Technology yet again…

Driving up Söderköpingsvägen on the way from Öland to Stockholm.  Just got my laptop out, plugged it into my iPad that is using a prepaid Telia SIM card and I’m on the internet with my laptop in the car star wars spiele downloaden.  Not a big deal today, I’ve done similar posts from 30,000 feet in the air on flights so it’s not new, but that doesn’t make stopping and appreciating it for a moment a bad thing word 2016 gratis herunterladen.  In 1988 I sat in a passenger seat of a Chevrolet Celebrity while heading to my Mother’s family ranch in Enoch Valley, Idaho, making a similar notation in a journal on a Toshiba 1200HD laptop, so amazed at the technology then, still amazed today, and totally loving the freedom it gives us schriftarten für openoffice kostenlos downloaden.

Nothing like driving around a country side with a map that shows you exactly where you are and satellite photos of the areas you are in or headed to hp scansoftware downloaden.  Nothing like looking at the images and deciding that this road looks like it gets really tiny, but does eventually reconnect, let’s take it and see 🙂  At the end of that road we did have to open a farmers gate and drive through a small part of his drive way to get back onto the main road, but it was great fun, and saw some parts of the island that your typical tourist won’t see sims 4 häuser downloaden ps4.

Now I’m going to stop this post and go work on OSOA web-site so we can launch OpenStack on Ales next week!

Sweden Adventure Day #5

June 8, 2013

Note: These are notes – I will update this post with pictures and more writing after the trip.

8ish get up, awesome getting so much sleep – feel wonderful veoh video herunterladen!

drive back through Toreboda to Fägre check out the grave yard across from Fägre Kyrka

turn on video camera – so I can do a time lapse video of the drive through Randstop, random exploring on dirt roads beyond Randstorp up and across Göta Kanal and back out to the main road then down through Vassbacken then on to Moholm, then Varing then Skövde and down around the tip of the lake through Jönköping and back up to Linköping website icon herunterladen.

On the drive between Jönköping and Linköping Cindy called from NYC, we walked through troubleshooting an issue with Wirecast and the Matrox MX02 Mini that we use for live slide streaming, and were able to get things working + she is recording and live streaming GoRuCo today… or as of this time, she should be in the last few hours anyway…

During the drive for some reason I turned off the iPad, doh… SIM is locked, I threw away the PIN code with the trash when we left Stockholm (face palm), so we went by a Telia store, waited for 40 minutes and the queue had only gone from 32 to 36 and I was holding number 42, and they closed at 2 PM, we got there at 12:40, I decided I could do without the internet and was not going to waste another hour in Sweden sitting in a tele-comm store die sims 3 herunterladen.

So we left Telia, stopped by a Willy:S grocery store and picked up some ice and a few other supplies, then we headed over to the Linköping De Kyrka, it’s amazing the way some of these churches have been built up over time programm video herunterladen kostenlos.  Dad had a great time talking a gentleman at the church (photo) but discovered he was having a hard time finding words to carry on a regular conversation in swedish wetter online kostenlos downloaden.  impressed by how much he does know, and everyone (randquists and this man) have complimented him on his swedish abilities.

Left the church found Hotell Stanga with GPS, since no internet 🙁

checked in, plugged in everything since I failed to do so last night in Mariestead, luckily not fully charging everything didn’t bite me today studienbescheinigung herunterladen uni bielefeld.

after 90 minutes at the hotel plugging in and trying to figure out why my MBP wouldn’t connect to the third hotel wifi … I finally punted and we went to McDonald’s for dinner… yea I know why would you go to McDonalds apple music album herunterladen?  Well we wanted to see what prices were like in comparison to the US and how the menu differed, other than the language menu felt pretty much the sam zapfino schrift kostenlos downloaden.  Although a double cheese burger was 20 sek, this is the same double cheeseburger I get in Bend for $1.29.  As I right this the conversion from SEK to USD is: 1 SEK  = .15 USD, so that double cheeseburger cost me $3.03, ouch herunterladen!  granted 12.5% of that is effectively a tax, but still more expensive.

Ok after dinner back to the hotel, we’ll be getting up tomorrow and looking for the place dad lived in here in Linköping for 11 1/2 months of his mission 50 years ago privates facebook video downloaden.  Then checking out Gamla Linköping or the old village portion of town and then heading further east so that we can start exploring the island of Öland probably on Monday.

Store hours are well posted here, every business has a sign (BIG) that states the hours öppet Mån-Tor 9 – 22 means open Mon-Thu 9 AM to 10 PM, Fre 9-24, Lör 10-24, Sön 10-14, or Fri 9 to Midnight, Saturday 10 to Midnight and Sunday 10 to 2 PM.

anyway… it is after 11:00 PM, I turned on a video camera aimed out the window at 9:00 PM, going to leave it running all night, so I can do a time lapse of just how light/dark it gets during the night.  Anyway I’m off for now.

