What I want to be when I grow up!

Before getting into the substance of this post, I would like to make note that I am done (at least in the development phase) with all projects relating to my current team at Kroger. I finished up my Informix 4gl program the other day, and worked up the script to execute it with options from the cronjob. It’s a fine program I might say if you give me a moment to gloat. As a korn shell script the updating of the database would have taken 86 hours to run (keep in mind that the update needs to take place every 24 hours) and now that the 4gl is compiled and in place, it takes a whopping 4 minutes! The boss was happy.

Onto today’s topic… Today, I… Jason Pawlak, decided what I want to be when I grow up. I think I’m going to train seeing-eye dogs. How cool would that be, really. I was driving home from work and saw this blind lady with her dog, and two other people (who I assumed to be family) She is standing with her dog on the corner of a very busy intersection, and is calm as can be, along with her dog mirroring her lack of excitement. So many things going around, but this dog knows its purpose. Very cool indeed. Now that I’ll be working normal hours at my job, I am thinking about volunteering at a humane shelter around here. More on that later though, no details yet. No work tomorrow, meetings on Friday, then up to Blue Ash. G’night!
