Driving back home from our all-hands meeting in Charlotte – and running low on gas. When I get off 85 I see the first gas station has gas! Whoot! So I pull in behind this big F350 at the pump. Well, I sit there a bit, I can see the nozzle in the truck, and figure the driver is in the store. I get a chaw of tobaccy and sit there a bit longer. Eventually, I decide this is taking too long, but the dang lot is filled up, and I got......
Tommy decided his deck needed to come down (it didn’t have anything to do with the fact that I made a section fall just by standing on it)! So, he got him a contractor all set to come out and build this beautiful patio around the house, but that old deck has to go first, and the contractor he hired doesn’t do demolition. Fortunately, Tommy has friends who like to destroy stuff – and those friends have children who are well versed in the arts of destruction. So we took 15......
What the Heck? Yea, I know, I went AWOL this summer. Just sorta dropped off the face of the email scene and you didn’t hear from me – sorry about that. I was busy having one awesome summer! Seriously, it’s been fantastic! I also really got into micro-blogging on Twitter. But I realize many of you aren’t quite that plugged in. I also have received a lot of emails in the past week asking me when I would be sending the emails again – so I guess ya’ll got back from your......
This book has been one of those rare treasures that I have longed to read and never quite got around to it. First, I had to obtain the book, and it sat on my Amazon Wishlist for quite some time, till my Mother-In-Law actually purchased it for my birthday this year. My how I wish that I had obtained it sooner and read it before now.Building upon the Christian Doctrine of Joy in God as central to the disciples walk with Christ as well as his efforts to glorify God – this book......
Remember the link I provided a few days ago (Lawyer: Ripping MP3s Illegal, Grounds for Lawsuit) regarding MP3 Shredding? Well, apparently I was passing around some rather poor journalism – according the this blog on c|netNews.com titled RIAA shreds Washington Post story in debate – now this comic seems appropriate. 🙂 So, I do apologize for spreading panic and malcontent! You can safely burn your CD’s to MP3’s again … as long as you don’t share them with anyone else! On the other hand, my favorite Candidate (Mike Huckabee – http://www.mikehuckabee.com/) won the......
Another awe inspiring read from O’REILLY – I mean really, it’s stuff like this that makes you wonder what sort of penny pincher is keeping us from having a Corporate Safari Online Bookshelf! This book looks at application architecture, development practices, technologies, Unicode, and general infrastructure work, and the Author (Cal Henderson) nails it! Cal draws on his experience designing and developing for www.flickr.com which belongs to Yahoo! Inc. and it appears that experience is extensive. He also has a fun and disarming writing style, which makes what could be relatively dry......
Well, I’ve got a release tonight and I’ll need to be in the office until at least 6:30pm, maybe a little later – so I might be a wee bit late getting the fire lit. If you show up, and I’m not there yet – go ahead make yerself at home – you know the routine. If you don’t know what I’m referring to – every Friday night at 7:30pm I head out behind the house and start a fire. Then I sit around to see who shows up, and I’m never......
