Some Blog problems

I just upgrades to the new version of Movable Type (ver 3.2) unfortunately there is a problem in rebuilding the archive indexes. Hopefully, I don’t lose everything.

Always seems to be a problem when upgrading versions



update: Problem is solved – unsure why – but making this post after the upgrade seemed to eliminate many if not all of the problems.

Drywall almost completed

I apologize for the large gap in entries. I think the last entry has the framing completed. A great deal of work has taken place in the last 4-6 weeks. The plumbing was roughed in (including jack hammering concrete floor to install the toilet’s drain). The electrical was then completed. Then came the dry-walling. As you can see by the photos below – the drywall is hung and the sanding and mudding is just about finish.

This is where the screen will be. 100″ Stewart screen. The projector will be mounted near the top right of this photo

Paint has been selected along with tile and carpeting. The painting should start later this week, hopefully tile next week and carpeting and installation of the cabinets the week after.

The whole project is probably about 4 weeks from completion.

Stay tuned!

Wow – first post in over 1 month

Its almost the end of August and this is my first post of the month. What has happened? Hard to say. I guess I have been busy and not been able to get an update. Work has been very busy. Our summer associates left about 2-3 weeks ago. The first years arrive next Tuesday and recruiting season has just started for next year’s summer and entering classes. I am starting my 8th year at the firm. WOW – eight years – sometimes it seems like it was only a few months ago that we entered the building for the first time. But most of the time it feels like it has been twenty years.

Had lunch today with Helana – we are two of the three remaining associates of the entering class of 1998. There were 13 of us. We had difficulty remembering all 13 but with each person there were vivid memories of both good times and some times bad times. Wow – senior associate and hopefully this will be the last year as an associate.

College Football starts thursday night. The Buckeyes look like they could win another Big Ten championship and possibly more. Louisville probably won’t lose a game all season long.

The basement project continues – I’ll post a separate entry with more details.

Hopefully, I’ll post more in the days.
