Works on 2 postulates: Knowledge is Power; Time is Money
Power = Work/Time
Knowledge is Power, therefore Knowledge = Work/Time
Time is Money, therefore Knowledge = Work/Money
Rearrange: Money = Work/Knowledge
Therefore as Knowledge goes to zero, money goes to infinity
Hence why managers always make more than engineers

Hey All,

Well I thought this was DEFINATELY blog worthy…..thanks to my friends over at LifeHacker I stumbled accross this gem of an idea: Click Me!

Well being the cunning engineer that I am, I decided to put my own spin on the idea…

It feels pretty solid, I’ve jiggled it around, pulled it down, and swayed it back and forth…I’m happy with the result…..couple that with a little bit of Synergy action and we have ourselves a winner!

All the pics available here

Until next time….l8rz

Hey All,

So i’ve been prowling the blogs I follow and just google in general in search for a group collaboration app. During my search I evalated a great deal of products. During my evaluation I noticed a reocurring thought, “Wow….this app is really good….these developers have a lot of talent!” That seems to be the case for a lot of nifty web 2.0 apps. I was really happy to learn about some new 2.0 apps and how they work. There are a multitude of different ideas and methods of thinking. Upon my search I settled upon No Kahuna for a workgroup collaboration tool.

While looking for a support button I stumbed accross their version of a support application, GetSatisfaction. This app was a completely different spin on support than I’m used to, but frankly the idea is pretty darn good.

Some other apps I previewed were:

Well I think that’s all for now, just wanted to post my findings. Hopefully these tools can help others.

Hey All,

So it’s been a month or so since I last updated….my how time flies…..been a busy last few weeks. Engineering has been kicking my ass up and down the block with no apparent signs of letting up. Hopefully I can get all my work finished up during the week so I can head home this weekend. Planning to goto knotts scary farm with some friends and spend some time with Mom as it’s her b-day.

On a side note, I finally got the new pipe for my motorcycle. I love it….it’s so quiet! (yeah….you read that right…) When i’m on the freeway I hear the wind and tire’s over the exhaust now, that’s awesome! With that I can ride it around more freely and not worry about getting busted for a noise voilation or something of that nature.

I did notice a slight (ever so slight) decrease in performance with the new pipe, but I think I can live with that given the significant decrease in sound. I went on a test ride to break it in and I loved it. Sadly one of my clostest riding spots got closed down (Refugio fire road). Most likely due to the fire that was raging in those parts during the summer. So I had to make my way over to Paradise/Lower Oso. I should be putting up GPS maps and a ride report soon (just have to figure out how to download the data in linux)

Until Next time….
