    • Cold snap update: officially -7°, but reading -13° at our house. 😳 Just…no. Ugh.
  • 2016
    • The diploma is here! It was official before, but it feels official now. #CWUpride (13/366)
  • 2015
    • This year’s crop of Philip K. Dick nominees are here! Guessing I’ll be too busy with schoolwork to have them read by @norwescon #nwc38, but I’ll see how many I can get through!
  • 2014
    • Chatting about our days while Prairie makes cornbread to go with our chili dinner. She says that this is my “Yes, dear, I’m listening” face.
  • 2008
    • Sci-Fi Sounds This was an entertaining little quiz -- identifying classic sci-fi from short sound clips. Most were pretty obvious to me, but not all of 'em.
  • 2007
    • This isn’t right… Admittedly, things are looking up when you glance through the forecast through the next week. Still, there's just something _wrong_ about Seattle and Anchorage both getting snow...and Seattle being _colder_ than Anchorage.
  • 2006
    • iPhoto 6.0: Flickr Photocasts 'What would happen,' I wondered, 'if you tried to subscribe to a Flickr RSS feed as if it were a Photocast?'
    • iLife ’06: First Impressions My iLife '06 package showed up today. I can't stay up incredibly late to play, so this is just going to be a cursory overview to begin with, but it's a start.
  • 2005
    • Maikeru This is what the name 'Michael' looks like in Japanese. It is pronounced 'MAIKERU'.
  • 2004
    • Kodak cameras no more How very interesting — Kodak, a company who's name has been synonymous with photography my entire life, will stop selling traditional film cameras in America and Western Europe.
    • IMDB top 250 The Internet Movie Database top 250 films, as voted by IMDB members. Movies I've seen are in bold — exactly half, as it turns out.
    • ‘cuddling’ I've been reading Something Positive for a while now, since Royce showed it to me, but yesterday's strip has two of the best quotes I've seen from it yet.
    • Electronic Grassroots Much has been made over the past few months of how political campaigns are more and more turning to electronic means of communication and organization to connect and interact with voters, usually pointing to the Howard Dean campaign as the leader and trendsetter for this new approach to politicking. But how did Dean's online juggernaut get kicked into high gear?
    • Changing my habits So, starting tonight, I'm going to try to vary my reading habits a bit to see what that does. I've deleted all the groups I was using before, and instead have all the feeds listed in more-or-less alphabetical order, top to bottom in a single group, ordered by date posted.
    • Army War College blasts ‘War on Terror’ A scathing new report published by the Army War College broadly criticizes the Bush administration's handling of the war on terrorism, accusing it of taking a detour into an 'unnecessary' war in Iraq and pursuing an 'unrealistic' quest against terrorism that may lead to U.S. wars with states that pose no serious threat.
    • Hey! Remember, we pay the salaries of the teachers and staff. We buy the computers. We pay for the buildings in which they are used. As long as public school is public, the Beverly Sweeneys of the world need to know that it is our right and duty to look over their shoulders and question what they do.
    • Kevin and Emily, sitting in a tree… Of course, given that the wedding was announced after the baby was announced, and the ceremony is going to be in Tennessee…well, one has to wonder whether I'll come back with wedding pictures featuring a shotgun-wielding father in the background…;)
  • 2003
    • Happy Places My Happy Place was an animated movie. Script by William S. Burroughs. Score by trent reznor. Animation and art direction by H. R. Giger. Directed by Terry Gilliam and/or David Fincher and/or Darren Aronofsky and/or David Cronenberg (either joinly, or each taking a different section of the film, or possibly a series of films…whatever).
    • BlogFodder Here's an interesting idea — BlogFodder, a daily e-mail with a short snippet of text intended to (hopefully) inspire musings, thoughts, and possibly future weblog posts.
    • Ten-minute Two Towers GOLLUM: Mordor? Hobbitses having little Goth phase, maybe? Very angsssty, wanting to go to Mordor, yes yes. Can Smeagol offer black eyeliner to angsssty hobbitses?
    • Installing MT on OS X While searching around for pointers on getting MovableType moved over to a MySQL backend rather than the DBD backend I'm currently using, I ran across a few good general resources for OS X MovableType installations.
  • 2002
    • AARRGGHH!! I had some problems with my webserver earlier this weekend, which necessitated having to reinstall the system. When I copied the essential files for my website off the box, I forgot one crucial little directory -- and managed to completely bork up my blog software. Dammit.
  • 2001
    • Mom?!?! Just picked up one new DVD to add to the collection today -- George Lucas in Love. If you've never seen the film, it's well worth it...it's a 9-minute long short film exploring the truth behind the story of Star Wars.
    • Bowling Got picked up by my friend Airy, and we went out to La Mex for dinner and then headed out to Jewel Lake Bowl to meet Bill and Rich for midnight Neon Bowling. I got a 148 my first game, and went steadily downhill from there.
    • Up and running Okay, I just got things up and running again. As of right now, everything on my site should be working correctly -- now off to bed, I've got to get some sleep tonight!
