Things continue to be busy at work as the QuickBooks 2007 release schedule winds down. I’ll be working all this weekend in order to be able to slip out of the bay area next weekend undetected so’s I can watch Slumberslam 06 down in San Dog. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on about a thousand lucha libre masks; can I mortgage my non-existant house to get a little bit of extra funding? Seriously, one mask for every day of the year.
I’m finishing up the first season of Battlestar Galactica and it’s pretty good. Like Firefly, it’s nice to see a Sci-Fi show that doesn’t treat its viewers like mongrel idiots. Reccommended to anyone who watches the miniseries and likes it.
I’ve got my plane tickets for the September trip to Wisconsin. I’ll be flying into Milwaukee September 9th and flying out of Madison on September 22nd. The last three days of the trip I’ll be doing Intuit recruiting at Wisconsin. For the thousands of Wisconsin college grads interested in getting a job at Intuit who are reading this, please come correct on the mic. Don’t come whack on some old school crap, or whatever. I want to hear about good software engineering skills and discipline. I want to hear about unit tests, about design patterns, and about iterative design and development. I don’t care if you’ve never used .Net, or Java, or whatever (though if you’ve used Ruby on Rails I might want to take you out and pick your brain). Basically, prove to me that I wouldn’t want to shove an icepick through my own skull if I reccommended you for hire and you ended up working on my very own team.
I’m bringing my HOLLLARDOLLLARS to San Dog, how many lucha libre masks will they buy?
