  1. Another life update

    It's been a few months.

    Life sucks, pretty badly.

    In the midst of family tragedy as well as constantly feeling down, I'm in the middle of the most complicated semester of my life. For whatever reason, the credential program has been more difficult than I imagined. I'm not sure if it is the fact that the work is more constant or its just my low motivation, but I'm having incredible difficulty in working through this semester. I'm weeks behind, in both work and mentally, ...

  4. TotW 243 and 244 Winners!

    The TotW has been fairly busy since the last blog posts, with a number of votes going up and closing and thus we have two winners to announce.

    TotW 243 saw the brave competitors channel their inner Indiana or Lara Croft and go raiding some tombs. But what would they find? Treasure? Scrolls? The previous tomb raider? Six competitors set out into the dense jungle full aware that only one would come out alive. But who would it be?

    Three came back however after the first vote ...
  5. Adventures in Home Buying

    For numerous reasons my wife and I have decided to buy a new house. Home prices in the Denver metro area are pretty ridiculous with the average price being in the neighborhood of $390,000. Ouch!

    For that you can get a nice sized house that's fairly well appointed, but that has a yard you can spit across, and when you stand between your house and the neighbors you can touch them both. We currently live in an older part of the city (house built in 1949), and my yard is two or three ...
