Well … did some emergency surgery on BOB yesterday :p I got the Favorite site selection grid changed and did some UI changes while I was at it as well. It looks better now (hopefully ….) and will not be as confusing to somebody who’s trying to use it – again hopefully <g> So how come I haven’t put up a new build? Well, the new build is up there – invisibly – but I’m waiting to see if Daniel has any problems with it before I make a general announcement. Anyway, since not many people seem to use BOB, I don’t think it matters that much :-) But if you can’t live without the latest version of BOB, let me know and I’ll send you the download link … It should actually work pretty fine since I used the latest version to upload the new build of BOB to all my servers and it went off without a hitch but you never know …

On other news, today is my last day at work. I came in loaded for bear since my exit interview had not been scheduled even after repeated queries to HR. I was going to wait till noon and then e-mail the guy responsible for setting up the exit interview a scathing e-mail with CC’s to everybody from the VP in charge of the IT department down to my boss and his boss <vbg> but the guy finally responded yesterday after I left work – darn! :p I’m kinda looking forward to spending two weeks at home without having to get up early in the morning, drive for an hour or more dealing with early morning traffic and of course, the snow … Maybe I’ll get some coding done as well but I mostly want to catch up on my movies, games, books etc. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a vacation where I could just kick back and relax – even the trip home to Sri Lanka in October was kinda hectic since I had to do a lot of travelling, visiting relatives etc. So I’m looking forward to this …

I’ve been thinking lately of putting up a PayPal donations link on this site … Not that that many of my users have volunteered to donate anything <g> except of course for those generous souls who are listed on my Hall of Fame but what with the move to Sri Lanka and the resultant decrease in funds due to the drastic difference in exchange rates, I might be in a position where I’d welcome anything I can get :p I’ve always been reluctant to even ask for donations and stuff because to me it seems to be just a step below asking for payment up front but I guess beggars can’t be choosers :p Guess I’ll have to just wait and see which direction I go with that one …
