(Most of it anywayz, except for when he’s rambling about killing himself b/c we don’t like seeing depressed people right?) Anyhow he’s doing this linked thing and now I’m all like wassup wid dat?

And then they laugh at you


There’s nothing worse than doing a presentation then realizing your software is non-functional. I don’t know if being a software developer makes it worse or better because when you kinda know what’s wrong 1 1/2 minutes before the curtain call you tend to panic even more because you have a rough idea how many lines …

Everything but the kitchen synch!


I got this cool MacBook that I’ve been yapping about and I’m getting hooked. It started when I had my first conversation with it. I’ve never met a PC (or computer of any type) that I could talk to. So then I started doing development on it. It’s got a native bash shell, none of …

So then I start seeing these weird emails with …

Mac Daddy!


Ok, let me first apologize for the extended moment of silence. Ironically my last post was titled “Blostipation” and that’s exactly what’s been going on. I’ve had lots of things to write about and little time to post. I got about 27 posts backed up on WordPress none of them worthy of your peering eyes, …

Blogstipation!


Listen up people. I’m suffering from a condition that affects many artists, designers, musicians, etc. It is a common issue that impedes the creativity centers of the mind. (Not that anything I’ve ever posted here is creative in the least but bear with me.) It’s a little embarrassing for me to talk about but I …

Can’t blog now… Coding…


Things have been slow here partially because I’m gearing up for my new job and also because I’m toying with a bunch of Java web technologies. Earlier I was flirting with Grails. (If you haven’t seen or touched Grails I beg you to download it. Trust me, after the download completes you’ll be begging me …

New Job!


My father use to tell me, “Son, find a job doing what you like and you’ll never have to work again!” I love my job. I’ve been working for what used to be a small software company owned by one man and is now part of 3M for about 3-4 years and it’s been great. …
