And I am gone, gone, gone for the Winter

Fraud Alert

Monday, December 20th, 2004

I just wanted to warn anyone who’s reading about a couple of very nasty e-mails I got today. One claims to be from a bank which I am not connected with. The other one claims to be from a survey site working for Apple computers. The wording of each one is different, but the gist […]

Oh, Cool

Monday, December 20th, 2004

Dr. Edward Felten has come up with a wicked cool app on his blog, Freedom To Tinker. It’s called TinyP2P, and it’s a proof-of-concept demonstration of a really small peer-to-peer application. A peer-to-peer application is one that allows two computers to (among other things) share files. There are varying degrees of sophistication to these critters, […]

The very crafty Suzy gave me my first Christmas present on Saturday: my own personal knitting shrine/meditation center! Is that not utterly cool?

(Puh-nit-er, not puke-nit-er.) It’s going to be tricky because in order to finish it, I’ll need to do some Intarsia in the round, which […]

Really subtle.

First Felting

Sunday, December 12th, 2004

So, the Xmas projects are underway… Here’s my first attempt at felting, which I think is turning out pretty well. I used Lily Chin design and the ever-popular Lamb’s Pride Worsted. In retrospect, this shot kind of makes me look like a terrorist, don’t you think? Ten minutes of agitation later, the felting was well […]
