Madking is back

It has been almost 2 years since I last posted here.  During that time I changed jobs twice.  Once to take a job that was too good to be true.  Then again when it turned out that it was too good to be true and they cancelled the project, leaving me looking for a job.

Not only have I not blogged in 2 years, but I also haven't competed in programming contests in that time frame.  I am finally getting back on that hobby horse.  I am participating in the TopCoder Open 2009, and as of right now I am one of 120 still standing (one of 9 Americans, if I counted right) in the Algorithm contest.  Tomorrow they narrow down to 45, so we'll see how that goes.

I figured if I could get back to the programming contests, I could also get back to the blog.  I am not going to promise any particular schedule, so I'd suggest subscribing to the RSS feed if you want to actually read what I write.  I will try to write more often than every 2 years.  :)

One other development since I last posted, is that we have gotten our own domain, and I picked a hosting site that specializes in hosting Ruby on Rails applications.  I have a couple applications that I am playing with on the site.  I am envisioning that as I work with them, they will inspire me for things to blog about.

I never know how to end posts, so I  am just going to end this one with a statement about ending posts.
