Express Yourself

“…by the dawn’s early light..” Ok, ok, so it was actually well after dawn (and I’m a known morning person, so I was at my normal full-speed) but I’m reliably informed that 8am is practically the middle of the night for Californians!  Nonetheless, there were a surprising number of brave souls who showed up for […]

Richard has been talking about how long it’s been since he’s posted. I have to say, it’s been forever since I’ve posted a blog and I’ll need to work on that in 2019. Yes, I’m still alive and kicking and so much has happened since I’ve posted. More on that in another post. The PCIe […]

No, no, “it” does NOT refer to “get Richard back on the blog after some 4 months of silence” – although I think Scott was starting to think that and was probably considering threats of bodily harm! I know there was a LOT of (very well justified, I have to confess) skepticism when the PCI-SIG […]

I’m afraid that I’m showing my age again with this title, and in truth time has shown that video did *NOT* kill off radio/audio-only media.  In much the same way, I believe that nothing takes the place of an in-person presentation.  Even when an audience is not asking questions, I find that there’s a connection […]

Whew, what a week! That’s another PCI-SIG Developers Conference in the books though. I was just in sunny Santa Clara (California of course) discussing all things PCI Express® technology with more than 560 PCI-SIG® members from around the world. Our members come together to learn from the PCIe® experts leading the spec development work as […]

You’re probably thinking “Wait a minute Richard, it’s not May anymore!” which is why I titled this “May 32nd…” What, you’re not buying off on me adjusting the calendar? Darn.  I guess I just have to admit to being late with my promised follow-up from May’s PCI-SIG European Developers Conference.  Sigh. The good news is […]

PCI-SIG Board Election Time that is – please vote before Tuesday at noon Pacific! Many of you know me well enough to realize I hate this part of the PCI-SIG Board “job” but if I don’t wear this hat around, I won’t have the PCI-SIG “hat” to wear representing you.  So I’m once again out drumming […]

Well things are about to get busier – though given I got off a plane Thursday night from the PCI-SIG Compliance Workshop #105 and got on another one less than 12 hours later to go to a family wedding…  Perhaps my definition of “busy” is a bit suspect! In any case, there’s a full slate […]

I wanted to title this “Upstream, downstream, in my lady’s chamber” in honor of the old nursery rhyme “Goosey, goosey, gander” – but after reading what Wikipedia has to say about the nursery rhyme it didn’t seem quite as childlike as I remembered…  I also thought that putting “in my lady’s chamber” in a blog title […]

Happy New Year!  Well, at least for those of you who celebrate the Lunar New Year (which was often called “Chinese New Year” back before I was old enough to drive).  If you don’t normally celebrate now, then take the rest of the day off and tell your boss I told you to*. This may end […]
