Dungeon crawl? Not exactly.

Due to the current economic situation, network upgrades at work are a hard sell to make. It can be difficult convincing the powers that be to loosen the purse strings. Being a certified installer, as I am, lets the office counter most of the cost and scheduling objections that inevitably crop up.
I recently had the opportunity to install an extension to the fiber backbone in the building. It was just a simple bridge between two computer labs, but it got me into some of the locked cubbyholes in, and under, my office building.

Team Tiffany

teamtiffany If you've been following me on Twitter or watching the widget to the right, you've seen this already but here it is again, this time longer than 140 characters. Syfy Movies was giving away some promotional material from the premier of Mega Python vs. Gatoroid starring Tiffany and Debbie Gibson. Yes, 80s teen pop sensations Tiffany and Debbie Gibson. Syfy Movies asked its Twitter followers to vote for their favorite. I allied myself with Team Tiffany and was rewarded with this large button.

So now the obvious question is, why choose Team Tiffany? Well, I grew up with songs like "I Think We're Alone Now". This is what I'm talking about.

And here's Debbie Gibson in close second.

That's right; I'm a nerd for 80s pop music.
