Pirates, Ghosts, and Tigger Too

October 31, 2000

Halloween was tonight and we got wiped out….I really mean we gave each kid

one piece of candy and we were out in two hours. I’ve lived in places that had

only about 10 kids per night so this was a shocker. We had fun and gave candy

to anyone who came by. Niki dressed as Rizzo and I guess I looked like some

poor shlub from the 50’s. No slicked back hair or leather jacket. 

I’ve been really jumping at work. We have a banquet Friday so I worked all

weekend on programs and anything else that was needed. I’ve been putting in

about 6 day a week, Sunday-Friday, so I can get some of my work done. This hasn’t

left too much time to play around with systems. I have kicked up my research

and study of ASP. I have some ideas that I really want to put to use in the

“Content Management” folder right now. Priority 1 is to ditch our

current intranet phonebook for an ASP-based one that can be managed by Telecommunications

via an access database. That would take me out of the loop for updating that

section of the intranet. I’ve found a nice and free product that I’m testing

now. I will secure a page so only admins and telcoms can update it. Priority

2 is to find an email to ASP Database manager. I want to take emails with a

certain subject and put those into a database that updates, via ASP, a News

page. Similar idea to SLASHcode , but

with IIS/NT in mind. Priority 3 is to sit down and actually make a year long

plan of where the intranet needs to be. On top of the priorities, I am going

to clean up the intranet page a bit and transfer some ideas over in doing so.

Just think, this is just for the intranet, I have more in mind for the 

.org site.
