Hunting

I've been quiet. Part of that is all of the _fun_ we've been having at work. (Now that we've freighted off the servers to someone else's data center, perhaps now would be a good time to figure out how we're going to support the product on their private net, hmm?) Part of that is general life craziness. Among other things, we've been looking for a new house. Actually, we've made an offer. There was a counter-offer. We spent most of the day agonizing about negotiations. Finally we accepted the counter, with one small request. But this is easily one of the most nerve-wracking things I've had to do. It doesn't help, of course, that we're looking at a down payment that is a 5-digit number an order of magnitude bigger than any check I think I've ever had to cut for anything. All that aside, it's a really nice house. I'm psyched. We're trying not to get too deep into decorating for, you know, actually _owning_ it. Pictures if they accept, and we get into the inspection period.
