Working Out

Posted in life update by beebe4 on July 12, 2008

So I have started doing a Bootcamp through work… it really really sucks. It is kicking my butt and it feels good.

I am thinking that I should have Sherry do this with me.

Koders purchased

Posted in life update, work by beebe4 on May 1, 2008

So for those of you that have not heard, I am working at a great new company called Hashrocket, based out at the beach. More on that later, but I wanted to also fill you in that my old company has been purchased by Black Duck as of last week.

I keep tabs on the news reports that are coming out about it, and this is the closest thing I have to a mention in them:

But Levin says Koders’ three employees, including Rush, will be retained on a consulting basis, and will continue to work from their current location in Santa Monica.

Check out the full article at Xconomy.

The move actually makes a lot of sense, as Black Duck offers larger companies insight into their open source usage, and Koders obviously knows a thing or two about that industry.

Mac Tips

Posted in mac, tips by beebe4 on February 25, 2008

I just bought my first mac (MacBook Pro 15″ with souped up HDD) and am going to have a transition period where I learn how to use the mac versus a PC. So I have decided to start blogging tips I learned.

So here is tip #1:
– to delete to the right of the cursor (on the laptop), hold down the function key while hitting delete
– to delete to the left until the beginning of a word, hold down the ctrl key
– to delete to the left until the beginning of the line, hold down the command (apple) key.
