The Daily Hour

The music-computer pendulum that is my life has swung quite far in the computer direction this past month. I've barely touched the electric bass in weeks, and have spent most of my free time writing code and gaining vast amounts of knowledge on embedded databases (H2, HSQLDB, Derby, SQLite), logging (Log4j, LSF4j, Logback, Commons), the Spring Framework, and all of the associated view technologies. I'd known much of it before, but technical knowledge has a shelf life of about two weeks before it's considered yesterday's news, so this was a good exercise to flex my web application skills. I specialize in blue sites.

To anyone who tuned out in the previous paragraph and worries that this will become a tech blog, I'll probably swing back to writing funk music 24 hours per day by the end of the summer, or sooner if I burn out on coding. You have to milk the enthusiasm while it's there though! Here is a list of blog-types that this blog will never become:

  • A programming blog
  • A daily log of my caloric intake
  • A live cam of our tomato plants
  • Weekly pictures of my pregnant belly

I'm still running while watching The Office 4-5 times a week, and briefly tagged 119 pounds before consuming a bowl of Shells and Cheese and bouncing back up to acceptable weights for blood donation purposes.

I also continue to try new cooking exercises (not pictured below), and expect our four tomato plants to bounce back from the frost any day now.
