Clark is an 8 week old medium hair tabby that joined our family on 5/31. Smokey is about 8 years old now, and Pewter is 10.  It’s fun to have a kitten in the house again.  As the older two aren’t very adept at adjusting to strangers Clark is going to be my office cat […]

June 4, 2013 Today was strange… spending 9 hours and 23 minutes on an airplane, followed by a 60 minutes to run from one end of the airport (Gate E) to the other (literally Gate B35) at AMS, and clear Customs.  It was a challenge, made it with about seven minutes to spare. Then a […]

We just closed the CFP for Ruby on Ales.  I’m actively working on getting registration open for the Los Angeles Ruby Conference.  We are recording HTML 5.tx in Austin, Texas on February […]
