Internet/Computer Classics Dieing off…

Yesterday I retweeted a post by ReadWriteWeb concerning Yahoo’s announcement that they are closing down GeoCities this year. This was particularly sad news for me because GeoCities was where my first website was hosted. Within a day of getting the internet at home for the first time (On December 26th, Read more…

GMail Down

In the latest in my ongoing series of Major websites experiencing outages, GMail has been down for at least the last hour. Google’s Mail service is excellent and over all I’ve always been pleased with it. Their servers are redundant, I don’t have problems with lost email messages, and the Read more…

Nick.Pro Finally in control

I’ve finally gotten around to moving my site onto nick.pro and off of capslog.info (which should now redirect to nick.pro).  I’ve long wanted to focus on this more professional domain name, so I’m very much looking forward to improving this site as time goes on. Also in the process, I’ve Read more…

It’s not Brain Surgery

Brain Surgery Often when someone wants to indicate that a task doesn't take a genious, they relate the task to one of two professions, and so two common phrases you will hear on a regular basis are "Hey, it's not Rocket Science" and similarly "Hey, it's not Brain Surgery." This seems a strange way to start a blog post, but trust me, you'll understand in a moment. (more…)

Google Developer Day 2007

The Main Stage This thursday I went over to my second Tech Conference since moving to the San Francisco Bay area, the first being MacWorld back in January, this time, I went to the San Jose convention Center for the 2nd annual Google Developer Day. I must say I hope that Google's CEO tells the Apple Board of Directors a thing or two about how to hold a Tech Conference. Google Developer Day 2007 was fantastic fun, and Google made a lot of fantastic announcements just for developers, several of which I'm going to start implementing in my work at Justia. (more…)

2006 – A Nick Oddity

Every New Years Eve I find myself counting down the seconds until the next year hoping in my heart that the next year is better then the last. This year however I found New Years Eve very odd, because I cannot possibly imagine 2007 being as amazing as 2006 was, and I don't even want 2007 to be better then 2006, I just want it to be more of the same.

Life Changes

My last blog post before this one was in August and things have definitely changed in the lives of Barbara and I since then. The biggest change (really the only change but it has effected so much of my life it's really a category rather then an item) is that I got a new job. I now work as a programmer for Justia Inc. Justia is a company that, among other things, provides websites for lawyers and law firms. The company is based in Palo Alto, California (in Silicon Valley). As such this change of a new job also means that we no longer live with my parents in Texas but are now Californians. We have a small, one bedroom apartment in Mountain View, California a few minutes drive from the Googleplex. Those of you who know us best most likely know this by now, but I felt it was important to update my blog and let people know about these changes. Yesterday (December 18th) marked the 2 month (October 18th) anniversary of the day we moved into our new home here in California. (more…)

Testimony

I am applying for a job in Colorado Springs with the C&MA and they require with job applications that you send in a copy of your testimony. As this seems to me to be a good thing to keep a record of and I have never taken the opportunity to write out my testimony before, I thought that I should post a copy of my testimony here so that I can always get it back later, and so that anyone else who cares to read my testimony can read it as well.
