Yes, I have returned. And it's been a long and interesting two months for me. I was promoted at work again, this time with an actual title change. I'm presently a full time second in charge of my department. Which pays me ~$650.00 per week, with ~$550.00 of that being completely disposable.
Unfortunately, come the end of the month, I'll be a permanent part time employee instead of a full time employee (but still 2IC), which loses me a grand total of eight hours a week. Meaning I'll drop down to ~$550.00 per week, with ~$450.00 of that being completely disposable.
And that is where I've spent my last two months. In between brooding anger and malice I managed to finish my new computer with only two major setbacks. One being the case I ordered was an ATX case where my motherboard was an ATX-XL... Yes, the motherboard was too big for the case. The other being my perfectly legit copy of Windows 7 is apparently pirated. $17.50 later and I had a new perfectly legit activation code. Now it's complete and runs like a beast.
And now I'm going back to work.
