Just about everything is now rolling with Plan C. I am registered with the City of Alexandria, have opened an account at Suntrust for Foxchase Accounting Services, have picked up business cards and have more on order, the domain and website are in process with Windstream, and tomorrow morning I'll be going to Springfield for a First Friday networking breakfast. I am optimistic and trying hard not to be manic about this, which is a bit hard when everyone who sees the business plan or who has heard the (developing) elevator pitch thinks I have a Million Dollar Idea.
The less said about the Nationals' recent travails against the "depleted" Phillies, the better.
The old second-hand plasma monitor died Tuesday night, so I wound up going down to Staples (where I had to pick up some cards for Friday anyway) and picking up an HP 20" LCD for cheap, even before the $5 coupon. It's a little scary; at the recommended 1600x900 resolution, I can almost see into the future, or maybe as far as Russia. The built-in speakers suck, unfortunately, and there's no room left on the desk's shelf to put the old Gateway speakers. I'll figure something out, or just wear the headphones a lot.
Thanks to gohanvox for tipping me to a sweet deal on Amazon: Rush's Clockwork Angels for $0.99. It's sounding pretty good so far, and not just because of the price.
And now I need to get cleaned up, dressed, and head down I-95.
