G+ is saying I can claim a custom URL, but I have to add characters after my name (even though + DougFredericks hasn't been claimed as far as I can tell).  How are people handling this?  I guess I could go with + dougfredericks1, but that's not a real elegant solution.

Hi guys, just thought I'd drop you a note.  I've got a node setup in Sacramento, CA.  No other ops involved in the area as far as I can tell.  I've flashed two routers and will have a 15 dBi omni up in the attic this weekend.  I'm good with the hardware, but struggle with the software side.  Goal is to at least get an irc server on the thing, maybe with a raspberry pi.

Very cool bridge photos by +MNS Engineers

Our Pitkins Curve Bridge and Rockshed project near Big Sur on California Highway 1 is getting closer to completion. The bridge was constructed using segmental concrete construction, working inward from each end. The center keystone section should be completed very soon.

I really like the idea of this project.  It doesn't look like it'll make it to $32m, but I'm showing my support.

Google+ really needs to figure out a way for users to bookmark G+ posts, like simply making +1's on posts go to your profile like they do for external +1's.  Following a tip, I created a circle called "Bookmarks" that I share posts to, but its a wonky work-around.

#IfIHadGlass I would use it to help repair the 600,000 structurally deficient bridges in the US.

I'm not sure what the greatest album cover was, but I'm sure it is on this page.

Introduction
Hi and welcome to my Google profile. 

I am a civil engineer working the transportation field since 1992.  My work experience has included bridge design, project management, program management, staff management, and marketing of professional services.
 
I'm on the board of the South Natomas TMA (past president), heavily involved in the Sacramento Chapter of the American Public Works Association, and trying to keep up with Sacramento Metro Chamber.

I live in the fantastic Land Park neighborhood of Sacramento. I am married to the lovely Jennifer and have two wonderful kids.

Far-too-many hobbies including piano, wrenching on bicycles, low power radio/maker stuff, baseball, and the list goes on...
