The Solution?

While I am not the "All Things Texas" guy, I thought this to be pretty funny...

Hello Again!


Well, it has been more than a year at Magpul, and the job is still outstanding.  Needless to say, it has been an extremely busy year, full of challenges and accomplishments.

I am going to make an effort to visit this site more often, keeping everyone informed of the latest with Magpul and the craziness in my life.

The Adventure Continues!


Lots of life changes for me in the past several months, with the largest being leaving my job at Kroll Factual Data and starting a new on at Magpul Industries!

There have been lots of changes (some good, some not so good) happening at KFD.  Then, in April, my boss at the time (and very good friend) announced that he was retiring. I knew then it was time to re-evaluate my professional life.

In comes Magpul: almost exactly at the same time, I am trading messages with a friend at Magpul.  He arranges for me to interview for Director of Information Technology position, and a few days after leaving KFD - whamo! - new job!

Magpul is such an exciting company to be working for right now.  They have a great company culture and values.  I am blessed to be offered the opportunity to help them get to the next level with the technology infrastructure!

Hopefully with this new change means more opportunities to blog again.  We'll see how the coming weeks work out.  I can share with you that it has been a BUSY couple of weeks since I have started.

R.I.P. Neil Armstrong...

The world is in desperate need of heroes, and we lost a great hero and space pioneer over the weekend. 

Tuesday, July 10, 2012


Well, my travels continue.  I am not lost, but was away from the world of computers and blogs visiting the land of Milk and Cheese.

Not much time to write today, as family is visiting, and I'm as busy as ever.  But I saw this and had to share it.

Sci-Fi Friday: A Classic...

I am going to be out of blogging range for a bit, but I haven't forgotten the blog.  I will update when I can.  I promise.

For Sci-Fi Friday, I leave you with a picture of the classic. Hopefully you can recognize this motley crew.

(hint: their names are on the bus in the background)

White House Claims Executive Privilege...

I am generally not one of those types that believes that everything that the sitting President does has a suspicious ulterior motive. But you do have to question President Obama's latest use of executive privilege.

If you believe the White House spin department, the decisions and actions that led up to Operation Fast and Furious were all above board, and were part of a continued series of investigations (albeit an operation that put thousands of guns into the hands of the Mexican drug cartels). But today, in "the most transparent White House in history" (this quote always cracks me up), the Obama administration decided that the details surrounding the operation would be subject to executive privilege, and would not be released to the House committee investigating the operation.

I strongly believe in the idea of executive privilege (a curious concept that some political parties only believe when it suits them), so I support President Obama's use of the privilege in this case.  But it sill makes me wonder what exactly was AG Holder and the White House thinking...

Microsoft Surface...

I meant to post this yesterday, but time got away from me...

This is the new tablet offering from Microsoft - the Microsoft Surface. 


Unlike some of the "other" slates and tablets that have been released, this one has the potential of being a game changer and finally a real alternative to the iPad from Apple.  Of course, just like the previous entries into the market, it will very much depend on how the Surface is actually priced - if it is too high, regardless of the features, people tend to go with what they know over the new thing.  So hopefully, Microsoft will have it as a bargain price, and create some real competition for the iPad.

Press "Engaging" The President...

After the Daily Caller's Neil Munro shouted questions at President Obama last week, you would have thought that the world was coming a screeching halt.  While I am generally not very supportive of what Neil Munro did, the liberal establishment would have you believe that never in the history of all media has something so egregious ever happen.

Well, it has.

Check out this AP article from the Reagan years at the White House.
