Workstation throwback

Just ran across this photo of a desk from years gone by. This was my workstation when I was working at Freshmuse as the Director of Engineering in 2012.

Desk with a view

Now that I am married I am again a landlubber :'(. The upside is that I can setup my full office space again. I have wanted a true standing desk for a couple years. I have been experimenting with the concept using a musical keyboard stand and my bass guitar case. So far I am really digging it. And being able to look out at my 1965 VW Bus is an added bonus.

Sync shared Google calendars with your iPhone or CalDAV device

When you add your Google account to an iPhone or CalDAV enabled device by default you will only see events from your calendar. If you someone has shared a calendar with you there is no clear way to make it available on your phone. Google has a tool to enable shared calendars to synch however to push you toward the Google apps Google has not made it easy for anyone else. Lucky for us the tool is simple to get to and use. Simply follow this link and check the calendars you would like to sync to your phone.

Last days at Microsoft

This photo harkens back to late 2012 when I worked at Microsoft Open Technologies Inc. In the final days of my tenure there I had dismantled my workstation and dropped down to the MacBook Air and my trusty iPad 1st gen as an external monitor.

Pyramid of monitors

I ran across this photo while looking through some folders. This workstation is from 2013. Hard to believe that was 2 years ago!
