Mac Humor Break

Back last year, I got my first Mac. I’ve been using it for the better part of a year now and am pretty happy with it overall. I’m using Microsoft Entourage for my email/calendar software instead Apple’s mail and calendar software, since I need to interact with not one, not two, but three separate Exchange […]

Upon this Rock (or how I learned that sometimes, first impressions are correct)

[Editor's warning: the following is tale of suspense and horror...of mid-80s Christian rock music and youthful prejudice. You have been warned.] Once upon a time, when I was a young and impressionable lad, my sister discovered a really good contemporary Christian rock band by the name of Petra. This was back in the day when […]

Not dead!

Wow. Has it really been a whole month since I’ve blogged here? I’m not dead, although I’ve just gotten over a brush with this nasty flu that’s going around. Between holiday vacation, moving permanently into my home office, and getting ramped up on some new projects (including cramming for my Windows Server 2003 MCSE), I’ve […]

Suckiest weekend ever

Last week, we’d been making a big push to finish getting the house cleaned up (my server area and office — two separate areas at opposite ends of the house, for those who haven’t been here) before Friday evening because Treanna was supposed to have an after-school playdate with her best friend. We’d take best […]

It’s funny because it’s true; it hurts because it’s true

Thanks to net.friend larabeaton (from back in my rec.arts.sf.written.robert-jordan days, back when I still read Robert Jordan) I ran across this tender musical moment from Australian comedy group Tripod. This one was funny because it was a bulls-eye; even though I don’t own a gaming console, I all too often find plenty of things to […]

Having The Talk

If you’re like most parents, The Talk fills you with a strong sense of discomfort. It might completely scare the living daylights out of you; you might find yourself breaking into a cold sweat whenever you think about it. You remember when your own parents gave you The Talk and how desperately uncomfortable everyone was. […]

Study monkey, but with good beer

I have to acquire some Microsoft certifications in a short amount of time. Not a full MCSE, although that’s always been in the gameplan, but at least one passed exam (and thus Microsoft Certified Professional status) from a specific list of exams, Real Soon Now. And hey, if I’m going to go into MCSE Study […]

Guilty pleasures

It’s all Steph’s fault. No, really. She’s the one who introduced me to Il Divo, a new male chorale group put together by American Idol’s venom-tongued emcee Simon Cowell. These guys have some serious opera and theater cred, and I shamefully confess that I fell in love with their cover of Toni Braxton’s “Unbreak My […]

Mileposts

Today was a day of mileposts. It was my first working day of 2006. Because Paul and I got our various projects wrapped up before vacation, I went into the 3Sharp offices and spent a good part of my day doing something I’ve never done before — pack up my office. No, we’re not moving […]
