Today I share a picture of one of Violet’s Mothers day gifts. I have to say when I saw it I was thrilled. It’s such a sweet gift and I’m so amazed that her teach did it with all the kids in her class. I just wish Jacob had made one.

Geek Musing: Joys of Programming

I am a programmer, ever since I wrote my first basic program on the Commodore 64 when I was 6 years old, I have loved to program. I do it at work, I do it at home, j have even spent the last 4 months trying to find a way to do it productively on the go(More on that soon). Over the years the type of programming I’ve done has changed, most recently I’ve been focused primarily on web-based projects. Last week I started a new project for a client, a simple desktop application for searching an online database we have developed for a client. It’s not a complicated app, just a simple search with a basic list of results, but I couldn’t stop working on it.  It was great, over the course of a weekend I went from nothing to an application ready for testing and final tweaks.
