OK. So, I finally got my offer letter on Saturday. The packet that I had to fill out for my preliminary background check wasn't as arduous as I thought it would be. I managed to get it all mostly filled out over the weekend. I just needed to get my signature Notarized in a couple of places, and then I dropped it all in the mailbox today.
Today was also a good day in that, after many many months, I was able to resolve a long-term conflict between my external hard drive and my printer. I know that it seems silly, but because of the issue, and the low priority I placed on attacking it, I have not been able to print directly from my computer to my local printer since this past fall. (Yup. I felt like a real nimrod about the whole thing.)
Anyway, at issue was a USB conflict. If I had the drive plugged in, and my printer, my computer would endlessly reboot. Special, huh? The solution was to switch the drive over to Firewire. Sounds simple, right. And, yes, I thought of the solution back around the end of last year. I just haven't had the time to screw around with it.
What made me find the time to deal with it today? Easy: I had something else that I was supposed to be doing. I was supposed to be working on my final paper for school. Well, it wasn't a complete procrastination move. I needed to print a massive listing of notes, and I really didn't feel like playing around on my husband or son's computers to do it. Plus, I felt like a real yoyo for not fixing the issue months ago. And, well, ok, I WAS looking for a dodge on the paper.
In any event, I resolved the printer issue AND made good progress on my paper. Which reminds me ... I suppose I should get back to it. (grin)
