Sometimes I Just Shake My Head – Security Problem

At times I have discussed security on this blog and mentioned the challenges of being secure when using M2M. However, this post has nothing to do with Consona.

I read several blogs on a regular basis for programming and SQL information. In fact, I think I’ll list the blogs I recommend in […]

I'm a Cowboy, On a Steel Horse I Ride

I got an e-mail from one of my readers asking me if something was wrong because I haven’t been posting as much as I normally do.

I love this bike.

Most people don’t believe me when I tell them, but I am actually a long distance bicyclist, or rather I […]

My primary reason for the trip was to implement Shop Floor Data Collection for an affiliate company near Los […]

Merry Christmas Everyone

I just wanted to take a moment to wish you folks a Merry Christmas and thank you for reading my ramblings.

As an adult I have to buy my own presents, so this year I bought a few things that interested me.

I bought a couple of these:

As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!

Well, Thanksgiving is just a week away. Every year about this time I remember one of the funniest episodes of any television show in history. Of course, I am referring to the WKRP in Cinncinati’s Turkey Drop and I still laugh every time I see it.

It’s a helicopter, and […]

Some are born geeks, some achieve geekiness, and some have geekiness thrust upon them….

I like to think of myself as an alpha geek. Geekiness is something to be respected, enjoyed, and promoted. Let me share some of my “geek cred” with you.

For example I….

Learned BASIC on a Radio Shack TRS80 Model 3 and I still have 5.25″ floppies which contain my early programming efforts.

Vegas Confessions with Many Pictures (Safe for Work)

Although nothing happened like the last time I went to Vegas, I still managed to get myself in few weird situations.

I stayed in Vegas until Sunday evening but during the conference I was too tired to do much else besides have dinner with co-workers afterward. However, I started venturing out Friday and […]
