I have always been the type of person that wanted to know how things worked.  That passion lead me to pursue a life and career around computers and IT.  I have seen a lot of things in my many years in the IT industry, and it is just getting better and better.  I am also a father, husband, blogger, amateur photographer and all around nice guy. 

I started this site because I wanted a place to share some of the interesting things that I do either day to day or in my career, or just for fun.  It is a work in progress, so please come back and see what I will add over time.

The cycle of software

Tonight I found myself looking for scripts or a software application to install to help me move some data from an old hard drive.  This drive had some pictures and documents that I wanted to keep, and no it was not backed up ... but that is another conversation.  The drive is special ... well not in that way, but that it came from an old Mac and is HFS+.  So HFS+ is not seen by Windows without a driver, but Linux can see and read the disk just fine.  Okay ... I will save all those details for another post.

So, why did this spark me to write this post.  Well, I was able to find a driver for Windows that could read HFS+ drives and I remembered using a GUI for RoboCopy.  But even if I could find it would it be up-to-date?  If not, would it run on Windows 10?  So that got me to thinking.  Windows, Mac OS, and Linux are ever evolving and so are the apps that run on them.  So is an application ever done, ever complete?

Joke for Today

An engineer, manager and programmer were driving down a steep mountain road.

The brakes failed and the car careened down the road out of control.

Half-way down the driver managed to stop the car by running it against the embankment, narrowly avoiding going over a cliff. They all got out, shaken by their narrow escape from death, but otherwise unharmed.

The manager said, “To fix this problem we need to organize a committee, have meetings and, through a process of continuous improvement, develop a solution.”

The engineer said, “No, that would take too long, and besides that method never worked before. I have my trusty pen knife here and will take apart the brake system, isolate the problem and correct it.”

The programmer said, “You’re both wrong! I think we should all push the car back up the hill and see if it happens again.”

I can not take credit for this, but it was too good not to share ... enjoy!

Construction time lapse - Day 3

It was a slow day today, but a few came out to work.
