Exactly what is GOOOOG? Yeah, it got me too. I went searching like an idiot trying to figure out what it meant. It looks like somebody plugged in an easter egg... Anyway, I'm sure somebody will read this once they fall for it. :)

For an attempt at an explanation, head over to if you have not done so already:

Lucas Hardbarger from Data Dynamics...

Well, the .NET Rocks Interview is up and ready for your listening pleasure. I am so pumped!! I thought the interview went really well. I talked about our products and made quick mentions to our new, upcoming products. I feel that I gave just enough information to entice people to check out our site. One problem I (personally) noticed is that I pitched one of our products incorrectly. It was a quick, subtle mistake, but...

The coolest part of the episode (yes, even cooler than the fact that I got interviewed by .Net Rocks!) is that Carl and Richard commended Data Dynamics for being "the pioneers of sponsoring community events". Very cool! Thanks Carl. Thanks Richard.

Here is a link to the show:
My interview is at: 22:54

After hearing my voice on the show, I realized that I sound like I'm 13. Do I really sound like that?

Oh yeah, Carl and Richards "shout out" to Data Dynamics is at around the 32 minute mark too.

Enjoy, and feel free to comment below. :)

Hardbarger Spell Check

The funny-side of having such a cool last name. :)
I thought this little prompt was 'blog worthy'... Another cool one was 'headbanger'... that one almost got the 'Replace' button. Posted by Picasa

Country Girl Liz

Here is a picture of Lizzie leading Opal Pony. She lead her all over the yard and Opal did a real good job leading for her. Bill Hofacker (our farrier) said that Opal needs to get more excercise. :) She spent all summer in the pasture eating grass and getting fat. Posted by Picasa

First Blogger Post

OK, I finally did it. I decided to create a new blog today. I've been talking about it for some time now and just kept putting it off because I was fine with my old blog interface. However, lately I've been having problems with my old blog. Today did it for me... I wasn't able to log in to manage my blogs, and my colleague and I kept getting server errors when linking around my old posts. They were very random errors; some were 'network errors', others were 'unspecified errors', and so on.

The biggest problem with my old blog (that I hope Blogger has solved) was that it was using SubText and I was getting pummeled with comment spam. SubText still hasn't created a patch for this (that I know of). I decided to get on board and create a blogger account. I'm a big Google believer and... need I say more? I'm pretty excited to integrate my this blog with Picasa and other Google savvy apps.
