>(Is maintenances a word? Is it Friday yet?)

Right-click, add to dictionary. BINGO, it's now a word. :)

BTW, this is the first job where I am actually sad (because I want/need
more time to meet my personal work goals) that it is the end of the week. I
think that is a good sign or a sign of madness.

I hope that all of you are enjoying your jobs... because it is so terribly
unhealthy to work in an environment where all you think about is weekends
or a more permanent reprieve. :-]
