Catching Up To What's Important

Recently, I was working as an overworked and underpaid developer in the downtown Orlando area. I realized that I much rather have the time to work on my own things, as well as spend more time with my family. It bothered me that I had to work 50-60 hour weeks.

Since I've freed up my schedule somewhat, I've got more time to focus on EcommerceForEveryone.com , my own start-up. I've been able to add some cool enhancements, fix a few bugs, and generally add more value to the service.

So using some of my free time wisely, I've updated to the latest version of Mac Os X, Zend Studio, Mamp Pro, and some other goodies. Cleared my mac book pro, and reformatted it into a rock solid development environment, very nice if I say so myself. I've got all of the premium tools at my disposal now.

I haven't blogged for a little while, so I though it'd be a good thing to catch up for those that actually read/follow this blog. I'm much more active on my twitter account, and I was posting a little more regularly on my PuReWebDev blog until I got lazy and stopped posting (bad habit).

Just as a follow up to my previous posting, nothing has happened to mysql as yet, I feared they'd be extinguished once Oracle bought Sun (which owned mysql at the time).

Not a whole lot of items of import to share at the moment, but I'll stop by and post some more once I've got more upgrades completed to E4E, maybe even post a few screen shots of the work.
