I doubt many of you have heard of Omar Faruk Tekbilek, but you should probably give him a shot. The group is Turkish, or at least the music is. There are some really cool rythyms in it, especially if you like drumming. So this morning I crank up Omar while we get … [Read more…]
Our first day at Dragon*Con was pretty good. It feels a little different having a baby with grandma while we’re out. We hope to have him along by this time next year, but he probably won’t be interested in spending the week just yet. We’re heading back tomorrow late in the afternoon. … [Read more…]
Tomorrow begins our annual visit to Dragon*Con. The times are always good, and I hope to even learn a thing or two. I should have many pictures to share within the albums afterward (and during for that matter – this is a blog). Head over to the Dragon*Con photo album to see … [Read more…]
I don’t think everyone knows this: The price paid for an SMS 2003 Primary Site Server license includes a SQL Server 2000 standard edition license. This from a reputable source at Microsoft. As always, don’t just go on my word.

I’m not among the l33t when it comes to programming, but I do enjoy a good scriptercize! If you are one of them, then you know who you are and can explain it binary (converted in your head from hex, of course). You should also be looking into the Google Code Jam events … [Read more…]

His take on OpenSource was familiar; that without corporate backing and support, there can be … [Read more…]
I just got back from the open drum circle we put on in downtown Gainesville. I can’t tell you how cool it was. Lot’s of people got involved, either just to listen or to actually get up there with us and play. We had a better turn-out than we expected. Hell, … [Read more…]
I’ll be downtown this evening in Gainesville if you want to come by and hear some African-style rythyms. There will be at least four of us, but hopefully others as well playing. As always, the public is invited to sit and pound for a while.

“It’s been a long time since my output has risen above sea level. This is the benchmark for me”
This is probably one of the funnier blogs I’ve seen as of late. When you blog your daily movement, it seems like we’re all just full of crap.

“‘The execution of today’s warrants disrupted an extensive peer-to-peer network suspected of enabling users to traffic illegally in music, films, software and published works,’ Attorney General John Ashcroft said in a statement. ‘The Department of Justice is committed to enforcing intellectual property laws, and we will pursue those who steal copyrighted materials even when they … [Read more…]
