Lacking Motivation

Posted on 6/28/2001 to In General

It's been nearly a week since I have written a single line of code. Each time I get the urge and sit down at my computer, I invariably get up 2 minutes later and go read a book.

Where Did It Go?

Posted on 6/25/2001 to In General

Not that you care, but for the first time in 3 years I can see my chin. Yes, I shaved off my goatee. A picture? I doubt it.

A Little Get Away

Posted on 6/24/2001 to In General

Well, here it is a week and a half since we last talked.

So what's new with you? Hey, that sounds like fun.

Me? Well, we went camping this weekend in the Rocky Mountain National Park. Yeah, it was a good time. We did your typical camping know, hiking and roasting marshmallows and stuff.

No, Jacob didn't go...he stayed with his Great Aunt for the weekend, I hear they had a blast.

Yes, of course, I took pictures. I'll post them soon.

All praise me :-)

Do me a favor, click on this. Now look in your address bar...see that? default.aspx? That means that this page is now an ASP.NET page. Also, the "Places I Visit" list to the is generated using the web service that I wrote yesterday. If you are toying with ASP.NET and want to use my web service, drop me a line.

.net is gonna be big...

I am just a blogging fool today!


In the very near future, my little web site will become a dot net site...that is ASP.NET. I recently wrote a web service that exposes the bookmarks and links from metaStash so that users can use this data within their own applications - more on this later. Anyway, I want to be able to use my links from metaStash on my own website, so that was the inspiration for the web service.

Yes, I should be working instead of playing.

Well, I've been doing this blog thing for over a year now and was perusing the archives recently...interesting stuff. I will make the archives available in the near future for those of you that care.

Unmaintainable Code

How To Write Unmaintainable Code...great stuff, good for a laugh, unless you are maintaining code like this.

Family Update

Posted on 6/11/2001 to In General


The family (Gidgit and Jacob) is back from their brief stay in Dallas. Evidently they had a good time.

Me? I stayed in Colorado, enjoyed the quiet, except for around 10:00 PM Saturday night when I called the police due to some overly excited Colorado Avalanche fans who thought that it would be cool to shoot off fireworks in the middle of our street. Now I am not normally such a party pooper, but when the consequences of someone's actions could affect my own personal property, that is where I draw the line. Never saw the police though.

Did I mention how much I hate my job? I wonder if my employer has come across my site yet? Probably not.

Are you a developer? Would you like to be a part of our developer co-op? If so drop me a line at bryan at daneman dot com.

What does this co-op do? I don't know, that's why we need you. Actually, the co-op, also known as c@chedCode Technology Group, has been formed to help bring developer's together to share information and idea's, brainstorm, collaborate on projects, etc. The Group is just starting out, so why not help get us going.

Hey, I almost forgot to mention my latest development efforts... c@chedCode. It will be the home of my new company, c@chedCode Technology Group.

I Hate My Job!

Posted on 6/6/2001 to In General

Have I mentioned how much I am disliking my job? I shouldn't complain though, at least I am employed, right?

Not quite.

On top of making a 100+ mile roundtrip commute everyday, I am filling in for a co-worker who is on vacation.

No big deal, right?


You see, I had just a couple of days of "transition" and I am supposed to step in and not miss a beat, when the person working on this has had 2+ months to get up to speed. Did I mention that this involves a product that is practically beta, is full of bugs, and has little documentation? What a headache! I am considering finding another job just to get off of this project.

Ugh! There is that pain in my ass again.

So Gidgit and Jacob are in Dallas until Sunday. How loney I am already.
