500th Post

This is my 500th post. I originally started the blog in December 2006 as a way of keeping up my writing skills, given that most engineers aren't given much of an opportunity to write prose.

I wrote a lot about crime mapping for a while.

I've blogged about the oil industry and posted a few wetland photos I took.

I've posted a little about New Orleans history.

I originally wanted to avoid posting about politics, but later decided to because, let's face it, it's a part of everything and you might as well embrace it.

And of course, there's Patches.

The best part about blogging is the people I've met. Maitri, Oyster, Adrastos, Jeffery, Homan, Greg, Varg, Ashley, Ray, Leigh, Dambala, and, of course, Candice. I also can't forget about the great Rising Tide conferences, especially when Dangerblonde gets to kick some Commie tail.

Don't know what's going to happen in the future, but I'm sure it'll be an adventure.

Here's to 500 posts and many more ahead.

Hey, who says engineers can't write good? That's jest nonsense!

Congrats and peace,

Writing skill is a use-it-or-lose-it deal, so I might as well get some practice in.
