Paul's Tribute to Steve Jobs

Posted 08-24-2011 at 10:02 PM by NoeJeko
It wouldn’t feel right without my own tribute to Steve Jobs. I learned my passion for programming on the Apple IIe computer in 1989. I realize that Steve wasn’t with Apple at this time; however, the Apple II series was his work. I was 9 years old in the fourth grade and we had a program at Apollo Elementary that allowed us to learn a bit of programming. I can only recall one project from that year. We were working with graphics and I created one of the most complicated designs in the class – a...

What's so bad about learning?

I think I just saw one of the dumbest Facebook groups ever -- something about elementary schools lying about cursive writing in high school. Apparently over 100,000 people on Facebook are outraged that their elementary schools "tricked" them into learning cursive.

Since when did learning something for the sake of learning it become so unbearable? If I stop and think about some of the things I've learned I'm sure I could come up with quite a few "useless" subjects....

NoeJeko Update

Posted 05-11-2010 at 11:27 PM by NoeJeko
Wow, I say that I'm going to update this more and 6 months go by...

Many of our loyal /gg FTW! community members know that I'm actively engaged in school while continuing to work full time. We're not just talking a class here & there, I'm pulling a 24 credit/semester class schedule in addition to a 50-60 hour a week job.

I promised you guys that no matter how busy I got, I wouldn't abandon this site and I think I've done pretty good so far on this promise. Just...

California Drivers

Posted 08-18-2009 at 09:45 PM by NoeJeko
Ok, I've seen some bad driving in my life but the entire world pales in comparison to California. It's utterly stupid and I don't think half of these people should be on the road. They're also insanely "horn happy" and this bugs the hell out of me. I've recently, however, adopted a strategy to combat this.

I call it punitive honking. If someone blows their horn at me for no good damn reason, I simply ease in behind them and then lay on mine. After all, since I didn't...

I Swear I'm Going to Update...

Posted 08-13-2009 at 03:27 PM by NoeJeko
I know I've fallen out of the blogosphere for a while and I need to get back into it. That said, here's the latest.

What's NoeJeko Been Doing?

Well, in addition to my full time job as a web architect and full time /gg FTW manager, I started back to school full time at the end of June. I'm 51 hours from completing a Bachelor of Science in Management degree and I believe this will give me some much needed skills to take my career and the /gg FTW! community to the next...