 

Sweden Adventure Day #1

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 open office 2017 kostenlos vollversion deutsch.  It was a challenge, made it with about seven minutes to spare.

Then a two hour flight from AMS to ARN and we were finally on the ground at Arlanda International Airport in Sweden solidworks studentenversion kostenlos.  After picking up our bags we stepped outside to meet Madeleine Randquist.

After dinner and much conversation we returned to our hotel room about 11:30 PM in time to rest.  We’ll be meeting Madeleine in the morning for breakfast and start our first day touring the old inner city of Stockholm herunterladen.

Sweden Adventure Day #0

June 3, 2013

Today started a bit early, got up finished packing clothes, make final gear decisions, get that packed up.

Went and had breakfast with my Dad at Jake’s Diner in Bend – they have an awesome Country Biscuit breakfast, then we headed back to the house herunterladen.  Bend Cab company showed up 10 minutes early at 9:50 and we put our luggage in the cab and headed off.

Got out to RDM, you’ve seen a couple pictures on FB from their and we caught our flight to SEA font avenir download.  Got in about 1:00 PM, been here for the last four hours or so.  Spent a bit of time on the phone / LogMe In with Cindy making sure the livestream is configured properly for Goruco in New York nero kostenlos herunterladen deutsch.  She’ll be recording and live streaming that event on Saturday June 8, while I’m galavanting around Sweden.

We had lunch at Anthony’s at SEA – Dungenous Crab Toast and a caesar salad, it was good, compared to my last experience at Anthony’s in Bend herunterladen.

So we are preparing to board the flight from SEA to AMS about a 9 hour and 50 minutes flight, I think we land in Amsterdam about 1:00 PM local time on June 4 why i can't download netflix series.  Then a 90 minute layover and a 2 hour flight to ARN.

Madeleine Randquist is going to meet us at ARN and we’ll grab the rental car and head in to Stockholm proper herunterladen.  Get checked into our hotel and then have dinner with Madeleine.  So next post will be sometime tomorrow evening.

Sweden Adventure Day # -1

June 2, 2013 2:41 PM Pacific Time

Another fairly relaxed day.  Dad has been doing genealogical research on Kelli’s family line spiel erntezeit kostenlosen.  I’ve started to pack up my backpack with all of my electronics and photo/video gear.  Pictures to follow latter today, once everything is packed and ready to go app zum herunterladen von instagram videos.  We made a trip out to Best Buy to pick up a few missing cables  and a power converter so for Dad’s CPap machine as well as making sure I had the right electrical adapters for my laptop fifty shades of grey for free.

I have a power european power strip from the last time I was in Oslo, Norway for Confreaks and am taking that, because hotel rooms never have enough outlets herunterladen.

We are getting ready to grill hotdogs and veggies here, I’ll update with more photos latter.

If you are wondering why I’m putting this on my blog instead of Facebook, the reason is simple antivirus programme kostenlos herunterladen.  Here I control the data, and the backups and know that I have a copy of it, and that it won’t disappear into the vastness of Facebook’s data centers 🙂

 

 

Sweden adventure about to begin

June 1, 2013

My parents arrived at RDM yesterday I picked them up about noon, returned home, finished out the workday with my team windows downloaden.

Today I’ve booked a Volvo S80 or similar car for the 4th to the 14th, picking it up at the Arlanda airport near Stockholm.  I also booked our hotel (my father and I are making the trip) writing program for free german mac.  We’ll be staying at the Mercure Hotel Stockholm South for Tuesday and Wednesday night.

We’ll be meeting up with Madeleine Randquist to explore Stockholm safari all download left.

June 6 is the national holiday for Sweden so it should be interesting to observe the celebrations.

Looking forward to the trip.  We depart on Monday June 3 about 11:45 am, fly from RDM to SEA to AMS to ARN windows dvd player herunterladen.  The SEA to AMS flight is about 9 hours and 50 minutes.

I’m still debating on whether I should take one or two laptops.  Just my MBP 13r or also take my MBP 17 herunterladen.  The 17″ is self contained (more internal storage), but only lasts about 2 to 3 hours on battery power.  My MBP13 only has 128gb flash, but will run for 6+ hours on battery filmeen wie.  I do have a thunderbolt 1TB external for it configured with my stuff.

I’m also taking my iPad mini, and my iPhone 4s, will be turning off data on the iPhone and picking up a prepaid SIM card for the iPad microsoft excel mac kostenlos.

For photography gear I’m taking my Sony Alpha 58 with a 55-300 lens, the stock lens, and a telephoto lens.

So this is probably it for the day, but I’m going to maintain a daily log of our adventures as we go herunterladen.

 

2013 – woo hoo!

Looking back I did a pretty poor job of blogging in 2012.

So 2013 is now a week in and things are heating up.

