Vista Transit

EnGraph just installed its first deviated fixed route and curb-to-curb combined ParaPlan solution!  I have learned a ton here this week in Sierra Vista, AZ and how they run their unique transit operation. I’d like to thank Rex, Nacho, Steve and Helen for a great install/update!

The Ole Village Greens Golf Course

Peez took me out to one of our old college favorites 2 weekends ago.  The course is called THE VILLAGE GREENS and it resides in lovely Ozawkie, KS near Perry Lake.  We played this course quite a bit in our later days in college because it was cheap and fun.  All we had was Alvamar when we were at KU and she’s a little pricey for college kids.  Anyway, it was humid and hot but good times.  After, we stopped in Oskaloosa to watch the final round of the PGA at some local ‘downtown’ bar called Angie’s?

At client site in Sheridan, WY

I am here at Sheridan Minibus and Misty took me out around town a bit after picking me up from the airport. This first pic is for Timmay! Then here are a few pics from the site… Very odd weather here in Wyoming :)  That is my hotel and it looks like it is on fire.

ParaPlan Install at Transpo in South Bend

I spent 7 days in South Bend implementing ParaPlan Pro at Transpo.  Moving into a new software package is always a challenge, but we all worked many long hours to make it work!  I made many great friends when I was there...especially Reece and Jeannette who worked late into the evening with me setting up their system.  Here are some pics from my trip... Touchdown Jesus on campus at Notre Dame.  Nice

Allie's Acer Netbook

We pulled the trigger a while back and bought Allie this little laptop that she just adores!

Babymoon at the Lodge

Allie and I are getting ready to be parents.  We took a weekend vacation down to the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri.  We had a perfect room at the Lodge of the Four Seasons.  We had breakfast in bed and read our baby books... *name the movie We then had a duet massage/spa and an incredible dinner... I wonder if my daughter will someday read this post.  Hmmm...we are so excited for you to join us!

Listening To Obama

This is simply a personal timestamp...I am at the office in Lenexa listening to Barack's inauguration speech on  Going to watch it tonight with Allie and BabyA on the way!

Software Support Standard

As the novelty of software development has worn off and many users now depend on your software, I have realized the following and needed to make a note of it... When users describe something that is happening with the software you developed/ is always explained in a way you never expected thus leading to more questions.  I am not saying that an end-user's explanation is wrong, it is just not how you would have personally described it as a developer.  All I know is that there is always something wrong/unexpected in their experience and it requires attention.
