Daniel Andrlik
Daniel Andrlik lives in the suburbs of Philadelphia. By day he manages product teams. The rest of the time he is a podcast host and producer, writer of speculative fiction, a rabid reader, and a programmer.

Today I was covering for a colleague, which involved working from 4am this morning to 2pm this afternoon. The worst part was that since I’ve gotten used to going to work at 8am, I could not get myself to go to sleep until some point after midnight. This means that by the time I got up this morning I had about two hours of sleep, and I have been subsisting on coffee and other caffeinated products all day long.

The funny bit is that I got pulled from the duties I was covering for an important meeting regarding the redesign of our training program due to my extensive background in training from my previous employer, and I actually managed to stay alert for the whole time. Go me. :-)

Of course, now it is only 4pm and I am ready to crawl into bed and pass out. Unfortunately, I just started a totally engrossing novel which promises to keep me up for a while. When I finish I promise a full formal review!

Good night.

Seriously, this is ridiculous. It was cute at first getting the occasional spammer. I even took some delight in moderating their comments as spam and banishing them to the WordPress netherworld, but it is starting to get a little time consuming.
