How can it already be the second week of August? Where has the summer gone?

The good news at work continues. While the wheels have been in motion for a while, a few weeks ago I got a promotion. I'm now at the middle level of the 3 developer tiers. I know I've said it before, but it is nice to finally enjoy work.

This past weekend the family got together in Decatur. It was the first time I'd seen my cousin Sue and her husband in 7 years, and the first time in 8 years I'd seen my cousin Lisa's daughter. I fixed my aunt and uncle's toilet and generally had a nice time.

I recently discovered that Harvey Danger is disbanding. Sad, but as luck would have it, they are playing in Chicago this weekend, and I was able to get tickets. It should be a great show!

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.
