And Then There Were 29
Today marks the beginning of my 30th trip around the sun (I'm 29 for any math challenged folks). Just so everyone knows, I plan on staying 29 for a few years, so we won't be celebrating next year this time. This birthday will be low key...eating at a local Greek restaurant with friends and family... Read More...

Assimilated Into The Collective
I've been talking about screens with Microsoft on this blog for the past couple of years; most recently I have been interviewing for a .Net Premier Field Engineer position, and I'm pleased to announce that 2 weeks and 8 hours of interviews later they have extended an offer, and I have of course...

Digweed, The Cinematics, Seattle, Horses...It's Springtime!
The weather is getting warmer, which can only mean one (of several) things: Lots of stuff to do in and around Charlotte! This coming Thursday (the 22nd) The Cinematics are playing at a local venue (they are kick arse...anyone in the area should definitely check them out, it's at Neighborhood Theatre... Read More...

Where I Used To Work -- MS Charlotte
TLC forwarded this article about Microsoft Charlotte to me earlier today...it's an interesting read, and I think a lot of folks don't realize that A) Charlotte has an MS hub, B) the MS hub here is huge, and C) is very instrumental to MS's enterprise support offerings.

Hang Up The Phone And Drive
I saw the funniest thing driving home today. I pulled up behind a soccer-mom-mobile (and SUV for anyone who has no idea what that means) which had a fairly large bumper sticker with the following text: "Drive now, talk later." The driver was, of course, yakking away on the phone the entire time I was... Read More...

First Week At The New Job -- Lovin' It
So I've been at the new gig for a week now, and so far everything is going beautifully. Even though the company is headquartered here in Charlotte (500+ employees worldwide), the office here is small...maybe 30 or so folks, evenly split between Financial/HR and geeks (infrastructure, coders, and analysts...

Recent Band Discovery -- The Cinematics
It's hard to sift through the crapola that is the music industry as of late...95% of the stuff that's out now is pure junk IMO. And who has time to go to the music store these days? Sometimes I wish I was a DJ so I could get paid to listen to music. Regardless, I've been trying to branch out some lately;... Read More...

New Year, New Job, New Beginnings
While I've known about this for a couple of weeks now, the proverbial ink dried on the contract earlier today so I'm able to officially say that I have scored an amazing position with a local marketing firm: Hawkeye | Cohesion . I will, of course, be doing mainly .Net development...what's icing on the... Read More...

Snowing In Charlotte
It's snowing like crazy in Charlotte right now...for most of the world this isn't a big deal, but it rarely snows any considerable amount here. Pictures to follow...I'm off to build a snowman with my brothers. Maybe I'll break the skis out of mothballs... Read More...

Microsoft Vista/Office/Exchange Launch In Charlotte
I will be attending the local Charlotte NC launch of Vista/Office/Exchange on the 18th of January...if anyone else in the Charlotte area will be attending, drop me a line and we'll try to meet up, or meet for lunch somewhere uptown beforehand, or snacks afterwards, or whatever. Read More...
