1 job down, 2 jobs to go.

OK, my one contracting job seems like it's done. Now I've just got my new full time job (going super well so far, 2nd week in) and some part time at-home contracting stuff to Roswell to work out tomorrow. And a ton of email to catch up on. Oh and I'm out of town for a week in a week. Hmmm... forgot about that. Programming conference in SLC and then visiting family for a few days. Still busy then. Oh well.

But basically, things are sweet! Light at the end up the tunnel? Can't wait for spring: take more photos, get out of the house more... yuck, cabin fever. Plus, it's my birthday at the start of April so ... 29. Seems like it'll be a good year. Get a house I hope.

Gotta go, have a good night everyone.

MacRuby

Apple has created a version of Ruby that runs on top of Objective-C.



OK, holy crap. This will be like the only non-objective-c Mac programming platform that's officially supported and hooked into Cocoa from the ground up. The future of Mac apps might just be Ruby, dropping down to Objective-C where you need the hardcore number crunching performance.

Salt Lake City

I'm going to this regional Ruby Conference in Salt Lake city the last weekend in March. I'm staying after the conference to visit with my family (I'm originally from SLC). It'll be nice to see them after 18 months. I miss my Dad and everyone else :)

image

I wish I could go to the Rails Conference in May in Portland Oregon, but that doesn't seem to be in the cards. And by the cards, I mean my credit card is already creaking from the weight of other stuff.

Mini Cooper?

Paul put this thought into my head last night...

image

They are actually much cheaper then I'd assumed. I thought they'd be $30k plus, but this one is $21k.

Have to Buy a Car

This is the car that I'd like to get. I know, I know, everyone seems to hate Scions but I like them.

image

Not that I'll get one, I'll probably just buy an old used Jetta or Camry or Civic or whatever... Need to start hauling my ass out to Amherst for work every day.
