Galveston, Summer 2015

We took a quick vacation to the island, and of course I took my cameras.

First Day

Old street sign post

The first day at the new gig went like any first day normally does. Paper-work and meeting lots of new folks. The office is in a part of town where I used to live, so I know it fairly well. This is a repeating theme, since the HP office was near my high school.

Since I got into the office early, I was able to swing one of my favorite coffee houses. While the customer base has changed a bit from 20 years ago (more suits and no nose-rings) and the menu has a bit more on it (beer, anyone?), the coffee drinks were the same, and they tasted as good as I remember.

The picture is of the old street sign post on the corner of the property.

Light Sail!

Light Sail Mission Patch

Growing up in Houston, I have followed our space program off and on. I am also a big reader of Sci-Fi. So, when I heard about the Solar Sail Kickstarter Project from The Planetary Society, I jumped on board. And, while they have raised almost 4 times their goal, I think that this is a project which will have more of an impact on humanity than some of the other projects.

So, join me in backing them!

Moving

HP logo

Well, after 4 years (almost to the day), it is time for me to say good-bye to HP. The team I worked on is a great team who really know their stuff. However, I am a geek, and I want to be doing things with tech, and not talking about tech,, and for the most part, talking is all I have been doing. I have learned a lot and was given a chance to do some traveling which I do not think I would have been able to do.

So, where am I going? Well, until after I start and get on-boarded, I am not sure how much I can say. It is a financial company based in Houston, so I will not be moving the crew, just changing the direction I commute back to into the sun again.

Stay tuned here for more updates, and I will probably be using this as a place to document some of the new things I learn on the way.

Peace.
