I know many of you haven't seen me around lately and maybe pondered if I was still alive or not.
I would just like to let you guys know that I'm alive still and doing well. I've just been really busy with work and also hang around a shoe forum with all my free time. I recently got promoted to admin at Instyleshoes.com's forum, so that has taken up a lot of time too. I don't really come back here much, except to see what the people still post around here. I feel that if I can't contribute in a positive way, I won't be posting. I'll still come around once in awhile, but not as much as before.
I'm working as an engineering intern for the city of chino hills. I work with the civil engineers that handle the city's streets, traffic signals, water and sewer system, building plans, and etc. I've also gone out a few times with the city's building inspectors to check on people's building projects to make sure they are up to city code. I'm currently working on two big projects. One is to organize the city's entire collection of building plans and aerial photos, so they are easier to find. We are also going to have an outside contractor come and scan all the city's building plans so they can be viewed from the city's network. I will also have to help make a database for all that. The second project I'm helping on involves expanding the city's reclaimed water system. I work a 9 hour day from 7:30 to 5:30, but get every Friday off. Lots of work and long hours, but the pay help makes up for that.
Here's my very first pay check ever.

BTW, I'm thinking of using some of my hard earned money to either get a DVD Burner or a 17/18" LCD screen for my Birthday when it comes around in December.
cfitz & F1pilot, I miss talking with you guys.
