From the monthly archives: August 2005

I just bought an iMac. Seriously. About one hour ago. I think I was possessed by some kind of demon at the time. I mean, there is no way I can rationally justify this purchase. So I bought an iPod to go with it. There is a deal this summer for student (free ipod mini or 225$ off). Don’t tell anybody.

No, I’m not going to complain that I’ve been too busy to update my blog. Anyway, it seems I post once a month. But I’m going to complain that I’m lacking time to read everything I would like to. For example, I haven’t read the eXtreme Programming mailing list on yahoo groups for more than two months. Some nights, if I find a couple of interesting articles on my regular round of websites, plus the blogs I watch, a couple of hours pass without notice. Add to that the pile of books sitting on my desk (without counting all the classic sci-fi I would like to read) and… well you get the picture. What’s worse is that I’m in a kind of flux (not sure if it’s the right word here) with books related to software engineering. I feel like I’ve read enough about Agile and XP for a while. I’m looking to expand into other subjects. Last night I started The Secrets Of Consulting by Jerry Weinberg and have to say I quite enjoyed the first chapter. I think I’ll have to buy a copy for a friend who just started some consulting work. I’ll post more about it in the coming weeks.
