  1. So far so good / Ouch

    So far the computer has been faring my vacation pretty well. I’ve been having fun here in Colorado. I went paintballing (see Part II of this post) the other day and had a great time. Perhaps the only downside thus far would be my vomit attack. I w…

  2. New content

    I’ve added some new content. In the meantime, I’m bolstering the computer for my vacation. I hope I don’t have a repeat of last year:

    08-27-2002 12:00 AM – Shot to hell!!! WHY?!?!?

    I leave for a month and a half and when I come back…

  3. E-mail? The French beg to differ

    From: http://msn.com.com/2100-1105_2-1027357.html?part=msn&subj=ns_1027357&tag=msn_home

    The latest Anglicism to fall out of favor in France is the word "e-mail," now banned from use by government employees.

    The word "e-mail" can now no …

  4. No more preg_replace

    I decided that I didn’t want a preg_replace feature. For all the benefits that it offered, it would be to hard to maintain the array of information it had to store. It would also consume quite a bit of processing power per a page request.

  5. Testing reg_replace

    I’ve added a new feature. It’s designed to help highlight keywords that have http links to other websites. Basically, large brand names and such. So far the list is very, very small. Just: Microsoft, IBM, PHP, ASP, mySQL, Star Trek, Lucent, SSI, H…

  6. General Housekeeping

    I did some general house keeping, helping the site reflect more of who I am. So I took some general stuff off, such as the "Guys Rules" article and the "Plane Sayings". I am also going to add some more content soon.

    I added a "Printer Friend…

  7. Bang

    This is the follow up to "When good sparklers go bad". As promised, I have put the video up!. Note: this is not the raw footage, this is edited footage. I’m going to invest in some sort of video editing suite now that I have my FireWire Card. So t…

  8. Operation: Red Hat – Day 7

    All is going well so far. I got all the updates. I’m having a hard time getting the whole network thing worked out. Samba is installed, and I finally figured out how to give the computer a name (I named it "Voyager"). I can even find it in my work…

  9. Robo-golf

    I’m taking a course at the UW on Robo-golf. It’s really pretty cool. It’s a shortened version of 463. We do everything they do, but in only two weeks. We also don’t use/develop any wireless protcals or use/develop any visual information.

  10. When sparklers go bad

    What do you get if you tape 100 sparklers together with duct tape? Well, that’s what Peter attempted today in my backyard. Following the "advice" of Sparkley Bombs, Peter, along with myself, Quinn, Darren, Andy, and Charlie, began assembling our d…
