Updates in the world of Morgan
With the major exception of USPS, Deutsche Post and DHL’s combined effort to loose my laptop, things are going great. I have been in Berlin for about three weeks now, landed an exciting new programming contract, looking like I found a rather cheap room to rent.
So what have I been up to….. Since I do not have my regular laptop, the programming lad been kinda limited. I am working on my ASUS EEEpc (which I finally fixed) which has been, well, a bit of a pain in the ass. But surprisingly I have gotten used to it. But I have also gotten a new laptop (free too). So tomorrow I will be back to it, getting some really work done on a full sized screen. But I still have been working on some interesting stuff.
For the new job, I have spent the last day familiarizing myself with the code already in place and doing a huge amount of cleanup. A lot of redundant code, good practices used in the wrong way, bad practices making things worse. But not too bad all in all. I have also been playing a lot with V8 which I am super excited about.
Bike News! I rode to Copenhagen two weeks ago. Well most of the way. Weather was not very cooperative and my friend I was riding with got injured to we ended up riding about half of it while hoping on and off trains. I am putting together a better mini-touring setup and will be riding to Geneva in about two weeks to race in the Swiss Bike Messengers Championship.
Also posted some pictures.
Okay, thats enough out of me.
