Recently, I had an idea. Part of this idea was spurred by our most recent electric bill, which was predictably higher than usual due the air conditioner running. But another part of this idea was a yearning for elegance and flexibility.
Recently, we purchased a new MacBook for Mandy to use for law school, which she will be starting this Fall. And as a bonus to that purchase (part of Apple’s Back-To-School promotion), we were eligible for a free 8GB iPod Touch (after a $229 rebate) or an equal discount toward a more expensive model.
Those who know me may have found the recent spike in my visibility on the Internet to be surprising. I’ve traditionally been the type of person to let months pass between blog posts or leave my away message for AIM to be “sleeping” for weeks at a time. And until recently, my Facebook status was left blank.
Well, today confirmed what I had feared, namely that PerceptIS (the company for which I currently work) did not get their contract renewed to continue providing service to Case Western Reserve University. My employment with PerceptIS will last until July 31st, at which time I will hopfully have found another job either at Case or somewhere else.
