Ok, I lied last time. Here's one last post before Blogger turns off FTP. We'll see if/when I resurrect this blog in one form or another.
Excepting a possible credit, TDS is finally completely behind me. And after having no DSL for 5 1/2 days, phone and DSL are now both with AT&T. Hopefully things just stay working so I don't have to deal with any of this again for a while.
Slowly but surely various things are getting cleaned up around the house, inside and out. Over the past few weeks I've done some serious brush trimming outside, and inside I've been going through and organizing things that were dumped once and never looked at again. A somewhat draining process, but also a rewarding one.
I've had a few small victories at work lately, but for the most part things are pretty status quo there.
Fortunately the kids are still doing good. Jake is getting a bit hard of hearing, but other than that, the vet claims he's as healthy as a dog several years younger. And after a few months of a strict diet, Freckles has lost a good amount of weight. They are both just as crazy as ever.
This feels a bit like I'm writing a Christmas letter.
Well, to the few people who still read this thing, I bid you adieu. It's possible I'll move to some other form of blogging software, but I don't have any immediate plans, nor is doing so at the front of my mind. If anyone has any great ideas, feel free to share them.

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.
