Where to start... I went out to the Berkshires Wednesday night for Thanksgiving dinner with distant family. Thursday night I went up to Saratoga Springs (or thereabouts) to visit with Wayne Larmon of Scrounge.Org fame. That part of the country is very beautiful. I forget how small New England is. I was able to traverse New York, skirt Vermont, and cover the entire length of Massachusetts in a few hours of driving. Saturday I hiked around Cambridge. I went to MIT and took pictures of the Great Hall. I especially liked the names of great scientists and philosophers carved in the granite facades. I was drawn by the name Darwin in big letters (pictures forthcoming) and thought that if MIT were in the South, the Xtians would have burned down the building - despite the fact that it's made of solid stone. I then went to the theater in Kendall Square and caught Quills (a must-see if you have the chance). It was great to see a first-run indie film. Cambridge has no fewer than five theaters that specialize in indie films. It was alot a combination of downtown San Francisco combined with Silicon Valley, all within easy access of the subway. Too bad is so damned cold up here! I went to the MIT Museum after the movie. Really cool stuff, especially the Hack Hall of Fame. They actually had the reassembled car that was put up on the dome of the Great Hall in 1994.

I won't mention the openning bid, but if you want 'in' on a move to Atlanta I will say it's well over six figures... Fidelity changed the position they are interviewed me for from internal security consultant to security architect... Slight difference in pay scales...
