Working Daddy

So back at work now after the birth of our second child. What a great joy there is in life even at 4:30 in the morning while changing a diaper. I am also pleased to have the flexibility that Sun provides to work from home and in my case full time. I have been on the full time wfh track for about 6 years now.

So I know I have not been blogging a ton lately and that is not like me. I thought I would give you all and update as to what else I am up to. I am currently working on a small project to be found in a future release of CT that will support std as well as stlport4 in a c++ library. So that is going to be the big push for the next bit and then onto a few small defects that keep bugging me (some around CT install). After that is all up and out, well then who knows.

I came back from the quick paternity leave to find that a small reorg had taken place and the CT group was shuffled around a bit. I like the move and am excited to see what/if this move will do for the CT group.

Gobi7: Day 8

Minor update for today, the panning was getting to me so I switched back to a session that was 1024x786 which is the resolution of the Gobi7.

kill-a-watt study

Along with a couple dozen other folks I am taking part in a small energy usage study right now. Each day I am tracking the time and energy used for appliances that are being used for my work tasks for the day. This includes items like the laptop, Sun Ray, monitor, broadband modem and router. Items that are not being me.asured by the usage meter include (but are not limited to) the room lights, hvac, telephone/cell phone, room clock. Based on roughly three days of data, I have used roughly 3 kWh. I shall keep you all updated.

SunRay@Home back up... and soon upgraded

The SunRay@Home has been down for a while for me on my own account.  My old home router kicked the bucket and I finally got around to replacing it last night.  Not that I have been without home internet service, just wireless only since the Airport Express that I also have does not have any wired port connections on it for the SR@H setup.  Now the SR@H is back up and soon to be upgraded from a SR 1g to a SR 2.
