My first post for December! Spent the weekend absorbed in Christmas decorating and I’m pretty happy with the results. Hopefully this is the first of many great Christmas tress I’ll have in San Francisco. Besides that not much else has been going on. Chelsea play their final match in their Champions League group stage today.…

I thought I was done for November, but I found six more articles I really wanted to share! I don’t have much else to share in the way of personal details today; I’ve mostly spent the week doing shopping for Christmas decorations for the tree. I do have a few things to say about Bitcoin…

Feels good to be back to work after the holiday. I spent the weekend eating great food with Sydney’s folks at her house and finally finished the Hamilton biography I’ve been starting and stopping for ten years. I have to say the first half of his life was definitely more entertaining the second, although for…

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hopefully all of you are safely with your family or friends and ready to enjoy the holiday. I’m trying to get this written while packing up, so I’ll keep it short. The week has been busy on the production side of things and equally busy in the news. We’ll most likely be…

Originally this post was supposed to have photos from a trip to the MOMA this weekend, but considering we didn’t finish making breakfast until 2pm today, it’ll have to wait for tomorrow. Instead, we watched Chelsea thump West Brom 4-0 in the Premier League with a beautiful assist from Alvaro Morata leading to an Eden…

Finishing three days of Scala training today. I’ve been mostly writing Ruby for a few months now so it’s nice to have gotten the refresher on Scala topics. No language is perfect, but I have to say I’d take Scala every day over Java if given the choice. Readability is just on another level when…

Last night Sydney and I celebrated our one year anniversary. It was a great night; we had an early dinner at the Cliff House, caught the sunset, then went to see Aladdin at the Orpheum. They’ve changed the story of Aladdin a fair amount to fit a less cartoonish interpretation, replacing the tiger and monkey…

This year will hold the record as the most disorganized Halloween ever. Our famous workplace Halloween event was renamed “Fall Festival” this year for reasons completely unknown causing many of us to not even know it was happening. Great success. Likewise, I’ve noticed maybe 5 merchants with a few lazily set-up decorations with the vast…

First post since getting back from Disneyland and Phoenix last weekend. Of course, two weeks so packed with activity were guaranteed to make me sick and here I am. Luckily, I think I’ve finally turned the corner in time for this weekend. There’s some excitement going on this weekend; Sydney and I will be down…
