Who you are is a function of what you do; your actions determine your character because there is no other output of your character. People who do bad things are by definition bad people; people who do good things are good people. So being careful about what you do is really about being careful about […]

The Other Side of the Podium

When I was at ParaSoft, I did a number of trainings when I went to some company and showed them how to use whatever product they had purchased. We did one-day tutorials all the way up to five-day classes, where we would use our product with the customer’s code. This week I am attending a […]

Triumphant Return

So, I was finally home for a few hours this weekend and I plugged us back into the internets, so TCB and Exploded Clown are back online. Where have I been, you ask? What have I been doing? It’s a long story, but here it is. I was in Dallas for most of last week, […]

Whose $90?

So as I mentioned before, I’m in Denver this week going to a few customer sites. My luggage, however, is not in Denver, and the clothes contained therein are not going to customer sites with me. The flight from SNA to PHX was fine, if a little bumpy on the landing. I make it a […]
