Programming competition

It has been about 10 years since I competed in a computing competition and couldn't resist the opportunity when Infusion decided to kick one off this past weekend. I managed to have a few answers accepted which was good. I also managed to keep focused on one thing for 5 hours which rarely happens these days and was somewhat refreshing. Did I win? Definitely not, though I did remind myself how it feels to be under pressure to solve logic problems and the winning feeling when the answer is accepted. That winning feeling is something that on my current engagements can take weeks or months to savor.

Well it is that time of year again and I am about to hop on a plane to Vancouver for the 19th annual competitions for Canadian youth from across the country. You can see the event details on the Skills Canada website. The event takes place all day is at BC Place on June 6th and 7th.  I am involved in the IT Systems Administration competition where competitors are required to demonstrate expertise in constructing and managing a basic computer network and related infrastructure for a small to medium sized business.

Clearing the mouth balls

It has been a long time since my last post. A combination of factors and priories have made blogging take a back seat. Since there is never a better time than now to do something you want to I am reincarnating my blog.
