Managing Technology in the Home – Striking a Balance

I’m both a geek and a nerd. Be that the case, one should assume my children will suffer at least one if not both of those affectations as well. One would be correct. Our household is full of technological implements. Given the range of variety of options, it becomes important to control access. I want to talk about managing technology in the home.

You didn't come this far to only come this far - Finding your motivations

Finding your motivations for success

Recently I was faced with some difficult decisions regarding employment. I had been experiencing some internal strife and as a result was “open to new opportunities.” While I hadn’t been actively pursuing options I figured that if something came along I’d at least consider it.

Nearing the end of my “openness” some external events occurred that set up an interesting situation. Ultimately I was faced with a decision that required me to understand myself and work at finding my motivations.

How I’m clearing my gaming backlog

I’m a gamer. Video games are what initially interested me about computers. DOS prompts, autoexec.bat, config.sys, and a batch loader to reconfigure the system depending on which game I wanted to play was where I first learned how to configure things.

Exploring the internet I’ve compiled a way that works for clearing my gaming backlog.

Hello World!

Hello world – A programmer’s obligatory salutation

This is an obligatory “Hello World” post seeing as I’m a developer.  My intention is to post weekly about programming topics: what I’m working on, what I’ve discovered, and where I’m going.  I’m hoping that this will serve as a resource for others as much as an archive for me.  Learn more about me.
