  2. Back to Chicago

    I really liked my gig at Thomson Reuters and had a great time working on my team. Reuters managed to gather very smart people, both in the US and in China. I had a blast.

  4. My First Patent Application

    My friend William just alerted me that our patent application has been published on the USPTO website. This dates back to our days at TT and it’s titled “System, Method, and Tool for Synthetic Order Recovery”. While William already has a few patents in his pocket, this one is my first 🙂

  5. Migrated Słownik Polonijny

    Last night I migrated my dad’s Słownik Polonijny to my DigitalOcean docker box. Originally it lived on Heroku (it’s a Python Flask site), but I’ve been trying to consolidate my sites under one umbrella. No need to update you links, since the domain name is the same.

  8. Free Snowflakes

  9. Vanity plates

    I’ve been spending a good chunk of time commuting to and from work. Most of it being stuck in traffic on I-290. It can be a miserable experience, but listening to the radio helps. I also like looking around and spotting different license plates. Apparently custom plates are quite popular in Illinois.

  10. Seven Deadly Sins

    I was getting my morning coffee ready, and I accidentally knocked over a wine bottle. Luckily no spillage or broken glass, but it made me glance at the wine label. The Seven Deadly Zins.
