    Moving Up In The ABW World
    Weird how some things really get me excited. The other day I was thrilled to figure out how to create multiple PDF's dynamically and then zip those files to send them to the user. And that was topped today when I saw that my status has changed from "newbie" to "member" on ABW.

    I just feel bad for my wife who has to listen to a computer geek go on about such accomplishments ("Yes dear, that's wonderful, and I'm happy for you. Could you take out the trash now?")

    I know how ya feel man. Nothing like figuring out something really cool and not having anyone who understands to brag to.

    I'd have disagreed a week ago, but now that I'm a member of the elite circle...

    ummm . . . not quite, but get the jacket. You'll get more respect at home while on the keyboard. (hey, we do have a nice logo around here someplace)

    My wife is incredibly supportive. Some days I feel really bad for her though. Most of the males in her life are involved in computers in one way or another (both my brother-in-law's are IT guys), so she gets the talk a lot. She smiles and laughs, and doesn't complain if the money comes in, so I couldn't ask for anything more. But I do feel bad when we're with HER family and she's the one left out of the conversations... I think this is about what she hears:

    OK, so maybe I'm not quite elite. Maybe I'm actually just above pathetic. But I can live with that...

    Yep, and if you play your cards right, someday you could even end up as president of the student council, valedictorian, captain of the football team, or just all round "board Bif"!!!

    Congratulations on your new signature & PM privilege CB. I know how you feel, still remember it well.

    Now, will you please take the trash out!!

    Best - Alan
