Moved to Dallas

I moved to Dallas last month!  It's been an interesting transition as I begin "real life."  Someone asked me if I felt different now that I was done with school and would be working full time.  What's funny is it really doesn't feel that different.  But I have a feeling that's all about to change soon.  Things really haven't been that different up until now.  When I was in school, I would come back to Dallas to visit friends over the winter break and I was working 20-30 hours at Circuit City while going to school full time (15 hours).

But things are starting to change.  Everyone has started going back to school at A&M, Oklahoma, UT, etc… and I'm still here.  Laura is going home this weekend and I'll be left here without many of my friends around.  I've been working full-time in my new career.  Although the hours aren't much difference than school+work, the actual work is completely different.  Instead of selling TV's and other electronics, I'm now working as a Business Analyst for a global manufacturing company.  The coolest part is, I'll be traveling around the world. 

The company is sending me on my first trip to SPAIN!  I'll be there for a month, so it should be pretty exciting.  I need to get a new digital camera so I can take pictures and upload them to my website.  I've uploaded a few albums as a sample, but I plan on uploading more pictures as I go.

PS. I'm living in Grapevine, just north of Grapevine Mills Mall and I'm working in Las Colinas (Irving).

flamingcube – back online

Our sister site, flamingcube.com, has finally been restored. The data was lost during a transition from one host to another and the most recent backup was corrupt.

An old home-directory backup was found, allowing us to save most of the files. However, a recent database backup could not be recovered. The site had not seen many updates (to the DB) recently, so it wasn't that big of an issue. An older copy of the database was found and flamingcube was restored to it's normal self.

The forums have been locked down due to a recent outbreak in phpBB script attacks to the version currently being used on the site. flamingcube.com will now serve as a reference version of the old site.

Check out the site: http://www.flamingcube.com

I really need to update the site to the new phpBB forums, as a new hack has been released for the version I have on the site. I think I may just take the site offline temporarily and forward the URL to this site.
