  1. Easter weekend 2007 in review, or, "I can't believe we made that much ham!"

    09 April 2007

    Easter weekend is always a busy one. Either we're getting ready to head back to Pennsylvania to spend the day with one or both families, cleaning, cooking, or getting ready to have people over for dinner. As it turned out, we accomplished most of the tasks on that list, as well as a couple that weren't, all in preparation for Grant and his girlfriend to come over on Sunday afternoon for dinner.

    The task began on Friday night with a couple of loads of laundry and cleaning up around the apartment, followed by driving over most of creation on Saturday …

  2. Lifestyle snapshot.

    15 March 2007

    Looking over my entries for the past couple of days, I haven't been writing nearly as well as I would have liked, nor about the things that I've been concerned about the most lately. Frankly, I've just been trying to get through the day in one piece, with enough energy left over after I get home to throw a couple of loads of laundry in and relax a bit. You could say that I've had a lot on my mind this week. It's 0831 EST5EDT as I write this; twenty-five hours and counting until I go under the drill at …

  3. Nevermind, I figured out what it was.

    08 March 2007

    I had originally titled a post about last weekend "''I'm tryin' ta think, but nuttin' happens!'' --Curly, The Three Stooges", but a bit of poking around inside the index file generated by my weblogging application revealed that putting a pair of dashes into the title of a post does something that HTML4 doesn't expect - it thinks that they either start or end a comment in a block of HTML. Carefully looking at the frontpage, I could see where the string of posts was broken because there was a post, then part of a post without the headers, then another part …

  4. Bloggers and web board admins are not legally responsible for content posted by their readers or users.

    27 February 2007

    The First Circuit Court of the USA has upheld an important dictate of the Communications Decency Act, which sets a helpful precedent for bloggers and people who run web BBSes. Section 230 of the CDA states that the administrators of public forums which allow people to post are not, in fact, responsible for what their readers or users post. The court case this comes from is Universal Communication Systems v. Lycos, in which people unknown were talking smack on UCS' stock prices. UCS decided to sue Lycos for running the board and not the users of the board (which they …

  5. So, it's been a rough and tumble weekend, to be sure....

    04 February 2007

    I'm going to write more in here than in my old memory logs to ease the transition between formats. I figure that I'll cut over to this system on Monday as the grand opening, because last night I uploaded the last images from my photo album and turned them into galleries using a utility from the Gentoo portage collection called mkgallery. At some point I'll get around to turning the commentary from the old index.html files into comments for the galleries. For now, this will suffice.

    Anyway, where was I....? On Friday night, Lyssa and I stuck as close …

  6. The Doctor's weblog drinking game.

    17 January 2007

    Take one drink...


    • whenever I bitch about work.

    • whenever I mention hating my lives, being depressed, or hating my family.

    • for every piece of electronic equipment I mention having on my person (batman factor).

    • for every time I'm logged onto ICQ--but aren't actually there.

    • every time I crow about finding a new toy.

    • every time I mention another possible apartment or new job.

    • every time I worry about being too selfish or weird.

    • everytime I slap myself in the head.

    • when I mention purring--for as long as I purr.

    • when I get to have something with cinnamon in it.

    • if …
