Quote of the Day
If you go parachuting, and your parachute doesn't open, and you friends are all watching you fall, I think a funny gag would be to pretend you were swimming.

Tokyo JapanSunday 09th 2007f December 2007 08:53:52 PM

For work I am traveling to Tokyo, Japan.

a bit of back log here since it was such a long trip over. I left my house around 5am on Saturday morning via airport van. My first flight was Logan to Dulles which was cake. Your barely in the air before you start coming down again. Switched terminals there and while eating a muffin noticed they had a money exchange. Got that out of the way Figuring it would be easier to exchange with someone who spoke English.

Now the long flight..

Are you free for dinner ~Dec. 28-31?Friday 23rd 2007f November 2007 09:41:19 PM

Hi everyone! Nikki & I will be making a trip to MA during Dec.26th-Jan 1st. The first stop will be in Cheshire to see my parents. Then, I would love to meet up with you all & have you meet Nikki. I was thinking we could all get together at a classic New England style restaurant for dinner or something like that. I'm not sure where you all will be but I'm willing to have a few dinners in various places around Mass to see you all.

Apple talks the talk but doesn't walk the walkSaturday 24th 2007f March 2007 06:17:43 PM
Posted by - Bill Peck

I want to like apple, I really do. But I just don't see them as much better than Microsoft. Apple has a bigger control problem than even Microsoft.

Apple is failing in Open Source and Free Software. It fails to understand the movement, its principles, and how to leverage it to make money. This would not be such an issue if Apple had not based their operating system OS X on Free Software in the form of NeXT/FreeBSD. Since OS X has taken its place amongst the other flavors of UNIX it is expected to behave as a responsible citizen in this community.

Hello Everyone,

We are finally building our addition onto the house. Lots of excitement! And lots to cooridinate! I have a short video clip of them digging out the foundation. Gregory thought it was pretty cool as you will hear from the video.

Gregory and Cammie playing Doctor Together. First Cammie is the Doctor checking Gregory. Luckily Gregory doesn't have bugs in his ears. Then Gregory is the Doctor but Cammie makes sure Gregory does things right. ;-)

Mug What?Thursday 01st 2006f June 2006 02:29:18 PM
Posted by - Bill Peck

So Red Hat is trying some new ideas... and one of them is a project called Mug Shot. The idea is to link together lots of different applications you use online. Probably easiest way to explain is to give an example:

I like some music on Creative Commons. My Friend Matt might have a song that he got through iTunes, and Rob might have the same song but he bought it through Yahoo music. These services normally don't work together nor do they really want to.
