Job / Life changes

Thu, 03/14/2013 - 19:25 -- btmash

It has been 4 months since my last blog post. In that time span, we have seen doomsday come and go, I passed the 30 year mark (I suppose *that* was my doomsday?), and over 3 months have passed into the New Year. In that same time span, my involvement in the Drupal community went down significantly (well...moreso than a few months before it - I was spending far less time in IRC, less involvement in the issue queue...less than I would have liked in many ways). There have been changes which include:

  • Leaving CalArts
  • Starting a new job
  • Moving

And more.


Finally got some new games and now a Club Nintendo prize

I am going to receive a batch of Hanafuda cards as my reward. Woohoo!

After years of saving up points, I finally reached the 800 point mark on Club Nintendo. The way it the points work is that for each Wii game that you own, you get 50 points; for each DS game, you get 30 points. It is then followed up by a survey which awards you a further 10 points per game. However, the points expire at the end of the year, and I decided to go all out :)

5 years of Drupal

I am officially 5 years, 12 hours old at the time of writing this blog post.

As I was digging through old emails, I realized that 5 years ago today, I started my first job out of university as a junior systems programmer / web developer at zinc Roe Design. I was hired to help finish a website that had been built in Drupal (4.6 - not that I knew the difference back then) and had no idea that it would lead me to where I am today.

Santa Clarita Food Truck Festival

This past Saturday, my wife and I had a chance to finally enjoy some food we almost never get a chance to out in the 'burbs - food trucks! About 40 food trucks converged on a few baseball fields for a food truck festival.

It was a cold, rainy, snowy day (ok, maybe still warm by the standards of the north ^_~), but we both had a lot of fun. Atleast half of the food trucks served some form of vegetarian food (all of which was fairly reasonably priced) and we ultimately chomped down on:

I haz a site!

I'm a little late (18 days according to my vps uptime) on blogging about this. But after nearly 5 years of mulling about on tumblr, blogspot, wordpress, and xanga, I finally decided to pony up for my own vps and build out something I can call 'my own' (yes, I tweet a fair bit, but that's different!). Being that Drupal 7 came out a short time ago and I use Drupal for most of my projects, I decided this is a good time to build a site using it and:
