Becoming a Godfather

When my first niece was born in March, I was more than delighted to learn that my sister intended to name me as her Godfather.

The other part of me was excited to have the title and responsibility and a niece I could claim to be more special than the others. Not…

Washing Dishes Might Have Just Gotten Easier

Washing Dishes Might Have Just Gotten Easier

It’s no secret that I don’t like washing dishes. Ask my girlfriend. I think I’m great at washing dishes. I know this because I worked for a couple of years in a few different kitchens and I was really good at washing the industrial dishes, like reallygood.

April Fools Prank with a Raspberry Pi

April Fools Prank with a Raspberry Pi

So I have this idea for a April Fool’s day prank using my Raspberry Pi and for the most part, it’s completely possible.

Background

I don’t think it’s much of a secret, but I’m not overly enthusiastic about the translation business. It’s not what I see myself doing for the rest of my life but for now it pays the bills. I’m okay with that.

That being said, I’m constantly looking for ways for me to advance my career in a different direction. I think of hair brained schemes, I email strangers out of the blue, creep job boards,…
