  • Practice what you preach

    August 25, 2016

    When I first joined EMC (Over two months ago! wow…), I have to say I was honestly irritated with the “buy vs build” argument. Yeah VCE and tightly designed systems are awesome and all, but that’s not for me – I know how to put this stuff together, why do I need you?  As a […]

  • Transformation

    August 7, 2016

    August 17, 2012

    After a 3 year love affair with Nokia (read: Symbian and Maemo) I’m back to Android – more specifically Cyanogenmod 9. My much loved N900 and N8 are collecting dust.

    August 16, 2012

    Happy birthday Debian! I’ve been using Debian for nearly 5 years and haven’t looked back.

    RE: app.net Have you heard of (insert blog engine here) and RSS? Seems pretty open to me…
