Rising from the ashes

HeliOS logo

It may or may not be a sheer coincidence — if you even believe in this sort of thing — that the symbol in the HeliOS Solutions logo is a phoenix, because we at HeliOS Solutions West may be rising from the ashes. And that also speaks for the Tux Project and any other entity that graces my office with its presence.

The landlord seems to be all over this crisis, and if I’m to take him at his word, he may have the office inhabitable by the first of the month, meaning I can move back into the office in time for — oh, I don’t know — a Christmas party masquerading as an installfest, or vice versa.

More news as developments occur, as they say.

Burned out

November 12, 2007 2 comments

No, that’s not a 420 reference — unfortunately last Thursday, there was a fire at the Felton Trading Post, where my office is located. The fire ripped through the front of the story, wiping out most of Kelly’s and Melanie’s inventory, but left my office and the back of the store unscathed (save for a smoky scent reminiscent of a barbeque that many of the machines now have).

With no power for the next two weeks, at the least, I had to move out and back into my home. And for those of you who have been keeping score at home, I rented office space because having seven computers in the living room was a bit cramped, and my better half Kyoko, who is showing annoyance after being a paragon of patience (she married me, right?), is not exactly pleased.

Now I’m looking for new space, but first since it’s Veterans Day — thank you to all those who serve our nation, by the way — the family is going to take a drive down to Monterey for a visit to the aquarium.
