I learn what I think when I read what I write.

Back from vacation; Blog-A-Day challenge

So I'm finally back from vacation. I have a HUGE backlog of email to catch up on, and a new challenge for myself: blog a day.

Sure, some of the entries will be short, but I want to keep my thoughts up-to-date and record my progress on various goals throughout the year. So here's #1 for the year!

The Right Way To Deal With The RIAA?

Several years ago, the RIAA -- Recording Industry Association of America -- launched a massive wave of lawsuits against people sharing copyrighted recordings without authorization. By the tens of thousands, "John Doe" lawsuits brought anonymous file-sharers into the spotlight, with routine settlements paid by the Does to the tune of thousands of dollars.

Celebrate with me!

I've been out of town the past few weeks, but had a milestone to celebrate.

With my weight at 224 pounds this morning, I am officially no longer "obese" according to the Body Mass Index. Still have about 30 pounds to go to get where I want to be, but there it is. I'm just overweight now! Woot!

Arthur Levin Quote

Quote of the day:

"Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.

Already Problems with Obama

President-elect Obama has chosen a HUD secretary. President-elect Obama said HUD is essential in the effort to stem the mortgage crisis, which "not only shakes the foundation of our economy, but the foundation of the American Dream."

Separate Ways

A couple nights ago I gigged a hospital corporate party with an enclave of pro musicians from around town. The organizer of the gig is a good friend of mine who is probably the best front man I've ever played with in my life. We had a bunch of tunes on the set list that featured some screeching rock classics; Separate Ways, Rock & Roll, Synchronicity II, among others.

Hello, Colorado!

Well, here I am for my first full day in Colorado Springs. From my office, I can see the Air Force academy stadium, and light planes are constantly taking off & landing for glider training for our next generation of budding pilots.

Welp, someone has WAY too much time on their hands and, of course, a webcam...

Colorado Springs

So I'm headed to a data center in Colorado Springs for the next ten days (Dec 11-20). During that time, I'll be staying at a nice hotel with a gym, but I gotta ask: what do you do to stay in shape while traveling? In particular, how do you handle all the eating out?

I think my suite has a kitchen. If it doesn't, wow, this is going to be a rough week for sticking to my eating plan :)
