Hallowe’en Costume

Monday, October 31st, 2005

My latest sewing experiement (which proved, among other things, that my hemming needs a lot of work): OB-GYN Kenobi. Closeup of the badge: Thanks to my stepdad for the loaner speculum. You may feel a slight disturbance in the force . . .

Eleven slightly irritated people of mixed gender

Saturday, October 29th, 2005

So I got selected for the jury. I suspect it was because I was juror #3 as we walked in for selection, and I didn’t say or do anything that was disagreeable enough for either side to eliminate me. I was a little shocked when they called my name to go sit in the jury […]

Aw, Crap.

Today I was selected to sit on a jury. Whoopee. And for some bizarre reason, they don’t allow knitting needles in the courthouse. I am in hell.

Okay, I’m migrated – this blog is now being served up by WordPress. I’m very happy about this. Hopefully we’ll see a decline in the whole comment spam thing… I need to do a bunch of tweaking, but the (not very) heavy lifting is done.

Time to move on

Friday, October 21st, 2005

I believe it is time for me to move on. And by move on, I mean to stop using Movable Type and start using WordPress. I started using MT in January of 2003 and I was very happy with it. It was kind of difficult to install but it was easy to use and provided […]

After hunting down a bug in my code since Monday, I finally found the little bastard. I squish you! Squish, squish!!!! This is why I do what I do. I like solving puzzles. And although I don’t sell myself very well in person, I am really fucking good at it.

Wedding Pictures

So about that whole wedding thing… It was a lot of fun. It was great to see Kaetchen again in person. I discovered that I am known to some of her friends as “That Internet Guy” which amuses me to no end. It was really surprising how many of her friends and relatives weren’t aware […]

Actually, you *can* stop the signal

Fascinating concept from an old Schlock Mercenary strip. An energy shield is also a Faraday Cage. In combat involving energy weapons, how do you tell the difference between ordinance and information?

Let’s all bow our heads and pretend to be serious for a moment

Saturday, October 8th, 2005

I had expected my first thought upon waking up this morning to be “Where am I?” I am one of those people who doesn’t usually adjust all that well to travelling. I wake up in a hotel and for a split second wonder if something has gone terribly wrong. Then the recognition that I am […]

It’s ba-aaack

Tuesday, October 4th, 2005

Hey, it’s back! For the third time, the ferocious MA-2004 Attack Moth has graced the stucco walls of the breezeway outside my front door. I got several shots of the little guy this time. Right after the last one, its wings started vibrating. The vibrations got bigger and bigger until it lifted up kind of […]
