We launched our new software today at work. This is the project that has been consuming almost all my time and energy at work (and a lot of it outside of work) for the past several months. Today went pretty well. We had to put out some fires and there’s still a lot of tweaking to do, but thankfully the whole operation didn’t come crashing down around our heads, so I’m grateful. Hope to be up to posting more regularly very soon.

In the meantime, this is a note that was tacked on to an email from my sister:

this part is from Ione–she typed it herself:

i love you
i hope you have a grate time taking out your baby
abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxy and z
love ione im 5

It’s been cheering me up for days.
