R.I.P. Cristian Charles Hammons – 1/12/1994 – 12/1/2015

I’ve been reluctant to write this post for a couple of months now, in part because I don’t usually use this forum for posting personal stuff, and in part because I didn’t know what to say.  I’ve got another post in mind, however, and I felt like I needed to give this topic the respect […]

The 9-month countdown has begun…

So, there it is.  Two little lines, and BANG! I’m going to be a dad again.  It’s been 14 years since I’ve last seen a positive pregnancy test, and I’ve got to tell you, the mixture of excitement and downright panic doesn’t really change.  True, I’ve got a lot more experience under my belt, but […]

the ubiquitous resolution post…

Obviously, with the start of the New Year, there will be a flood of posts on the blogosphere regarding resolutions to change bad behaviors and adopt new good ones; why should I be any different?  There’s lots of things I want to change about myself, and I figure I should put them out there and […]

Quick update: SQLSaturday, life in general

Not going to be a long post; I’ve got a major report due for work tomorrow, so I’m sitting at Schlotzky’s (I really should buy stock), waiting on the kids to get out. * SQLSaturday is going well. Just picked up speaker shirts and gift mugs today, and they look awesome. Sent the check to […]

Facebook, and the world I left behind… (Part 2)

Continuing in my observations of my Facebook experience, I’ve noticed something else beyond just the collision of worlds; Facebook interactions often lead to self-reflection on physical attributes. In other words, People want to see what you look like. You can’t hide physical features like on a traditional forum environment; there’s a strong pressure to post […]

Happy New Year!

So, sitting up and watching Double Impact and cruising the web, I read Andy Warren’s Thoughts for 2009, and I thought I should probably contribute my own ideas as well.  I definitely want to spend more time blogging and contributing to the user groups at large.  Obviously, I’m going to be tied up with SQL […]
