Happy Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas Eve to everyone. I wasn't expecting anything but I did receive 3 holiday cards in the mail. Those are much appreciated. Thanks. I won't be going anywhere today and tomorrow. Just staying at home, relaxing and catching up on stuff.

Obligatory link to the NORAD Santa Tracker. :)

More musings on the surprise Where's George site redesign: While I'm not the most enthused about the overall look, I think the best improvements to the website are just below the surface. When entering bills, focus now lands on the serial number field in the form and that does speed things up a bit. Also, making the refresh explicit for 5,000+ bill folks eliminates the 3am problem in the old website, where if you accidentally hit "Your Bill" after 3am, you get stuck with the old stats for the next day. In addition, now that everyone gets just one refresh a day, it appears that there is now sufficient processing power to update the zip code and state stats more regularly. No doubt there are a lot more improvements that I've yet to discover.
