Some more progress on the first floor

Look. I've framed in some walls:

I know it looks like hell, but I'm actually making progress. You wouldn't believe the plumbing mess I had to have cleaned up. It looked as if four generations of schizophrenic plumbers had made that room their playground. It is all someone sane now. Next comes the electrician.

George Carlin

If it's true that our species is alone in the universe, then I'd have to say that the universe aimed rather low and settled for very little.

James Thurber

All human beings should try to learn before they die what they are running from, and to, and why.

I'm kind of a big deal. (In Japan)

I was looking through the site traffic report for this site and noticed that I'm kind of a big deal in Japan. I apparently got a bunch of traffic last month comming into my site from Japan. Something like 250+ unique visitors. Oddly though, with just about 20 seconds of time on the site. Weird huh?

Google. I hate you.

This article: Google Maps: Drag and drop to tweak your driving route on lifehacker makes me hate google even more. Not because they are evil or bad or privacy invading bastards (the jury is still out on all of that) but because they are so damned good. They just seem to do everything right. Why can't I be half this smart.

Things are a bit different

Well, things are a bit different. I just changed the hosting of this site and the blog. I realized that I really didn't need a "web site" anymore. Google will host things for me, so why bother running a server in my attic. It just uses up electricity and is probably giving some hacker a platform to launch attacks on various government institutions. Give me a yell if you see any problems.
