Okay, I am weird (tell me something that I don’t know, say most of my friends).  For Christmas I wanted a Nike Apple Watch to go with my existing FitBit and Garmin fitness trackers (I look sort of like a cyborg in the photo below…which is always cool). While I was intrigued by the ability to do all sorts of cool things on the Apple Watch (like take a phone call and talk into my wrist watch like Dick Tracy), the thing that most intrigued me was the ability to buy third-party apps that could yield detailed exercise and health data.  I was hoping that this detailed exercise and health data could help me understand what effect particular behaviors or activities (or lack of particular behaviors and activities) were having on my overall health. Why is this important to me?  You can thank articles like “Unexpected Heart Attack Triggers” for my health and exercise anxiety.... (more)

Saint Arnold Brewing Company to Celebrate 15th Anniversary

HOUSTON, June 2, 2009 – Hundreds of enthusiastic craft beer fans will converge on Saint Arnold Brewing Co. (www.saintarnold.com) this weekend to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the delivery of its first keg of beer. At 15, Saint Arnold Brewing holds the title of the oldest craft brewery in Texas at a time when the popularity of craft beer is surging and going mainstream. “When we started in 1994, there was a wave of craft brewery openings.  Unfortunately, most did not succeed.  Only a handful of us are still around, and we are the oldest,” said Brock Wagner, founder and brewer of Saint Arnold Brewing. “I attribute our success to our focus on quality brewing.  We never wavered, even during the tough times, and we kept working hard.  It took a long time, but we stuck to our strategy and cultivated a community of customers across Texas who appreciate good, full-flavor...

Have a Seat Mr. Website Owner, It’s Time for a Little Introspection

When a client signs a contract with me for a web design, the first thing I do is send them a three page questionnaire and request they answer as many questions as they deem appropriate. This questionnaire helps me get inside their heads and it helps me better understand their marketing objectives, the opinion of their existing website, and their overall view of internet marketing. I ask a lot of questions about the current and future state of their sales process and marketing programs. While these questions are informative, I definitely have a few questions that are my favorites. In particular, this would be four questions focused on their current website. I like this set of questions because they’re very informative and they are “raw”. I can tell many clients write the first thing that comes to their minds, which is priceless. Some answers have me laughing out lou... (more)

Saint Arnold Brewing Company (www.saintarnold.com), the oldest craft brewery in Texas, today reported record shipments of more than 40,000 barrels of beer in 2011.

An Enterprise and Software Architect's Tools of the Trade

I have been doing Software Architecture for 16 years and Enterprise Architecture for the past few. Along with architecture I usually find as part of each gig, if not the main focus of each gig, process implementation or at least process improvement is required. It is not easy keeping up the latest technologies, processes, architectural techniques, and enterprise architecture framework improvements. I am a firm believer that to be an architect, you must also be an experienced developer. I do not believe in the hands off architect role and wish the Ivory Tower Architects would stop claiming to be Architects. They are theorist not architects. Modeling, Governance, and documenting are part of the architect's job, but in order to produce valuable artifacts you need to be getting your hands dirty. I also run into a ton of Googler-Developers. Meaning they have no idea why ... (more)

31 Days of our Favorite Things: Windows Server 2012 and the RSATs (Part 24 of 31)

RSAT stands for Remote Server Administration Tools.  This is the toolset that IT Pros have come to know and love, because it is the toolset that lets them keep sitting at their desks. “You mean, it contributes to the obesity epidemic in America?” Well.. I wouldn’t go that far.  But it certainly doesn’t help.  And that’s not what it was designed for.  How about we agree that when you’re done reading this, you promise to get up, stretch, and take a walk.* What I mean is that it’s the toolset that IT Pros use to manage their servers right from their workstations.  And with the huge (HUGE) improvements in Windows Server 2012, and in particular the Server Manager for fully managing all of your servers from one console, this becomes a very powerful toolset. To describe what the RSAT tools (redundant) do for you, allow me to share with you the text from the download page, ... (more)

VCE Revisited, Now and Zen

Yesterday VCE and their proud parents announced revenues had reached an annual run rate of a billion dollars. Today VCE announced some new products along with enhancements to others. Before going forward though, let's take go back for a moment to help set the stage to see where things might be going in the future. A little over a three years ago, back in November 2009 VCE was born and initially named ACADIA by its proud parents (Cisco, EMC, Intel and VMware). Here is a post that I did back then. BTW the reference to Zen might cause some to think that I don't how to properly refer to the Xen hypervisor. It is really a play from Robert Plants album Now and Zen and its song Tall Cool One. For those not familiar, click on the link and listen (some will have DejaVu, others might think its new and cool) as it takes a look back as well as present, similar to VCE. On the... (more)
