10 hours a day, 7 days a week right now at work. No time for much blogging, and not much to say that doesn't have to do with Unix, servers, or CPU modules.
Just popping in to let my blogger pals know I am still around.
Starting tomorrow, it will be 12 hours a day for a while. Loving the OT, though.
Need a haircut, too.

There is also much speculation and likelihood that the Icon of pro wrestling, The Nature Boy, Ric Flair, will be ending his phenomenal career this year. He is 58 years old and still mixes it up with the best.
I cannot remember a time when Ric Flair was not in my life. As far back as I can recall, Ric Flair was there, either on my TV or at Columbia's Township Auditorium. The sense of loss I feel at the thought of him being anything but a wrestler cannot be described here. Furthermore, to try and encapsulate the 35 year career of this man in my humble blog would be an impossible task. I have the chance to see him live, for the first time since I was 15 years old, on March 24th. It may very well be the last time I will see him in this way. I am excited about it, but also profoundly sad.
Maybe the impending retirements of two of my heroes serve to remind me that I am not 15 anymore. Nevertheless, I am thankful for these two men and how they have both entertained and motivated me through their colorful careers.
