I’m Back September 29, 2006

Gosh… I didn’t realize while I was away [from the computer] for the summer that so many people would stop by.  I feel bad for not reading and responding to your posts… I will do so tomorrow.  In the mean time check out this movie review site from Ben.  I will try in the future to post notices before I go on break.  Tsk, tsk to my etiquette.

I have learned heaps this summer and look forward to sharing it with you all.  I just started an adv. multi-variable calculus class.  I was so thrilled to be in math class – it made me feel like a huge dork, but I’m a math geek and haven’t had a math class in a long time, so it’s way overdue (statistics doesn’t count).  Like being home again.      

I am going to try to find my camera battery charger, so I can post pictures from my garden and worm bin set-up.  I have the coolest postage-stamp garden.  That was one of my summer projects. 

How were your summers? 

the BBQ… and something about programming… July 4, 2006

So, umm… it’s been a while, but here I am.  It’s just been too beautiful out to blog lately (and not to mention busy as hell).  I went to Maryam and Robert Scoble’s going away/birthday party yesterday.  (Maryam started our fabulous book/movie club).  It was a great party as usual with Maryam as the host, but I’m going to miss them terribly.  On the bright side, we now have another reason to visit Cali. 🙂

I’ll save you all the gory geeky details of the party, but I just have to say I have a lot more in common with the 5-12 year old crowd than I realized.  We’d all rather be sitting around playing Zuma than socializing.  (Robert’s currently in the top 30 thanks to me).  It was fun being one of the kids for a couple hours.  Only when boys play at the Scoble residence will the Superman and Channel 9 guy toys face off and the Channel 9 guy win.  True story.

Well, I’m off to learn some C#.  My husband’s been bugging me to start writing my code in C# for ages.  Always good to have some flexibility I suppose.  Any programming biologists out there?  What do you use?  Why?

Welcome aboard, Nancy! May 25, 2006

My friend and fellow bookworm, Nancy Folsom, has started a blog.  I look forward to seeing bare her technical side as she blogs about programming, geeky technical stuff, and business.  From one newcomer to the next, welcome!
