“Tech Notes” is where I record some events and thoughts of a technical nature.

Herein, you’ll see comments about the pedantic (date formats, vanity versioning, details) and the broader scope such as ideas of combining technology to see what it enables.

I’ve worked in Ada, Autotools, Clearcase, C++, C, COBOL, CORBA, CVS, FORTRAN, Git, Go, GRPC, Hg, Java, ONC/RPC, OOP, Pascal, Python, RCS, SCCS, SOAP, SQL, Thrift, Thrift2 (fbthrift), VHDL, XML, XML-RPC, XSLT, native packaging, cross-compiling (ARM), and a bunch of other buzzwords.  Most are as functional now as the memories of a child: lessons learned, things I can draw from abstractly, but my coding was never as hardcore and strong as my colleagues, weaker now due to skill-rot.

Some friends have no interest in the tech side of things, and it tends to turn them off (dare I say “technophobe”?); for these, I have The Unusual blog. If you don’t know me personally, you probably have no reason to check there.

I’m Google-able, and vanity-search quite well.

I had to restart this blog after some lost data, and I migrate it form time to time, so history starts over sometimes…
