Where is Dan?

I spread this news on Twitter and Facebook months ago but thought it was about time to do the same thing here. Wednesday, May 1st was my last day as an employee of Telligent . I worked for Telligent for over six years and I loved every minute of it…

Finished Rifle Project 2 – Turk(ed) Mauser

Finished Rifle Project 2 – Turk(ed) Mauser

I can’t believe it has been over 3 years since I finished my first rifle. Times slips away too quickly. The lapse could have something to do with spring of 2006 being when Dawn found out she was pregnant with Tucker. We spent that summer and fall…

What are people saying about me?

What are people saying about me?

I was catching up on some blog posts this evening and one of them sparked an interest in sharing. Earlier this year a couple of other devs and I were gathered around talking to Jeff Blankenburg while he was cleaning up after doing a presentation…

Now with a picture

I finally got around to adding a picture of me to this blog, thanks to some prodding (you know who you are!). After doing so I realized that this theme is getting a little bit crowded and dated. I hate to add to my to-do list but I’m now in search of…

A picture from a former life

A picture from a former life

I found this picture a couple of days ago while looking through an old computer for files I needed to copy off of it before repaving and repurposing. This is one of the very few pictures I have of myself from my Army days. This was taken sometime…

Memorial Day cooking

Like most holidays, Memorial Day is a day for me to cook some man-food. This almost always involves the grill and my smoker. I’ve been making some good baby back ribs for a couple of years thanks to my buddy Andy and his web site Andy’s Ribs . Ouch…
