Well, I took the plunge and finally upgraded updated my laptop to Windows XP Service Pack 2. Had a good laugh at the “…we strongly recommend that you back up your system…” message first, though. The whole process took nearly four (4!) hours to complete, but all in all nothing really went wrong. One extremely […]
I’ve joined the Google craze. Many of you have probably already heard of Gmail, Google’s Webmail service that’s not yet open to the public. I was lucky enough to get invited to get an account and I have to say, it is leaps and bounds above the competition. The 1,000 megabyte storage capacity is just […]
I found a ten dollar bill on the street just now! No, really, was walking home from Saint’s Alp Teahouse and on the street, in the middle of an intersection, was a folded, crisp ten dollar bill.

A new Chicago Cutlery chef’s knife. The milestone of having my first work-for-hire web site publicly launched. Visiting Burlington, Vermont […]
Just took my first look at Ben Hunt’s Web Design from Scratch tutorial articles. Just wondering, but am I coder trying to be a designer or a designer trying to be a coder? Um. Help.
This morning was horrible. It reminded me exactly why I’ve been using a Mac as my primary computing platform for years. I woke up after a bad dream and after grabbing a drink, I turned on my Windows laptop to check my mail. As I was downloading my new messages I tried to scroll my […]
While showing my mother what to use SharpReader for, I decided to illustrate the concept by writing this blog entry to create a real-time example of the uses of RSS. Hopefully, this will be a successfull experiment. Update: Well, it turns out Mom’s not using SharpReader at all, really, and she hasn’t subscribed to any […]
