Why I'm Not Posting Very Much
I have lowered the frequency of new posts due to many parts of my life becoming very stressful and busy. Unfortunately, I'm helping to bring a lot of this on myself. These things are the temporary busy-ness makers:
- Brand new house
- 3 current projects at work
- Redesigning my website
- Getting back into shape (started Monday, April 17th)
- Very frequent obligations between churchy things and family things.
Fortunately, we are pretty well moved into our house. Now it's just a matter of what/when we paint and decorate various rooms. The house comes primed with white, so it's up to us to introduce colors into our abode.
Don't let the 3 projects at work sound "good". I'm actually done with one and the other two should be done in a week or two (and I'm not even close). After that I have 0 projects on the horizon...ie, who's gonna pay me?
I am very slowly
redesigning my website ( www.jason-moran.com
). If you've stumbled by there in recent months you will notice it is out of date and completely not maintained any longer. I hope to revamp it and start to use it once again in the coming months.
Getting back into shape will hopefully be easy. I've been consistent at lifting for almost three years now, so the last three months of slacking are probably a fixable oddity. I will admit, however, that it is humbling to have to lift half of the weight and not to be able to run for more than 8 minutes.
Lastly I have had lots of commitments eating up too much of my time. The timing with those was just a pain because we were busy elsewhere.
The end is within site and I should start blogging more frequently by the end of the first week of May (May 1st is my birthday, so that will be yet another busy time period). Oh, and I promise my blogs will not be so boring once I have more time to "waste" on them.

Oh yizzle. I'm not even 100% a software engineer
as far as my job title goes, but based on my college education I'm actually exactly what a software engineer is.
I knew there was a reason why I loved my job ;)
Holy geez, this is the most freaking cool thing ever. I am a big fan of Lost. Lost is the show where Oceanic Flight 815 breaks apart in the air between Australia and Los Angeles and crashes into an island.
Check out this link (and view it in the world-wide view): Map of the island in Lost
A set of numbers are very important to the story line of the show:
4 8 15 16 23 42
If you combine them into longitude and latitude coordinates (4.815 and 162.342) you will get the following map:
Oh, on a side-note I moved into my new house. I'd show you pictures of the move but we totally forgot to take pictures :(
