Last Day at Work
Sep 29, 2006

Today is my last day at BMC Software. It’s been two years as a contractor. I’ve had a lot of fun, lots of laughs, and did some really good things. It’s time, however, to move on. So, right now, I’m taking the posters off the wall, finishing up the last of the AdvancedITIL books in Traditional Chinese.

I really appreciate all the great people I got to work with at Remedy, BMC, and on the peripheral projects. I hope that we all stay in touch and that our cross paths in the future.


Nominee Project Update
Sep 7, 2006

About five months ago, I announced the Nominee Project here. Since I posted that, I’ve seen a few movies, started a reviews site with a couple of friends, and kept my database of nominees up to date.

Let’s take a look at my progress. It isn’t awards nomination time yet, so the total remains the same.

  • Total: 2,265 movies
  • Already viewed: 519 (22.91%)
  • Unavailable on DVD: 415 (18.32%)
  • Left to See: 1,331 (58.76%) — 267 (11.79%) in my Netflix queue

At this rate of 30 every five months, it should only take me about 18½ years to get through this list. I intend to pick up the pace dramatically. I’ve been a little busy with other things.
