  2. How Any Enginerd Can Date a Beautiful Woman

    Ignite Seattle 10 is coming up just around the corner on June 14th, so mark your calendars. They had a call for submissions and I thought, “What the heck. But what to present on? It needs to be funny, but also relevant. And not a shill for some product.” As it turned out, I had…

  3. A New Project

    I signed up for a new project at work. It’s a part time position that also requires some volunteer hours, but I think that it will be an excellent experience. It’s part of an engineering career development program that allows engineers to gain experience by working on projects outside of their assigned program. I’ll be…

  7. 12 Months, 12 Books

    I have a new goal for this calendar year: Read 12 books in 12 months! I’m already off to a great start. I finally finished “Mere Christianity”1 in January when I was in Haiti (although that doesn’t count because I started it in 2009. When I was in Haiti, I also read: 1. Brain Rules:…

  8. Calculating Downloads

    I recently hit 70,000 downloads on Countdown Plugin, a small plugin I wrote for WordPress about five years ago. Actually, the timer is older than that.
