in which I write about stuff

Archives for August 2002

hot night

for Washington, anyway, and so I can’t sleep. had to write to Steph and Irina to tell them that I’m not going to the reunion. 🙁 that’s the part I’m most bummed about, because they live way far away, and we haven’t talked in about 8 years. (they don’t ‘blog, either, so far as I […]

my apologies – and write what you don’t know.

to Dorothea, for not updating my link to her weblog in my sidebar. tonight, I hope, and until then this will do for me, at least. (thank goodness she is well linked by others!) and speaking of Dorothea, yesterday’s entry about writing & school, and the entry it linked to (primarily about being an American, […]


– Daewoo still sucks, but that’s not really my problem any more. (a full report to come) – I’m copying my Steering the Craft exercises into my old “AilaLog” – will link when I’m done. – the pie listed below turned out pretty good – next time, add more flour to the filling. (also got […]

[where we bought […]


– Usability applied to life – Pardon me for being forward (this reminds me of something Joe sent once – then again, Joe had very bad luck with forwarded email….) “I do not care about your heart-warming bullshit, for I am a stone and my heart is cold.” more importantly, go read this now – […]

reconsidering things

I’ve changed my mind about the reunion (10th HS)…I think I’m going to skip it. too much money, too much vacation time, too much time travelling w/out C (who can’t go regardless), and too much to do here with the house. and who do I want to see? only a few people: Steph, Irina, maybe […]

I’m being invaded!

– this is quaking aspen, and it is everywhere. how can it be stopped?

you will now be overwhelmed.

over the weekend I’m going to make these into real links and at least add what they’re linking to. http://www.anthro.com/template.asp?CartName=AdjustaCart&Tag=grid http://tate.cix.co.uk/ http://j-marshall.com/ http://docbook.sourceforge.net/ http://www.viridiandesign.org/notes/301-350/00325_open_source_speech.html http://www.quicktopic.com/blog/archives/000085.html http://www.hyperorg.com/blogger/images/markets.gif http://www.blogtree.com/ http://www.websitetips.com/business/ http://www.janisian.com/article-fallout.html http://levin.blogspot.com/ http://www.nytimes.com/2002/07/28/magazine/28ONLANGUAGE.html http://www.bayarea.com/mld/siliconvalley/business/columnists/dan_gillmor/3751660.htm http://ftrain.com/google_takes_all.html http://www.cnn.com/2002/US/07/26/army.wives/index.html http://www.angelfire.com/wa/loungerat/ and http://www.angelfire.com/wa/fourwinds/bardbook.html http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-gl/2001OctDec/0474.html http://www.1976design.com/testarea/jw/index.php http://www.pubserv.washington.edu/lunchbox/ http://www.inference.phy.cam.ac.uk/dasher/DasherSummary2.html http://isen.com/archives/020723.html http://www.bookmouth.com/getthewordout.html http://www.allaboutvision.com/cvs/ http://www.fawcette.com/dotnetmag/2002_07/magazine/features/jsemeniuk/default_pf.asp http://metku.net/cryo/ http://www.bricklin.com/peoplepay.htm http://www.botany.com/coreopsis.html http://www.kottke.org/02/07/020721six_degrees_.html http://www.edemocracy.gov.uk/ http://www.textartisan.com/caveatlector/archive/2002_07.html#e000310 http://www.bayarea.com/mld/mercurynews/news/local/3385422.htm?template=contentModules/printstory.jsp http://www.nytimes.com/2002/07/16/opinion/16KRUG.html http://www.washington.edu/uwtv/webmaster/ http://www.siia.net/sif/spec.html […]
