No, the monkey isn't dead. Just really, really bussy for the last year or so.
New job, new girl, new town...
...and I forgot my password(s) (damn, I'm such a n00b).
I don't have a whole lot of free time right now - so much is going on in my new job as a contractor, life has really changed (mostly for the better). I now make over twice as much money as I did in my last job - confirming my opinion that contractors are paid properly and full-time employees are just slaves to the system.
Anyway, I'll post again soon.
