I've decided to open up the weblog archive. At one point is was closed off except to registered members due to an incident, However, that company has since closed its doors so they can just eat it. Use the search to find something that youmight be looking for. Maybe you'll find it.

So much to do so little time. I'll add to this in the afternoon.
FYI: Photoshop 7 BETA installs just fine on OS 9.1 - punk! You're all set for school now, Amy. It's gonna be a long time till this G4 sees OS X I do believe.

Work is slower than in weeks past - which isn't a bad thing. e-Squared should hopefully finish this automated billing project for All For Doggies in a couple of weeks at most. It NEEDS to get done
And today is Amy's birthday! She turns 22 today. We don't have any big plans today because of school and work. We'll be doing something on Sunday as the 13th is our 2 year anniversary.
In other news : tastypopsicle.com will be getting a new host provider. I decided to use Readyhosting since they're $99 for a whole year as opposed to the $25 I'm spending a month. I can't say for sure how smooth this is going to go but I'm willing to give it my best shot. I don't think it'll be too bad since I only have a personal site that 4 people visit a day... I'll have to transfer my mp3s that are on electric ice and put them on the iMac I think - not that it really matters too much.
Gotta figure out what's going on with PrimeCo - my account STILL isn't canceled. Damn AT&T man - liar!

VERY tired today as I was Amy's model for her photo shoot. I also took some pictures of her too. Although I was grumpy for the first two hours I warmed up to the whole thing once I woke up some more. Next time I will need coffee. 9am we had to be at the studio. I haven't had to do that in a LONG time... early to bed tonight hopefully.
Demo for the Adventist MD site needs to be mocked up for Tuesday. That'll get me a lot more hours by then
mmmmm work = money

It's been 2 years for me and Amy - 2 years ago today we met on the brown line train. Me on the way to the library and Amy on her way to work. Tonight is going to be a special night for us hopefully. We have reservations at the John Hancock Signature Room (the place on the 95th floor) and then we'll go up to the 96th floor lounge for some cocktails while we reminise.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Time to get some more work done while Amy does some homework.

Appetizer: Smoked Washington Salmon | chive blini and hackleback caviar; crème fraîche
Amy's dinner: Red snapper | lobster and fennel ravioli with spinach; citrus leek beurre blanc
My dinner: Roasted Rack of Lamb | tomato, onion, cucumber and feta cheese; roasted garlic yogurt sauce
Dessert: a mango and vanilla mousse covered in a chocolate shell (they wrote Happy 2nd Anniversary on the plate and put a candle in it for us!)
We each had a drink before dinner on the 96th floor lounge. Had a bottle of Penot Noir with dinner and we shared a Sky High martini after dinner with dessert.
My Alma Mater was mentioned on TechLIVE this evening. The Department of Defense is giving a nearly $36 million grant to Carnegie Mellon University's new Center for Computer and Communications Security, hoping that the grant will buy some better ways to protect sensitive networks. One technology in development would use face photos and fingerprints instead of passwords. Another technology uses artificially intelligent hard drives that know when to say no to intruders. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has a good story on it.
BMX XXX, with all its controversy, is going to be a HUGE game I bet. While I don't have any game system, and this game certainly isn't going to make me want to rush out and get one, a lot of "kids" are gonna get it.
November 8th is 8 Mile. Amy and I are VERY excited about seeing this movie. Let me know if you're interested in seeing it with us.
The car hunting has progressed. I went to a couple of dealers yesterday and we definitely know that we want to get a VW Beetle GLS. And we really like the Platinum Grey color. We'd also love to have the sunroof and the heated seats. We're both excited that we'll be able to have a new, better running car than the 87 Escort.
Hello to my friends Malia and Josh in Hawaii! It's great to hear from you guys after so many years.
I caught a great documentary that was on the Sundance Channel this afternoon. Titled "Revolution OS" it spoke with the key people in GNU open source and the Linux OS. If you're a techno-dork like myself then you'll find it highly interesting.
1) it's a rear-mounted disc changer
2) it'd be cheaper to get an Apple iPod and turn all of our CDs into MP3s and keep that in the car
It's a great car and I love driving it. I'm definitely excited about driving this thing back and forth to work every day. If you want to see it come on over - we're keeping it locked in the indoor garage though.
Went to Amy's dad's house last night afterward and hung out there til 10:30p or so. Today, Amy helped out her mom and sister with the car by taking them out to the grocery store while I did some laundry and cleaned the bathroom.
Now, I'm watching game 7 of the World Series and Anaheim is looking like it might pull this off at the bottom of the 7th.

Busy, busy with All For Doggies. We have a lot of stuff that we're planning to do in the next few months. I just hope we have the time and energy to do it
The new car is great - I even washed it yesterday afternoon and wiped down the inside sine they had done a crappy job of doing it; Anaheim won the other night - it was a good game.
Back to work!
Ps. And in what I'm calling "Idiot News of the Day": Starving Zambians won't eat engineered corn. Ethics are ethics - I give you that - but, what the f---!? If your people are starving GIVE THEM FOOD!! Idiots...
