What have you learned today?

I found out that Stan wears a size 14 shoe. Stan is a pretty cool cat.

I learned that women are finally making sense: My wife begged me to ask for more overtime to get more money, then she complains when I have to go in early to work the overtime.

I found out that what I packed for lunch wasn't enough. Put too many miles on the bike this morning for that to cut it. Crap, now I'm going to need to get a snack or crash.

Honey flavor or nothin'.

I learned that VMware Server 2 can be engineered to take VNC connections to the VMs themselves, thus sparing me endless hours of dealing with its craptacular web-based management interface and console.

I also learned that 3 chocolate-chocolate chip muffins and 3 travel mugs of decaf (sorry, I'm an unleaded man) will fix any mood-related issues.

I (re)learned how to bring Excel file UTM data into ArcMap and export it to a shapefile. I haven't done that for a long time. When I did do that last it was on an older version of ArcMap, so now it's all different.

So now I have a point shapefile, but it's off by 60m. I checked the datum of everything. Since I didn't collect the data I'm just waiting for the project manager to decide what she wants me to do with it. I vote for editing it.

I've learned that 3-4 lanes of pure ice and taking a turn can be extremely fun. And that I have more confidence in my ice nagivation skills than everybody has

I learned that using the phrase "If you're so certain I'm wrong, then why did you call us for technical support?" is a quick way to piss someone off.

Lol it was so funny. Last night when there was no ice and it was just wet. That was when all the accidents happened. like 5-7 accidents on wet (non iced/non snowed) roads between around Las Vegas Trail and Ridgemar Mall/Lockheed, all in various stages as I drove by.

I learned today that shoveling snow is not fun, nor is cleaning showers or wood floors. I want to live in a self cleaning world, that is what I learned.
