It was a mostly fun three day experience, and I got to do a lot and see some cool folk. (Unfortunately never got a chance to hang out with The Peach.) And I didn't let a little cold slow me down. While it would be nice to have a bit more time, there are some... Continue Reading →
460 49th Street, Oakland California.
It feels like another lifetime, but I used to live in that house in the middle, albeit very briefly. It was my first Bay Area residence, from August to September, 2000. I moved out so fast because my crazy roommate squandered the rent money for her "personal needs." I didn't spend much more time in... Continue Reading →
Quick Bay Area trip update.
Well it's Tuesday morning and I'n taking BART yo the East Bay, Walnut Creek to be exact. (Astute readers can probably figure out why.) Anyways, finished up a decent first day in the Bay Area.

Yep, work! It's a paid-for trip in most senses of the term. This is pretty exciting, as I haven't... Continue Reading →
Ricky Point Mini-Ramble: 21 January 2014
I wasn't feeling too hot on Tuesday. It could have been due to my lack of sleep the night previous, or it could be an impending cold. This was a bummer because since the weather was good (sunny, mid-40sF) I wanted to go on a nice ride. But I knew when I woke up I... Continue Reading →
