    I am now 115 days into my Dutch studies and just took a progress quiz. So, here's a little report for @macaronus and @Eeyore and anyone else that might be interested. Note that the "out of 5.0" is based on the whole course (which I am little over half way through). So the progress quizzes evaluate based on the whole course, not just what I've learned so far.

    Learning some new electronics today. Since my new computer is compatible with more wireless devices, I indulged in an electronic die-cutting machine (called a Cricut). This model will draw with markers, as well as cut through paper, cardstock or fabric. But learning how to do an intricate combination of drawing & cuts took some doing. Here is an example;

    Goed gedaan, jochie! :happy096:
    [well done, matey!]


    • No parking for flamingoes?
    • Ban on flamongo assemblies?

    Either way: cool! :cool:

    "That could be worse" ?

    That would be the literal translation ... it's a case of Dutch understatement.

    When a Dutch guy (especially from the Northern or Eastern provinces) says "dat kon minder" then he's giving you a thumbs up :)

    TSD is acting weird today. I can't always get past the homepage... actually, since last night.

    aargh. I screweded up today. I've been working on an important powershell script to import multiple new users into Active directory. Well, on the first pass, it didn't run as expected, so I asked one of the level 2 techs to delete the 2 accounts it created.

    Only, one of those accounts was a pre-existing account, not created by my script.

    ugh. So now there's been some locking down of privileges on the server, and I'm sure there will be a follow up with a review of procedure, etc. kree-himiny.

    Flamongos? Nope, I just hunt flamingos.
    I went out for a brief shoot today. It's excruciatingly hot & humid, so I just shot 6 ends (36 arrows, in all) I have an outdoor tournament coming up, so I needed some outdoor practice. It was kept short, by design, but I'm exhausted!

    When in doubt: sudo rm -rf /

    And be done with it. :eek:

    (note to anyone curious enough to try that.. DO NOT DO IT... you will erase your entire hard drive)

    lradke and doggone it, people like me

    Today was the first really good day in a VERY long time! I just met with the owner of the company I was looking to get a future position with, and the meeting went way better than I could have hoped!

    Looks like things are finally lining up for me! Today is a good day!! :)
