And here I was, thinking I was updating this diary often. I’ve gone on a bit of a streamlining binge. I’m starting to cut a few things out of my life, including maintenance of the FAQ, and Cool SF. Now I’m trying to find a few other things that I can get rid of. My DVD of Project A-Ko (check out this excellent website for summaries and such, particularly the FAQ and in-jokes) — the anime that’s a spoof […]

Updated Cool SF. I went to the dump last night and got a load of mulch. In the rain. I actually enjoyed it; I was the only one there, I was able to enjoy the weather, and heck…what’s a little rain matter? When I got back to the house, I was amazed to see that my parents had already sanded and painted my French door. The door itself still needs one more coat of paint, but other than that, they did […]

In the grey summer garden I shall find youWith day-break and the morning hills behind you.There will be rain-wet roses; stir of wings;And down the wood a thrush that wakes and sings.Not from the past you

Arrrrg, I lost yesterday’s update when my work computer froze up. I managed to re-constitute it today and post it. Anyway, not too much going on. I’ve spent some time this week going over my taxes, in preparation for actually calculating them out tonight or tomorrow (ideally tonight). Thanks to my huge losses in the name of Papyrus, I should get a sizable refund. Meanwhile, I’ve been pretty faithful to my nightly schedule, […]

Hmmm, haven’t much felt like updating lately. My French door is finally in. All that we have left to do is sand and paint the walls and trim. Ta-da. As a result, I’ve been spending much more time in my side garden. I stopped by a local Borders books last night. It was the first time in months that I’d actually wandered the aisles of a brick-and-mortar bookstore (I usually prefer, and I have […]

Well, I planted some West African impatiens, bleeding hearts, and…something else in pots in my garden last night. I don’t exactly have a wonderland yet, but it’s improving. The impatiens, particularly, look good. Meanwhile, I’ve been gearing up to drive up to Saalon’s over the weekend. I don’t expect to update this diary until Monday or so, as a result. We hope to spend the weekend watching the Tenchi Muyo! OAV series, then […]

Saalon tipped me off to a new Sci-Fi Channel show: Exposure. It’s an hour-long showcase of original short film, in the SF/fantasy/horror genre. Impressively, out of the five shorts used, only one was sucky. Tim Burton’s short piece “Vincent” was hilarious, as was “Robotic Showdown” (?). Good stuff, well worth watching. Saalon was online as the show played, so we got to watch it together, in a virtual sense. […]

Sorry for the lack of updates lately; the scripts on the site went screwy and I was afraid I might lose my diary file if I updated it through my web interface. That, and I had trouble telnetting/FTP’ing in. Ah well. Page views on my site have skyrocketed, increasing ten-fold from previously. Be has counted over half a million official downloads of BeOS, and the actual number from unofficial downloads probably puts the number at well […]
