My list for 2009

I don’t see the point of having a single new year ‘resolution’. I’d rather list a bunch of stuff that I’d like to accomplish both professionally and personally .. so here’s my list broken down as such: Professional: C++ is here to stay, its not going to go away, I may as well get used […]

My handwriting has gone to pot

During the last month I’ve had to accomplish dozens of standardized forms .. the kind that give you little 1 CM boxes for each letter allowed. Despite the advent of the web and secure socket layer .. these forms remain a part of our lives. In the past five years, I can remember only two […]

Time for more tutorials

I’m (nearly) done converting all of my existing documentation into Asciidoc format. Its time to write more tutorials. What remains is, what to write? I could do more Xen centric stuff, perhaps some bits on how to setup storage servers, roll your own single system image cluster? I’d rather write what people actually need. So, […]

When to use ‘a’ or ‘an’

Echoreply is nofollow free :)

Since I have done quite a bit of hacking and tinkering on my WP code base, getting certain plug-ins working can be a bit of a chore. I’ve installed nofollow-free and it seems to be working rather well. Because I’ve changed many things in how my theme works, the pretty blue band at the top […]

So I tried Blogrush, for exactly three minutes

Most of the people who read my blog do so via RSS and never leave a comment. That’s O.K. by me, I enjoy knowing that I provided someone, somewhere with something (at least semi-interesting) to read. I was hoping for more comments when I re-opened my blog. A service named Blogrush was getting quite a […]
