Well, after looking around for a simple link verification program, I couldn’t find one that suited my needs. So, I wrote one. It’s a little Perl program that looks through a directory, takes every file it finds, and scans it for links. It then checks each link to see if it’s valid, and prints out messages based on what it finds. Pretty useful little thing. However, it’s […]

Listened to a very good sermon by John Yates at The Falls Church this morning, then did some gardening before heading off to AWANA at McLean Bible Church. I’m still fighting off the pollen, and my Mom thinks I may have a cold. So, I didn’t get much done Sunday night; just lay in bed and chatted on IRC, watching TV. Something cool happened, but I’m not totally sure if I’m […]

Went to the final official meeting of “Coffee and Classics” this morning, where we finished talking about Spurgeon’s All of Grace. We’re planning on keeping the group personal, and moving on to Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress in two weeks. Next time, we’ll meet at Suzie’s house, instead of at The Tea Cozy. Unfortunately, I was low on cash — not unusual — so I limited myself to only ordering tea. We got out fairly late, […]

Now this is cool. Cardcaptors (a.k.a. the American dub of Card Captor Sakura) may be showing up on Toonami soon. This is actually not all that surprising; it’s a beautifully-animated show that’s already been dubbed, and has an existing audience on American TV. Very cool. I’ll probably never get a chance to watch it even if it does show up on Toonami (I don’t catch The Big […]

According to my website statistics, my domain is more popular than I had thought. All Anime Music Videos is getting dozens of hits a day, and my own music videos are being viewed every day. That really makes me feel good. People like what I do. Or, at least, are mildly interested in it. Vhatever. When I went out for lunch today, I stopped by the bookstore to look up parenting magazines […]

Ugh. Just lost today’s diary entry, as the domain name was shuffled around. I’m glad it was, for reasons I’ll explain in the next paragraph, but it is annoying. Let’s see if I can reconstruct it, here…. The sysadmin who runs the server that this domain sits on e-mailed me the other day, letting me know that,, and are using about 1 GB […]

OK, so maybe I should be a little less definitive when I make statements such as “I don’t see Be, Inc. getting bought out any time soon.” Specifically, Be, Inc. is now actively looking for ways of getting bought out, or otherwise rescuing themselves from totally running aground. They still have six months’ worth of venture capital, of course, but still. :sigh: Well, if Be […]

Today is the first day of TV Turn-off Week. And while I get somewhat frustrated with some of the rhetoric used in it, their Zen TV Experiment is worth reading. I went back and added some content to diary entries of the last copule of days, just generally fleshing out areas that I hadn’t finished earlier. Other than that, I spent much of today fiddling with things (like adding a couple of reviews […]

It’s a gorgeous day; 80 degrees and partly cloudy. An occasional breeze stirs the newly-growing leaves in the trees. I spent most of the day outside. We decided to skip church again this morning, and instead listened to an excellent tape of Dr. Norris from Fourth Presbyterian Church. Afterwards, I wandered the garden, then mowed the lawns and cleaned the house (or rather, the part that I have to clean). Then, it was off to AWANA. Only a few more […]

Network Solutions sent me an e-mail a few days ago, informing me that I can now get domain names that end in .ws. Yippee. Who the heck wants a domain name ending in .ws? It doesn’t roll off the tongue, and everybody‘s going to ask what it stands for (“WebSite”). I’m not interested in grabbing And why did they roll out .ws before, say, .web? Anyway. Saalon […]
