MP meets American Politics

Mr. Praline: ‘Ello, I wish to register a complaint. Owner: We’re closin’ for lunch. Mr. Praline: Never mind that, my lad. I wish to complain about this candidate what I supported not half an hour ago from this very website! Owner: Oh yes, the, uh, Howard Dean…What’s,uh…What’s wrong with em? Mr. Praline: I’ll tell youRead More

Giving a lecture!

I’ve been invited to give a nice talk on LTSP at the Boston Linux Users group in April. Pretty spiffin. Folks should try and come to it, I love seeding an audience with friends and supporters 🙂 Here’s the actual entry for the talk.

Day 2 of self-employment

Yoinkin yimminies. This week (Thu and Fri) I was not at Intuit, working on my own things at home. A lot of setup and prep work, but I’ve gotten things done that have really been just -hanging- around for ages.

W00t.

One of the clients I’ve been trying to land for Stonekeep just called me and said “the backer is really hot on using your system, can we change a few things and come up with a way to do this?” – and what they’re asking for is reasonable. One more client. And not a freeRead More

So, what am I doing here?

A Blog? Why a blog. Well, i’ve been thinking. There’s a lot of times when I’d just sort of like to log and spout off what I’m working on, what I’m doing, things I see, things I’m thinking about. LiveJournal isn’t quite the right medium, and some discussion lists aren’t exactly it either. I’ll tryRead More

And now, the requisite post.

Of course, what’s the first post anyone puts on their blog? Something having to do with “Look, I have a blog.” Well, I do. so there, nyeah. Hopefully I’ll even have content, but most likely it’ll be tinkered blatherings interspersed with “I haven’t updated this in a while, hopefully after [some life intensity] thing hasRead More
