christmas

Busy peopleWe just arrived in Texas to celebrate Christmas with Lisa's family. We're fortunate that our jobs are so mobile that we can largely accomplish them anywhere -- anywhere there's a wireless network anyway.

It's going to be a busy few days on the business front. I've still got a couple of days of U of M work to get done. Mainly tomorrow and half of Thursday -- after that, nothing until my last day on the third. The big stuff is happening with Cyber Data Solutions. My project with Community Housing Network is coming to a hard deadline. We've had a number of delays, so naturally things are down to the wire now. In the next ten days I will be setting up a donations facility and donor management database for them. I've got about half of the online donation interface working and I should be able to get the rest up and running by tomorrow night. My big worry is actually attaching the front end interface to the bank on the back end, so we can actually process the credit card transactions.

Add to these tasks a smattering of minor issues on other projects and the hustle and bustle of the holidays and you've got the recipe for a busy couple of weeks. Wish me luck!

So, what tasks do you have in the upcoming weeks?

13 days.

Have a great time! We'll miss you for Solstice (our busyness, plus hosting Xmas eve), but you'll be enjoying warm Texas weather and family! Enjoy!

Tell everyone we send a "Very Merry Christmas!!!" their way.

Don't let your father-in-law trick you into drinking any of that good nog while you're trying to get your work done. Never drink and program!
