Since my last post was a long long long long time ago, I can’t claim this to be the most active blog in the world. I was hoping to put some side projects on here, as well as some ham radio items, but things have been crazy busy in real life. I have been active with the Linux in the Ham Shack podcast this year, and as well I’ve been a regular contributor to the Amateur Radio Newsline program for the K2BSA Amateur Radio Association.

I want to keep this post short, so here’s my list of goals:

  • Professionally I want to get better at my day job, and spend less time working on new features and more time on refactoring to make adding new features less painful
  • In podcasting, I want to continue working and improving on LHS and ARNewsline, as well I want to get YAARPcast off the ground
  • In open source, I want to get some of my hidden side projects (you know, the ones that only exist in your head) moved into reality or github
  • Personally I want to spend more quality time with my family, and less time shopping at Costco

That should keep things simple enough for now.  I hope to also put some content here that doesn’t suck quite as much as this post.
