Looking Back

Man, I don’t even remember exactly when this took place. Two weekends ago? September 29 was when I moved, I think. Anymore, time is really hazy to me. At the very least, I thought I’d post a few pics from the move and the subsequent work-week craziness.

Right after the move, we had to migrate about 15 sites over to new servers. We were pulling some late nights, and one all-nighter (which, all things considered, ain’t all that bad).


Living room, somewhat cleared out.


Kitchen, not quite so cleared out.


Alex, Justin and Matt – taking a break from moving my crap.

Matt, guarding my precious 15" monitor and my copy of "Scattegories" from would-be thieves.

New living room!

Justin, Alex and Matt take a break on the new porch. Er, on the slanty new porch, rather.


I met this dog the next day, friendly as ever. In this pic, he’s taking a whiz. I keep wanting to call him Baxter for some reason, and I keep forgetting his name. Something -field. Maxfield? Chesterfield? Each time we meet, I have to recheck his tags to figure out what his name is.

So begins the all-nighter. Justin, working away.


My desk, circa 2 AM.


Long hours mean lotsa trash. I’m not one for energy drinks, but Q101 has a ton because of promtional stuff. Been drinking AMP like it’s water.


Ben, Justin and I take a break around 6 AM to go see the sunrise. We figure we’re allowed a small break.


We wandered over to "The View from Above the Earth" exibit. Lingered for a while, watching the photographs and the day break.


I feel sorta like how Speccy must feel, when he’s demolishing and devouring cities. :D


Ben and Justin contenplate Chicago architecture.


This is as close as I could get to the orange of the morning sun. Took me a few shots before I got it right.


Justin, studying the world, as always.


Back in the office – Ben, chugging away.


Matt, working the database end.


Almost two days later, I’m back at home. A bit stunned, a bit woozy, and ready for sleep. But not too tired to grab this pic of the sun setting on North Avenue.
