Ugh, Stuck Again

December 30, 2006

So we were driving down the I-5 this afternoon, heading home, when the clutch cable on my car broke. Got it towed to a mechanic who was still open and is also open tomorrow. He didn’t have the part and the only parts place open at the time didn’t either. He’s gonna call a couple […]


Last Day in Eugene

December 29, 2006

I’m currently sitting in dad’s dining room with Megan, Matt, Kim and dad. Megs is playing Warcraft 3, Kim is playing Puzzle Pirates, Matt is eating French bread, and dad is finishing up dinner. We’re having burritos in ten minutes. =) It’s been really great to visit with everyone up here, but tomorrow Megs and […]


Up in Portland

December 27, 2006

As the headline says, Megs and I are currently up in Portland. I really don’t like this keyboard much, so I’m going to be brief. Perhaps next time I’ll just take the laptop to Starbucks or something. Anyways, it’s been nice seeing everyone up here in Portland and down in Eugene. We should be heading […]


On Our Way

December 23, 2006

As you can see by the timestamp on this post, it’s ass-early out. Megs and I are all packed, showered, dressed, and ready to go, so as soon as I get a quick snack of some oatmeal and tea we start driving north. Isis is freaking out right now, which is not terribly out of […]


Why Not to Upgrade

December 22, 2006

Here’s a detailed paper on why not to “upgrade” to Windows Vista and why it’s still gonna suck even if you don’t. I read the entire thing and it made me sad. In happier news, tomorrow we head off to Oregon! Yay!


No Jury Duty for Megs

December 21, 2006

The headline says it all, really. After a week of being on call for jury duty, it turns out they will not be requiring her services. She is free and clear for a year, and our Christmas plans are a go! These plans are as follows: Saturday we drive up to Springfield and stay the […]


Site Changes (again)

December 19, 2006

So, once again I futz with the site design here a bit. I went back to the default WordPress look, mostly cuz I never really liked the one I was using. Also, it’s more compatible with various plug-ins I wanna use. Also… It’s back! ChrisWeb Forums are back with a vengeance! All the old posts […]

Hacking Hollywood

December 8, 2006

I came across a recent posting on Slashdot listing a few things that provided me with some amusement. We’ve got the Top 20 Movie Hackers, the Top 10 Movie Servers, Things Code Doesn’t Do in Real Life, and the classic Guidelines to Development on the Hollywood Operating System. In other news, Matt (brother) will be […]


Wish List posted

December 7, 2006

Mom emailed me this morning asking if I had a Christmas wish list, so I put one together here on the site for any who are curious. It’s over there in the sidebar to the left, or just click on this handy link here. I will probably add to it over the next couple weeks, […]
