A Dog’s Life

Monday, March 28th, 2005

I can’t believe I don’t have a “dogs” category yet. The previous entry tells all about my adventures on Sunday. On Saturday, my mom and my sister took off early in the morning for Albuquerque, leaving me and Dan alone with two ferocious dogs. (Actually three ferocious dogs, but Sadie isn’t an inside dog, so […]

EHCT Report

Saturday, March 26th, 2005

I’d like to let everyone know how much my crotch hurts. It’s bad. Pain management specialists may be in order. This morning at 6:00 sharp my alarm went off, informing me that it was time to grab some coffee, munch down some breakfast, toss my luggage into my car and drive up to Kerrville for […]

And then something unexpected happened

Monday, March 21st, 2005

For the first time in a while, I dragged myself down to the Yarn Barn on Saturday morning and knit for almost an hour and a half straight. Woo-hoo, call me the marathon knitter. I finished the caper hat that I’m working on for a FOAF (friend of a friend) and chatted with the ladies […]

Ahhh… That’s better.

Sunday, March 20th, 2005

I feel better than I have in a while right now. I met one of the vps from work down at his local bike shop this morning at 10:00am. We rode our bikes over to Olmos Park, down McCullough to North St. Mary’s, and then down to south of town where we picked up the […]

On text fingerprinting

Friday, March 18th, 2005

I’m going to take a crack at actually writing the theoretical software I mentioned before. It turns out I have not come up with an original idea. People have been using file-comparison utilities for quite some time. There are dozens of sites on the web which offer anti-plagarism services and tools. Many of these sites […]

Random Ideas

Wednesday, March 16th, 2005

Forgive me from straying so far from knitting lately. I just haven’t been doing that much of it. I’m 90% done with a caper hat and about 3/5 done with Thomas’ Aran, but lately I just have not felt the need to get the needles in my hands. But I did have a random-ass cool […]

Best quote I read all day

Wednesday, March 16th, 2005

I just saw this as someone’s .sig on the website Groklaw: “My Doctor says I have A.D.D… He just doesn’t understand. It’s not like… Hey! Look at that chicken!”

Theory of Hell, revision 2

Monday, March 14th, 2005

I have updated my theory of hell. Although being trapped in dark waffle-lust is indeed terrible, I am currently experiencing and even higher level of discomfort. I went kayaking with friends this weekend (and had a GREAT time). Just before this, I engaged in my ritual yearly head-shaving. I didn’t use a razor this time, […]

I got an icon

Friday, March 11th, 2005

Not exactly sure why I suddenly felt the impulse to do this, but I finally got around to making myself a site icon. If your browser supports it, you’ll now see a cute little saxon braid icon the left of the address in your address bar. Cute, huh? I’ve been donating a little of my […]

I’m working on another caper hat right now for C.A.P.E.R. – the Caper Advancement, Promulgation and Enrichment Regime. C.A.P.E.R. has as its primary goal the creation and maintenance of a caper-friendly environment on earth and, by extension, all human-habitable environs. Persuant to this, members of C.A.P.E.R. periodically assemble caper acoutrements such as caper hats, utility […]
