Catching Up

5 business days off (plus almost 2 weekends surrounding it) results in well over 1,000 emails (after sorting spam) and a few thousand items in my RSS reader. 3 power hours of working at it, and I’m down to < 250 email and only about 1,500 items in my RSS reader. Should be able to […]

Summer vacation along the east coast visiting The Outer Banks and Washington DC

5 Years

Despite this year actually knowing it was coming, it still sounds strange that I’ve had this site up and running for 5 years now. That’s a half decade. In all honesty when I started I didn’t expect it to last too long. I’ve had the domain for nearly 10 years. From Then To Now This […]

The Sound… Of Silence

I’m semi-quiet lately. A cold last week kicked my butt for pretty much the entire week. That’s always fun. I’m also working on some changes to this blog. It’s been a long time since that’s happened. Hopefully I’ll have it out of dev and running by the end of the month. As a result I […]

Broken

That sprained wrist… turns out it’s broken. So now (again) 100% one handed typing for the moment. Speaking of broken… Bug 389131 could use a hand (pun intended). Same for 389128. Anyone want to assist? Both have patches, may need tweaks/cleanup still. I just can’t manage extra coding until I get patched myself.

The Silence

It’s a bit quiet around here for the past week because I sprained my wrist pretty bad. As a result I have been avoiding typing more than I already do at work. I am slowly resuming and getting back to normal as it allows. Been down this road before. Not as much fun as it […]

St. Maarten Airport Fun

A week ago I came back from St. Maarten, an island known for it’s weather and beaches. There are a few ways to tell a good beach from a great one: Clean beaches. Evidence that topless tanning is allowed. Signs like the one to the left warning you of death by heavy metal. A beach […]

Back

I was away last week… 3700+ emails (thankfully mostly spam) to process. Have some video and photo goodness to get up here at some point, but that won’t happen until this weekend at the earliest since I’ve got some catching up to do. I suspect I won’t be blogging much this week as I do […]

St. Maartin

Took some photos and video of my trip to Saint Martin. The videos in particular aren’t the best quality, but quite fun to watch. Photos Also managed to shoot some video with my cell phone First Landing Corsairfly – Boeing 747 Takeoff DHL Cessna 208 Caravan Insel Air – MD83 Takeoff American Airlines – Boeing […]

Wet

Damn you wet weather. Closing roads and making things a mess. 8 inches of rain in Central Park. The irony will be drought restrictions being posted later this summer.
