Virtual Move and catching up again

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

I spent quite a bit of time the last two weeks consolidating my various websites and email servers together so I’ve got a single host and more importantly, a single hosting bill! It was fairly fun to do a bit of database and web work, so I don’t get too rusty at it. And doing […]

Happy New Year

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

Well, that was a terribly long absence. Back in March I couldn’t keep up with my Game of Life due to working two jobs at once, and that got me out of my blogging habit too. But I think I’ll at least catch you all up on the major happenings this year, and then maybe […]

Seventh Week

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

94/100. I got exercise in 5.5 of the days. I find it easy on the days I’m working at that telephone place: I’m quite eager to take my break, and since I’m sitting around, stuck to the phone the whole time, I really feel like moving and go for a walk. When I’m at home […]

Sixth Week

Monday, February 25th, 2008

77/100. Oh well. I got off to a good start with exercise the first 4 days, but a bunch of midnight shifts allowed the cold I had been dodging for more than a week to finally get me, and I just didn’t have the energy after that. I’m mostly over the cold now; feeling pretty […]

Second Week

Monday, January 28th, 2008

I have to think of more imaginative titles for these posts. 99/100: a really good week; I just ran out of time on Sunday to get my daily sorting/fixing activity in. I’m still really enjoying the daily walks. When it’s warmer outside (like, just -5 or -10C) I find all sorts of creative ideas come […]

Tetris Arcade

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

I meant to post about this way back when I got it in June or so, but never got around to it. Ben and Kyla were playing it today, and I had the camera ready, so it was a perfect opportunity. I’ve wanted an arcade cabinet for a long time, and when things seemed to […]

Catch-Up

Thursday, June 21st, 2007

Lots of catch up on… Went to the Midwest Gaming Classic the weekend before last, for my 3rd time. Once again, an enjoyable drive through northern Wisconsin. And again I stopped at the loneliest Subway in the world, halfway down the inexplicable beautiful divided highway that connects Superior, Wisconsin with Eau Claire, Wisconsin. There were […]

Happy Birthday Peter (again!)

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

Happy Birthday Peter: 6 years old today. It seems to have become an annual tradition to blog about Peter’s birthday because there is usually a video game connection. For Peter’s 4th birthday we made the Super Mario Birthday Cake, and for Peter’s 5th birthday we noticed how popular the pictures of his birthday cake had […]

Happy New Year

Monday, January 1st, 2007

Happy New Year, all of you telecommunicators. We weren’t feeling 100% today, so we stayed home and had a lazy pajama day. Sorry that we missed Darren and Jenn’s party and our other friends there. Hope you guys had a good time. It’s been quite a while since I got any game programming done. I’ve […]

Happy Birthday Kyla

Monday, October 23rd, 2006

It’s amazing to think that it’s been a full year since Kyla was born. We had got up out of bed at about 2 a.m. to drive to the hospital, and only 8 hours later we were driving home with another little Harbron. The nine months of parental leave flew by; I’ve been back at […]
