He’s baaaack!

Tuesday, May 28th, 2002

My apologies for not showing my head last night, when I got back home: the combined effects of a three-hour unload and wash everything in the pouring drizzle and the return to the gloomy green hell of the Oregon Coast (whose idea was it to cover every inch of ground with brush?) left me in […]

Outta here

Sunday, May 19th, 2002

I’m off to play in the woods for a week or so. Chances are you won’t notice anything very different from a posting standpoint, but comments probably won’t be answered very quickly.

Bloglet users: my apologies

Friday, May 17th, 2002

It’s great to have so many brilliant friends, but it would be a bit better if you were a little less patient. Monsur finally broke down and emailed me to remind me that I hadn’t told Bloglet about my change in blogging tool. Poor Bloglet (and, seriously, poor 14 people who have subscribed to my […]

Why I still support Blogger

In a word: hackability. The extra features (available now!), […]

Finally, finally getting broadband at work: good. Having to spend the whole afternoon down in the crawlspace pulling cat-5: bad. My poor tired body: old.

In search of a new topic

Tuesday, May 7th, 2002

I have to agree with Jim: i don’t know that weblog software is all that exciting to talk about. it’s like the “hello world” of web applications. But, um, er, that’s all I’ve been talking about for the better part of a year now. So, what next?

Post-switch depression

Sunday, May 5th, 2002

Damnedest thing. After several hours of importing entries from Blogger and comments from dotcomments, mucking around with mod_rewrite to make sure that permalinks would still work, and faked-up directories that used to lead to index.php? would now go to category archives, I now have no interest in playing with my new toy. I don’t feel […]

Dislocation, breakage, light posting

Sunday, May 5th, 2002

If I made the standard post about how I’m working on the backend, and you should expect some dislocation and breakage, and especially infrequent posting, would that be as funny as I think it is?

Hello world

Thursday, May 2nd, 2002

Lord willing and the creeks don’t rise, this ought to ping as well as, thereby pissing off anyone who comes here looking for content despite the “ping test” in the title.
