  1. Now that I've got some time, what happened this year?

    15 February 2015

    I've already done my obligatory post of some version of the song Birthday by The Cruxshadows what happened this last year that I can look back upon?

    It's funny. I was sitting there earlier tonight at dinner (yes, I post-dated this entry so it would match up with the other one) and I came up with a bunch of stuff that I'm kicking myself for not having written down. I guess that's the way it goes - thoughts go in, thoughts go out, but unless you trap them somehow they're probably not going to come back. But I'll take a stab …

  2. Lifestyle update.

    04 August 2014

    Not dead. Very busy, getting ready to ship out for work in a couple of days. In rather a lot of pain, too. Doing what I can to manage it.

  3. Another turn around the wheel, another charge over the top.

    15 February 2014

    Another year, another birthday.

    No, I won't post yet another video of Birthday by the Cruxshadows. I've done that the last few years, and I figure everybody could use a break. So, I put together a Youtube playlist of music that I listened to a lot last year. Open it in another tab or a new window and plug your headphones in if you've a mind to. Just click the "Play All" button.

    Good, you're back.

    I can't say that I expected the last year to turn out the way it did. I always said that I try to demolish …

    Happy New Year, everyone.

    I rang in the new year with Lyssa and Amberite at the Cat Club's 80's Dance Party, with special guest DJ Kurt Harland from Information Society. A wonderful night was had by all. Unfortunately, it also completely wrecked our sleep schedules...

    I haven't been posting much here lately because, outside of working I've been head-down doing research for either a paper or a series of articles, and there is a lot of information to organize. When it's ready, you'll know it.

  5. It's three days until Christmas.

    22 December 2013

    My shopping isn't done yet. I have the first cold of the year, which is manifesting as a near-constant sneezing fit and feels like I've been awake for four days straight (when, in point of fact, I've been sleeping 10-14 hours a day).

    'this the season.

  6. Recovering.

    21 July 2013

    Since v0.5b of Byzantium Linux hit the Net, all of us have been taking the opportunity to get a little R&R before proceeding to the fifth and final milestone, which is writing up everything that happened in the previous six months. That's going to be a lot of stuff, but we've got good notes, a bunch of blog posts, and no shortage of lessons learned through the development process. I think when we sit down and get to work, we'll get it knocked out, edited, and published in not a very much time. I'll also be in a …

  7. Revisiting some old hobbies.

    10 July 2013

    Life's busy right now. I'm being pulled in several different directions, sometimes simultaneously, which hasn't left a lot of time or compute cycles to do any writing. What I have had time for lately has been a lot of "fire and forget" stuff, which doesn't really do anyone any good. Failing that, long hours at my day job doing what I do best. I don't think any more need be said on that point.

    The next release of Byzantium Linux (v0.5b) is due in five days, so that's where most of my spare time goes - knocking out the next …

  8. ...another year has come and gone...

    It's that time of year once more...



    In the abstract, it's always been easy to figure out what to post on my birthday. I can think about it in the car on my way in to work and have some ideas of where to go and what to say, but when it comes time to put fingers to keys to actually write something, words scatter like dust in a sunbeam. Funny how that happpens, usually with really personal things. So, time for a little nonlinear text editing, where I scribble random ideas, and go back later to rearrange and flesh …
