The Google perspective

Monday, April 11th, 2005

Google really has a strange perspective on the world.

Noise

Wednesday, April 6th, 2005

Drunk people at 3 am outside the window, cars constantly booming by, construction crews in the morning, a truck every first Wednesday and Thursday of each non-bitterly-cold-winter month with the recorded voice of a man shouting in the thickest Boston accent anyone has ever heard shouting something about towing cars (if parked on what happens to be the wrong side of the street) from 5:30 am to 9 am, city workers hacking trees to pieces with buzzsaws and big chippers for hours in the early morning, and — now this — some buffoon outside with a jackhammer and some other heavy machinery who has been operating for a long while now even though it’s nearly midnight; these are all things I can hear from my apartment when I am trying to get some sleep.

Constant construction sounds from the building being built next to work sure does not help my headaches that even Tylenol, Aspirin, Sudafed, and caffeine can’t cure.

Why does Cambridge have to be so noisy?

Back to normal

Friday, April 1st, 2005

Okay, my website is now back to normal. Hope you all enjoyed the April Fools theme. (:

If you find a bug in this new theme, just let me know. (Hopefully it works in IE/Win just fine; we’ll see…)

Another new theme!

Friday, April 1st, 2005

Due to comments about colors on LCDs, I made a few alterations to the new theme. It should now have much better contrast. (:

New website design!

Friday, April 1st, 2005

Linuxart.com now sports a new (and original) website design!

I’ll probably spruce it up in the next week or so.

About Garrett LeSage…

Friday, April 1st, 2005

Garrett is a designer, photographer, artist, and computer enthusiast.

His portfolio (which is, admittedly, several years old and is in need of an update) shows logo design, icon work, web development, and many more visual-related activities throughout his career.

For the past several years, he has focused on interaction design, encompassing user interface design and usability.

He joined Novell three years ago, after spending a couple years with Red Hat (and before that, a few well spent years at VA Research / Linux Systems / Software).

In his spare time, he reads, hikes, and takes a ton of pictures with his cameras. When not working or shooting photos, he can be found either updating his website (once every few blue moons), hanging out with friends, or volunteering time to help people out.

If you’d like, you can contact Garrett at: garrett {at} linuxart {dot} com.
