Richmond's Own (but unowned) Website

 
 
That's supposed to be like one of those "before and after" titles - though I had to cheat with the word birthday.

Today was a pretty fun day. Got some info on the website job, and started playing around a bit with the admin stuff, learning how to do some different functions, and finding some problems that I need to bring up with some people. Getting some additional (and more formal) training tomorrow.

Also got to see an old high school friend today – had lunch over around Hong Kong Plaza (had a chicken steak) (and lasted quite a while!) and got some cold drinks. It was a lot of fun, and a great opportunity to catch up and talk and spend time with him. Talked about summer experiences, went for a ride (with me singing my 80s songs), passed by Rincon. It was great, glad I had the opportunity to do that.

Not a whole lot more to my day, so a new feature for you today!

My news roundup for the day:

Dow Jones plunges over 500 points – I got a text on this via CNN’s Twitter account – at first I thought it was a typo, then I heard it on news radio. Scary news.  - http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/money_co/2011/08/stock-markets-plunge-in-worst-day-since-depths-of-financial-crisis-.html

FAA shutdown will be coming to an end – yay! Feeling much better about flying to school now. - http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/congress-agrees-on-stopgap-for-faa-workers/2011/08/04/gIQA9n7uuI_story.html

NASA had a big announcement at 2pm EST today (according to their tweet this morning), liquid water may have been discovered on Mars! - http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/05/science/space/05mars.html (sorry if this is using up one of your 20 articles per month on NYTimes)
