Sitting At The Camper

I’m sitting on the deck right now, writing this post on my phone using the WordPress iPhone application with a nice cold Sam Adams Irish Red while Jonna sits chilling across from me in our astronaut chairs – which is what I call these lawn chairs she found that recline and are totally comfortable.

While this is not the ideal way to blog for me (my hands get tired very quickly these days), I have to say it’s pretty cool to be able to write a blog post in the middle of nowhere and actually be able to post it.

The application also has support for the camera, so I am posting some quick pictures as well, that I just took while writing this – just to see how it works.

It’s interesting. For all intents and purposes, this place is supposed to be my refuge from technology. Up until now, I have been limited to Twitter via SMS / web and emailing Flickr photos from the phone.

Now I’m sitting here writing a blog post and watching Jonna roll here eyes at me for doing it. Life is good.

I never thought I would be this connected and have these online capabilities from a campground. What a time we live in!

Tonight is Karoke night here. Not a big fan. However, we do have a big stump to burn. Maybe we’ll just hang out here tonight.

More later. Thumbs tired.

Feeling Bad

I’m kind of feeling bad for not blogging lately. The site is not getting much of my attention over the last few months. I’m playing a lot with git, a version control tool and figuring out how it plays with SVN, the SCM we use at work. I’m most interested in the advantages over SVK for distributed development while still having a central repository. Expect some posts on that soon.

Aside from that it is camping season, so I’m trying to spend most of my weekends away from the computer.

Hopefully, the bookmark trail is giving some good data on what I am looking at lately. If you really want to know whats going on, follow me on Twitter. It’s where I spend most of my blogging time lately.

Metrics as a Side Effect – Its REAL.

Aside

Its been over a year since I wrote Metrics As A Side Effect, explaining how my perfect time tracking system would be something based on a Twitter like application. Imagine my surprise when I found that Harvest Time Tracking Software enables Twitter updates. Its not exactly how I described it, but its a step in the right direction. Totally cool.
