Just another day at work

I just got off the phone with Jeff, the president of an ACH Processing company in California. He just approved me to move $250,000 per month through eRentPayer in the first month of operation. If you ask me, that's pretty risky for a company to do with a start-up like eRentPayer. It's very smart of him to approve us, though - it was a smart risk to take. As the president of eRentPayer I'm obviously going to have a biased opinion, but the more money we move, the more money he makes.

The cool thing about all of this is that eRentPayer will only talk in millions from now on.

It's nice that I've had some spare time at Banta to do many things for eRentPayer. Banta has affected my life so much. I don't know what I would do without it. I attached a picture of my desk there. Notice a few essential items of my desk.

1- The name tag right above the papers on the bulletin board. That is from outdoorsman.com - my first programming job that I got back in 2000. I can never forget my roots!
2- My laptop to the left. It has been on many a road trip, been used countless hours at home, at work, etc. I don't know how people make it in this business with normal desk PCs.
3- The 21" flat CRT monitor. This was taken from Crystal Canyon for compensation of the $4500 that they screwed me on. I hate those guys and I have their monitor to prove it.
4- The Wendy's cup. mmmmm I have it memorized. "Hi, may I take your order please." -- "Yes, I'd like a junior bacon, 5 piece nugget with BBQ, and a medium frosty."
5- The window. A year and a half ago, I got this office with the window. That was a good day. I like to open the shades in the afternoon and watch the planes land and take off from the private airport across the road. One of these days I got to get my pilots license.
6- The picture of Rachel to the right. Speaking of Rachel, it's her birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY RACHEL!!!
