Headed West to WWDC

Friday, June 8th, 2007

Tomorrow I head out to California for my first visit to WWDC, which runs all next week. I’ll have the opportunity while I’m there to get to speak to quite a few Mac developers, of course, and am also looking forward to attending more than a few sessions to increase my practical and background knowledge […]

Welcome to Texas

So there I am, standing in the bathroom yesterday morning, brushing my teeth and preparing to take a shower, when I see this crawl up out of the sink drain:Welcome to Texas, indeed!

On The Road Again

Friday, May 11th, 2007

On top of that, I’m looking forward to getting some time with Jeff Questad, another sales rep of ours based in Austin.I have a few other business matters to attend to down there, and am looking forward to some personal time catching up with my old friend, Lee Robin, of Computer NERDZ! I haven’t seen Lee in probably 4 or 5 years, and am eagerly looking forward to visiting with him and his family.More either from the road or once I’m back in New Hampshire, I’m sure.

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2007

It’s such a habit it almost rolls off the tongue without me thinking about it now, and it goes something like this: “Hey, happy new year, but I can’t talk now because I’m in a mad rush to get the last minute prep together for Macworld Expo.”… Braun and Chuck LaTournous to judge this fabulous event.Thursday, 1/11, 6pm: Mac Podcaster Meeting at the Apple Store with the likes of Adam Christianson, Andy Ihnatko, Leo Laporte, and more.

Going off grid…

Thursday, November 30th, 2006

In addition to being excited about all that lies before us (including the simple idea of spending a much-needed week together!), I’m a bit anxious…. I’m just a little fearful that I might get the DTs and start shaking every time I walk past a web-enabled machine on the boat!See you on the flip side…
