Busy Daddy...

Busy Daddy...

Three weeks ago I became the father of a beautiful little girl!  Unfortunately, I don't have the energy to process and post photos, much less take new ones.  I am still around, checking my deviations an messages, but it is going to be awhile before I get around to posting anything.

Overworked...

Overworked...

It's summer, which means long days that are great for railfanning--and I'm too busy to enjoy any of it. My day job is the software architect and primary framework developer for a small startup company writing healthcare software.  We have a big project with a tightly packed schedule and it is eating up most of my spare time.  Indeed, I'm needing to work weekends to keep up. Anyway, it is safe to assume that my activity will be kept down to my usual commenting (which is a nice use of my short break time), but I will not be posting any pictures until my schedule loosens up a bit.  :)

I noticed that you watch me for quite a while, but never heard from you again.
My question is, why exactly do you watch me at all?
I haven't been very active on DeviantArt in awhile. Between a baby daughter and work I just haven't had the time to keep up on here at all. Today is the first time I've signed on in over a month. :)

Anyway, I do watch you for two reasons: because I'm interested in the railroad photos you take, and because I was part of the railfan community on DeviantArt.

Yeah, sorry about that comment. I had a sucky month.
