As you may or may not have noticed, I've been tinkering with things here quite a bit. Recent photo albums are now displayed on the left, and I've changed a bunch of stuff behind the scenes. At this point I think just about everything is working correctly, but if you find something that doesn't, let me know.

I think I'm finally starting to get over whatever bug it was I had. It wasn't until Monday that I started to feel a little better, and I think today I'm finally mostly over it. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

On Monday I did take the kids swimming. Freckles wasn't too sure of things are first and decided she wasn't going to stay. She went right for the gate, went up the sidewalk and went right across Olin Ave and down the block. Not running, but a trot that seemed to say "ok, I'm going home now". I followed her across Olin and managed to call her to me. We went back in, and after that all was fine.

On the way out the door yesterday morning I took some pictures of some sleeping bumble bees.

Feeling pretty crappy. Thursday night I had a lot of sinus drainage down my throat, and yesterday I started just generally feeling bad. After an hour at work I went to the doctor and ended up taking the rest of the day off. Not sure exactly what's wrong, but I've got some heavy duty pseudoephedrine for the symptoms. I hope it clears up soon.

I'm taking 3 classes at MATC this semester. If all goes well, by next summer I'll have the Internet Developer Certificate. Not a huge deal, but it will be nice to have.

The Simpsons Archive

Vital stats:
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.

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.
