  • DNA Study Finds Chihuahuas Aren’t Dogs

    Eric, my older brother, sent this link to me. Does my heart good. What we all knew, intuitively, to be true, is now backed up by science! ::snicker:: Read about the study at this Watley Review page.

  • Two “separate” readings

    First, Digital Web Magazine is redesigned. I think it looks sharp, nice colors. I wonder how much the design was influenced by the IA site, Boxes & Arrows

  • Props to Capital Area District Library on their web site

    Was just looking up something on the CADL site for my wife, and, as is my habit, I took a quick peek at the HTML code (View -> View Source in Safari). I was pleased to see first that it appears to be valid XHTML 1.0, and quickly noted some nice uses of accesskey attributes…

Anyway, in Equilibrium there is this Gun Kata that these super-cops do (they’re called Clerics). Looks like a tai-chi kinda…

Most of the time, it is a simple matter of backing up some files, uploading some new files, and occassionally making a DNS change so that a domain name actually points to said…

  • Yooper Cooler

    Mike Stafford (schooling up at Lake Superior State Univ. in Sault Ste. Marie) sent this photo. Thought it was funny, so I’m posting it. I grew up in the U.P., for those who didn’t know.
