  • Six Month Review

    Yesterday I had the opportunity to sit down with my supervisor. It looks like I am going to stick around here for the long term. From the start, people treated me as though I knew something despite my fear that I didn't know enough. I have contributed to the projects and picked up lots of […]

  • QotD: This Is When I’m At My Best

    Are you a morning person or a night owl? When I was young, I was sooo much of a morning person. Even on a few hours sleep, I felt great. Now, I need at least 7 hours sleep to feel great the next morning. Predicated on that, I feel great in the morning! All too […]

  • QotD: I’m Crafty

    What's the last thing you crafted, constructed or created yourself? Hmmmmm… I'm not really a physical crafting kinda guy. I mostly deal with virtual things on the computer: photography, web sites, software. In the six months of my new job, I have not even been in the room where my 60 or so servers reside. […]
