Did not think my day would consist of me reading NIST 800-63-2 about e-authentication just to figure out what crypto methods I can use on my KDC so that I can meet or exceed some requirements at work.

The document is actually fairly well written. Here is to hoping I don't have to read all 100+ pages to accomplish my goals for the day.

Nothing like a little light reading to start the day.

This should be a good opportunity to do some rarer Rush Material, says guitarist Alex Lifeson

I use iSSH on iOS. It took forever to find one that was usable.

Why are they using a clover trail+ processor? I don't get it. Bay trail has better performance from both the CPU and the GPU. It also has better battery life. I thought that android was already available and partially optimized for bay trail with the recent work done by Intel.

Went ahead an purchased an Amazon FireTV once that I saw that +Plex is already available for it. Looking forward to possibly getting rid of my WDTV Live for local media viewing. Not that the WDTV Live is bad but lately it has been acting quite slow. I think I can blame that on the YouTube app.

I've been generally unhappy with STBs mostly because they lack support for mounting network based file systems. I hate UPNP based video streaming as it almost always transcodes everything to a lower bitrate. My current solution to a set top box? I have a Macbook pro connected to my tv with the lid closed. Pricey, but good.

Met this nice lady at the farmers market on Saturday! Look at the size of that turnip! Well I think it is a turnip.

Found out that +Imagine Dragons is going to be playing at EMC World. Never listened to any of their music. Giving them a listen to now via +Spotify to see if I should even go to the customer appreciation party or do something else.

Heh, maybe they're the new Tech Show band. They opened for Train at the closing party for VMWorld last year.

Or now that I think about I guess that just means someone at EMC is a fan.

Wow. The physics behind curling is pretty damn cool and apparently a mystery.

So I am on vacation with the family in Orlando Florida this week and I have noticed something that disturbs me. I have seen a few parents smoking around their children. In some cases with what looks like a 3 or 4 year old in the car with them. I had to restrain myself more than a few times from walking over and giving those people a talk about their kids health.

We forget how liberal Gainesville is until we leave. Although admittedly we live in an even more liberal microcosm at UF. You don't notice it until you leave it.

Story
Tagline
Father, gadget and technology obsessed nerd, Rush fan
Introduction
I live my life as an open book. Those that know me, know that I do not filter my thoughts. I say what I think and usually actually mean it.

I am a huge fan of technology in general. I have been using a PC of some sort since I was around 10 years old. My current job has me playing the role of a system architect where I get to design and maintain large scalable systems using virtualization such as VMware and Xen.

I am gadget obsessed which currently is manifesting itself in the forms of tablets and cell phones. My friends and family usually turn to me to help them in deciding which gadgets to get next.

I am a recent father of two that loves his kids and his wife. I am still learning my way around my crazy kids. As an engineer, I have a hard time dealing with some of the things that my kids do but I can at least understand what they are doing and keep myself somewhat sane.
