The time has come for me to join my wife in Pittsburgh.  A year ago, I blogged that my wife was moving to Pittsburgh because she got a job with Google.  We made the difficult decision that I would stay in Florida for two reasons: My job was pretty awesome and I wanted to take […]

Binary Bikers!

So I was watching the movie “Wild Hogs” the other day and realized, in my own nerdy way, that having a “gang” name for a friendly group of bikers is pretty damned cool. I wanted one. So I talked it over with Big Bad John. Since we’re both in the software engineering field we humorously […]
