Dressin’ Up!

So as folks may or may not know, I’m out visiting triggur on business. The trip happened to fall across Halloween. Trig and his SO had long-ago made plans to go to a party hosted by some of their close friends in Boulder. And they were insistent that I go to. Trig and his SO […]

Sumus quo sumus

There are still features to add, but with an upgrade system, we should be set. Now is trying to time the manual to print with the proper isntructions and […]

Today’s lesson in yakshaving…

Travel again

I will be out in Colorado again from Oct 20 through Nov 5. I should be reachable online, etc.

I suck at estimates.

It’s become more and more obvious over the last few months that I am not good at long term estimates of time. My previous job was about nothing but deadlines. We had to quote times constantly and they had large money values attached to them. But in many cases, though I was assgined multiple layers […]
