Going through my archives, I found A LOT of old videos. Here's one. It's not the most flattering. Goalies, remember ... if you come out to the blue line to play the puck ... and it's a full contact tournament ... you are fair game

My 9-5 job has been going well. Challenging, motivating and interesting. A very good combination. The one thing it lacks is the direct hands-on with COOL technology. In the past week or so I have revisited an old friend called Cassandra. I had turned to Cassandra in a moment of extreme delirium caused by a very steep and difficult learning curve I was having with respects to DFS and Hadoop / HDFS.
At the time, Cassandra wasn't mature. This has changed.
Concepts for me are much more clear, and a technology now exists that I can use to help further my desire to challenge myself and to help create some fantastic "things".
This evening I endeavoured with some degree of success to install Nginx on Windows instead of the Apache web server. Subsequently, I installed PHP (non-threaded version) and integrated that with Nginx. Now, the problem I have is trying to get Thrift running with this setup so that I can quickly model some concepts.
Regardless, it's fun to challenge yourself.
