"Why do you use the word stuff so much?" -Peter Gurney
I have started a company with several co-workers from my old job. It's Kinesis CEM, LLC, a Customer Experience Management (CEM) company. We currently are focusing on doing Mystery Shopping, Surveys and Customer Service Consulting, and I gotta tell you, the group that we have put together really kicks butt. I've been developing a system called the FocalPoint, which is a premier tool for pushing data to various levels of an orginization through a web interface. If anyone is interested in it, drop me a line and I can set up a demo for you.
I believe that we've got a signifcant leg up on our competitors in several ways, not the least of which is that we have a dedicated full time programmer (me) who has a unique mix of knowledge of the research industry and top notch techinical skills. Anyway, I wanted to replace the 'I'm currently looking for a job' stuff, since I'm not anymore. :)
My Resume - I am not currently engaged in a job search in Seattle any more, but I'm leaving my resume up anyway. If someone wants to offer me a bunch of cash to do some special projects, I'd be willing to listen to their proposal.
Code Samples - Code samples that show some of the software I've put together. Not realy anything here right now...
Sewing Stuff - I recently started sewing things, mostly for my lovely and wonderful wife Cindy.
Cloaks - I've sewn two cloaks for Cindy recently, one for Halloween (which is our wedding aniversary) and one for a christmass present. Photos to come (probably).
Kilt - Cindy purchased the material and pattern for a kilt which I then put
together. This is a page of the experience.
Game Stuff - I do a lot of gaming, ranging from computer games to board games to strategy games to roleplaying games. Some day I hope to open my own little game store so I can lose money hand over fist.
Dreamlands - A MUSH (Multi User Shared Halucination, a kind of text based virtual reality) based very loosly on some writings of HP Lovecraft.
Teamspeak - We're running a TeamSpeak2 server now. It's a system that allows people to have voice conversations on line, specifically for use during on-line gaming. We're using it when we play City of Heroes, a fun little game. If you have TeamSpeak2 installed, you can get to our server at darleyconsulting.com. All and sundry are welcome to use it.
Available Services - Services I'm willing to provide to folks out there in the community. All of these services would be free of charge. I will only host things that I feel are interesting and add to the world. I am most interested in hosting stuff that is in line with my hobbies or interstes. Please feel to mail me if there is someting that you need hosting for. Remeber, there is a limited amount of space/bandwidth available so I need to be pickey. Can't hurt to let me know what you need tho and I'll see what I can do.
MUSH (or MUD or whatever) Hosting - I have space on my server for another MUSH (or MUD or whatever)
Mailing List Hosting - I can add some more mailing lists for interesting things.
Web hosting - I have room on my server for web pages
Please free to mail me with any questions or suggestions.
