Great speech about teachers.

Long overdue update...

Hey all. Sorry for the lack of posts. Work has kept me busy and I've been substituting twitter for blogging.

But, you all deserve better than that, so here is a quick update.

I've been traveling a lot for work. I have to visit all our remote offices as we switch users from one network to another, replacing every computer. In the past month or so I've been to Miami, Atlanta and North Carolina. In 2 weeks, it's LA, which is great because I get to spend Passover with Cori and family. Then, in the beginning of May is the big New York migration. Replacing 150 people's computers in 1 weekend should be a lot of fun. And, it's concert weekend with the chorus, just to add to it all.

Poker is been going OK. I still haven't completely recovered from the bad week that I last blogged about, but I've been moving in the right direction. I have been considering what it would take to make playing a career choice. A bad run like I had wasn't discouraging. And it's a good thing, because it happens to everyone and if I can't deal with adversity, then it's definitely not a good career choice for me. In any case, I have some specific goals that I need to reach before I would consider going pro. First, I need to built my bankroll to a very healthy level. I am looking for around 50 buy-ins. Second, I need to win as much as I make in a year, but do so in less than a year. If I can't do that, then clearly I am not ready for such a life change. So, we'll see how I do over the next few years.

I mentioned the upcoming concert. It's the Berlioz requiem. I am very excited. It was one of the first pieces I sang with the chorus, back when I joined in '92. I really love it and have been enjoying the rehearsal process immensely. And, maybe I can get the big New York project team from work to come... Here is the website with details.

Ok, that's all for now. For much shorter, but more regular bursts of info, check out my twitter page.
