Vanishing Posts

At least one post 12 October 2008 wasn’t in the new blog. I’ve been monitoring it carefully and when I see an inbound link that goes nowhere I can fix it. All of them have been adjustments to path names. I’ve only got two difficult posts. One I solved after realizing it couldn’t resolve because […]

Food. Tasty, tasty food

I ate at a new Italian restaurant near my house called Il Forno. Fancy place, terrible, terrible location so I don’t hold out much hope they’ll survive for very long. Which is too bad because it’s pretty decent as far as the food goes. The bread is very similar to a pita and served with olive oil. […]

Face Plant

Randomness Part Huit

Seti@Home: My 15 seconds of fame (or 24 hours)

Today, 19 January 2006, I was named Seti@Home’s user of the day. I have no idea how or why I was selected but I am thrilled because I’ve always been a huge supporter of Seti@Home. If you go to the link below today and today only, you can see my ugly mugshot on the front […]
