On the Hunt

Posted by in Major Events

It’s Saturday afternoon…a pleasant 70 degrees in San Jose, California. We’re parked outside an apartment complex, waiting for our 2 o’clock viewing appointment, applications in hand. I feel like a vulture circling over my next meal. Brady and I spent all day Friday prowling around Santa Clara, San Jose, Sunnyvale, and Cupertino, searching for an apartment to rent. We had some help from a relocation specialist, which certainly made things a lot less stressful. But let’s face it, apartment hunting is still exhausting. Apartment hunting in the Bay Area has…read more

Bracketology

Posted by in Weekly Life

Bracketology – “the process of predicting the field of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, named as such because it is commonly used to fill in tournament brackets for the postseason… “A bracketologist’s credibility is judged on how many teams he predicts correctly being in the tournament and the average difference between the bracketologist’s projected seed and the actual seed assigned by the NCAA Selection Committee.” And according to the great Wikipedia…apparently I’m good at it so far.

I guess you could say it’s my drug of choice. That being said, we decided to tackle the 2010 St. George Marathon…and the months of training that necessarily precede…read more

Go Jazz Go!

Posted by in Weekly Life

Because Brady and Kyle won the audience choice award at the Crexendo competition…we got tickets to the Jazz’s first playoff game at home, against the Denver Nuggets. We weren’t clear up in the nosebleed section, either. How about the 13TH ROW? Kyle and Whitney were there too, of course…and yes, we all wore our NoteSync shirts. That’s the view from our seats, and I didn’t even have to use the zoom on my camera! I’ve been to a few Jazz games before, but never a playoff game, and NEVER closer…read more

NoteSync

Posted by in Major Events, Weekly Life

Brady and his friend Kyle won the Crexendo Online Marketing competition a couple weeks ago. (I know, I’ve killed all the suspense. But since it happened a couple weeks ago…most of you who care to read this probably already know. Continue reading if you wish.) It all started over Christmas break, when Brady got an idea: “Taking notes should be simpler.” (insert Windows 7 commercial here.) He found a little desktop app called Notational Velocity and loved it, but it was only available for Mac users. And since Brady is…read more
