The Software Problem

Posted 06-13-2012 at 21:18 by TheBelly

I don't have a hardware problem. My problem is completely encompassed by the software running the hardware.

Perhaps a brief primer as to my background is in order. I'm a Soldier, and currently I'm sitting on a medium sized FOB in Afghanistan. This is my fourth deployment since 2006. I don't have a combat arms job, nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn last night.

So today's topic is all about how people here try and fix a software problem with hardware. When the Army...

I was told once that a smart person learns from their mistakes. I've also been told that a wise person can learn from someone else's mistakes.

As long as 'there' is either a the back of a tow truck or the mechanic's shop. I have loved my old piece of crap Esuvee for just over three years. I've been justifying it's continued limp-wristed existence by one simple factor: financial....

warrior class and awkward social moments

Posted 12-08-2010 at 01:03 by TheBelly

It turns out that I am a part of a very small percentage of Americans: I am a veteran of a war.

I won't attempt to claim that I'm some sort of war hero. I know people who are, and I've been right next to extraordinary people when they have outperformed the rest of us. Sometimes that's just the way these things happen.
