    • Looks like I’m just the fifth supporter of The Good News Podcast on Patreon — getting in early before the rush! I’ve been enjoying this podcast since it started, so I’m happy to toss them a few bucks a month to keep it going.

  • 2007
    • Thomas Jefferson’s Koran Rep.-elect Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, found himself under attack last month when he announced he'd take his oath of office on the Koran -- especially from Virginia Rep. Virgil Goode, who called it a threat to American values.
  • 2006
    • First Day of School Well, okay, so there wasn't any big yellow school bus for me today. And no, there wasn't a _short_ bus either, smartasses. Still and all, it _was_ my first day in school in fifteen years, so I figured I had to mark the occasion in some form.
  • 2005
    • Wishlist: MT ‘tag’ category plugin What I want now is a way to use tags in my Movable Type installation rather than categories. Barring some kind soul figuring out how to shoehorn such a thing into MT, though, do any of the current weblogging tools support tag-based categorization?
    • Moose or Mouse? Moose causes auto accident by climbing inside the driver's pants. Or not.

    • A tweak here, a tweak there Further changes (including some of the ideas that have been tossed at me in the comments to my last post) will appear as I get around to them. In other words, it could be tomorrow, and it could be sometime in 2007. Around here, you just never know.
    • Everything old is new again I've finally managed to finish up what's been something of an ongoing 'whenever I'm bored' project for the past few months — re-entering all my old posts (two years worth, approximately 700 or so?) that disappeared when my old webserver died in August.
    • tlhIngan Hol Did you know that you could Google in Klingon? Completely bizarre. But cool.
    • Wireless in the classroom In response to this article about the pros and cons of wireless 'net access on campus, Robert Scoble presents a list of suggests as to how teachers can adapt. Rather than panicking and denying all 'net access across the board, why not come up with ways to involve use of the 'net in class?
