Out in California...

My first assignment with Magenic is with Microsoft - I'm currently stationed at one of their offices in Mountain View. I thought traveling would really suck as I do like spending time with my wife and my cats, but it's not all that bad (although I'd still rather be at home, cold as it is in Minnesota). The long flight is also beneficial in that I've been able to read a lot on the airplane. Last week it was "Writing Secure Code" - this week it's "Secrets and Lies". Both are good, although I prefer the latter as the writing style is clearer and more accessible.

I still have a couple of books to finish up; traveling is making it harder to get cracking on them. My plan is to get them done, and then take the rest of the year off writing-wise. Of course, I think I said that last year as well...

We finally have a high-speed Internet connection at home along with cable. I've dealt with a modem and rabbit ears for a very long time; now that I've moved on I'm not sure why I stayed so backwards in technology for so long.
