GeoMetrick Enterprises’ Anniversary

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.

Three Observations on Agile and Other Methodologies

I keep hearing complaints of projects who go sprint-after-sprint with their Agile project and can’t make progress. Regardless, the methodology, I’ve got three observations to pass along to readers.

With that said, I found a workaround and willing to share what I have.

Old Blog Links Deleted

However, both links were in operation until I moved the blog back in September. At that time, outonalims.wordpress.com became obsolete.

Post 700: This Blog is Back On-Line

In my last post, I let readers know that this blog would start having downtime and a changeover beginning on Friday, September 8th, 2017. Also, just by chance, today’s post is Post #700.

The blog has been moved to a new host and is finally back up and in working order. You’ll notice it looks a bit different. While I’d call it a work in progress, right now, most of what needs to work is working and it was finally close-enough to notify subscribers that it’s back. You’ll likely see more changes in the near future but most are minor cosmetic changes.
