Damn it, that was prescient. Still, on a high note, as of just a few seconds ago I can fly a helicopter in a flight sim! You may be thinking that's the ultimate in geekiness, and, well, it is. It's also, however, damn difficult, and I would have given up long since were I not being paid to continue.
Some other stuff happened over the last month or so, but it barely came close to this for spiritual well-being.
