It was a busy day today (fun new Vox goodness notwithstanding)
With big goings on at work and groceries (with the fun that goes hand in hand there) it was a reasonably busy day.
Got to sit down and pore over a 120 meg packet capture, it’s not the biggest I’ve had to run through (3 Gigs) but the info I was looking for was right at the end and I learned a new filtering technique for plain text protocols [contains TEXT] after that it was easier to find what I was looking for (thank goodness)
I must have driven my co-worker insane with so many calls (after hours no less) giving him feedback on what I found.
To top it all off, it was PAYDAY!!!! Another chunk of time comes up where I can try and not spend money. Which I am terrible at doing.
Argh, I read.
Now, this is no real revelation for you, this is a textual media after all, reading is fundamental here. What I mean is I don’t read enough, not even close. I always have a book or two on the go and can claim that I can read 3-4 novels in a week (on top of way too many comics) but I’ve gone so long without a non-fiction book that I might actually scream.
I’m looking forward to reading “What would a Patriot Do?” and “Imaginary Weapons” but they always seem to be in the future. When I’m reading, I’m probably not writing, which confounds me further as I would like to finish my current work and go on. It is an embarrassment of choice I tell you.
Add to all of this the fact that I’m back on WoW (for my wife) and I have no time any more (or it seems like it) I wonder if I could convince myself to read in bed again? I used to all the time.
