New Years Resolutions

The new year is on us.  I don't know about you, but I have made all sorts of mistakes and bad choices that I need to fix. 

• Do you need to make a resolution to follow at your job?  

• Do you resolve to get a new job?  

• Do you resolve to automate something?

• Do you resolve to turn a machine in to code?

• Do you resolve not to be Brent?

• Do you resolve to explain to Austin Devops why Opscode changed its name to Chef? :-)

What ever _your_ resolution come ready to tell us about it in this format:

• 2 to 3 minutes.

• Problem statement

• Resolution that solves the problem

• Short justification

We're also excited to be bringing Ken Stark from http://reglue.org to the meetup.  Reglue is a nonprofit org that recycles computers to those who would not easily afford them.   They're currently in need of working laptops and USB wireless adaptors and USB DVD/CD drives.  Ken will be able to accept donations on the night of this type of gear and you can talk to him about other gear ( such as desktops ) that you might want to donate.


The rest of the evening will be simply mixing with those who share our problems/resolutions. 


Please post your topic in the comments here.  Generate interest.  Get other excited.

See you in 2014!

Boyd

      Very funny and apropos, Matt. A major component of communication is listening.

    I'm more along the lines of the get-another-job thing.
