200th Post
I didn’t break any speed records getting getting to 200 posts, but I am here. So what is the prize for getting here? You have to put out the obligatory post announcing the achievement. It also means that it is time to put “Yes, I’m a geek” on your business card. Well, there it is. Now go about your business. Nothing to see here. Tags: 200th post ......

An Adventure Not To Be Repeated
Last weekend I had to travel out of town for a funeral and the flight out was one I don't want experience again. So what happened? I got to the airport early, but evidently that isn't a requirement for the flight crew. We were told they were coming in on another flight and hadn't arrived yet. Oh, and by the way the maintenance crew is looking at the breaks of our plane. Great! The crew finally arrived, but they decided it would be better if we didn't fly this particular aircraft. So an hour later ......

The Difference Between Working At The Office Or At Home
Today was yet another snow day in the Chicago Area. The client sent us home around lunch time. Since I don't have remote access to the client I had the unusual experience of trying to get work done at home for the client (grab all the files you need and put them on a thumb drive). I got to thinking about the difference between the office and home and I figured it would be fun to put down a few of these thoughts. Office Have most things you need at your finger tips Direct access to servers You can ......

Too Much Information
I was listening to .NET Rocks last week when Dan Appleman and Richard Campbell decided to start talking about the early days in computers. I decided to have a little fun and send the show an email with what I remember of the early days of computing. SURPRISE! They read it during the show. Of course it sounds funnier with Richard reading it than when I wrote it ......

Are Heavy Metal Bands Like Software Developers
This one is for Andrew who essentially threw the gauntlet down (whether he knew it or not) for me to write this post. So are members of heavy metal bands like software developers? I am going to say yes, and here are the reasons: They are both creative (or at least we like to think we are) Both can have serious attitudes They don't like the way the previous generation did things (big band and COBOL) Like to put together complicated combinations from the basic parts of their art Ok, it might be a little ......

Now that is cold!

This isn't as cold as it got around here, but considering it is the coldest it has stayed in a decade I needed evidence.  To add insult to injury it is snowing today.  Boy is the commute going to be fun.

My Hero

I got a Visual Studio Guy last year for listening to some MSDN webcasts.  One of the consultants that I work with likes to put villainous captions on him.  Check it out.
