Sorscha Valkyrie

Friday, October 24th, 2008

The latest member of our family made her gooey entrance around noon today. She cleans up well, however. Balthazar is so happy to be a big brother, and Sorscha’s mother and I are, of course, completely in love with the new girl. She’s such a beautiful, healthy girl; I couldn’t ask for […]

“Seaside” On Sale Now

Monday, October 13th, 2008

Well, Seaside didn’t win the Threadless contest, but it won the hearts of some. I really thought I was in it with the good comments, but alas, it scored slightly lower than my previous entry. That’s okay; Threadless losers beccome Zazzle winners! Hop on over to my Zazzle store to buy this […]

Zune 3.0 Coming

Friday, September 12th, 2008

Mmmm…Zune 3.0. I’ve just read Jason Dunn’s (of ThoughtMedia.com) report on a recent Microsoft meeting discussing the Zune 3.0 release. I am completely sold on the Zune platform and am greatly encouraged by the up-and-coming release. Perhaps the greatest boon of them all is that the Zune team will be including us […]

The First Day at School

Friday, August 8th, 2008

Yesterday was Balthazar’s first day of school. It started early that morning and the whole family was up for the affair. We drove him in and walked him to his class. It’s one of those “big steps” in a child’s life. I am excited about the idea of him becoming independent […]

Tastey Nuts

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

I’m a fan of the seed and nut family, as many can attest. I maintain a supply of them at my desk at work for the occasion of snacking, which comes regularly. There are also infinite jokes to be told that never get old:
Hello everybody. I have brought my nuts for everybody […]

The Home School Phenomenon

Monday, March 17th, 2008

Man has been on a quest throughout time to find the riddle of the root of all evil. Ole-Magnus Saxegard, a student of the Sydney-based University of Technology, explores this riddle in his latest frame-by-frame Flash animation (A History of Evil). It is a brilliant vision. If he’s looking for further inspiration to this age-old […]

The Lone Ranger

Monday, October 29th, 2007

We have now officially fallen to a distant 2nd for Balthazar’s adoration. My mother gave him the gift of a lifetime – somewhat inadvertently – yesterday. She had been at a dog party where the requirement was to dress up your animals for Halloween. Among hers, she had some cowboy and villain […]

Internet, Spread your Wings and Fly

Thursday, October 18th, 2007

I used to be one of those elitist programmers that sought out the most obscure uses of the DOM or unknown HTML tags. Hell, I used to only use VBScript, and throw out angry comparisons of my pure VBScript solution to a JavaScript one.

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

This image is one I took of the lovely Duct Tape Pirate ladies at Dragon*Con 2007 Masquerade contest. As I grabbed this image, I noticed even Flickr was getting in on the fun!
