UPDATES are Coming!!!

Well, it is close to the end of 2014. So many things has happened. I pretty much have abandoned my blog for most of the year, but there are so many things that is going on in my life that I think I should start posting things on my blog again. Now rules for posting about my life will change a great deal in this new world of Information security and personal security, so I will only talk about generic thing that I think will contribute to the world. I will minimize talking about any thing that can Identify me. All travel pictures will likely contain few personal images and posted after the trip is over and never during the trip.

I am also thinking about changing the theme of my website. In 2012, I did a 365 challenge for photographs. I did it and it was harder than I expected. I will try to do a 52 challenge which means I will post a least one entry a week. I will hope to keep it meaningful.

A New Start

It’s been a long while since I wrote on my blog, but I feel this is an important occasion to update my blog.  So today is my first day at my new job with BlueCat Networks.  After close to 7 years working at Sparling, I finally called it quits, little over a week ago, on Valentines day (2/14/2014).  It was a difficult decision, but it was time to move on.  It’s always the people that I missed the most.  So for the last week, I’ve been throwing away everything, reshaping my office, and preparing for my new work day today. During my week off, I’ve been really enjoy my time off, like I said, I been cleaning up the house, walking 10K steps a day and trying to eat healthy.  It’s pretty amazing. So today starts my new work life.  In a few minutes I will be on a conference call with my new boss and start my new work day. Wish me luck.

Weekend / Monthly Update with Min-Hsao Chen

So it has been a very long time since I wrote in my blog and since I am in the middle of my craziness at work on a Sunday, what better time to write a little bit about what have been going on so I won’t forget all the little things.

So Let’s start from now and go back to where we last left off…

Today.. I am working in the office today… overwhelmed with 2 major projects. Oh and I also receive my new glasses… which is incredibly fast.  I ordered them on line on 05/20/2010.  Which means I got them in 2 days!!!!! oh and it was only 15 dollars with lens and coatings and all!!! baby!!!

I may post a picture later if I have time.

Yesterday (05/22/2010), we spend an entire day looking for carpets and paint colors…. why? well… look below… 🙂

This past Friday (05/21/2010), I was suppose to be a home owner, however, the stupid lender decide not to fund in the last minute and then decided that they made a mistake and will be funding me.  So I will be closing on Monday!!! Oh … I guess I will be a home owner soon!!! yeah!!!

This past Friday was bike to work day, and I biked to work going my fastest getting to work for an 8AM meeting.  54minutes from my townhome to my office!!! just short of 14mile/hour average time.  I am getting stronger.  In the afternoon, I took on the challenge of 8th Ave NE going south bound.  Yes, it was a super step hill and on top of that it was pouring !!!!  I was soaked!!!

Wednesday, my folks arrived in Seattle.

Monday, I biked to work with my new bike seat… I felt the comfort and more power!!!

Updating my blog and just chilling…

The last couple of days been pretty busy, with my family visiting… I moved from the master bed room to the guest bedroom, and from the guest bedroom to the office. But the exciting thing is my parents and my uncle from taiwan are all here in Seattle visiting me. It is good to be with family 🙂

So as for work… it has been pretty busy. Good news is that we got the NY project. Even after the lack of onsite interview… YEAH YEAH!!!! so NYC here I come.

Welcome to the new!!!

Well… after one week of messing around with my server, php, WordPress, and blogger, I finally migrated over to WordPress for my blog.  I debated with moving my blog to a paid host, but in the end, I decided to stay with my own server for now.  I think I will move it to a paid server one day, but just not yet.  I still have few more things to touch up before I can call it complete, but please look around and let me know what you think.  Thanks and welcome back!!!

PS… All the header pictures are from my photographs in 2009. Enjoy!!

1706 blog entries ago…

Many years ago, I started this blog with Today, I found out that blogger will no longer support the FTP blogging support.

So what does that mean? Well, that will mean that my current blogging format will change before March 26th. I knew this was too good to last forever. I was really lazy and was going to sit on until I really have to. Now I am forced to move to a different blogging format.

In the next few weeks I will see what I can do in my server to host my own blogging engine. It will most likely be wordpress.

so stay tuned!!!

Still back filling my blog post

I know it is very unusual, but I am still back filling my French Vacation posts… the notes are there, but I just need to fill it all in with pictures and other goodie goodies. Hopefully, I will get a chance to do more tomorrow. As soon as all the posts are done, I will post all the pictures of the trip up.

it’s all over … again

and … now i am sad 🙁


I went outside to check my mail after lunch and after watching Gundam Seed Destiny and I recieved this letter from ELSES. It is the testing center for my Professional Engineering exam. It was a very very thin letter. So I thought to myself… oh no… I don’t like the sign of this. I open it up and WHAM!

it says… Congratulations … Blah Blah Blah… Examination Status : Passed

I am still trying out the template

Today I started my blogger account. Hummm… we will see how it goes.
