Weekly Review Oct 1-15

It’s been a long time since my last weekly review. And this is my first post as a freshly married man! For those of you who don’t know, Kim (Go Media’s office manager and Arsenal Customer Service Lady) and I have been together for 5 years. And we tied the knot on Sept. 27th. We spent the following week on a cruise in the western Caribbean and had a great time! Now it’s back to work. Here’s the rundown of what I’ve got accomplished since I’ve been back:

  • Moved into our new office and set up my work area. It’s cool so far. We’re still adjusting to the inconveniences of moving in while construction is still not totally complete.
  • We have a phone system now and my extension is 227. Now we don’t have wait until someone is off the phone before we can use it.
  • I’m working on revising some flash ad banners for Gallery Stock.
  • I am going back to using my Action Book for random day to day tasks. I stopped using pen and paper when we installed Outlook 2007, but I still feel more productive when I physically write stuff down.
  • Started working on the next Vector Pack. Some vines, brambles, and thorny stuff.
  • Arsenal 2 is making more progress. It was installed on our server and now we’re testing and finding bugs.
  • Added more skate decks to our Deck Peck store for you to purchase.
  • Launched Texture Pack 3 and a new font!

Here’s a photo taken at the end of our wedding reception with some Go Media folk.
