Carrie, Jason and Amie, oh my!

A bit late on the post here but oh well: Carrie, her husband Jason and their daughter Amie drove up to Toronto from Chicago last weekend for a visit. It was a fun time — Saturday exploring Kensington Market and more of Toronto, and Sunday at the Toronto Zoo, and then in the evenings the […]

Updateything!

Long time no post. It’s always long time no post, isn’t it? Sigh. Got the Christmas icon back, at least! Here’s a weird one for you: I installed Windows (XP Pro) on my laptop the other day. Yes, yes, hell’s frozen over, I know. I need to work in both Windows and Unix regularly, so […]
