    Pebbles and Bam-Bam… Monsters from “Monsters, Inc.” This year, Halloween included costume changes for the kiddos.  For their school parties (and parade) on Friday, I made them little Pebbles and Bam-Bam costumes to wear. Josh and I decided that their monster costumes would not only be too hot to wear all day, but if you’ve […]

  • September 2008 Photos

    New photos!  We got a chance to take a trip to the zoo this past weekend, so there are lots of good pictures from that as well as some random ones of us around the house.  There are also some adorable pictures of the kids’ first experience with a little baby.  We babysat Craig and […]

    Comcast’s Attack On Downloadable Content – Opinions by ExtremeTech. An excellent insight into the Comcast debacle.

  • Freedom!

    I finished Grand Theft Auto IV! After putting in a total of 52 hours, 47 minutes, and 4 seconds over the past four months, I can finally move on to another game.  I highly recommend this game to anyone holding out. Peace at last.

    This may be the best album yet 🙂  Lots of awesome ones inside.

  • Success!

    Whoa!  I finally got the blogs updated to WP 2.6.  A few of weeks ago I attempted it and had major headaches, and it has been driving me crazy ever since then.  So I gave it another shot tonight and finally got it up and running. Anyway, not really too many changes you guys will […]

  • The Texas Heat

    The past week has seen every day hit about 105°F.  So I thought I’d share with you the craziness of the heat inside a car when it’s that hot outside.  Below are pictures of my sunglasses from American Eagle.  I’ve had these for several years, and they’ve held up great so far.  That is until […]

  • Blogs Unavailable for the Moment – Updated

    Update: Well, after a day of searching through forums I still haven’t resolved the issue.  The blogs have been rolled back to 2.5.1 until I get a fix.  On the bright side, you can log in again! I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, but the blog log-ins are not letting you in right now.  I […]

  • Technobabbles is Live!

    Woot!  After a couple months worth of off-and-on coding, the WordPress theme for Technobabbles is finished, and I launched the site late last night.  I was debating whether or not to actually launch the site with a bunch of pre-written content, or just to launch it empty and let it fill up as it goes.  […]

  • 3 Red Lights

    I guess it was only a matter of time, but in the back of my mind I was kind of hoping mine would run the distance.  Everyone I know that has an Xbox 360 has had to return it due to the infamous “3 Red Lights” failure; but not me, mine lasted almost three full years. 🙂  But […]

  • 4th of July Weekend

    Wow, what a great 3 day weekend we had over the 4th.  The past month has been pretty crazy for our family.  Meg started her new job, which led to the kids starting daycare, and Meg and I had to figure out who was dropping off and picking up Xavier and Ali.  We’ve finally got […]

  • Ali-gator, animal-hater

    Maybe it’s selfish, but since Xavier is the spitting image of Josh and mimics everything he does, I can’t help but get a little excited whenever Ali shows signs of taking after her mama.  I secretly love when she looks at me with that look that clearly says, “No way lady,” or when she fights […]

  • Woopra Beta – First Impressions

    This post has been moved to Technobabbles.  You can now find it here:

  • Gallery Changes

    Just a quick blurb about the Gallery.  I recently found a slick new theme for it that fits into the site design a lot better than the standard white one.  All previous functionality is still present, there is just a small button in the top left portion of the page to show the side […]

  • Woopra Approval!

    Woot! was finally approved for the Woopra beta.  Woopra is a very new cutting-edge website statistics application, viewable through the members area of the website and through a desktop client for Linux, Mac, and Windows.  Here is a screenshot of the dashboard area, I’m gonna go play with it for awhile now.  I’ll post […]

  • Crazy Video

    I came across this today, and it was just too creative (and slightly creepy) to pass up.  Check it out, it had to take an unbelievable amount of time to do. 

  • Photos from April

    I just put up the frontpage post about Ali’s birthday, with a link to the pictures.  Since I was a little behind with photo-uploading, I also did a huge album with a bunch of pictures from April.  Some of them are from a couple weekends hanging out with Mark and Stephanie, and the rest are […]

  • Ubuntu 8.04 – Hardy Heron

    Wow, what a weekend it was for my computer.  Being the cutting-edge obsessed sort of guy that I am, I decided to upgrade immediately to the newest version of Ubuntu (which came out last Thursday).  My plan was to backup the documents I wanted to keep, and then format the drive and do a nice […]

  • Throwing in the Towel on Nintendo

    I want a Nintendo Wii. I’ve wanted one since the day it was announced. I’ve looked at every store that carries that sort of thing everytime I’ve been in one. I admit, I haven’t put forth a ton of effort into getting one; but my wife can attest to the fact that its nearly impossible […]

  • Easter Photos

    This year was Ali’s first Easter! The kids are still too little to have very much candy, so we kept that to a minimum in their baskets; but we got them a few other things to keep them entertained: some gigantic bubble blowing thingies a couple new outfits some chalk for their easel big box […]

  • Twenty-four Candles

      Happy birthday to you.   We love you so much. Meg, Xave & Ali    

  • My husband is a moron.

    For those of you that noticed the momentary change to the title of my previous entry, I apologize. My husband is a moron and didn’t understand the clever use of parenthetical phrasing in the tite, (Im)Patiently Waiting, and felt the need to “correct” it and make it (I’m)Patiently Waiting. After a quick verbal lashing, and […]

  • WordPress 2.5

    Success! I just upgraded to WordPress 2.5 (Release Candidate 1).  Overall it was a pretty painless upgrade.  I accidentally deleted my wp-config.php file during the process, so I had to hunt down my database data to fill in a new one.  Other than that though, I didn’t have any problems.  All my plugins still […]
