C’mon Get Happy.

365 Days: Day 7.

Nearly 50 degrees at 10:00 p.m. in the beginning of January. How could anyone not be happy?

By the way, I get a lot of comments and questions whenever I’m seen in this shirt. People find the logo on the front to be interesting. It’s the logo for a software development company called Ximian, which was purchased by Novell a couple of years ago. I earned this shirt as one of the first beta testers of a product called Ximian Evolution (which is now Novell Evolution), a program that is much like Microsoft Outlook (and a whole lot more) except that it runs on Linux and Unix. I wear it often and I consider it a badge of geek pride.

I wish I could find a Mac fanboy shirt that I could wear. Does anyone have any suggestions where I could find one?

Happy Spring.

I know I’m tempting Mother Nature to inflict some wicked mischief upon us by writing this blog entry but I feel like taking a walk on the wild side. The National Weather Service predicts that it’ll reach into the lower 50s today and nearly 65 tomorrow. As I write it is currently 51 degrees fahrenheit. For Upstate New York in the beginning of January, this is big. Not only will winter blahs be pushed off for a while longer, but now we’ll have rapidly melting snow to flood basements and such. There’s always both sides to every equation.

I’m still on the fence as to whether this is totally due to Global Climate Change or if it’s part of a cyclic pattern in the grand scheme of things, but I tend to lean in the direction of the former.

Whatever the reason, I plan on drinking in some of this nice weather every chance I get.

The aforementioned DJ SuperCub mix has been posted. There’s one really bad segue in there that I could have edited to make it perfect, but then that wouldn’t have been an honest representation of my work.
