Seen

Seen on Dare Obasanjo’s email signature: THINGS TO DO IF I BECOME AN EVIL OVERLORD #154I will instruct my Legions of Terror in proper search techniques. In particular, if they are searching for escapees and someone shouts, “Quick! They went that way!”, they must first ascertain the identity of this helpful informant before dashing off…

Touch Me

No, not that kind of “Touch Me”.  Touch Screens. Touch screens have been around a long time and they have been slowly integrating into our lives: PDAs, kiosks (printing your photos at Walmart, buying tickets at the movie theatre), Tablet PCs etc. It’s been more of a slow and steady evolution instead of a revolution…

Call of Duty 2 XBOX Live

[Update] Infinity Ward is close to releasing an update that will address many of the issues people are having with the XBOX Live gameplay. http://forums.xbox.com/2598446/ShowPost.aspx  Also, apparently, every XBOX 360, has 64 MB of memory on board that can be used for downloadable content or patches/updates.  It’s a very limiting amount of memory but usable. Now…

Back on the Blog

I was surprised to see how long I had gone between blog entries.  A month in fact!  By far, the longest break since I started blogging back in August 2005. My excuse is that I’ve been pretty busy ramping up and completing deliverables at work while also getting my townhouse in order and getting acquainted with the…

Battlestar Galactica

I noticed Jessica Fosler and Raymond Chen mention the new season of Battlestar Galactica which just started.  I haven’t watched the season premier (got it on tivo) but I like the show a lot even though some episodes of the second season were a bit tedious.  Not entirely sure I’m liking having Starbuck as a woman…

Microsoft Office Communicator

Happy New Year!  I’m looking forward to 2006 — I’ll have my relocation related distractions out of the way and will really be able to dig in to my new job at Microsoft.  I’m really excited about the Orcas release, the approach we are taking with planning that release, my project (Cider Extensibility), and the…

Moving from San Diego to Seattle…

As part of taking a job at Microsoft, I left my job with Intuit (great company), sold my house and left San Diego.  It was a really tough decision but a combination of professional and personal factors ultimately made me choose to go and so far it feels like the right decision.  What is it…

Second Week at Microsoft

After my second week at Microsoft (first week here), I can say that I’m slowly settling in.  I have my desktop and laptop (cool Toshiba Tecra Tablet/notebook combo) setup and I’m able to build Cider.  The scripts the team already had in place to setup up the development environment sure made it easy to get…
