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.

Share on LinkedIn

This is a test to see if I can get the Share on LinkedIn widget working on this site. Click below to invoke.

Share on LinkedIn

Seems to work pretty well. I like how you can select text and it'll automatically populate the summary. You can drag the link above to your toolbar in Safari and Firefox if you want to use it like a favelet.

Now I just need to get one of the designers to create a nifty little "Share on LinkedIn" icon so I can add it to all my entries by default.

New Mac Pro

It sure is cool when dreams come true. Look what arrived at the Denver office today. :-)

New Mac Pro

Update: Believe it or not, I rebooted my MacBook Pro the same minute I plugged in my Mac Pro. Upon reboot, the MBP choked and I've been looking at a gray screen with a spinning icon for most of the day. I'm soooo glad I have Time Machine. Let's hope I can do a restore on the MBP tomorrow.

Update 2: I was able to successfully build the Mac Pro from my latest MacBook Pro backup on Time Machine. Sweet! Let's see how this works:

$ echo $JAVA_OPTS
