• Not Quite 5 Hour Energy

    I’m up late tonight with some overnight maintenances for work. On one hand, it’s only 11pm here because work is pegged to EDT and I’m in HST. The bad thing is that I’m also pretty tied to EDT and wake up at 5am or earlier. If I were still on the East Coast, it’d be […]

  • It’s Been A Long Week

    This is the end of my most recent upgrade week. What that means is that I’ve been tasked with the bulk of customer-related upgrades for work that mostly take place at night (to reduce potential impact of doing stuff during the day). And what that means is that I’m fairly exhausted. Today was a double-whammy […]

  • I Almost Work For Google

    On July 1st, Google and ITA Software signed on the dotted line and ITA agreed to be purchased by Google. I’ve been working at ITA since October 2007 and it’s an amazingly fascinating job. No matter how insane you believe the airline industry is from the perspective of an airline traveler, it’s probably more than […]

  • Bad Website Parent

    I’ve been super busy lately and haven’t been updating like I should be. The week of 12/8 I was nighttime upgrader and I was scheduled to work the weekend of 12/13. That got bumped, but completely ate my Friday night. Then from 12/18-12/25, I’ve been on-call, which means 24-7 support coverage by phone. I also […]

  • Shit Week

    I start a week of nighttime upgrades tonight. My schedule looks like this: Sun: 2100-0200 Mon: 2359-0700 Tue: 1900-0700 Wed: 1900-0200 Thu: 1900-0200 Every night until Friday is overnight work. It’s just the luck of the draw, and this one is gonna suck.

  • Boston @ Night — From The Harbor

    I shot this last night while on a harbor cruise in Boston harbor. It’s shot at ISO 6400, which explains the noise. I did a few things to try to remove some noise, but even at 6400, the 5D2 does a great job. Click for larger.

  • Raining Cats & Dogs

    I’m in North Carolina visiting my mother. Weather is pretty hot with high humidity. We’re talking low to mid 90′s. This evening we had some thunderstorms roll through. They were over fairly quickly, but they were definitely pretty heavy for a bit. The video doesn’t really show the rain (though you can see it hitting […]

  • Buried In Your Black Heart

    Nothing major to report. Just lots of little things. Today’s Wednesday, so I picked up some comics on the way home. It was a good day for some titles that I’m a fan of – Deadpool, Farscape, Hellboy and Army of Darkness. I’m going to need to get a new box to hold comics and […]

  • The Post-Vacation Grind

    I’m currently at the dealership getting some minor work done on my Jeep. The heater dial only works when it’s in the “high” mode and I get a small amount of weird feedback when in 4WD. The first is likely a really quick fix. The second, not so sure. We’ll see. I’m also getting the […]

  • Pack It Up Pack It In

    Tomorrow we’re leaving for the Bahamas for a week. I can’t wait. While today was “nice weather” in Boston (relative to how shitty it’s been), I’m happy to leave the mid-to-high 50′s and trade up to mid-to-high 70′s. Packing was a bit of a bitch. I have all my photo stuff plus the underwater photo […]
