Closing Time (or “So long, Elliot Jaques”)

Forrest ChristianAdmin 5 Comments

It’s closing time. After spending almost all of the last thirty years of my worklife as a consultant, I finally walked away. As of last week, I have returned to the risk career I left a long time ago. I joined a large financial company’s technology risk management oversight group where I’m an internal consultant.

Moore, Oklahoma and My Family

Forrest ChristianAdmin 2 Comments

Yesterday, a massive tornado hit the Oklahoma City area, concentrated on Moore, OK. This just one day after a tornado ripped through Edmond and other cities. We think about these things because my wife is from OKC, and she had family in Moore and Edmond. Today, we’re just thankful that everyone is safe. Her brother-in-law was able to clean off …

No more HHPs!

From now on, I’m not going to work with HHPs! I’m only going to work with 2HiPo’s. HHPs always sounded like a bad computer company. “Two high poe” conveys more about who you people are.

Moving to a new design

Forrest ChristianAdmin, Change 1 Comment

I’ve been sick and tired of my website for years now, and with the change in how I do business, I’m moving off this look into a new one. Expect a pretty simplistic look on the website for about a week as I introduce the new layout for the site and the new business model. Also, have you taken a …
