Quiet Lately

For all two of you who read this blog, I’ve not been writing much lately due to several family visits in the last six weeks, a newly minted Masters degree (and all the celebrations that go along with that) in the house and just a general lack of stuff to write about. I’ve got several […]


A couple quotes from Fred Gratzon, the king of laziness. Someday these quotes will apply to me … I absolutely refuse to work—have not, will not work. It’s a waste of time. It’s a waste of life. It’s just a waste on every level, and it’s the wrong way to be successful. One does not […]

Home Renovations

The good thing about owning your own home is that you can do any renovations you want. The bad thing about owning your own home is that you can do any renovations you want. Tomorrow I go to work to get some rest. 🙂

More Comment Spam

I’ve been hit with quite a bit of comment spam over the last few days, so I thought it was time to deal with it. I didn’t want to shutoff comments completely. I don’t want to stifle the plethora of thought expression being expounded by all three of my loyal readers. So as a first […]

The Big Switcheroo

Time for a second computer in the house and I don’t mean another old PII linux box for me to hack on.

It only took a couple minutes to get these plugins working and not only do you get the plugin output on the public pages, but they […]

Is anyone out there?

Since the beginning of time (for this blog anyway) comments have been turned off. When I originally installed WordPress, it took all of 30 seconds to get comment spam. Now as much as I want ads for online poker all over my blog, I decided to turn comments off so I could buy illegal software […]

New Server, New vhost

As you may have noticed this blog is now at No reason really to do this, other than it feels cleaner and I was in the process of setting up a new server anyway (more on that later), so I thought I would make the switch. Hopefully there will be no problems.

WordPress 1.5 Upgrade

You may notice that my blog is looking a little different. I decided to upgrade to WordPress 1.5. The upgrade was simple and so far everything seems to be working fine. I’ll be working on a new look and feel for, so I thought I would leave the default WordPress 1.5 theme as is […]
