ASP, Ear Infections, Hives, and IRB

Since my last post I have made decent progress on my ASP site. I figured out how to do cross-page posting, send form data to a database, create master pages, and a handful of other tricks. I still haven't launched my "baby," but I'm getting very close.

During Thanksgiving our son had a double ear infection. As if that wasn't bad enough, he later developed hives as a result of the antibiotics he was on (resulting in a 4 a.m. visit to the ER). All is well now, and our sleep schedules are returning to normal.

So anyway, I've been scrambling to collect consent forms for my thesis (which has been seven years in the making). Although/because I have IRB approval through my university...I didn't bother to also secure IRB approval through my employer. I discovered today that I will also need IRB approval through my employer. Although I'm tempted to launch into a 10 page diatribe, I'll spare you the pain (mostly because my lunch is over and I don't have time).
