    Been having a good nosey around house sites looking at what's out there. We are going to be finally in a position to get away from renting and into somewhere that we can actually do something with. The sale of a house we own in The Netherlands goes through at the beginning of next month so we should be able to put a deposit of £60,000+ on somewhere here.

    With our combined wages being about £58k before tax, we should be able to afford somewhere pretty decent and still end up paying less than we do on rent at the moment.

    We were going to consider asking our landlords if they were willing to sell to us and stay put but the more I look around, the more I'm getting excited at the prospect of somewhere far more practical.

    Although in the other thread my post was dark I am actually quite happy with my life. I am the youngest data center technician in Chicago and got promoted in the National Guard, my woman has done nothing but loved and cared for me for who I am even showing genuine interest in making handheld game consoles together, gained custody of my little sister so now she's out of the group home. So my life is actually going quite well!

    Just got over a bug, feeling better this morning. Going to dinner tonight with some friends, 1 of which I haven't seen in 5-6 years and who I used to see regularly at school. Should be a good time!

    We managed to send a CAN message to an Arduino from a remote laptop, through LAN. One step closer to finishing our telemetry system for the Solar Car!

    Just been offered an interview for an application I thought I'd completely screwed up.

    QA Engineer for the dudes behind Little Big Planet! Just depends how many frothing at the mouth raging fanboys I'm up against I guess. Still soon I might be back working in the industry I love.

    Nervous but looking forward to it. I've got a week to prepare so plenty of time.

    Got a message from my wife saying that she's bought me a present from my Amazon wishlist. So being the nosey beggar that I am, I go and check.

    She's only just gone and bought me over £400 worth of audio bits...

    A Fiio X5 and a Fiio E12A amp to go with it!!
    (I grabbed the linking kit straight away)

    Those should make my Etymotic ER4S IEMs sound super purdy.

    Hehe, nah. She got some inheritance through so she's getting herself a new laptop (desperately needed) and decided to treat me as well (because I'm awesome and stuff)
