It is widely believed that coding, much like writing music, is best left to the twenty-somethings. I’m about to try and shatter that notion. I guess it’s safe to officially announce that I am once again a full-time software developer — and loving it! I have always had a passion for software development and had been suppressing this passion for way too long.
A lot has changed since I put mind-to-algorithm, so I have a huge amount of learning to do in order to
Time To ‘Splain
A few weeks ago I started “Unfollowing” people on Twitter. The people that I “Unfollowed” were people with whom I was friends on Facebook so I knew that the majority of the information that they produced was duplicated, and I just don’t have the time to read updates twice these days. What I also knew is that there would be some backlash one people realized that I “Unfollowed” them. At last night’s Tweetup I found myself explaining this decision to more than one person who felt that I had slighted them by “Unfollowing” them. Social Networking can be so darned complicated…

Nothing again. I promise that will change starting next week.
Well, this is one way that I can lose weight…
Before last night’s Tweetup I stopped at the East Atlanta Farmers Market and picked up two loaves of bread. I love locally-produced artisan bread, and managed to have two small chunks prior to going to bed.
I woke up this morning with the plan to split the bread, freeze some, wrap some in plastic to save it, and take some in to work for breakfast. Sadly, as soon as I picked up one of the loaves I noticed that there was a stream of black ants marching to and from the bread. Dangen! I don’t know about you, but once something like this happens I cannot fathom eating the bread, so I promptly threw out the loaves.
Other than providing nourishment for anteaters, what is the purpose of the black ant in the world? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
Ich bin ein introvertierter
In one of yesterday’s comments I mentioned the “I Word,” no not “intercourse,” nor “iPod,” but rather “introvert.” Yes, it’s true I am an introvert, which probably explains why I try hard to express myself through this blog.
And for those of you partaking in tomorrow’s East Atlanta Beer Festival:
- Congratulations, it looks like the weather will be great
- Enjoy, but drink responsibly (unless you can stagger home)
