A couple of years ago, we dropped cable TV and setup our XBox to watch live streaming Netflix. After awhile, I put together a computer running Boxee, and we started watching Hulu and other shows that way. Now we’ve got a PS3 along with the XBox, and Hulu Plus is available on both. I’ve also [...]
Got a chance to help the Joplin relief effort out a bit yesterday. I only played a small part, but every bit counts. I can’t get there to help physically, but I plan to do what I can. In case you didn’t know, Joplin is my hometown, but I moved to Houston this past December. [...]
“Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.” (Douglas Adams) The only thing constant in life is change. And as such bamed and family are on the cusp of a most significant change. Seven years ago this month I began a new adventure as the ‘IT guy’ for College Heights Christian Church in Joplin, MO. “I [...]
I was reading This Day all Gods Die by Stephen Donaldson last night and a somewhat disappointing thought occurred to me. The Gap series has been great. I’ve really enjoyed it and it has kept me on the edge of me seat through at least the last four books. The first one pretty much told [...]
In case anyone out there is interested, I’ve updated my resume to include recently obtained degrees and certifications. Specifically, a couple of months ago I managed to obtain OSCP status, and today I graduated with my Associate of Science in Information Technology. I’m continuing on to achieve my Bachelor’s by next summer and I hope to obtain [...]
OK, so I asked my family, “What are some more goals I can set for myself for next year?” And Josef, my oldest son, said, “Come up with more goals.” So, that’s pretty much it. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you’ve already seen all these, but I thought I’d take some time [...]
Ok, once again a simple goal. Basically, our family grew from 5 to 6 this year and we need better transportation seat us all comfortably. We’ve currently got two cars, one only seat 5, the other seats 6 but nor comfortably. So, I want a vehicle we can all comfortable fit in. Um… ya, that’s [...]
I you don’t already know, this is the informal company motto of Google, and I think is a pretty good goal for anyone both personally and professionally. It’s simple and too the point.
This goal can be interpreted in plenty of ways and won’t be easy to quantify. The basic philosophy behind this goal is to take some time each week to create something original. This goal could be satisfied by contributing to an OSS. There may be a few lines of code I contribute that I have [...]
Obviously, this is also another one of those personal goals. My daughter loves it when I take her out on a “Date.” She’ll talk about it for weeks afterwards. And of course, my boys are pretty fun to hang out with too!
