I have seen these comments, or ones like them, over and over again this week:"Bear knew he broke the rules and even tho I agree with him you can't have armed people in the workplace."

I sit ten thousand feet above the earth in a coffin made of steel and plastic, hurtling through the air at a velocity I have a hard time fathoming. But it is not my location to which my mind wanders, but the events oft he past few days. I flew to Louisiana to meet with the creator and lead dev Peter of the Open Source project called osTicket, and his protege and fellow developer Jared. We spent two days talking and brainstorming and breathing all things osTicket.

Day 1 - Morning: Routine Changes

Today is a brand new day. It began almost like any other day, but with a few minor differences. I'm not a morning person, never have been, probably never will be. This morning I woke up, hit snooze a couple times and was surprised by how awake and alert I felt. Usually this is not the case, and I need to get some caffeine and be awake an hour before I feel like I can function like a normal human being.

A son and his father

Those who know me very well, rarely if ever hear me talk about my father. However when I do I feel that my words convey how proud I am of most of the things that he has done in his life. To recap a little, he has always had a very strong work ethic, and probably should have been an early case study for work-a-holics. For many many years he worked for Hewlett Packard designing computer boards for medical equipment.

Are you serious? Why yes I am. Not only is Lucas selling Lucasfilm Ltd AND Star Wars to Disney, but the article also specifically mentions a new Star Wars movie to be released in 2015.

Here are a few quotes:
"STAR WARS: EPISODE 7 feature film targeted for release in 2015."

"$4.05 billion, with Disney paying approximately half of the consideration in cash and issuing approximately 40 million shares at closing."

Book: Brave New World and Revisited by Aldous Huxley

Political: 
I am currently in the middle of reading "Brave New World and Brave New World Revisited 1st (first) edition Text Only [Hardcover]" by Aldous Huxley. I've really been meaning to read it for over a decade now and am finally getting around to it. Most people would probably be surprised to realize that it was an Iron Maiden album by the same name (and their twelfth studio album) released back in 2000 is what introduced me to the book in the first place.
