I saw this on my way to work Monday and snapped it: Wow! .00 is... like... FREE! (The gas station is being renovated and they've put in a zero price for some reason... very eye-catching tho'!)

I can has cat show?

January 10, 2008 ·

You've always wanted to know what I really do at weekends? Here's a great little interview on Geek Entertainment TV that was filmed at a local cat show... My wife is one of the judges shown in the opening sequence and, yes, I know everyone they interview and most of the cats they feature as well :)

Friday Fluff for Movie Buffs

May 12, 2006 ·

My friend Mata has created - a puzzle site where you guess movies based on cartoon versions of posters or artwork. And you can submit new puzzles yourself too! Jay & I got through the first 26 cleanly. We couldn't figure out 27. (We could figure out lots of the ones that followed - there are around 90 puzzles already!) Have fun!

Fluff: 10x4 Meme

April 05, 2006 ·

Since Jeff Houser isn't tagging anyone for this, I figured I'd offer up my answers to this meme: Four jobs I have had in my life (the most recent four-ish):
  1. Programming Research - Senior Consultant / Development Group Manager
  2. Vodafone - Senior Software Engineer
  3. I S Solutions - Senior Consultant / Software Development Manager
  4. Macromedia / Adobe - Senior Architect / Senior Computer Scientist
Four movies I watch over and over:
  1. Bladerunner
  2. Nosferatu (the Werner Herzog version)
  3. Princess Bride
  4. Repulsion (Roman Polanski)
Four places I have lived (well, three or six depending on how you read it):
  1. Northern Ireland (Ballymena, Coleraine)
  2. England (Loxwood, Farnborough)
  3. California (Oakland, Castro Valley)
Four TV shows I love to watch:
  1. Law & Order (all variants)
  2. C.S.I. (all variants)
  3. Criminal Minds
  4. Crossing Jordan
Spot a pattern there? Four places I have been on vacation:
  1. California (before I lived there)
  2. Zermatt, Switzerland (great skiing in the shadow of the Matterhorn)
  3. Dominican Republic
  4. Greece (well, one of the Greek islands)
Four websites I visit daily (I guess I'm very functional about my web usage?):
  1. An Architect's View (keeping track of comments and posting new entries)
  2. Macromedia and Adobe (lots of useful information for my day-to-day job)
  3. Gmail
  4. SpamCop
Four of my favorite foods:
  1. Curry
  2. Sushi
  3. Grits (but it's hard to find good grits!)
  4. Donuts (Krispy Kreme, please!)
Four foods I dislike (I can only think of three things):
  1. Peanut Butter
  2. Semolina (as a dessert, which is what it is in England)
  3. Beetroot aka Beets
Four places I would rather be right now: Hmm, tricky, like Jeff I'm pretty darned happy where I am... I love working at Adobe, I love living in the Bay Area. Four friends I have tagged to do this: no one - I'm taking Jeff's approach to spreading this voluntarily via blogs!

Waterfall 2006

February 19, 2006 ·

The Waterfall 2006 conference website is a biting piece of satire, that takes pot-shots at a number of luminaries in the industry:
After years of being disparaged by some in the software development community, the waterfall process is back with a vengeance. You've always known a good waterfall-based process is the right way to develop software projects. Come to the Waterfall 2006 conference and see how a sequential development process can benefit your next project.
I particularly like the Kent Beck session on wordUnit that advocates "Document-Driven Documentation"... Thans to Jim Collins for sending me the link...
