Here is a question….

It has been roughly 2 months since I updated this blog.  I tell myself weekly, I set reminders on my phone, and every other action I could possible do to post something.  What usually happens is that I am not at home when the reminder goes off, I’m study for a test, or Mrs. SQLCodeMonkey…

Vacation is upon us!

Back to my old habits of forgetting to post Blogs.  Well, if you haven’t seen anything here, you can always find great tips for SQL Server on one of my social media platforms. Summer Vacation has finally arrived.  Thirteen days away from work.  This year, we are heading on a cruise.  This will be the…

The picture says it all

As you can see from the picture that I have attached to this post, I am the president of the slacker club.  I just noticed today that it has been almost 2 months since I posted anything here.  Well, honestly, that isn’t a good thing. Don’t think I haven’t been super busy these last few…

Why LinkedIn, Why?

LinkedIn is a great tool to use for Networking.  A lot of us who use LinkedIn, do public speaking engagements.  Do you know, that LinkedIn doesn’t have a topic for public speaking? They have areas for adding patents, publications and even other languages you speak to your profile, however, they do not have an area…

The New Theme Layout

It’s been almost a full year that I have hosted my own WordPress site.  I moved away from my .NET blog software that was hosted on my X454 site and switched to a Raspberry Pi running a full LAMP server.  Since then, I have stuck with a simple theme that really didn’t match the layout…

Site was down

Hello All! Seems that I had a little connection problems the last few days.  I swapped out my router and in the process I reset my static IP address on my web server.  During this time, it looks like the site was down and couldn’t be accessed. I finally got a chance to get everything…

What should this title read….

Sometimes I think I have posted a post, then I look at my feed only to realize I haven’t.  That is why I am calling this one my Miscellaneous post.  When I first came up with the idea for the post, I was going to talk about projects I’m working on, or things that I…

Video Games

I recently read an article that asked the question, what was the first video game you ever played on a PC.  When I think about the first games I ever played on a PC, it amuses me when I hear someone say that a game’s graphics are not “rich” enough, or isn’t detailed enough.  Let’s…

Summer Time

The hours turns into days, the days into weeks and before you know a month has gone by without a post.  Now that Summer is here, my schedule has became so disorganized, that I can’t remember when I posted my last post. With my child out of school for the summer and Mrs. CodeMonkey starting…

The Album is out

Not too many times that you can brag about one of your children.  I have three, and each of them have their own qualities that make them unique.  My oldest one is a great mother of two, she has a husband who treats her very well and they just recently bought their first house.  My…

5 Strings of Glory

Being a guitar player, sometimes I am drawn to the creative possibilities of alternate tunings, but I really don’t want to completely lose my bearings on the fingerboard.  A partial capo may be just the ticket, no matter what your skill level is.  Like an alternate tuning, a partial capo changes the intervals between the…
