Almost there...

Tuesday, February 13, 2001

I started work at Stanford yesterday. I have a sneaking suspicion this may be the job of my dreams. I may have finally found a niche in the world. At least, that's what I'm hoping.

First, the cool just keeps getting cooler. The desktop system they dropped on my desk yesterday is a P3, 1 Ghz Dell. Ooohhh, ahhhh. Massive computing power....

Second, this place just feels right. There are so many areas to explore here and it's a nice encouraging place to go exploring.

Today I took my Peoplesoft Basics class. Peoplesoft looks very straightforward from a user perspective. I was afraid it might be a nasty scary program, but it's got a reasonably effective user interface and it behaves with in the way you would expect it to as someone who has used other Windows programs. This is a huge relief to me. First, it makes learning it easier. Second, it makes teaching it much much easier.

In other news, word has it that the new line-up for Tempest, my favorite band to see live, is better than Tempest has been in years. They've got a new guitarist and a new fiddle player who both get great reviews. Check out their tour schedule for upcoming shows in your area.
