Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. May you truly be thankful for every great blessing in your life. The holidy was excellent over here. The meal itself was excellent; everything tasted like a king’s banquet. Well, everything except the rolls; for some reason, you could have used them to build a wall with. So we used ’em as dog biscuits.

Uuuuugh. I feel like Rice Krispies left in the bowl for an hour. I stayed up waaaay too late last night. First it was talking to Saalon. Then it was talking to Brennen. Then it was working on Informant. I only got something like 3 or 4 hours of sleep, on top of shaving hours off of my sleep for the past week or so. Tonight, I plan to eat dinner, and go straight to bed. On the plus side, […]

Eeeeeeeek! No updates in four days! My apologies. Two major events: One, I’ve been accepted as the BeOS Guide at :-) Tonight I plan to fully update it with all of the appropriate links and content, and it’ll hopefully go live in about a week and a half. Two, the head of my project at work has recently decided to overhaul his leadership style, and get more actively involved in the project. He feels he’s been more […]

Stumbled across Microsith, a refreshingly non-vitriolic spoof of Microsoft, and its similarities to the Empire in a certain galaxy far, far away. Very well done (particularly the mock interview with Gates, and the annoying pop-up Darth Paperclip). Last night was rather interesting — I had planned to spend a lot of time on Informant, but the computing editor at wanted to chat about my progress. Looks like I’ll be accepted as their BeOS Guide! […]

My sister called my Mom this morning and had a long chat. Everything seems pretty much back to normal, though my sister has taken the criticisms in the letter to heart, which in a way is a good thing. I’m six verses into my memory packet. I want to have eight done by Sunday; I think I should make it. I hope. I wonder if I’ll be self-disciplined enough to keep up with it over the coming weeks […]

Well, that little blow-up of yesterday seems to have calmed down; my sister called me today at work, and was fine on the phone. She just wanted to apologize if she’d offended me (which she hadn’t). We had a pretty normal conversation, and that was that. Hopefully this won’t cause any major relationship problems. My work on Informant has heated up, mainly because somebody else released a beta […]

We had a big family to-do today; Dad sent off a letter to my sister that basically flamed her for the way she acted last week. Which wasn’t a big deal; she hadn’t been feeling well at all, and as a result was sort of distant from everybody. But she didn’t tell us that, and so after agreeing that she had acted oddly, Dad sent off this letter. […]

Wow. Singing this morning at church was fantastic. I got a lot of compliments from people. I guess the Lord does bless things that way. I started out with a song for which I had a cassette tape accompaniment. When the time came, I bounded up to the little stage, pressed “Play” on the tape deck, and prepared to sing. The music began to play…at about ten decibels. So, with a grin, I stopped singing, stopped the tape, turned up […]

Well, Mom and Dad were out all day at a Boundaries seminar, which they enjoyed greatly. I spent the day basically watching TV and taking care of the dogs, plus doing a few little computer things. I was hoping to get some work done on Informant, but hopefully I can work on it tomorrow. I also picked out a few songs to sing tomorrow at church. Earlier in the week, I was asked to do the music for this […]

Got quite a bit done on Informant yesterday evening, which is a Good Thing. The Compose window now pops up correctly, with headers and all that all filled out. Now I get to figure out why the quoting code I downloaded from is choking on a simple bool variable (“true undefined”?! Huh?). I watched some of WWF Smackdown yesterday, since Arnold Swartzenegger was on. Unfortunately, they spent […]
