Shift

For the curious, I’m not blogging much over here anymore. I am however, syndicating a lot of my active content (links, photos, etc.) over here on Tumblr. I like it so far. It also pulls in Code Sorcery Workshop which, by the way, is keeping me quite happy and busy.
And, if you thought I [...]

Transition

The classic blog death rattle — a redesign
Actually, I’m not looking to perk up this blog any, but probably to change its purpose in the near future. Also, I just nabbed an unmodified theme and will likely change it again shortly. Coincidence that when I finally moved on this, my Akismet spam count was [...]

Pet health update

I realized that I should give an update on Macy’s health after my last post. Also, amazingly, my original post about cat seizures continues to garner comments well over a year later. Now up to fifteen comments, people from all over are apparently also seeing seizures and finding this blog. So, I hope to be [...]

Cats, cars, and ice make for an eventful night

Will write more later, but for now, last night:
1) Macy has multiple (like, five) seizures.
2) Car needs to be busted out of its ice encasement since I haven’t driven it in over two weeks. Used hammer, pieces of old desk, and kitty litter.
3) There is slight flooding in our basement storage unit from melting [...]

Travel and FIOS

I’m in NYC for most of this week around an Apple mini-conference tomorrow. In the meantime, I seem to be stuck with FIOS while working:

Bummer

Well, hello there, 2007

So it’s 2007. Things are good. I’ve been keeping quite busy and today is my two-month milestone as a freelancer. On that front, I’ve been working with some great clients and February is starting to fall into place. I’m also continuing in a serious way with the Mac software, though it is hard to demonstrate [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]

It’s never easy

So I took my car back to the collision place for a few niggling issues — the trunk latch was flaky, the steering wheel was rotated slightly, and the brake light was out. I just called to get an ETA (after a whole day) and it turns out when they checked it out, they found [...]

A long summer

Well, I just got my car back after close to three weeks of the rental car (which wasn’t bad, in retrospect). I’ve never put 1500 miles on a rental car before, though. The only problems with my car now are that the trunk doesn’t always latch on the first try and the steering wheel is [...]
