Rob's Throughts on Tech, Rails, and Software Devleopment

I'm very excited about my new job! I'll be working for a start up in downtown San Diego, writing Ruby in the Ruby on Rails framework. This is going to mean some pretty serious changes for me, and for Anna. If nothing else it should reduce my stress by increasing my passion for what I'm doing.

Dallas Trippen

I went on my first business trip two weeks ago. I feel like we were productive... We learned a lot about the tool Dimensions (which I can now say for sure is crap). However its what management want us to use so I stuck with it for now. Dallas it self was ok, nothing really to see, though my boss and I did visit the Dallas Museum of Art. The museum was worth while, I really like that they hold free evening hours every Thursday. I also saw the main dist center for Tuesday Morning (a discount chain) which was cool. Flying really makes me appreciate all the comforts of the train, but at least my flights where on time. Total loop count (number of circles made trying to find something) was 10... Not bad for 6 days. The funniest insident was Cindy and I hunting for the gas tank release on the Galant I rented. We spent maybe 15-20 minutes because it was obvious that it took a lever and didn't just open. I guess your supposed to figure out that it pivots like a secret door.
I'm trying to get orginised and post more... We'll see how that goes.
