    Nice work man!

    Also Canada has been crushing it at these games.

    I grew up watching European hockey, but I just noticed I've 100% transformed into an NHL fan. Olympic size rink just looks weird and NHL rinks look normal

    I still have six months of my fixed-term contract left, but today my boss offered a permanent position with a raise (not as much as I asked for though). I didn't say yes immidiately, because of few work related things, and I'm still unsure what to do. I don't have any other options yet, but there's this feeling that grass might be greener on the other side of the fence :help:

    I always take the sure thing. You can always leave the job if you find something better.

    If there's demand in your field, check to see if the grass is greener.

    There's one project that lasts until late next year where I'm supposed to be the PM. While I could leave any day, I don't like the idea of committing into something and then leave it to others to finish if I find something that looks better. If it wasn't for this, signing new contract would be the obvious choice.

    And positive things. It's almost easter (AKA 4 day weekend) and I'll try to get the 4 days after easter free, 10 day holiday would be sweet.

    I'm seriously thinking about coming to see a game or two late this year. Cheapest airplane ticket is around 750€ in November, which is not bad.

    I will. I probably could already decide the days to get cheaper tickets and hotel, but I guess it's better to wait till they release the schedule.

    God damn I love when e-services work. It took me less than 90min to drive from work to a shopping mall near my home, get my photo taken for passport, drive home, apply and pay for the passport. Photo was automatically sent from photographer to the Police IT system, and I got a SMS code to use in my passport application, that automatically attached the photo to application.

    It's nice when services like that finally get with the times and use technology to make things easier for everyone.

    And then you come across services that refuse to adapt and it's frustrating as hell. A few years ago I applied for a resident card in Hong Kong and part of the process was an in person interview. But... I live in Canada. Can't we Skype, Facetime, or even do it over the phone? Nope. Alright fine, I'll come back for the interview then. I missed the interview because they allocated the time for me and mailed me the information, which took like 2 or 3 weeks to arrive, even though they had my email address on the application. Then I missed the rescheduled interview because of the same circumstances.

    Honestly, I blame the US. With the embargo, it's difficult for Cuban airlines to get newer planes or even part to fix the ones they do have. Until it is lifted, flying with a Cuban airline is just going to continue to get more and more dangerous.

    No, I didn't get anything from you. Last text I received from you was in February.
