Ok, when I said "I want spring", I didn't mean for a few days, only to be replaced with even more snow.

A few weekends ago I finally put up the curtain tie-backs that had been sitting around for about two years. Now to work on the dining room walls...

Also a few weekends ago I picked up a pair of Dynaco A-25 speakers on a whim from St. Vincent de Paul. They cost a bit more than something you'd typically find there, but I had read good things about them, and I've been really happy with them. They're in pretty good shape and don't sound "dated" at all (having been originally released in 1969). Very natural sounding...

I want spring.

I suppose it's never too late for something to go wrong, but it seems things have finally wrapped up with TDS. The phone number got switched over to the new line and the old line was disconnected without disconnecting the new one in the process. The DSL still isn't ideal, but it's better than it's ever been, which is something.

I took the kids to the park twice last weekend. It was the first time in a long time, and they had a blast. They were *really* tired after the second time.

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.
