Working on the recent effort to support tabular data from spreadsheets we now support the ability to integrate and display data from external databases.

Jeff's Ramblings

"My name is George. I'm unemployed and live with my parents."

One of the classic Seinfeld episodes is when George realizes that his base instincts are always wrong and that he should start doing the opposite of what he would normally do.
George Costanza Does The Opposite

As I am preparing to launch Geode Systems I've realized that I am doing the exact opposite of most of the advice about technology companies I've seen and been given. Through my own incompetences I've naturally not followed most of this advice but now I have an intellectual tool learned from the Costanza school that I can use to legitimize my contrarian ways (at least, assuming that we the collective are George and not me the individual)

I've been hiking a couple of times west of Carter Lake off of the Pole Hill Road in the north fork of the Little Thompson river. This is very rough country but there is some very cool geology.

December has been a great month for hiking. We had a bit of snow this past weekend. I've spent some time up west of Pinewood Springs. Its an interesting time of year to hike in this area as all of the Forest Service gates are closed and there's not many folks out and about.

Wow, the temperature dropped amazingly fast this morning. It went from 58 this morning to the current 21.

I have spent a couple of days the last week hiking the drainages west of Gross Reservoir. You access this area from Magnolia road up Boulder canyon. There is a trailhead down Forsyth Gulch on County RD 68 and a gated road you can park off of Lazy Z road further west.
