Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

RE: No More Kids

I'm happy to report the procedure I had done yesterday was quick and relatively painless. I was definitely disappointed to hear from the Doctor that I wouldn't be getting any pain-killers, but I also figured that might be a good thing (maybe I wouldn't need them). The first couple of hours with a frozen bag of veggies wasn't bad. Then I think the combination of a bad cough and no more veggies did me in. I was in some pretty good pain yesterday afternoon, but after getting some frozen peas from the grocery store, I definitely felt better.

This morning I woke up with pain - in an unexpected location. It's on both sides, but along my inner wasteline. I'm guessing this is from all the coughing and is the same pain I would experience if I were lifting over 10 pounds. Oh well, hopefully I'll be pain-free tomorrow.

RE: Going to work for Microsoft

You know you're good when your April Fool's joke gets picked up by a major news site.

With a fair bit of attention being given to using older Web technologies to create new Net applications, Microsoft is apparently looking to make sure it is staying up to date. The company has hired Java specialist Matt Raible to help make sure that Ajax is in Visual Studio's cupboard of tools.
