It's been a bit longer than I anticipated in obtaining this certification, and I learned or re-learned way more about some networking items I will likely never use again, and/or haven't used in years such as information regard hubs. Reminds me of the 10base5 or 4wireE&M telephone signaling that I studied while in the Air Force and never used while I was there or since.
Things are really starting to pick up on the Cornerstones of Trust web development front. The conference is on Wednesday, June 6th in Foster City.
I think it's getting to be about time for another layout change on this website.
I've been doing a fair amount of design work on the Cornerstones of Trust website and will be meeting with the San Juaqine Sheriffs Association next month to do some volunteer work on their website.
For my own website, I kind of want to have a media/news style where you get headers and story previews on the main page along with media without having to scroll.

Sunday, I took my son out to the range for a bit of father-son bonding and sending lead down range. Aaron did really good with his first 10 rounds, getting 2 within the 10-ring at 7 yards.
Below is a video of him shooting.
There are more pictures from the day if you "read more"
This morning when I logged into my workstation, I found that one of my putty sessions to my AWS server had gone "inactive", I looked at the content of what was on the screen and I saw:

I recently picked up a GoPro video camera, so I'm going to be putting up some new videos on YouTube...
Here are a couple of videos I shot when driving home on Wednesday
Martin McKeay has an article Write to learn, learn to progress where he talks about his history of blogging and how it has helped his career, this is a very good post with many good points. I've halfheartedly been blogging since 2004 and one thing I've realized is in order to be a good blogger and get "followers" you need to read other peoples blogs and contribute to ongoing "conversations".
This is a presentation I did for my "Language and Communication: Presentation". For my research project I wanted to determine, based on pollution from the generation of electricity if an electric vehicle was any more environmentally friendly than a comparable gasoline engine.
