Use Synergy To Clean Up Your Desk

Synergy is one of those DotCom era buzzwords that you still occasionally hear from an out of touch executive giving a bad presentation. Synergy also happens to be a piece of software that has significantly contributed to the clean up of my desk here at work.

It’s Been Grand, Dear Rose

Shortly after my wife and I started dating so many years ago, we went to dinner with her family at a quiet little mexican restaurant at the corner of West Ave and NW Military called La Rosita. The owner was a strange man named Fred. Fred had Woo. What I mean by that was that […]

It’s Bugaboo Time

Strollers are not a very “manly” thing to be excited about and so it is with a heavy heart that I have to admit that I am currently geeking out over one of our most recent purchases, a Bugaboo Bee. My wife and I have 2 children, and over the course of their lives we […]

I Just Had Some Sushi

An Experiment Gone Wrong

Having kids is a daily challenge. Most things you can get through by counting to 10 and taking a few deep breaths. On occasion, something happens that is a little more difficult to get through. Rewind to yesterday. My 4 yr old son decided to conduct a science experiment. I haven’t concluded if this was […]


Bring On The Lakers

I really scaled back all my sports posts because I realized that I don’t really have anything interesting or unique to stay on the topic and I really come off as a blatant Spurs homer, which I am. I did want to take a moment to give the Spurs a shout out for showing up […]


Goodbye Vista

I’ve been a staunch supporter of Windows Vista since well before release. I’ve used it for well over a year and defended it’s use for a long time before arriving at this conclusion. That changes today. As Microsoft would say, my support has gone EOL. For you non-techs out there, EOL stands for End of […]
