Were you aware of it?

I’ve been using Apple’s Pages program quite a bit lately, namely for proposals and reports. In preparing a table of milestones with hour and cost estimates, I happened upon a great new feature: formulas in tables.
I guess this was a publicized feature of Pages 2, but it’s news to me. I was able to [...]

Honeymoon? Oh yeah…

Starting to get the honeymoon photos up, beginning with Athens. My goal is to finish it by 2007. Each stage of the trip required significant paring down to the (hopefully) interesting photos.

You know you’re a Web 2.0 geek when…

… you totally nailed the first Buchanan submission to a Flickr pool about U.S. Presidents.

Akismet is teh r0×0r

I’ve seen a steep increase in comment spam in the past couple weeks — from basically none to ten or more a day. Across three blogs, this gets pretty annoying, even if they don’t make it through the filter — I still have to delete them and I get emailed about them as they’re submitted. [...]

My first attempt is here — [...]

Great headlines

Two very exciting headlines this morning:
Democrats recapture US House of Representatives
and
Democrats Take Majority of Governorships
Now, let’s just get the results of Virginia and Montana…

Athenian BORF

Just wanted to make sure that this didn’t slip off the radar… saw an homage to BORF in Athens that I was able to capture. I hope to soon annotate those other moblogs that I took with details as to where and when they were.

Minor update

So, in a nutshell:
* We’re married. Best day of my life. Photos soon.
* Greece & Turkey rocked. I flew back a week before this. Major buzzkill to go from Mediterranean cuisine to eating at a Subway in New Jersey on the drive home — wish I could have come down a little easier.
* Still [...]
