Las Vegas Snow 2018

It's been a long time since I remember seeing snow in the Las Vegas Valley. In fact, the last time I recall there being a snowstorm was December of 2006. I will never forget that storm, as I was taking the first significant vacation from my job at Nevada State College and traveling to San Diego to play tourist for a week.

Dragon Warrior

During my holiday vacation, there were many mornings where the baby had gone for a nap and Teri wasn't quite yet awake. I found myself revisiting memories from my childhood of playing the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) with my Mom. I loaded up the ROM for Dragon Warrior on my Recalbox and set off on a quest to save the princess and rid the land of a tyrant in all of its 8-bit glory.

Robot Life (Enhanced)

I've officially been on holiday time since December 15th @ 5:01pm. I ended my last day of work before vacation by taking my team from UNLV to Giordano's for deep dish pizzas and libations.

Aside from work and post-Thanksgiving holiday prep, I've been anxious for Christmas Day to roll around. Rosslyn and Teri have some great gifts and surprises in store for them!

OpenTable Affiliate Referral Links - Part 1

Teri recently applied and was accepted as an OpenTable Affiliate, so that we can provide the convenience of online OpenTable reservations to our readers. What we received is a useful branding press kit, some branding requirements, and the credentials and URIs for accessing a RESTful API. I love the opportunities to work on my Python skills, as well as learn new things, but I'm a bit baffled why OpenTable doesn't offer a simple WYSIWYG widget builder for affiliates that are restuarant gurus not programmers. Obviously, the RESTful API is awesome for programmers and the Warmest Robot, but the Warmest Human thought it was a bit much to ask of a non-technical user. With a widget builder, OpenTable Affiliates could build a referral link that meets branding requirements without having to ask an INTP for help. I've decided to help others on the net by posting my method and code in series of articles.

Warmest Robot + Warmest Human

As you all know, I have recently revamped the blog and transitioned from Blogger to Squarespace. While I was making that transition, Teri had discussed her interest in starting a blog of her own to publish product and restaurant reviews, chronicle her adventures in motherhood, and showcase her vast knowledge of craft beers and breweries.

VMworld 2017

It has been 9 years since I’ve attended VMworld. A lot has changed in the company’s portfolio. The conference is massive and has taken over the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

Reflecting on The Recent Past

For me, the negative years all preceded it. 2013-2015 were some of my life's darkest points, in which I lost my closest family. With a different death occurring each consecutive year, I lost all three people that helped raise me: my maternal grandmother, father, and mother.

Higher Education IT Management

I have been functioning as an IT engineer, architect, and manager for over a decade in Nevada.

It has been both interesting and challenging. Often times insufficient budgets, high expectations, and a lack of formal business process and structure (ie: governance) presents extreme difficulty in meeting and continuously delivering quality services.
