Things are going pretty well. New position is so much less stressful although getting used to the new schedule still has me thrown for a bit of a loop while I get used to it. Then there's the fact that our IT department didn't install everything on my computer properly, and I can't do parts of my job because of it. That does worry me, but my boss knows that I've been emailing them every week for a month. Mostly because I put him on the email chain. He even emailed, and they ignored him too. Excellent.

Going out of order, I decided on a forum setup for the game I had been talking about. I am currently working on building it and all the various things included in setting up a forum game. You can actually see if here and feel free to give me feedback. I've mostly just been trying to figure out how to make someone else's CSS behave since I have no idea how to write my own.

The best (and worst) thing about the new position by far is that one of my co-workers is about on the same level of comic book geek as I am so we spend a good bit of time talking about them. He has a tendency to read things I don't so I've been learning a lot about Captain America. He's also a really big DC fan. I have hit and miss DC knowledge. All his talk about the new 52 perked my interest, though, and I actually pre-ordered eight TPBs yesterday: Legion of Super-Heroes, Legion Lost, Teen Titans (Scott Lobdell FTW hopefully), Animal Man (per co-worker's suggestion), Birds of Prey (ZOMG, thank goodness someone is using Katana because I loved her in Batman and the Outsiders forever and ever ago), Justice League Dark, Justice League International (one word: ICE!) and Suicide Squad (Harley Quinn, nuff said). We'll see how they are.

Also thanks to our conversations, I ended up buying the comics edition of Collectorz as well as the app that turns my phone into a bar code scanner.

All his talk about the new 52 perked my interest, though, and I actually pre-ordered eight TPBs yesterday: <i>Legion of Super-Heroes</i>, <i>Legion Lost</i>, <i>Teen Titans</i> (Scott Lobdell FTW hopefully), <i>Animal Man</i> (per co-worker's suggestion), <i>Birds of Prey</i> (ZOMG, thank goodness someone is using Katana because I loved her in Batman and the Outsiders forever and ever ago), <i>Justice League Dark</i>, <i>Justice League International</i> (one word: ICE!) and <i>Suicide Squad</i> (Harley Quinn, nuff said).

Also thanks to our conversations, I ended up buying the comics edition of Collectorz as well as the app that turns my phone into a bar code scanner. <a href="http://home.insightbb.com/~magikfanfic/comics/index.html"This</a> was the result. That's all my comics, GNs and TPBs cataloged in one place. The format is a little ugly. I'll play around with themes when I add things to it.

Co-worker has also made me curious about dipping my toes back into the X-Men scene because Ed Brubaker wrote some of them, and he just goes on and on about this guy and how awesome his CA run is. I also finally caved and bought the first <i>Hellboy</i> TPB at his recommendation.

I do not need the comic fervor to be fueled again, but it really is fun to be excited about it.
