  • Shot at Ottowa Sportsmen’s Club

    These past two evenings I have been shooting. It has been a year, so I was a little hesitant about how I’d do. But, somewhat surprisingly, the first night I shot an Expert score (819 out of 900) and the second night I shot a Master score (571 out of 600). Here are last night’s…

  • Muggy, muggy, muggy

    We are on a vacation of sorts up at my parents’ house in the Upper Peninsula. It is in Chassell Township near Michigan Tech University, for those who know. Anyway, the weather has been hot and muggy with frequent nightime rain. Yuck. Hopefully it dries out soon. I’ll post some pictures before too long.

  • Study suggests shift in methodology for web development is needed

    A recent study mentioned by CyberAtlas (formerly NUA Internet Surveys), Errors Rampant on Gov’t sites, found that 68% of U.S. government web sites had web application failures. Of those with failures, 61% had technical errors and 7% had incorrect data errors. The report suggests that a large portion of other errors were user failure errors,…

  • Bumble won.

    When Lila goes to take a nap, she usually fights it, sometimes never actually falling asleep. This time it looks like she got in a wrestling match with her fluffy bumblebee, and it won. You can’t see it so well, but she is holding both legs around her neck while sleeping.

  • I have a workaround…

    Oh, and just so you don’t get the wrong idea, I have a workaround functioning in place of MS Access. It is crazy to me that I had to put together some web pages to accomplish the fairly simple task that Access was supposed to do.

  • MS Access is my nemesis.

    So, I’ve been working on a project involving OLE data fields in MS Access (exported from SQL server tables). Simply put, the data went in, but it does not come out. Access has trapped the data and is holding it hostage. No ransom amount has been communicated. I take this to be extremely hostile. I…

  • Lila’s first climb up a ladder!

    This file is 680KB, so it may take a little time to load. (You also need Flash Player 6 to view it. You can get the free player at You can imagine Chey’s reaction when I showed her this! 😉

  • Big sis’ coming through; Chey wrapping up the thesis!

    Lisa, my older sister, came down and stayed with us for a little over a week. She helped take care of Lila while Chey was finishing up her Masters thesis. She was a tremendous help; I’m sure that Chey would not have her completed draft (80 some pages, not including appendices) had it not been…

  • Say goodbye, Netscape.

    Here’s the intro blurb from an MSNBC article: Is this the end of Netscape?By David Becker May 29

  • Lila and Ethan at Johnny Rockets

    We comb Lila’s hair. Really. To no avail. Also, note the devotion with which Ethan sucks down his drink. Or maybe it’s brain-freeze, I’m not sure.
