in which I write about stuff

everybody wave hi!

So my mom and my kid sister got chosen to be a Nielsen Netratings family. (How? They’re not quite sure.) Of course I told Elizabeth that she had to visit my site lots, and some of the sites I like, too. 😉 Here’s part of what I wrote her, in terms of recommendations: Most of […]

The Windows version will not be updated beyond the current 6.0; allegedly the next major version will be part of the […]

where am I….

since for some reason (arg!) my server is down, I’m recording things here. (I should probably look into a more stable — tho probably more expensive (ow) — host.) * Wikis & weblogs * Wikilog * Bill Moyers interview with Jon Stewart (like anita, it’s one of the few things I miss about having television.
