Swearing to Cope with Pain

Man, it has been a while since I last posted. I wanted to write about all sorts of things. Like successfully installing R for OpenSolaris using packages. Maybe about the uncertain future for OpenSolaris, now that Oracle pwns that. Maybe about coffee (see… Continue

Learning from Failure, or There Goes My Golden Week Vacation

As a systems architect, I must concern myself with project management issues. Every now and then, I like to check my head and reread a wonderful blog post from Reg Braithwaite on What I've learned from failure. I printed up a copy and keep it in my notebook so that I can pull it out and read it on my train ride.

This is a timely topic for me as I now… Continue

More On Freedom (the cud-chewing continues)

Hm... On my previous post on Freedom, Cameron Souza left a comment the end that got me thinking more on this topic, and about why it is on my mind lately.

About 3 weeks ago, I was browsing a post on security guru Bruce Schneier's blog on the topic of… Continue

ROFL. I've had plenty of pin drop moments. I usually get embarrassed and then angry, which results in random insults hurled at the audience.

Hi Brooke. Did your View Search Hokkaido presentation in Kyoto go well? How are things on the northern isle?

Mahalo! Kyoto is one of my favorite cities. Are you there for work or vacation?

Nope...caught that one slow trolling plugs in mid-December. Let me know if you need a guide...I've been fishing with the same guy (Todd Hannah) for 20+ years and he knows that river better than anyone I've ever met. I've fished Salmon and Steelhead with him and had great luck with both. In fact, now that I think about it, he also put us onto some huge (6 foot plus!) Sturgeon one year when the river was blown out by a storm.

Ahh...Pidgin is no problem. My in-laws are all Filipino and most of them speak Ilokano unless they are speaking directly to me. I understand some of it but I still have a long way to go.

I just noticed your comment about shipping my vehicle. We actually arrived here on Tuesday evening of this week to a bunch of family members wielding tuberose leis. I've been here many times but that was the first time I've been received like that -- it was very nice :). Now I'm certainly going to have to be careful not to get fat as my in-laws are continuously amazed that I like their food so they are always trying to test me out. Maybe after I've been here long enough I'll even figure out what they are saying!

I was stoked to know somebody can relate to my Vic-20. I think it changed my life! I still have it. I hope to someday use it as a prop in my personal remembrance of the early days of technology. In the day I lusted at Heathkit; they had a computer (build it yourself) that ran C/PM, but I couldn't afford it.
