Well, it only took 7 freaking hours and three people

…but I finally have a VMPlayer image that has

  • Lotus Notes installed and reading my mail instead of somebody else’s
  • Visio installed and working
  • Access to files on the host box (using SMB mounts instead of Shared Folders)
  • Access to the network printers

Now maybe I can finish that functional spec.

Woo hoo!

My contract got extended. Only for 6 months this time, but man that’s a load off my mind.

I hate this holiday brinksmanship. I bet nothing sucks worse than getting told your contract won’t be renewed the week before Christmas.
