It’s a work from home day, cold outside with lots of ice. This is a pretty good accompaniment for the day.

So, cat's kind-of out of the bag. I'm leaving SAIC in a few weeks and will be working in Austin (finally) for Invodo.

This entire album sounds like 1993. Reminds me of the best of Pavement in a way.

Introduction
I live in the Austin area and manage servers for a living. Over the past year I've gotten into software development and enjoy coding in both Python and Ruby. When I'm not exerting my will over bits of silicon in steel boxes I enjoy fine beer and barbecue. Oh, and I have the cutest, smartest, funniest daughter in the world. And the best wife, too.
Bragging rights
Iraq War Veteran, spent half of the 'aughts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
