It's Not New York, But...

So it's official--I'm off to Portland, OR for 6 months. I took a short-term contract job leading a small team of software developers for a company called Shiftwise. Against my better judgement, I'll once again be working alongside Darrel Carver who, against his better judgement gave me a recommendation. I start on April 2, and will head to Portland a few days before that to get settled in. Fear not (or, quite possibly DO fear), I'll be back in the Treasure Valley quite often over the next 6 months, and after that I'll be back in Kuna permanently. If any of you make it to Portland, let me know and we'll get together for coffee, beer, lunch, dinner, tea, milk, martinis, Klondike Bars or parcheesi. My email address and phone number will remain the same, and as always I'll be on the ever-omnipresent Facebook.

Paying the Piper

It's a cash and carry world. Sometimes you pay a little. Mostly it's a lot. Sometimes, it's everything you have.
