What’s up Buttercup?

There’s not been a lot of blogging going on of late… We’re in the final stages of shipping LINQ to HPC (an RC is now available). I’ve been writing samples and documentation, basically dumping what’s in my head into something that the rest of the world can read. Writing is writing, it’s all good.

I also got to write all the samples, which I thought turned out rather well, although you can’t please everyone. I got to write some additional “extras” libraries to make LINQ to HPC even easier to use.

Been drinking a lot of single malt – a lot, but not an alcoholic lot – and learning rather too much about what it takes to distill a good dram. It’s more complicated than you might think. Luckily The Susan got me 99 Drams of Whiskey: The Accidental Hedonist’s Quest for the Perfect Shot and the History of the Drink for Christmas and I finally got around to reading it. A sort of travelogue and tasting guide combined with a healthy dose of history.

There’s also been a lot of mountain biking going on. Or should I say mountain bike crashing… But we’ll save that for another day.


Moo business cardsIn other news. I decided I needed some new personal business cards as the ones I bought a few years ago are now looking rather dated. Black and white. I came across Moo.com because O’Reilly used them for some free book discount cards that they sent me when we did the parallel programming books.

Worth checking out if your in the market for something in the seriously nice line of business cards then Moo have you covered.

That’s it. Please move along, there is nothing (more) here to see…
