I have been evaluating different version control programs for my company for the last month or two. My current evaluation is that all of them are broken, although I hope to discover a good solution someday soon. (More)

There is a spot of wall on the landing of our basement stairs that has been getting soggier as the summer progresses. We've had lots of rain, and every time it rained hard enough, the spot would be damp. I finally called someone who advertised in the Pennysaver and he came this afternoon. (More)

Jonathan likes to watch me "take the diapers out of the washer and put them into the dryer." This evening, he closed the dryer door before I had finished transferring the diapers. So I asked him to please open the door, and he did! Then, when I had finished, I said, "ok, now it is time to close the door. Will you please close the door?" And he did!
One educational opportunity missed if we had a diaper service. (:

Jonathan and I now have this fun game where we sit on the bed and fall back. He will do this by himself now, and he thinks it's very funny. Also, the other day, he did several practice trials of getting off the bed feet first. It's still a little high for him to comfortably get all the way on his own, so we're going to take the bed off the frame soon. He likes to walk on the uneven and unsteady surface of the bed, and he is quite aware and careful of the edge now.

At some point in the middle of the night, Jonathan, in a sing-song quiet voice, said, "Hi-eye, oh, bdoy" It was cute.

That's Jonathan's favorite phrase nowadays. He says it while walking, while looking at lights, and at other random times. Somtimes it's "ooh yeah" sometimes "ho yeah" but it sure sounds like any teenager to me. (:

Jack Ganssle is a conference speaker and has a monthly newsletter that I have been subscribed to for a couple years. He wrote an article called, A Boss's Guide to Software Process Improvement that I found myself agreeing with the majority of it.

Jonathan can now flip the light switches in both directions. He also continues to enjoy pulling the chain switches.

The last of our four gospel fish was so weak on Monday that he got stuck in a plant. Then when I freed him, he got stuck on the filter intake. So it was time to put him out of his misery. I can't do the most humane way - that is, one quick slice to cut the head off - so I did the next, a cup of poison. I used rubbing alcohol, but in the future, I'm going to try to find a more toxic poison, because it seemed to take longer than was really humane. I did apologize to him.

A couple guys here at work have been working on some puzzles. They didn't like my solution to the 3rd puzzle, as they wanted it to be more math base and not like programming. Here are the puzzles:
Assume: a and b are positive integers. (I think this condition only matters for the third puzzle)
1. Given a and b, how do you swap the values without using a third temporary variable?
2. Given a, what is the function to make b = a+1 if a is odd, and b=a-1 if a is even? You are not allowed to use conditional statements.
3. Given a and b, what is the function to make c=max(a,b) without using conditional statements?

On all the windows machine I use, I have auto-completion turned on for the dos prompt. Apparently, I must have gotten that behavior from TweakUI, and since I always install it on a new machine, I thought it was on by default, but apparently not. (More)

Speakeasy is my DSL provider. Snurgle.org also uses them, so that is how I heard about them. We have been using them for a year or so, and the ten times or so that I had to open a customer support ticket, it has gone quite well, and fairly fast response time (within a couple of days at the most). (More)

I signed up with Citibank/Mastercard my freshman year in college. I used to sign up for stuff on campus quite often, as they would give me various free things, t-shirts, radios, $100 gift certificates, etc.  (More)

When I returned our Lingo VOIP modem, I asked UPS to get a signature, since I figured Lingo would try to say they never received it or something. Below is a picture of the signature UPS got from "L Manwiller".  (More)

Someone off-handedly mentioned on the midwives list that so-called "crack babies" are really mis-named. While crack is certainly not the thing to do, medical research says that it isn't any worse than alcohol or tobacco. There are a number of articles, like this one that can be found from Google(More)
