long day at work + going to bed early = no news AUGH. I just found out that I lost all of my August diary entries. Arg arg arg arg arg arg arg. This is very painful.

*sigh* That’ll teach me not to trust myself. I went to a local Barnes & Noble last night to participate in a roundtable discussion of Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game. Turns out it was scheduled for Monday night instead. I’d even written the correct date on my calendar. I just hadn’t double-checked it. Arg. Good to see that Brennen’s homepage is back to normal. He reviews Ender’s Shadow, and it looks […]

I’ve updated yesterday’s diary entry to explain what happened that day. Today, I’m at work, and feeling mostly better; I’m still kinda weak, and I cough occasionally, and my throat’s kinda sore, but other than that, I’m fine. :-) I spent Saturday morning watching cartoons, for once. I caught the premiere of Xyber 9 on FOX, which is a future-fantasy that combines traditional animation and CGI into a rather uneven but […]

Ugh, yet another late update. Sorry again; I had a relapse (current symptom rundown: dry cough, nausea, general unwell feeling). I spent most of the day watching the directors’ commentaries on the DVDs of Antz and Prince of Egypt; both were well worth listening to. In particular, the directors of Antz were entertaining to listen to, besides being extremly informative about changes in the scripts, things they’d made sure to emphasize in certain scenes, […]

Arg, another late one. Sorry; I’m still sick in bed, and not much has happened. What can I say? I apologize from the bottom of my heart. I do feel bad about not updating; I’ve certainly been well enough to do so. It just hasn’t been at the forefront of my mind lately, what with Mom and Dad recovering and all that. And, of course, watching TV all day. ;-) Caught […]

Sorry about not updating yesterday; I caught a cold and spent the day watching TV. I’m back up to about 75% healty now, and I’m at work today. I’m also making progress, thanks to an idea I had when I woke up yesterday. While watching TV, I did manage to see a few interesting things. Digimon is a Pokemon rip-off that has much better artwork, but looks obviously rushed to America […]

Cool! I’ve now got a web-based interface to my diary, so I can update it wherever and whenever (provided I can get a web connection). Not much else to report. My Dad’s going in for knee surgery tomorrow. My Mom’s health is improving, which is good. I’ve added a new photo to You Must Be Kidding Me — go at it!

Personal flying devices. I want one! Just wish they’d give an estimate as to the final cost (as much as they claim it’ll be ‘affordable,’ I have to wonder). Two more pictures on You Must Be Kidding Me. Keep at it! There’s a new poll on the sidebar. I briefly put up a poll about current movies, then switched it after hearing about Patrick Naughton being arrested. According last week’s poll, […]

You Must Be Kidding Me is doing great! Keep commenting, folks! Looks like I’m going to have to redesign a large chunk of Informant. I was originally going to keep a Settings window within an abstract Settings object, but now I think I’m going to have to keep both separate. It’ll take time, but it’s the only way to do it. *sigh* I’m going out on a limb tonight. I was […]

My Dad’s knee is getting worse. Looks like I’ll be taking on more duties around the house as a result. I’m working on the settings window for Informant (the BeOS newsreader) — it turns out to be more complicated than I’d expected. Progress is being made, though. I’ve also been thinking of starting a BeOS (print) magazine, cheaply-made. I don’t think I’ll do it, as I simply wouldn’t have the time, […]
