Cancelled My Old Account

Ahh, bittersweet moment. I love the new hosting company – my page loads lightening fast (from where I sit) but I’m kind of sad to bid adieu to my hold hosting company. The owner and I go way way back to the world of BBSes from back in the late 80s, and I’ve been a […]

Wow, we’re #1?

Just saw the news report that Massachusetts tops the “State Technology and Science Index,” scoring over 80 out of 100 (in what, I don’t know) according to the Milken Institute, which conducted the study. If we’re number one, and the job outlook is horrific here, it must be a black hole in other states. Yes, […]

Freak Me Out, Man

Okay, if you read regularly, and you read the old site this past weekend, I made my standard “Oh, Junior rode his bike so it’s going to snow in the next couple of days” ha ha joke. Flurries this morning. I nearly ran screaming back into the house. Maybe that would have been a good […]

Hmmm. I’m still getting the old server

Looks like this DNS thing is taking its time. I’m still getting this page, instead of the new one.

NEW DOMAIN ALERT!

I am going to push through the new DNS server address for my site move. This change may take 24 or more hours to wind it’s way through Internetland. If things don’t work right, the new DNS server ID is going to be http://216.65.85.77/. If you use that address, you will see the draft version […]

Crappy Book Report

Okay kids, my sister is doing the three-day Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Boston this year, and your support would be unbelievable. Click on the link below to donate any amount. She’s walking in honor of my aunt, she of the amazing green pepper chicken thigh recipe. It’s tax deductible and it’s for an […]

My Commenting Software

Okay point taken in the comments of the entry below this one. My commenting software leaves something to be desired. Here’s the thing: the people who created it don’t exist anymore, so there’s no support (or wasn’t, last time I checked) and I’m not a pro PHP programmer. But the key is that I’m not […]

Ode to Spring

Ha! I’ll bet you were expecting a sonnet or something! Well the joke’s on you! I couldn’t write a decent sonnet right now if you paid me. Well, okay, maybe if you paid me I could put a little effort into it and come up with something. So ignore that whole first paragraph. And the […]

I Love the Night Life, I Love to Boogie

Okay, not really. Am I getting old? I don’t like to stay up late anymore. If I’m not cozied up in bed by ten, I feel like I’m going to be a miserable wreck in the morning. I thought the older you got, the less sleep you need. I think I’m reverting to needing my […]
