I peed my pants

Holy Shit! A talking chicken!

Looking for a job

My contract is coming to an end at my current location, so I'm starting up the job search process.

I have a couple of leads, but more is always good. Here's my resume.

If you know someone in the Dallas/Fort Worth area who needs an architect, tech lead or senior developer for a Java or C++ application (I have python skills too, see the TurboGears site I built), please forward me on to them. I can work well as a part of a team, lead a team to success using agile processes, or build applications completely independently.

My rates are high. I am open to full time salaried work, but only if I can get a salary comparable to my 1099 rate or the work is just fantastic.

I am interested in relocating overseas (primarily England or near Geneva, Switzerland) but I only have mediocre Spanish and crappy German in the way of foreign language skills.

Great dangling duck dicks, Batman!

duck dickApparently several species of duck, including Meller's duck from Madagascar and an Argentine duck, have gotten into a reproductive evolutionary war with their sex organs. They start growing a phallus at the beginning of the mating season, and it grows (up to longer than the duck itself) through the rest of the season.

Read the NYT article on duck dicks.

Thanks, Boing Boing!


I don't have a picture for this, but this poem, or essay, or whatever it is really moved me.
