New Photos & Archive Gallery Updates!

Friday, November 30th, 2001

I took a ton of pictures of the downtown area yesterday. They’re now available here on the site in the Walkabout photo archive gallery.

Also, I have updated my photo archive gallery with various new features and modified layouts. In addition to sporting a few new spiffy tweaks, it has multi-page support. Because of this, I have grouped the multi-part photo galleries into one per set. There is an included link to view all the thumbnails at once as well, for those of you who want it.

Hopefully I’m Still on the ‘Net

Thursday, November 29th, 2001

Today is the fateful day where @Home may meet its demise. As Comcast@Home is my ISP, I hope that things will work. If @Home is shut down, Comcast should have an alternate network in place. If not, they suggest a backup of using NetZero, a "free" Windows-only (excluding Windows 2000 and Windows XP) ISP infiltrated with numerous banner ads. As I don’t use Windows, that "plan" could be a problem.


Continual Construction

Wednesday, November 28th, 2001

The Internet is in a constant state of flux. When people usually talk about the several Terrabytes of information available on the ‘Net, they’re talking about the Internet at any one given time. Over the course of its history, the Internet has spawned new services, functions, and ways of reevaluating the way we use computers. It has enabled giants to get larger and have more leverage (think Microsoft) and also has been fortuitous in helping share free software with the world.

Throughout all of the changes caused by the ‘Net, one aspect about it remains the same: It’s still changing.

Because of this fact, I’ve been reorganizing directory structures on, and, at the request of Trae, tweaking various parts of my site (namely the photo viewer). I’m doing my part of changing the Web. How about you?

Happy T-Day!

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

I had a lot of wonderful food at my parents’ house. I really love the holidays (and every other day) when my mom cooks, as she’s a great chef. Whenever Christmas or Thanksgiving rolls around, and my she is cooking, you know it can’t be beat.

How was everyone’s Thanksgiving Day experience?

Feel free to post and discuss.

Boston, By Car

Thursday, November 8th, 2001

Recently, I visited Boston for a fly-in meeting @ OSDN. Anyway, I took pictures of the foliage along the way. Unfortunately, as it was more of a quick jaunt up to the offices, I didn’t have time to actually get out and explore. I did what I could, so I took pictures while actually in the car. Yes, all of these (except for the first few of Dean and Gareth and a few trees) were taken while I was in a car. Some of them turned out pretty good considering.
