Dear Sprint

I am no longer interested in your service. Apparently, I'm not the only one, with hundreds of thousands of other users also not interested in your service. Why? Because you aren't delivering the features that I want in a cell provider. Let me explain. Last night, my daughter, who is 9 months old, got a […]


There have been some dust storms lately about a splog ( reproducing Planet Debian and Planet Ubuntu content, and probably others, without obeying the author licenses that the content is being written under. DMCA notices have been issued, and Google notified for improper use of ads on their site. I personally have emailed the webmaster, […]

Why Blog? Because Google Might Hire You

Ok. Now that I have the official word on not getting hired by Google, I'm opening the Can 'O Worms. Yes, I almost took a job with Google, and no, I wasn't job hunting. Let me tell the story. It's a quiet day. I'm sitting in front of Hercules (R.I.P.), my faithful laptop, coding away, […]

Das Keyboard

My wife is going to kill me. Seriously. Don't tell her that I bought this, or I'm a dead man! Who am I kidding? She reads my blog, so she'll find out in her own due time. I just dropped 90 squid on keyboard!!! Not any keyboard, however, Das Keyboard. The great thing about this […]

My Day Today

I have 3 meetings, each about 2 hours a piece today. What a day! Here's my schedule (all times are UTC): 17:00-19:00: Meeting with my group OALUG about security using GnuPG. I am presenting. 19:00-21:00: Meeting with the Ubuntu-Utah group in #ubuntu-utah on IRC. I am helping conduct by aiding Christer, our Team Lead. 21:00-23:00: […]

How Many of Me

I too am invisible. There are: 0 people with my name in the U.S.A. How many have your name?

I Love My Job

Last week, we received some new hardware for our office (we move in to our little office, hopefully, today). Mainly, Dell workstations. Aside from the technical aspects, and the fact that these machines scream, the best part about yesterday was installing Debian GNU/Linux on them (Ubuntu wouldn't install (yes, I was surprised too)). There's something […]

New Job

Today was a big day for me. It was the day I started a new job. What's that you say? Yessir, I am no longer working for Venture Data, but I am now working for introPLAY. introPLAY is a startup company, and I am employee #3 out of 3. We are looking to hire 1 […]

Binary Counting

This should be a no-brainer for most geeks, but it was a slap in the face for me today. While at lunch with a coworker friend of mine, we were counting employees at our place of employment and how large the turnover has been and the size of it currently. As we were counting through, […]

2007 Resolutions

Today is the day that men reflect on their lives, and decide to make changes, hopefully, for the better. But for me, rather than make some idle promises on goals on stuff that I am not working on (that I most likely won't do), I'm just going to try and improve on the things that […]


I never really get personal on my blog. Mainly, it's all opinionated, heated, overly passionate and uninteresting. Frankly, I don't know why anyone reads my corner on the web. So, rather than ramble about some technology or cool tool, I'm just going to share a little about me. I may move this to a static […]
