Woohoo! A few years ago I did a bunch of parts in a radio drama/comedy/mystery something or other 😉 It’s going to be on the radio! May 29th – June 19th, Saturdays at 3pm on 90.3FM KFAI, in Minneapolis, and 106.7 FM St Paul. http://www.kfai.org/ Apparnetly they’re stored online in Real Audio format for 2Read More
It’s spring! Spring! Yay! KNow what that means? No, not baseball, not walks in the woods, not hayfever. It means it’s time to get my mom back on the ‘net.
After 2 months of development, debugging, and testing, the transition of the Stonekeep web site from static pages to Moveable Type is complete. Special thanks to Lisa for all her work on the new design, and to Razil and Catya for debugging and design suggestions. Also thanks to Pancua for the graphics help. The newRead More
It’s not news that I’ve long wanted a sailboat. I inherited a love of sailing from my dad, but the last few years I haven’t had much of a chance to exercise it. We have a small Hunter 140 up in Maine, but it is really too small for me to handle (I actually outweighRead More
Sorry bout that folks, we made a change to the LJ feed setup, which caused livejournal to assume all the posts happened just now. THis’ll make the postings look better (there was an extraneous link in there).
… to hear about how the Stressy Meeting I Was Nervous About went this (Tuesday) evening, it went fine. No major stress (in my direction), lots of good feedback from people, and things in place to complete the ‘things that broke’. Another meeting or two in the works to finalize, but we’re definately now headedRead More
I tell ya. For an older game staton (PS-1’s are about 6 years old now), for an old version of the game (released August 2002), for a goofy concept (“So, lemme get this straight. IT’s a video game. you plkay it on your tv. but you… dance? in front of it? like, on special pads…Read More
“Relationships are 2% sex, 98% trying to figure out where to go for dinner.” – Kyle Smith on NPR’s Morning Edition
I’m going to be giving a lecture next week at the Boston Linux Users Group on LTSP – the Linux Terminal Server Project, and how I built the CONGO system on it. If any of you have seen me working conventions with a pile of equipment and nifty keano little flatscreen terminals, this lecture isRead More
When you want to get rid of something, and you really want to say what you think about the item. This poor fellow has a router table he doesn’t think much of. “This Ryobi router table is the worst thing I’ve ever spent money on. Period. I’ve wasted money on a lot of things inRead More
Okay, I admit it, I’m a lame bum and I seem to have missed ever seeing Invader Zim (warning, Flash-heavy site). Fortunately, I got a chance to watch some this weekend at AnimeBoston and I’m sorely tempted to order the DVD now. What a hoot. Gir is a great character and I can see whyRead More
The most common comment people make while registering at the event. (behind the reg counters is the server stack that runs the app and the database. On top is a rackmount LCD screen that is running… The Matrix screensaver).
I’m halfway through working AnimeBoston, and here’s a few interesting observations. 1) Every hotel I’ve been to that hosts a convetnion can’t handle a large scale registration burst. There’s always screamingly long lines, and a lot of annoyed attendees. Hotel, when you book a convention on a weekend, there’s going to be a HUGE burstRead More
For folks following at home, Catya, Ted and I decided to try and sync up all our calendars so we could share them in one place, and view each others schedules. As I’d like to be able to do this for my business, this seemed like a good place to ‘test the waters’ as itRead More
Someone had posted this to an IRC channel I was on, so I tracked down the original posting. It’s a summary of the people you’re likely to meet at a science fiction convention
