    Howdy. This is Bob. The Bob of Bob Blog. This blog contains about five minutes of my thoughts each day. A record. A history. And occasionally worth reading.

    The radio silence has been painfully long. My excuse was a trip to Denver and a little bit of time off.

    I finished two books recently: Close to the Machine and The Bug both by Ellen Ullman. The first is more of an autobiography and a reflection of the motivations of programmers during the dot.com era. The subtitle is Technophilia and Its Discontents. Clever, fun, insightful. The second is a novel about an early software company, a bug, and the tester and programmer trying to find it. Clever, fun, insightful until about the last fifty pages. Then it breaks down for me as a mystery novel and returns a little too much to autobiographical. Both were good books for me to read -- reflect on my current reality and the life of a programmer.

    Lots of babies. Friends are having them like its the latest rave. Not yet...
