Sweatshop


:P
On this page:

Now that I got your attention. Let's talk about how it's done here at West Wind Technologies. I get asked all the time how I find the time to do all these different things at the same time.


Well, after a visitor here was going to blow my cover I have to come clean – I have a little help:

 

 

Yup and at 80% humidity there's all sorts of sweating going on, especially when there are no waves or wind. Late night coding sessions are no problems for these guys. Although in the winter time they get a bit sluggish and want to sleep a lot...

 

But they sure can code some mean C# code once they know there's an Ahi steak waiting for them!

 

Of course the bears have to go off and honey hunting now and then too, but it's a cheap payoff. That and the voracious appetite in raw fish. Luckily our neighbor is a fisherman who brings in tuna by the boat load literally.

 

Now you know…

Great photo! It confirms all my suspicions. The large bear seems to be into some serious coding! :)

Pooh Bear appears to be the team leader since he is obviously positioned in the middle to help both you and Fozzy Bear -- so now your cover is really blown.

Love reading your blog. Vacationing in Kauai right now and think about living in a more remote location than Bellingham and how to make that happen... Now I know; I just have to figure out how to train salmon!

SO, you are working with Papa and Baby... I assume Momma is out buying the Pizza and Jolt ?

Carl, you can't have him! (I doubt he can be lured either - the fresh fish supply is critical!)

Bertrand - you haven't seen these guys at Halo. The carpet in front of the console has a few tear marks.

Bob - this is an organic household. We only drink non-decaffinated Green Tea.

mabbe not...
