100 Pushup Challenge? Hardly
So there's some manly competition going around the Geek community. Evidently Chris Williams challenged Darcy Lussier to do the 100 Pushup Challenge. What kind of junk is this challenge? Over the past couple of months, I've been working on both pushups, situps and squats, with NO BREAKS. I'm up to about 35 of each. But isn't having all of these breaks between sets of 10 and 15 pretty wussy? Ok ok, so each of them outweigh me by 100 pounds, and can toss me around like a rag doll, but pahleeze, 100 ......

Wasted Opportunities?
Great quote. Be careful what you ask for, but most importantly recognize the opportunities you've been presented with. If someone prays for patience, do you think God gives them patience, or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prays for courage, does God give him courage, or the opportunity to be courageous? If someone prays for the family to be closer, do you think God zapps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? -- Evan Almighty ......

Jeffrey Palermo set to speak Thursday in Northwest Arkansas
For those that weren't able to attend last Tuesday's Northwest Arkansas .Net User Group meeting, 8/5/2008, Zach Young (our Vice President of the group) was able to secure Jeffrey Palermo as a speaker for a special meeting this Thursday (8/14/2008). This is a huge boon, as Jeff is one of THE most sought after speakers in North America. Jeff is most known for the Party with Palermo series of events before each of the major conferences.

Steven Curtis Chapman & Adoption & my story
I'm sitting here in my hotel room, waiting for my son Ethan to wake so we might finish our 2 day drive to San Antonio. Only a few minutes after my last posting about Steven Curtis Chapman did a CNN news alert come across my desktop concerning their adoption work. Note that he'll also be on Larry King Live tonight. I supposed I had hoped to save this post for another day, but it seems as if God wants it today. Many of my friends know that I'm adopted, but very few know the story. Born in South Korea, ......

Steven Curtis Chapman shares, as do I
It's never been an easy thing for me to share my faith, so a big thanks to someone special for sharing their intensity, their light with me. I've only ever allowed one person to look at my music collection in it's entirety. Had you been allowed that rare glimpse, you'd be struck at how varied and eclectic my tastes are. But since being a teenager, the one artist that has always stuck out was Steven Curtis Chapman. Being my favorite amongst artist like Styx, Default, Beastie Boys, Crystal Method, ......

Speaking at Nashville devLink
It's always an honor to be asked to speak at an event. Fortunately John Kellar who chairs the Nashville devLink event hasn't heard about my reputation, lol. One of the many things I'm passionate about is software startups. Since I haven't had a chance to talk about this subject in a while, I'm really looking forward to it. If you have ever thought of or intend to start your own software business, then please attend. I guarantee it'll be one of the most engaging talks you've experienced. Here's a ......
