Work for the county was pretty keen on the first day - nice folks there. Help desk duties are pretty simple and straightforward - image laptops, XP transitioning, phone and online support, so far.

On the second day, it was primarily imaging desktops and laptops for the police department, punctuated by telephone help-desk stuff... all very straightforward.

I like the people I work with, ad would enjoy a full-time gig with that crew. I'm pleasantly surprised to see an even mix of the sexes, with some marrieds... very different than the all guy network rooms or all female non-profit agencies.

BHK got us macaroons from the Cakery! oh, yum, yum yum. Cookie Monster knows his stuff when he claims them as his favorite cookie. when done right, they are a bit o' heaven... and those guys make 'em right.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has written an interesting essay, "Thoughts on Music",in which he explains why Apple has refused to license its FairPlay DRM scheme, and calls out to the music industry to end copy protection.Jobs also points out that the vast amount of music on iPods is DRM-unencumbered, and argues that the 3% of music on iPods which is DRM-encumbered is hardly enough to lock users into the iPod platform.

It will be interesting to see the fallout from this essay, both from the music industry (which has recently shown signs of re-thinking DRM), and the European countries like Norway, which has declared Apple's DRM illegal.

Looks like spore is still on schedule! I'm really looking forward to it.
