More lack of updates, I guess. Sears sucks. I'm not sure how much longer that will last the way things are going. It would be one thing if they were paying me a ton of money, but they aren't. Just a lot of idiocy and crappy hours.
In related news, I got word today about a job possibility in Janesville. The drive would suck, but it sounds good otherwise. We'll see.
In what spare time I have I've been doing more vinyl transfers. It's pretty amazing how good some of this stuff is coming out. Now if LPs in good shape were only easier to find...
Amy is in Chicago right now to see the Dixie Chicks. I'm not sure why, exactly.

I've been a pretty poor blogger lately, eh? Not only have I not kept mine updated, I haven't been reading others on any regular basis. I blame it all on this whole "working" thing. Go figure.
I'm not sure there's a lot to report. My latest obsession is doing LP to CD transfers. I think I've got my little system down pretty good. I just need more time, that's all...
The Bloys will be here this weekend. Currently they really don't have a place to sleep. Hopefully we can take care of that by the time they get here.

So Amy picked up an old G3 for me at the Swap Shop the other day. The processor isn't quite as fast as my other machine (400 MHz G3 vs. 800 MHz G4), but just about everything else is better, including the video system. Of course, setting it up has been a headache, as my old hard drive didn't want to work on the wide SCSI card installed, which meant putting in my old narrow card as well. And this 21" monitor doesn't like really high resolutions. Oh well. It's working ok so far...
One thing the improved video made me do was pull out Quake. Man is that a great game. After all these years it still holds up really well, IMO. Maybe that's just because I played it into the ground. Whatever the case, it would sure be nice to get a deathmatch game going sometime...

DOB 2/16/79. I'm a web developer at the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. I like lots of old music, including The Who. I spend a lot of time working with computers. And my favorite TV show (when I actually decide to watch TV, that is), obviously, is The Simpsons. Education:
In May 2002 I officially graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a BS in computer science. In 1997 (man that seems like a long time ago) I graduated from Washington Park HS. Yes, I know, that site isn't very impressive, and no, I haven't touched it for several years.
One of the best experiences I have ever had was on a trip called Western Field Studies. This is a 33 day adventure throughout the western United States. Students travel on a school bus to national parks, monuments, forests, and places of historical interest and camp out (in tents or under the stars). I was a part of trip 25, which took place in the summer of 1996. A first for WFS was we took along a laptop computer and kept up a web site. That link will take you to the 1996 site, where there is a link to the current site.
