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.

Two Finger Right Click

I just discovered that two finger right click has been added for 15" MacBook Pro machines. To enable it, go to System Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse > Trackpad. Check "Place two fingers on trackpad and click button for secondary click". Sweet - I dig this feature. Hat tip to the Parallels web site.

Now onto seeing if I can the free VMWare server to run Ubuntu side-by-side Windows XP on my HP box. If not, I'll drag out an old server and install it on there. It seems I'm in need of a build server since my other one is already being taxed by AppFuse's CruiseControl.

Fun in DC

I made it back to Denver yesterday after quite a week in DC. The trip had to be the most fun I've ever had on a business trip. This was mostly due to my partners in crime, James Goodwill and Bryan Noll. Not only are these guys kick-ass Java developers, but they keep you entertained all day long. With my bad back, the ridiculous rain, and getting lost all the time in our rental car, we had quite a trip. The tech meetup on Wednesday night at Brickskeller was awesome. Thanks to all the guys that showed up - we'll definitely do it again in July.

Next week, we're working remotely, then we're back in DC on the 10th. Wednesday, July 12th looks like a good date for the next Tech Meetup. We're open to venue suggestions, but we're also more than willing to return to Brickskeller.
