My co-worker Biruh snapped this adorable picture of me, my wife and my other co-worker, Dave. The party was a lot of fun.

Some Updates

5 October, 2010 (08:09) | Erlang, Family, Gaming, Life In General, Lynn, Tech, Uncategorized, Work | By: Brian

But the short list: Moved to Virginia with Lynn Attempting to sell the Condo in DE Got a software engineering job with Carr Astronautics Proposed to Lynn at Great Falls National Park in NoVA Started planning the wedding [...]

Learning Some Stuff

7 April, 2010 (23:20) | Erlang, Work | By: Brian

Lately I’ve been thinking about my career and where I want to take it. Eventually I want to be leading teams instead of working for one, and I want to get back to more science and research stuff. Toward those ends I’ve been educating myself in a few ways and changing how I approach my [...]

In Which another site is launched

19 November, 2009 (09:58) | Life In General, Work | By: Brian

We just launched another contest site, the third in about as many weeks: Sign up for a chance to get tickets to the Winter Classic, an outdoor NHL game played in Boston. I didn’t do any actual coding, but I did some project planning and management for it. We’re currently running a contest for [...]

Old Business

24 January, 2009 (10:33) | Family, Hockey, Life In General, Lynn, Music, Work | By: Brian

Rumors of the death of my blog have been greatly exaggerated! Well, maybe not greatly. One of my new year’s resolutions was “to blog more,” and by “blog more,” I really mean “start blogging again.” But, the after-holiday schedule was almost as bad as the whilst-holidaying schedule. Now things have seemed to calm down a [...]

Massanutten Was Incredible

13 May, 2008 (16:15) | Family, Life In General, Work | By: Brian

Last night I got back from a wonderful weekend vacation at mountain resort called Massanutten near McGaheysville, VA. There’s a range of ridge-like mountains in the middle of the Shenandoah valley, and this resort is nestled into a curved out half crater, like a giant U-shaped mountain. Friday morning I took care of some job [...]

Will Code For Food

7 May, 2008 (12:45) | Life In General, Work | By: Brian

As of around 10am this morning another co-worker and I were laid off from Solstice Software. I’m probably not allowed to discuss why in a public setting, but they had to reduce headcount for financial reasons, and we were let go. So, if you have any Java coding you need done, say around the house [...]

Two Great Comics Today

4 February, 2008 (23:12) | Baseball, Gaming, Grammar, Hockey, Life In General, Music, Work | By: Brian

Two of my most favorite web comics updated today with strips that struck very personal chords. The first is from XKCD, the stick-figure web comic about romance, sarcasm, math and language. All things that I have an interest in. The archive is full of fantastic math and language nerd humor. I’ve dated a couple women [...]

End of Summer Season

17 September, 2007 (22:14) | Hockey, Life In General, WoW, Work | By: Brian

The end of the Bearcats’ Pond season came to an end tonight. We played our first and only playoff game and lost 2-1. It was close and fun and exciting, but we couldn’t turn it in the end. We had a terrible team skillwise, but had a lot of fun anyway and that’s what really [...]

Updated Schedule and Results

3 April, 2007 (16:16) | Baseball, Hockey, Life In General, Work | By: Brian

Spring hockey has officially started. Mom and Paul were awesome enough to come see my first game at the U Sunday night where we steamrolled the Evil Monkeys. I got a nice assist on the first goal, a hooking minor, a nice rush up the right board and a generally good game. Last night I [...]
