I took a long look at the site over the past few weeks of not having anything else to do but studying and caring for a 2 year old and a 1 month old. Some MAJOR cleanups are in store for the next few weeks. Dead links here, old styles there. I have stuff that has needed attention for over 10 years here! Remember that this site has been up since 1998. That's alot of HTML3 hiding here and there.
I've also resumed biking. The mountain bike has pretty much been an on again off again thing with me over the past 20 years or so. But I've been waking up everyday at 6 AM to get my daily 10 miles in. Its something new and out of the norm for me. We'll see how it goes.
Programming is also something new for me. Even though I took programming in college and then all my jobs afterward were anything but computer related, I feel I'm playing catch-up. I basically have to cram 4 years of college level computer programming into about 6 months. Major fun! Python, MySQL, PHP and Linux all at the same time. Programming can be a real challenge with a two year old trying to get at the keyboard.
The cost of gas has also really left us in a pinch as well. The highest I've seen it so far is $4.25 for regular. I'm looking into alternative means of transportation. Who knows, if gas gets upto $5.00 a gallon I just may have to start biking to work again. Or maybe get a motorcycle...hmmm...
But in the meantime the site will be getting an overhaul for the next few weeks. If you all have any ideas feel free to chime in. I could use them.
And by the way...please support my bid for President. Thank you.
