The Pool is Up!

Last night we tried out the pool for the first time. A little cold because it just finished filling yesterday and the boiler didn’t have any time to heat up the water yet, but it felt good after a one hundred degree day in the sun. Hopefully on Saturday we will have a little pool […]

Jason flashes new look

During my morning website perusing, I noticed that Jason updated the look of his website. Awesome. I like it.

Unbelievable Bug Removal

I think this has to be the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen: Bug Removal Thanks Kristy for wrecking my apetite.

Pool liner is in!

Now the water filling begins. Two hoses on two different spigots have been running for about 3 hours now and there is maybe 4 feet in the deep end. Looks like I’ll be waking up in the middle of the night to turn it off at the correct level. Tomorrow they put in the steps […]

Opera VS Firefox: browser review

I tried Opera 9 today for Linux. I thought to myself, “Wow, maybe I found a Firefox replacement that fixes the areas of Firefox I don’t like” So I installed it. Props to Opera for even making a version that works with Ubuntu Dapper Drake. The install was painless, and it put an icon in […]

Pool goes in this week!

Hopefully by the end of the week our new pool liner will be installed. That will be nice to have out of the way. Spent most of the afternoon cleaning up the back yard and trimming/removing overgrown trees. It is starting to shape up rather nicely but there is still a lot of work ahead […]

The Xmod documentation lists that there are multiple ones available for free but there is only one as the other […]

Daily Links Section

You may have noticed on the bottom of the left column of this page, there is a section titled "Daily Links". This shows all of the links I bookmark throughout the day that I find interesting. You may also notice that I update that section a lot more than my blog. It just happens that […]

WordPress so far

I really like WordPress so far. It has a lot more options than Blogger. The one thing I do miss though is the ability to post to my blog via email. I will have to look into this and see what I can come up with or maybe my blackberry can handle the website interface […]

Summer classes suck

I can't believe what a mistake taking 3 online classes in the summer is. I don't have time for anything. The only class I kinda like is the networking one, because I don't have to think about it too much. The writing one started off as fun because I kinda like to write but 3 […]
