Looking back at 2010 I can confidently say the biggest news I was hit with was that I am having triplets. A pair of identicals girls and a singleton girl to be exact. This is, of course, in addition to my two year old son. I always wanted four kids so I am pretty stoked! The actual due date is Apri... [More]

Selling RSWarrior.com

January 24, 2011

In the Summer of 2002, I was 24 years old, single, had a good number of friends who rode motorcycles, and my 1989 Suzuki GSXR 750 just broke down. I purchased the Yamaha Road Star (Star Cycles) Warrior in June, which, at the time, was one of the fastest and best handling power cruisers in the market... [More]

In my last post I wrote what I planned on building for my home developer rig. A few changes were made. * I went with an extra hard drive and I will run RAID 0. * I measured the compartment in my desk where I planned on putting my case and lo and behold it was too small for the Antec case I Picked...

New Home PC / Developer Rig

August 14, 2009

In honor of Windows 7, and my increasing frustration with my 4 year old DELL computer, I figured I would pony up and build myself a nice developer rig. Even though it is my home computer my typical usage is work related; Visual Studio(s), SQL Server, IIS, Virtual Machines, etc... My wife's typical u... [More]

Moved Domain Name

December 1, 2008

Almost two years after I thought about phasing out my online moniker I have done it. I have officially moved the carknee.com domain to seankearney.com. Redirects are in place and there shouldn't be any noticable change for the few people that read this site. The Feedburner feed is unchanged and will... [More]

It's a sad day for DMB fans

August 20, 2008

What sad news. LeRoi Moore, The Dave Matthews Band saxophonist has died. I have been a DMB fan since the mid ninetees when they first broke out and to be honest, they were all I listened to for many, MANY, years. I have slowly began to venture away from them over the last couple years, but to this ... [More]

So, in my last post title, "My life may be forever different," I shared with you that I am getting a dog. I did get the dog, and his name is Wilson. Has my life been changed, absolutely. Having Wilson has been a fun experience with its doses of pain and adjustment. But, I digress, this post isn't ab... [More]

Moving On

May 30, 2007

It is time for me to move on from my current employer. I have been with this company since 2000 (with a brief stint elsewhere) and it is really time to go. As is the case with most developers, if you don't learn new things on a daily basis your job can get pretty boring. I tried to keep myself going... [More]