We just closed the CFP for Ruby on Ales star wars battlefront 2 2005 kostenlos downloaden.  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 2, 2013 video downloaden aus mediathek.  It’s a single day three track conference.  Cindy Denison, James Bachman, and Joey Sisk will be recording the event, because I will be busy elsewhere…

Elsewhere…  My oldest Daughter Wendy Elizabeth Randquist is getting married on February 2, 2013 in Athens, OH herunterladen.  So that’s where I’ll be, and with any luck all of my girls will be there!

In June of 2013 my father and I are taking a journey to back to Sweden windows update herunterladen dauert ewig.  The land of my ancestry, my Great Grandfather immigrated to the United States from Sweden.  I will also be attending the Nordic Ruby conference while we are there welche filme kann man auf netflixen!

Things at AT&T are going great, I have the fortune of working with an incredible team of software engineers, most of which I’ve had the pleasure of working with before sims 2 accessories for free.  I’ll be expanding my team(s) in 2013 we’re doing some really cool work with OpenStack and are contributing to the OpenStack implementation in Fog star wars battlefront pc download for free.

Rapid Rhino RC is growing slowly, I’ve managed to get 84 subscribers so far, it will be fun to see what kind of base I can increase to in 2013 cannot download 888poker.

I put together a a little app I call “By The Numbers” inspired by feltron.com as kind of a personal glimpse into some details from 2012 herunterladen.  I figure I’ll work on it over the next 12 months and see what I can do to make it more automated.  Currently only the checkin information is data driven bts images.

2013 promises to be a great year.  I’m truly looking forward to it!

Two spaces after a period is wrong ?

kun je downloaden van soundcloud

So today i just unlearned something – or learned the reason I have been doing something for ever that is no longer appropriate.

When typing there should only be a single space after a period herunterladen. Really? A single space? Even as I’m typing this my right thumb automatically double spaces after a punctuation mark. This is actually going to take thought and effort to change geogebra 6.0 herunterladen. Read the artical below and see who and why the two space rule came into existence and why it no longer applies.

Moving on…

Yesterday was my last day as VP of Engineering for G5, I was able to transition the team over to my new Director of Engineering, Brian Ricker, who started in January metro exodus. I spent 16 months at G5 building up a team, and then having a chunk of it scatter to the winds. It was a very good experience in both management and self discovery herunterladen.

For the moment I am currently “unemployed”. It’s a short moment, and it’s not really accurate, in addition to my full-time work I also have significant involvement with the following companies:

  • Confreaks, LLC – Founder, Principal – Conference recording services
  • TechConf, LLC – Founder, Partner – Organizers of the Los Angeles Ruby Conference, and with any luck another conference latter this year, watch for an announcement apps downloaden op ipad 2.
  • NW Ruby, Inc – Founder, Director – Organizers of Ruby on Ales

So March is still going to be a busy month, on the 1st and 2nd is our 2nd annual Ruby on Ales conference in Bend, Oregon desktop uhr herunterladen.  March 14th and 15th I’ll be in Salt Lake City, Utah recording Mountain West Ruby Conference, and at the end of the month Kelli and I are headed to New York City for some vacation time and to go to Oprah’s recording of her “Life Class” with Depak Chapra kostenlose wolf spiele zum herunterladen.

In the mean time I’m finishing up the courting process with AT&T and should be joining a group there in the near future, more on that as we get it solidified raft deutsch herunterladen.

Looking forward to 2012 (although we are 1/5 the way through it) is going to be an incredible year.  O’Reilly dropped out of the RailsConf organization, so Confreaks will be working with Ruby Central in April to record RailsConf for first time audible files.  In May we’ll be returning to Los Angeles for @veganstraightedge’s second run of FarmHouse Conf.  I have three outstanding proposals for conferences in June, and if they come through I’ll be bringing someone on full-time to run the operational aspects of Confreaks action pack meine software downloaden.  July is clean, August will start up with Cascadia Ruby Conference in Seattle followed by Madison Ruby Conference in Wisconson, that’s about as far out as I have clear vision on desktop clock for free.  With the exception of Ruby Conference in October.

At TechConf, LLC we are investigating doing another conference in November, but the details are still being worked out ssl zertifikat herunterladen strato.

I’ve also started and am toying with ideas on how to make my RC hobby fund itself.  I’ve started a youtube channel for Rapid Rhino RC and am playing with some other ideas as well.

My flight is going to be boarding soon, headed to Seattle for the 10th Anniversary party of Seattle.rb, a group I’ve been fortunate enough to have some ties and involvement with for the last three years or so.

For those I worked with at G5 it’s been a good experience, and I look forward to continuing to work with many of you in different roles and projects over time.

On the family front my fourth daughter will be graduating from High School this spring, meaning four girls in college in the fall.  It’s extremely fun to see each of my daughters continue to grow and develop.  My grandsons are getting older, if you’ve watched my youtube channel you’ve seen a few of them pop up in videos here and there, it has been fantastic living in Oregon and being just 3 or 4 hours away from them.

Now I’m out of time, thanks for reading, and good luck with the balance of 2012.
