Yesterday was Thanksgiving, or Turkey day as some are calling it, here in the good old, US of A.
Thanksgiving, I believe, is a holiday that celebrates the harvest times of old, which, given that it is the middle of winter, would probably be a good thing back in the 1500’s, but I digress…
I’ve been working in and around the web development industry since early 2001. I was a Computer Science student at Waikato University, in Hamilton, New Zealand. One day, a friend of mine, who happened to be a freelance web developer and designer asked me if I wanted to do a small PHP job for him. He was well versed in ASP and didn’t feel like learning a new language for what would probably be a one off PHP project and he knew I was already comfortable with C++, so the learning curver for me would be much lower. He offered me $400 for my part in the project and being a student, I said “HELL YEAH!” I haven’t looked back since.
So last night was the first snow fall over Hazard, KY. It was kind surreal actually. We went bowling at about 7pm, as is the norm for a Thursday night (178,167,177 for a 522 series. For anyone who cares) and it was barely dusting on the way over. It was snowing enough that you could like, catch it or whatever, but not enough to wanna go play in it.
