I’m a 15 year radio veteran. I’ve seen the debate between high-end and low-end microphones both in-person and on message boards. Usually, the argument ends with snide comment like: “The Behringer is crap because it’s only $98 dollars!”… That’s not very scientific, so I wanted to study this on a technical level.

My brother called me today, telling me about his company wanting to move their web development and testing environment in-house. They had already downloaded Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty), but didn’t know how to get Apache, MySQL, or PHP installed. He was signed into gTALK, so I sent him one command line…about 5 minutes later, they had the LAMP stack running.
Here is my setup on an Amazon Medium Instance using APC: Continue reading
WordPress 3.5 beta 1 was released a couple weeks ago, and it included the new Twenty Twelve theme. While looking at style.css, I noticed they’re using “REM” to set font sizes and margins. I had NO idea what an REM was. In fact, I just started using EM’s in other child-themes I was building. So, once again, I turned to Google and started reading. Continue reading

In January 2010, I started my new gig as Chief Engineer at Bluewater Broadcasting. The new job required me to move to Montgomery, Alabama (about 2 hours from my son Chase). It’s been a very difficult 3 years, 5 months, and 19 days – not only for me, but Chase as well.
Now that I’m done at Bluewater, we’re moving back to southern Alabama. In-fact we’re moving into a house right next door to Chase.
Both Tara and I are looking forward to being part of his day-to-day life again. One question we keep getting asked is, “How does Tara feel about living next door to your ex-wife?”
The truth is: my ex-wife and I haven’t so much as looked at each other funny in over 5 years. In fact, before the divorce was final both the ex-wife and I agreed to never let our personal feelings get in the way of our first priority: Chase.
Besides, we both re-married…and she’s the one who found the house next door.
Both Tara (my wife) and Erin (the ex-wife) were raised in broken homes. They know first hand the incredible amount of bull-shit kids must endure when dealing with divorce .
So, “Yes”. Tara is “cool” with living next door to my ex-wife. She doesn’t look at the situation negatively. We’re all adults here, and besides our kids are watching.
