Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.

 

My kingdom for a door

Also, I think that private offices have remarkable benefits in terms of ... people's general happiness at work.... We're doubling the size of the Fog Creek offices as soon as we can, and our goal remains to put every developer in a private office.

(Drool. Although given the choice between an office with no view to outside and a desk from which you can at least see a window, maybe slightly less drool. But still. A door.... The problem is, I'd probably never leave it open ;-)
