Cuteness of the Week

I don’t really intend on keeping up with the “Cuteness of the Week” theme, but a local friend just took one of the cutest pictures of a little bird ever!

Enjoy the picture of the little Gambel’s Quail

Our Wedding: Updates are on their way…

As many people already know, Lauren and I were married this past July 4th. It was quite an amazing experience that I will cherish and remember for the rest of my life! I fully intend to put pictures up and write more about it soon, but have had little time recently to organize everything and write a good, long blog post about it. It’s coming… I’ll not forget to fill everyone who couldn’t be there in on the festivities… it’ll just have to wait a few more days.

Make’s Open Source Gift Ideas

For those out there who don’t know what to get their friends or relatives for the upcoming holiday season, MAKE Magazine provides a list of popular open source projects that is filled with interesting gift ideas for the techies on your list.

The list includes everything from an open source Atmel AVR programmer, to an installer of portable open source applications for USB thumb drives, and even a home automation web interface that talks to most commercially available home automation products.

One idea that I had seen elsewhere on the internet is to burn Ubuntu or Knoppix LiveCDs for people as an added stocking stuffer. It’s relatively cheap to do that and would provide added exposure to LINUX without permanently getting rid of their current OS and data.

Happy Thanksgiving

To all my friends and family; have a happy, healthy, and safe Thanksgiving!

Lauren and I spent the day with our close friends Aaron and Jenny at their uncle’s house here in Tucson. It was a wonderful meal with Steve’s “adopted” extended family and friends; they had everything from green-bean casserole, to sweet potatoes with marshmallows, to mashed potatoes, to the required turkey. In my opinion, it was everything that Thanksgiving should be; a great time spent with those close to you.

As pointed out in one of Aaron’s blog posts, this is the season for spending lots of time in the presence of friends and family enjoying their company. So, on that note, again, have a happy and healthy start to the Holiday Season!
