Just wanted to let you know that I'm here in Iraq and beginning my mission. I may provide more details about where I am and what I'm doing here in the future. It looks like I won't have as much time as I thought, but I still plan to get some work done on Tera-WURFL while I'm here!
I’m heading back to the desert for another deployment with the Army National Guard
I’ve been in the Army National Guard since 2003 and have been lucky enough to serve only one tour in Iraq (2005). In 2008 I moved from Michigan to Texas and in doing so I was forced to switch Army units. The unit that grabbed me up was already deployed and I was happily holding down the fort in the rear detachment. Unfortunately, a quick 3 months later I was scooped up by a different unit 300 miles away for a deployment. I am now in the final stages of my preparation for this deployment and am scrambling to wrap up all my stuff before I leave. Hopefully I will have a lot of time to work on Tera-WURFL when I’m gone; I plan to further abstract the database layer and introduce a MSSQL Database Connector in the coming months. I will let you know once I’m in the sandbox!
