Are The Engineers In Your Life Ignoring You? What You Can Do About It

If there’s an engineer in your life, I’m certain you often feel ignored by them. Don’t take it personally, it happens to everyone. My goal is to explain why they seem to be ignoring you and how to improve your situation. Notice I did not say gain full attention....

The Sundae Style of Management, Please Don’t Try This At Work

It’s been fairly busy at work this month and nobody wanted to help me out by writing a guest blog. In a moment of desperation, I agreed to let Sundae share her views on management. To be fair, I have worked for managers who seemed to share many of her theories....

An Engineer’s Dilemma, Beware The Time Team

When I got married, I knew my wife did not share my fascination with technology. She wouldn’t understand what I do on a daily basis and there would be communication problems. The trade-off was her love of history and her knowledge of animals. These were skills I...

  • TechnolustTechnolust
    It should come as no surprise to anyone that reads this blog that I suffer from Technolust. I certainly won’t die from it (that is unless my wife discovers how much I paid for my latest video card).  This means that although I can’t always afford it, I always want the latest and greatest in […]
  • Why I’m Proud of My WifeWhy I’m Proud of My Wife
    Most of my regular readers are probably tired of me talking about Udacity and I promise you that they only play a small part in this post. My wife has watched me spending a lot of my time studying my coursework and doing homework. She’s certainly seen how frustrated I’ve been at times. So when […]
  • Improving Our Vote Through Technology, A TSC IdeaImproving Our Vote Through Technology, A TSC Idea
    My wife dreads the arrival of Autumn. She loves the season, the brisk cold, the planning of next year’s garden but with the cold she also knows I spend more time in the shower taking long showers that completely drain our hot water system. The additional time spent in the Thought Simulation ChamberTM, gives me […]

  • A Discussion on the Writing of DocksideA Discussion on the Writing of Dockside
    I’ll admit to a huge amount of pride in the stories I’ve written. Unfortunately very few of you have read my stories. That’s not your fault. I already know what I write doesn’t appeal to everyone. Before you protest, let me explain that the way my stories are published gives me the ability to see when […]
  • 3D Printer In The Home, Useful Or Just A Toy?3D Printer In The Home, Useful Or Just A Toy?
    Last week my wife was complaining that she needed a funnel to put her spices in the spice jars. I could have shown her how to make a funnel out of paper or gone down to the store to buy her a funnel but those  solutions never occurred to me, instead I used my 3D […]
  • Suggestions On Writing Readable Product ReviewsSuggestions On Writing Readable Product Reviews
    It’s Christmas time! Then again, by the time you read this, Christmas will probably be over for the year. Fortunately for you this post only has a slight relationship to Christmas. Every year as Christmas draws near my wife asks for something related to her gardening. Couldn’t be easier, I pull up Amazon and start […]

  • Sequestration, Escrow and Congressional Cuts, An IdeaSequestration, Escrow and Congressional Cuts, An Idea
    Think about this. You’ve known for a while that your company was having some issues. Your company seems to be slipping in its market position and recently the board of directors can’t seem to agree on anything. Your manager calls you into his office to tell you that the board of directors can’t agree on […]
  • Considering What E=mc2 Means To Science FictionConsidering What E=mc2 Means To Science Fiction
    In a world where we have to struggle just to keep up with the latest in technology, it’s all too easy to take things for granted. For example, we’ve all seen Einstein’s equation, E=mc2. Most of us know the equation has something to do with mass, energy and the speed of light but it has […]
  • What Are The Odds? You’ll Enjoy Udacity StatisticsWhat Are The Odds? You’ll Enjoy Udacity Statistics
    During the Christmas and New Year’s holiday’s I was doing research on hard drive failures when I came across the white paper by Google on hard drive failures. It’s a really nice breakdown of hard drive failure statistics. A few caveats before I get into the details, the paper was presented in 2007, based on […]

  • Don’t Be Seduced by TechnologyDon’t Be Seduced by Technology
    When it comes to new technology most of us are familiar with the terms “Bleeding edge” “leading edge” and “legacy”. Bleeding edge is the latest and greatest. It’s just beginning to show up in the hands of a few tech savvy consumers. We call it bleeding because it’s a given …

  • Bank of America, I Hear You CallingBank of America, I Hear You Calling
    After reading my last post, my wife suggested I address one particular vampire. I’m doing two because I’m amazed at how long one of these vampires has been around. Over the last month both she and I have been getting daily text messages from “BOA”, “B of America” and finally …
  • Imagination, It Allows Us To See The ImpossibleImagination, It Allows Us To See The Impossible
    I did this post after creating a scene in Poser showing my wife’s fondness for old cemeteries. I’ve never understood her fascination with them but her imagination allows her to reflect on these people’s lives and their contributions to society. My imagination only covers us leaving the cemetery. Before I …
  • My Experience With Ramsay Hunt SyndromeMy Experience With Ramsay Hunt Syndrome
    This is not something I wanted to write about but as I said in Questing, I’m trying to be more open and share my experiences. I told myself that once this was not a major factor in my life I would write about it. About 8 weeks ago I had …
