SuperBowl OverSeas? I Don't Think So

If you are not an American football fan you can disregard this entire post.

While being Bob’s Taxi Service yesterday I heard through one of our local all-sports-all-the-time talk radio stations that the NFL is thinking about hosting a SuperBowl overseas. Man, where do you start on how bad of an idea this is? Read More...

The End of Black And White

I watched the movie, Quantum of Solace this weekend. I find the new Bond movies to be stark contrast to the old Bond and frankly I like it a lot better. Perhaps it’s because I grew up on television in the 80’s where everything was black and white simple. I don’t miss those shows. Read More...

BSG Retrospective

We’ll depart from our normal programming to digress into a very important topic - science fiction. This post has absolutely no programming or business information in it. I will also violate my blogging rule by talking a bit about religion, politics, and sex all in one post! If you are not a Battlestar Galactica fan, you can skip this one. Read More...

Stop and Smell the Roses (It's Good For You)

It has been a busy couple of months. Between projects, writing and starting the Association of REALbasic Professionals, life has been busy. This weekend the family intervened and got me to do something other than work behind the computer. It’s a great example of stopping and smelling the roses. Read More...

eReader and Exercise

A while back I told you all about the Sony eReader and while I like the device I still think their support sucks. However, I recently found one more reason to like it. Read More...

Sony e-Reader

I’m a reader. I love to read. I’ll read just about anything but I’m a big fan of science fiction and while I wax and wane on favorite authors and types of sci-fi I’ve always had a passion for good science fiction. Heinlein, Asimov, Hamilton, Card, MacCaffrey and Reynolds are always on my shelf. Read More...

The Sixty One

I listen to music all day long while I'm working. It's a habit (good or bad) that I developed in college while studying for hours on end and have kept up since. Heck, I became a DJ at the college radio station (WOUI - pumping out an amazing 10,000 milliWatts!) to listen to a lot of different music and did a study marathon one finals week because it was the 'quietest' place on campus. I love music and it's one of the reasons why I have such a large music collection and why I fell in love with iTunes and my first iPod.

Thanks for Letting Me Play in Your Sandbox

I've been quiet the last two weeks as I finished up on a project I've devoted a lot of time and effort to. Friday was my last day on an accounting package that I've worked on for the last five and half years. This has just been one of my many clients in that time but I've been on-site, every morning, for years. In my entire career I've never spent longer than two years on any project and this includes some fairly big ones in my electrical engineering days.
