 Letter From the Professor - June 19, 2008

Call 911! I have come down with an acute case of Spring Fever
Ok, I know it’s a little late in the season, but I suddenly find myself coming down with an extreme case of Spring Fever. The combination of favorable weather, longer daylight hours, warm water to swim in, fish that are running, exciting new movies and all the other nice things that occur this time of year has made sitting in front of my computer and concentrating increasingly difficult.

My workload is higher than ever. I have a lot of interesting and challenging projects going on simultaneously, but still I find staying focused next to impossible.

In past years Spring Fever was never this pronounced for me. I typically use the summer months for rebuilding and revamping my sites and getting caught up on engineering tasks I had waiting since "Prime Time". This year though the call of the wild has me.
Is anyone else suffering from Spring Fever?

How do you deal with it?

Help! Come post your experiences with Spring Fever and let’s come up with a cure here.

Lyndsay Harmon Update
I chatted with the Captain today and we have troubling news about Lyndsay. I am sad to report she is not doing well. She was placed back on a ventilator several days ago and is no longer conscious. She has suffered bleeding in the brain and a series of seizures. Lupus has severely damaged her kidneys and they are functioning at a diminished rate. If there are not improvements over the next 72 hours the Doctors may remove her from the ventilator. We will keep you posted on Lyndsay’s progress each week until she hopefully returns home. If you can lend a hand, a prayer or even a few lines of encouragement please join us here.

May - how did you do? Posted by Dominique

 Manager's Corner

NeilNeil, Poker Heaven

I was born and raised in South-West Scotland, until I moved to Dundee to get stuck into university. My education was actually in music, I have a BA degree in Popular Music Performance, but my love for poker escalated alongside it - I founded our university's student poker society in 2003, developing and running it over the next few years. After university, and 23 years in Scotland, I moved down to London for my first job within the gaming industry, as poker affiliate executive for a small startup company, where I learned a lot very fast, particularly how NOT to run a company! I moved onto Poker Heaven in January 2007 and have been there ever since. I have been in a few different positions but have finally settled happily into the role of Affiliate Manager. I have to say I love working for PH, and I love this industry!
