New Look for FWA

I meant to mention this a while back. Way, way long ago, when I was still a fledgling computer nerd who barely knew his way around Flash… my friend Ron introduced me to a site called Favourite Website Awards. Over time, I started to check this site daily – and it quickly overtook Macromedia’s Site of the Day as my…

Sushi and a Movie

Met up with Chelsea tonight, and the two of us had dinner at Kamehachi in Oldtown (thanks Ben!). It’s been ages since I’ve had some real, genuine sushi (the food court stuff at work just doesn’t quite cut it). Tonight was very good, and very indulgent. Between the two of us, we can pack away a goodly amount of sushi……

My Eyeballs are, apparently, quite fantastic

Went in to get an eye exam for the first time in like 3-4 years. My prescription didn’t change all that much (surprisingly), and though I’m extremely nearsighted… the doc told me that he was pretty taken at how healthy my eyes were. The top one percentile of health was where he put it, saying that he was “surprised” to…

Another Potential Bet Arises

Over the weekend, Matt was at a bachelor party and our recent Arby’s Challenge came up in conversation. During this conversation, a new bet rose up. Here’s the challenge: You have a full work day to complete this task, 9 AM – 5:00 PM. In that time, you must eat one of every item from the vending machine at your…

Happy Birthday, Rhythm

Got invited out tonight by Justin andDave, who’re doing this dual-DJ thing ata place called Rhythm. I also got invitedout by Kristen and Brook, who were also planning on attending. My initial reaction (earlier in the week) was to decline, and stay in. I’ve been in hermit modefor a while now, and the idea of going out wasn’t all that…

Errands

Woke up super early, and went clothes-shopping. Which, if you’ve seen the pictures of me here,is a rare thing. I wear like the same 5 t-shirts over and over again. But – since winter’s drawing near, I need to wear things that retain heat better than t-shirts. It’s weird, because I rarely spend money on myself. Particularly clothes. But to…

Slow

Sadly, I’ve got nothing today. More study at work, and with it the same frustrations. I think I’m going to stop reading and move over to coding some… just to see if I can implement some of the theories I’ve been reading about so far. Came home tonight, and stayed in. I’m planning on getting up early for errands tomorrow,…

Camera

by Ted Kooser It’s an old box camera,a Brownie, the color and shapeof the battery out of a car,but smaller, lighter.All the good times—the clumsy picnics on the grass,the new Dodge,the Easter Sundays—each with its own clear instantin the fluid of time,all these have leaked away,leaving this shell,this little battery without a spark.

Holy Traffic, Revisited

Looking over my referrer logs, I got slammed yesterday and today. Since this morning, I’ve had roughly 6 gigs worth of traffic. The one site that keeps showing up is some sort of link site – the Spanish equivalent of Boing Boing or ebaumsworld. It’s odd, but I’m getting more traffic now than when I got linked up by ebaumsworld….

I feel ST-OOP-ID

The past few days at work, I’ve spent my time studying. Not building or coding anything, just cracking the Moock Actionscript book, along with the Object-Oriented Programming with Actionscript book I got, way back in July. Earlier today, I was making decent progress. I understood most of the core concepts, and was following each example. Then, there’d be one thing…
