JIMM 85 - Super THRILL Mix

Memorial Day is just around the corner, and we're getting ready for a vacation to Fort Worth, Texas. I created this Super Thrill Mix of independent music for the occasion. Head on over to the shownotes page for the "warm, juicy goodness". Feel free to burn to a CD so you can enjoy it, too. Please support the artists who make their music available to be shared on shows like this one.

Programming for Good to Reduce Necessary Evil

A few weeks ago I mentioned a project I'm working on to streamline the benefits auditing reports. This process involves verifying premium payments for health insurance with what is taken out of employees' paychecks. As I mentioned in the previous post (via the Twitter photo, no doubt), the application I'm working on will save 2-3 weeks' worth of work and many trees' lives.

I just met with the HR department to discuss the status, and the HR Specialist who does this work mentioned that the current process wastes a lot of time. But needed by the business, I said.

"It's a necessary evil," the HR Manager replied.

"Well, hopefully we can make it for something good," I said.

Programming for Good to Reduce Necessary Evil. That's what I'm about.
