Hide 'Em In Your Heart scripture memory CDs by Steve Green gets my hearty recommendation for anyone with or without children who wants to memorize scripture in a fun and easy way. We heard about them from our pediatrician (who is a Christian father of young children) and got the first CD from Grandma and Dad-o for Noah's birthday. (More)

I started a new IT job recently, and the majority of the people there have Macs, so I have been bringing one home in order to learn more about them.  They have come a long way in 20 years, when I used to play on a Macintosh SE (with three floppy drives, a nice bonus so you didn't have to switch floppies so much) (More)

I am in the middle of a non-direct red-eye flight from Seattle to Pittsburgh.  I was supposed to go to Charlotte, NC on the way, but USAir called(!) last night to tell me to come a half hour early to the airport (I was already there and had already checked in, and having a relaxing dinner watching the planes taxiing and taking off) because the Charlotte flight was delayed and I was going to be re-routed through Detroit on Northwest. (More)

I went on a fairly long walk tonight (take a look at the topological map too, there were some decent hills) - I am in Seattle with one of my customers who is having their annual retreat, and invited me to come along.

We are staying at the Palisades Retreat Center, which is a lovely place to be - my bedroom faces Puget Sound (basically the same view as in the picture on the above link), and it gets dark at 10 or so, and light at 4 or 5.   (More)

We got our gas bill for February - the highest we have gotten in a long time.  Apparently, the average temperature was eleven degrees colder than last year, causing us to use two and a half time more gas than we did last February.

We did leave our heat on more last month than usual, but that was because our furnace can't quickly (in less than eight hours) raise the temperature of our house ten or fifteen degrees like it can when the temperatures are warmer.

I hope this global warming trend doesn't continue - otherwise, I'll probably have to spend the time and money to insulate my house.

I never knew Josh Harris had brothers, but I recently found out about their web site, and a survey they have published - the questions were based on questions and comments from women who were interested in what guys thought about different articles of clothing, make-up, etc.

The survey results were published today.

But, before you read the survey, check out the common misconceptions.

Note to self: when going to bed, and walking past a heating vent that is blowing cold air, double check that the furnace is working.  52 degrees in the house this morning, and it isn't that cold out (27 or so). (More)

One of the LifeType users reported a security problem in the RSS parser that allowed any file on your system to be read.  ick.

Oscar has fixed it and 1.1.6 will be released tomorrow.

Everyone on my server has been upgraded already and it probably isn't too critical for them, at least in the case of retrieving their mysql password, which was the reported problem, since mysql doesn't allow remote access, so it would have to be a customer of mine.  Though I suppose since any file could have been read, it is possible that some other file could have been opened.

Actually, I just checked the server logs, and no attempts were made to get any files that had a ".." in them, so everyone should be alright.

I finally got around to taking apart our radio in our car that has had a CD stuck in it since we purchased the car.  The dashboard came out unexpectedly easily, so I should have done it a long time ago -- I had been intimidated by not seeing any obvious screws, but when I yanked on it, everything just popped off.

For those of you who read this via RSS, you might be interested in the new RSS feed for comments - that way you won't miss the new comments that show up after you read the post.

Now I just need to get the rest of you to use LifeType, so I can easily read your blogs and comments too....

The Concord Monitor wrote a front page story about my grandfather and the place where he (and my great aunt) live, Havenwood-Heritage Heights.

I thought this quote accurately describes his outlook on life:

Whether I live long enough or not, I don't know. But it's worth a try.

Your Language Arts Grade: 100%
Way to go! You know not to trust the MS Grammar Check and you know "no" from "know." Now, go forth and spread the good word (or at least, the proper use of apostrophes).

Are You Gooder at Grammar?
Make a Quiz
Thank you for taking my little quiz. If you scored high, I promise not to twitch over your typos. If you scored low, please tell me it's because you're a programmer. Hopefully the goofy grammarian I used to work with isn't seething over some misspelling.

Like those lists of song titles if we sung what we really meant (like "I Surrender Some", etc), here is an all-new worship-me cd: It's all about me
