So this free iPod Shuffle thing is getting annoying. I actually got three people to sign up, but only 1 person actually “went green” as the lingo goes. Only one persone completed their offer and verified that it was actually complete. I kept emailing the other two people, but one is completely unresponsive and the other apparently only checks his mail every three weeks. All you have to do, if you complete an offer, is wait 15 days and send the people a copy of the offer confirmation email. Is that so hard? I’ve done it twice now, and every offer I’ve ever done has gone green.

I finally got desperate and openened myself up for a fourth referral trade, which has gone green in less than 72 hours. So now I have four people signed up, and still only two referrals. This has gotten to be more work than just finding the $125 for the damn thing in the first place. Why won’t these people put for the effort, it takes like 15 minutes on a saturday afternoon to make sure all your offers are valid and accounted for. The guy who only reads his email every 3 weeks or so even said he would be checking his offers that evening… it had already been 17 days, he should be green by now and I should have my damn iPod.

Today is the first day back for Faculty on campus… and as usually, its one of the craziest days of the semester. I need a drink… hell, I need a lot of drinks. Steve and I are both getting a crash course in how busy each of us were in our respective prior jobs at this time. Each of us thought the other one was really bored, but now we’re realizing that we just cover it up really well.I’ve got so many computers to update, and while I’m doing that, fix ones that broke over the summer, that I’m up to my eyeballs in orders. Yeesh!

This weekend we did some WoW stuff. Lets just say, guild gripes aside, it was all good. I also found out that my brother got to scam his way into Gencon. Bravo, bro!

I’ve only got 10 minutes left, but I’m going to see what I can do with it. Quick tip: its always easier to tell a student they’ve lost all the data on their disk, than it is to tell a faculty member that. It shouldn’t be, but it is.
