Greetings From The Land of Domestic Violence – Las Vegas

Caesar's Palace

It’s been a long time coming, but my wife finally got to go to a Learning and Development conference.  I’m so glad she gets to interact with like-minded people and hopefully find some software for her organization.  The cool thing is it’s in Las Vegas and of course I had to tag along.  I’m taking the opportunity to update some of the websites I maintain…like this neglected one.

This is the first time we’ve stayed at Caesar’s Palace and I’ll tell you I’m not that impressed.  For the cost of the room you think you would get things included, NOPE.  You are required to pay a daily resort fee.  Once again, you would think this pays for common hotel things, NOPE.  You get a whopping one device per day Internet access, access to pools that are closed, and a crappy fitness center.  Oh, if you want coffee in your room, that’s a $12 box of K-cups.

Hardware, Firmware, Software – A Bit’s Journey

Most people using computers these days don’t even realize what happens when they do something as simple as click on a button or type on the keyboard.  Have you ever stopped to think about what happens inside your computer when you click the mouse?  I work on Basic Input / Output System firmware or BIOS firmware every day and I know first-hand just how complicated it can be.

The Mark Experience

I know I haven’t blogged much in quite a while but I figured I’d use it to perform a shameless plug. :) You heard me right, I’m shamelessly promoting the best makeup around. All kidding aside Mark makeup is some of the trendiest available today. Check out my store The Mark Experience and find out how you can get 18 shades of eye shadow for only $20.

Peace-Out!

Wifey finally made it….

Yes, I finally managed to log in.  My husband created this site so I could blog about his nerdyness and has been hounding me to share my thoughts since day one.  Although, I think he kind of took it over as his side project.  I have to say, overall he hides his geek pretty well.  In fact he’s more of a realist.  Every once in a while though, he let’s his guard down and names off some techno-babble that only those in his serious circle would understand.

We’re coming up on our one year anniversary next month and I have to say, he continues to impress me everyday with his wit and charm.  And I’m not saying that because I have to.  :)  I just think it’s so amazing how our thought processes are completely different, but we both manage to come to the same conclusion.  We both compliment each other extremely well.
