  • Well, that was an eventful day!

    *whew* I did a bunch of things yesterday. We took our kindergärtner to her first Friday at her new school (and were about 10 minutes tardy. oops).

  • A (round-about) story about Jeffry P. Bezos

    The following is what i wrote on “” about the boss. I thought it was worth keeping in my own archives, since it’s actually a story about my life as it pertains to Mr. Bezos. Back a few years ago, I was taking some classes down in Edmonds. The one I’m thinking of in particular […]

  • New pre-release of the maxdb<->mysql bi-directional synchronization manager code
