Taking notes while tinkering with:

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been 3 years since my last ‘Hacker Dad’ post. And guess what, I’m still trying to find the time to work on self-motivated projects for fun, learning and profit. Granted, I’ve had a second kid (a daughter) 16 months ago, so that reset the countdown until they are more manageable.

I DID get to do some fun DIY for her 1st Birthday, However.

Step 1: Find The Time

My newborn son arrived 3 weeks ago, weighing in at a whopping 9.4 lbs. My poor wife battled out 30 hours of labor, and finally the doctors insisted that she have a C-section. Now we’re learning as we go and trying to keep our heads above water.

Surprisingly, I have been able to get coding sprints in and accomplish things here and there. Sleep has been scarce, however.

At this point, I have a strong desire to be both of two things:

  • A good father and husband
  • A hacker who can productively make cool things

Step 1 for me will be to find the time.
