On Call Over New Year’s

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

I’m on call over New Year’s so no major plans for the holiday. Anticipating getting a lot of little things done around the apartment since I can’t get too far from a net connection. Otherwise I’d be tempted to drive out to Suffolk to chase Trumpeter Swan A60 which might well become the first accepted New York State record for this species. Maybe it will stick around till next weekend.

Starting a New Book

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

Today is an auspicious day. For the first time in several years I am putting fingers to keyboard to commence a completely new book, my first one since Effective XML. This is always an exciting and anxious time.

For the last few years I have written several second and third editions, and generated a copious amount of articles and conference presentations. However the book work has really slacked off. Quite a few good ideas never found a publisher; but the contract for the next book is now signed. It’s still a computer book, but it’s branching out into a new area I haven’t previously written about. Look for it in early summer 2007.
