Right now, as I’m trying to do my own business development for the season, what I’m getting is lots of people asking if I know anyone to do validation work. But all the validation people seem too swamped to take anything new on. Is validation actually the place to be?
I had announced that the GeoMetrick Enterprises office will be moving. Now, I’m fairly certain that the move date will be in early September. I have notified current customers. Unlike past office moves, this time, I plan to take off a week to make the move in a leisurely fashion. I will be giving more information on the exact week of the move at a later time. Obviously, ongoing customers have priority with me during that week. For anyone wishing to contact me about starting new work who contacts me, that week, I will probably put you off until the following week.
Recently, Stack Overflow sent out information on its new Code of Conduct. Being a volunteer community, if people cause problems, they can’t fire the person but one form of redress is to kick the person out of the group. One method with which to make that fair is to make it clear what is and isn’t acceptable. Thus, a code of conduct is a good tool to put into place.
You might think you’re reading the wrong blog with “music” in the title but bear with me. First off, I do post what I think of as a “fun” post, every once in a while, usually in the summertime, when most of the project teams are off on vacation.

This Summer, GeoMetrick Enterprises will be moving its offices, yet again, and the planning for this made me think how much has changed since I first began thinking about all the issues of running my business, moving, and related issues.
Recently, I added new features to the blog to help fix a few issues the blog was having but also to provide new features to allow easier subscription to posts and comments and better notifications, overall. Today, I have removed all those features. They didn’t work quite as expected plus created some unexpected consequences. Now, we’re back to the old notification features.
We speak of the cost-benefit analysis to do before buying a system as if it really exists. It’s not as real as we pretend it is.
This roughly marks the start of GeoMetrick Enterprises. I started working on the company March 1st, 1996 and gotten all the insurance, registrations and such not long afterward. It’s strange to me to think that, this time last year, I had begun a W-2 job thinking I was starting a new phase in my life but, at this point, already knowing the job probably wasn’t going to last and that I would likely return, here. Here are some thoughts and observations based on these years in business.
