POD: Coding on a Tablet


After dropping Melissa and Violet off at the Science Centre for a play day with a bunch of her friends, I decided to run a little experiment. I headed to a Starbucks with just my Cell Phone and Tablet to see how much code I could write. Though I came up a bit short of my goals, I did find it a successful day.

POD: Preparing to Celebrate


Today we have a picture of our dinner table after Melissa and I (Well mostly Melissa) finished setting it up for our Valentines dinner. I love sharing these family moments with Melissa and the kids.

POD: School House Art


Today was Parent Teacher interviews at the kid’s school and while I do find talking tot he teachers enlightening, I have another reason for attending. I like to capture pictures of the kids work off the class room walls. This year that seems to be only Violet’s work in her kindergarten class. Still I managed to put together a collage from her different winter themed works of art. .

POD: Night out with the kids


Today after the kids skating lessons we headed to Montana’s for a special dinner. We don’t go out just the three of us that often, so it was nice.

POD: Evening Coffee


This evening after the kiddies were tucked in their beds, I ran some errands and took some time to have a coffee with my mom. It was nice to have a few minutes just chatting with her about our busy lives.

POD: Allergy testing


Today we headed to the doctors office to get Jacob tested for allergies. This is Jacobs second time being tested, and thankfully he doesn’t have any allergies. (Jacobs first Test) Of course this makes me think that we really need to get Violet a second test, just to confirm that she has out grown her Peanut allergy.

POD: A Geek Desk

Back in October I shared a picture of my desk, with an explosion of screens(POD: My Work Desktop). It represented an extreme that I wished for, but didn’t have the technology to support. To add insult to it I had the spare monitor I used with my Nieces laptop that day sitting on my desk, but I had no computer to power it. Today that changed. Today I decided that the old laptop with windows 10 wasn’t up to being lugged around to coffee shops. It still works when it has a nice stable home, but we didn’t have a good place for it at our place, so I thought, why not set it up on my desk at work. After a bit of rejiggering my desk I had it hooked up to the spare monitory (and connected with Synergy), to form my 4 screen desktop. I through my Tablet in on the left because I could.

Of course I’m not sure how well this set up will work, it is an older laptop, but I’m excited to give it a try, it will also getting me working with windows 10 on a daily basis, so that I’ll know when and if the technical previews are ready to be installed on my main computers.

POD: After Practice Photo

Today was practice day, both kids were on the ice early in the morning. Thankfully not that early, the first practice started at 8. Of course the best part of the early morning practices is that you are done by ten and are free to do what every you want to do for the rest of the day.

POD: Hockey Action


Today we have a picture, well pictures, I took at Jacobs hockey game. Google’s AutoAwesome just put a few of my action shots together to form a pano of the game. My question for you is how many Jacobs are there in today’s picture of the day?

POD: Coding Fuel

One of the things I like about my work is the variety, though on some days its less stimulating than others. For example today was spent installing the office on over a dozen computers. Time consuming but not very challenging. So tonight when I got home I decided put a personal project on the fast track and today’s picture of the day is the supplies I got to fuel my evening of coding. I don’t want to say what I’m working on just yet, but I hope to soon. What I will say is that when it is done I will finally have something that I’ve written that I use everyday.
