I am roughly half done my vacation already for this nice little winter break. Went in with no solid plans and so far it’s really shown. I haven’t done much and now the guilt starts to set in around not doing anything with my time. Spent most of the first couple of days napping, catching […]

Years ago I picked up a game called FPS Baseball. I have always been into stats and sports and this game changed things for me. I guess I could go even further back and look at Baseball Stars for the NES where I was first really getting into stats and I was just entering my […]

The year continues to be cruel to Erin and I. We already lost one of our dogs back in August when we lost Sam and tonight we lost our other dog Bella. We’re both big softies so this is extremely hard for us. It’s never an easy decision to have to let your pet go. […]

Every year I take a couple of weeks off over Christmas time. it allows me to recharge and I often try to use it to learn something, develop something, or sometimes, waste it away literally doing nothing.

There hasn’t been much on the go this week. I’ve been focused on getting a few things sorted out for work before my vacation arrives. I have a few tasks coming up including a couple of surprise ones I need to squeeze in before I leave for my vacation time. Most of my learning has […]

After having a few weeks of really digging into some new stuff, I kind of tapered off as of late. Work got busy so focused on that for a few evenings and just need to get myself back into things. I have some Symfony to keep going with and I was checking out a web […]

I am a huge fan of simulation type games. I have spent countless hours in various games out there but one I never did play was the original Dwarf Fortress. The old ascii graphics I just couldn’t get over. This week it releases on Steam with some cute pixel graphics so I definitely purchased it. […]

Losing Weight Sucks

Categories: Personal

For someone that just likes food, losing weight sucks. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve tried to lose weight but I’m gearing up for yet another attempt. I HATE having my picture taken. I have very few pictures of myself as I just hate seeing myself in them. I see them and think […]

The newest World of Warcraft expansion launched this week. I keep telling myself I am done playing the game but I always get sucked in by new expansion to see how they are. This happened again. I have barely played the game in months and if I look at the last year it’s even less […]
