  • guess what I did tonight


  • mommy, who’s Kibo?

    Something odd just occurred to me out of the blue. Now, Candice and I don’t want kids, but imagine a hypothetical couple online as much as we have been. IRC, LiveJournal, Usenet, flickr, and so on. That couple has kids. Ten years later or so, those kids will be able to search for what their […]

  • Flooterbuck lives!

    Ages ago I mentioned Flooterbuck, the fork of infobot that I hack on occasionally. After a long dry spell and unverified claims of the project’s demise, we’ve finally rolled a 1.2.2 release.

  • it’s the best kind

    From tonight’s ground turkey, both disturbing and promising all at once: Soon it will become turk-cos. Also, yesterday I bought jeans that were a 34 instead of a 36 waist. To celebrate this I am being a dork and posting to styleforum’s What Are You Wearing Now thread, which is also sort of a styleforum […]
