The Guide

"This blog is dedicated to making sense out of the shifting landscape of IT Management. Just when we thought we had a good handle on managing technology, the job we thought we knew is being threatened by strange acronym’s like ITIL, CMMI, COBIT, ect.. Suddenly the rules have changed and we are not sure why. The goal of this blog is to offer an element of sanity and logic to what can appear to be chaos."


Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy

"In many of the more relaxed civilizations on the Outer Eastern Rim of the Galaxy, the Hitch Hiker’s Guide has already supplanted the great Encyclopedia Galactic as the standard repository of all knowledge and wisdom, for though it has many omissions and contains much that is apocryphal, or at least wildly inaccurate, it scores over the older more pedestrian work in two important respects.

First, it is slightly cheaper: and secondly it has the words DON’T PANIC inscribed in large friendly letters on its cover."
~Douglas Adams

On a personal note

cool hmm Everyone needs a hobby!


Mine is deemed interesting by many and bizarre by others.

You see my family and I use multi billion dollar military satellites to find Tupperware containers hidden in the forest full of odd trinkets you may find at a dollar store.

This is actually a worldwide sport called Geocaching and it entails the use of a hand held GPS to locate hidden caches around the world. In a sense you can think of Geocaching as a fusion between orienteering, treasure hunting and hiking.

I have three boys 11 and under and it is a great way to spend a sunny Saturday afternoon.

What is interesting is that there are caches hidden all over the world and most of us walk or drive by them on a weekly basis without even knowing they exist.

For more information about Geocaching and to do a search around your home coordinates follow the link below.

Cheers.
