Now It Can Be Told

I’m very happy to announce I’ve taken a position at Comcast as a software engineer. This could have been told a couple weeks ago, but I’m always respectful about sharing work matters and will continue to be so.

I can say, at least, that I’ve learned more in the past two weeks then I have in the past year and a half at Which is a shame really. I’m going to miss everyone, and will continue to be rooting for the journalists who, in the end, make everything happen there.

The Stupidist List Of All Time

Head on over to Shannon’s to discuss the stupidity of RollingStone’s piss-poor list of The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.

No Ace? Van Halen way down at 70? Kirk Hammet (who wouldn’t EXIST without Eddie) at 11? Kurt Cobain at 12?!?!? How can he even be on the list?!?! Friggin’ stupid.

Go to Shannon’s to vent.

The VMAs sucked!

Why? Why? WHY?!?!? Why did I let myself think it would be any different then the last few years?

There needs to be a MTV2 Awards show. No – better yet – a real competitor to MTV needs to stand up. There is great music out there – and I’m sure great videos – they deserve to be seen and heard.

Johnny Cash don’t need MTV and it’s a shame that MTV missed a chance to be something more then just advertisement.

Man did it suck. It was like a car wreck. Never – never – never again!

Anyone care to tell me who is better and why? I can see a distinct difference in who is using which. But why?

It’s 2003! Ever hear of redundancy and failover?

Saying my prayers for those affected by power outage. We have not been hit here in Philly. To have a single point of failure effect so many people is unacceptable and frightening.

Swiss Cheese? Kerry continues to unimpress.

And hey – Whiz is overrated! If you come to Philly and that is too much, try Provolone or American ok? No one will look at you cross-eyed. Promise.

Good News! Looks like Retired Gen. Wesley Clark is preparing to run!
