Behold the awesomeness of my 7th grade claymation!

Took me 3-4 months to make this video during free period in 7th grade in 1992.
This video originally had Kenny Loggins Highway to the Danger Zone, but I swapped it out for DFR to avoid any copyright issues.

How I tumbled down a river – The 2014 Quinebaug River Race

I didn’t know what I was getting into…

My brother-in-law said “hey you want to enter a canoe race?”  An excuse to paddle down river in early spring sounded like a great idea. He recruited my father-in-law and I recruited my brother and the four of us entered the All-American Quinebaug River Race. They were #30 in a 14 foot green Old Town canoe, and we were #31 in a battered blue 12 foot Lincoln canoe.

I was unaware that this canoe race had class II rapids.

Damn Good Developer Available

I was informed on Friday that PongoResume is laying off all its developers. This puts a lot of great developers back on the market.

One such developer is my good friend Glenn Gervais aka “RabidGadfly“.  I worked closely with him at both Pongo Resume and before that at Hasbro inc. His primary focus has lately been on Flex 4.5 application development. Before that he built and maintained a very popular games portal for Hasbro written in Flash(AS2). We also worked closely together to build a massive custom content management system written in Coldfusion using the Modelglue (and Coldspring) framework that helped to manage marketing information for Hasbro.com. Beyond that he completed hundreds of smaller projects that each helped save the day in their own way at Hasbro. He was also something of a mentor to me and for that I will always be grateful.

If you could use a Flex/Flash/Coldfusion guru on your team and you are in the Massachusetts or Rhode Island area you should contact him directly at:
Thank you.

Snots by the Lots

You’ve got snots by the lots
And snoogies and boogies
You’re nose is all rosie
You’re feeling all woozie

You’ve come down with a cold
You’re of age now my child
You’ve been to the breeding grounds
Where great germs roam wild

Day care and the doctor’s
The mall food court’s bathroom
you tasted everything
and licked a baboon

So now you are soggy
crusted cranky and crabby
there’ll be no sleep for you
(‘nor for mommy and daddy)

But fear not my child
for some future day
you’ll return to good humor
and go out to play

 

 

Sam is sick so I wrote this poem for him with a suggestion from a friend.
