A Really Cheesy Blog Entry (But I just don’t care)

Now I own a lot of programming books. And pretty much without fail, in the front of these monolithic manuals is a short praise for the authors wife/kids dogs etc etc. Now you have to ask your self how romantic that is. I mean being thanked in the front of a geek bible just wouldn’t/shouldn’t cut it in the romance stakes. Shame guy.

None the less they all do it, go check some out, they all have it there somewhere, bold as brass. I have to say I think this is pure cheese.

But something happened to me this week, my beautiful girl asked me to marry her, and I accepted. Leap year thing apparently. I didn’t know that, and thought it was a big joke, not quite the reaction she was expecting, but I soon realised the error of my ways, and quickly accepted.

And I felt I just had to write a little about it, as it’s a good thing, which I feel I want to share. So I can see why these reference manual authors do it now, it’s something you feel good about that you don’t mind people seeing. That’s my new opinion any how.

I first met my lady 10 years ago, when I had been single for more time than I care to remember, I had basically almost decided to become a monk, and had certainly given up hope in all woman of the species. But then as luck would have it I found someone that that was daft enough to like me as much as I liked her, and bada bing, bada boom, I found a girl to share my room. And have now ended up being with my girl for 10 years now.

Sarah has been a constant source of support for me through some good and not so good times. She is my rock. And without her, I strongly believe I would have ended up having a different path in life, a somewhat more self destructive one, and ended up in all sorts of bother. She made sure that didn’t happen. I have now become a more rounded individual, this is all down to me girl, basically she’s the raddest thing since sliced bread…And I just want to let you all know that.

I basically have no idea how many people read this blog, or whether this is a good / bad thing or maybe too personal a thing for a blog, I just don’t know…But since it’s my blog I’m just going to do what I like.

Heres me and my girl Sarah, babe you rock.


And heres some more


So if you are out there and don’t have one of these here girl things, I reckon you should give them a go, they are pretty cool



  1. Congratulations!

    PS: Don’t worry about being too personal, we get too much quality tech info from you to worry about it 🙂


  2. Thanks so much Daniel. Maybe i’ll just call the book, WPF for Sarah.

    Ha Ha, thats cheese. Gorgonzola, of the highest order

    Mmmm, I shall have to think of some other event to publicly announce.


    Nah this one is special.


  4. I’m in… keep posting these..

    I discovered just yesterday, in fact, the incredible article frenzy you and Josh seem to be having (to me, anyways) over at CodeProject. And then I thought, geeze does this guy have a life, or is he physically attached to his PC.

    Glad to see you have a life and enjoy sharing. Break free my friend.. Now, back to reading your articles! Nah, have BoiseCodeCamp in the morning… g’nite 🙂


  5. Thanks.

    I actually have a pretty good balance, I watch lots of films, and go out loads, and go to the gym, eat out a bit, and also write articles.

    Its all cool man.

    Ill try and have a few more articles up soon, one of which im very excited about


  6. I am up to my neck in WPF and ORM software and writing specs for a rather cool network configuration tool at this company called Aircom international.
