  1. Dream of fridges

    I've been trying Macromedia Dreamweaver at school for the past few days, and it is pretty cool. While the WYSIWYG-created results do not produce the cleanest code, I can always manually edit that to my specifications, and it is a very useful tool to have. Unfortunately, the price tag is rather large: $399 USD!

    Our fridge stopped refrigerating things. So we'll have to repair it or get a new one. Until then, there's not much of a variety of food to eat.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving

    Happy Thanksgiving to Canadians, eh. Happy Columbus Day to Americans.

    I watched House of Sand and Fog on Saturday. It was an incredibly depressing movie, and drowning with symbolism. If you haven't seen it, don't watch it.

    Today, I watched Space's Miniseries Marathon. I didn't get up in time for V: The Miniseries, but I saw V: The Final Battle. I'm not a big V fan, but it was good. Then there was Battlestar Galactica, which I've seen one too many times. One that I can never get enough of is Frank Herbert's Children of Dune.

    I added some more quotations, bringing the total count up to 25. (But who's counting?)

About this site

I started coding websites, in bad HTML on Geocities, in 2004 in a fit of whimsy. Since then I’ve learned PHP/MySQL, coded my own blog software, and rebuilt this site several times. With the exception of the blog, it’s currently running on the exquisite Symphony CMS. This website is hosted by HawkHost
