We turned a work trip to Seattle into a mini vacation. I got a ton of pics from the Star Wars Costume exhibit at the EMP Museum!

That will be sweet! Once you're done with that be sure to add in gun turrets for extra security.

Screwing around on my last day working at the university. We tried to install Hannah Montana Linux on my bosses computer but didn't get it working.

Story
Tagline
OpenStack developer at Rackspace with a love for Python, Django, and great beer.
Introduction
I am a self taught Python and Django developer, server administrator for a few people, and run a tutorial site to attempt to deduplicate the amount of work programmers and sysadmins do every day.  I am a huge believer in teaching people, without ever talking down to them.  I am also a huge believer in getting computers into children's hands as soon as possible.  To that end, I would like to be a professor some day, but for now, my tutorial site fills that need. Never hesitate to email me with a question or comment; I'm always looking to help others and improve myself!
