Newsflash: Blogging is getting common!

I came across this article earlier today by some guy who I don’t know about some other guys I don’t know and how the other guys blogs no longer rule the Blogosphere or something.


Little pieces of history

I am generally not a war-like guy- some might even call me a peacenik. That said, I have great respect for people who serve in the military. And I also find the “hardware” of war fascinating. Stealth bombers, laser guided missiles, ICBMs, tanks…rifles, bayonets, gas masks…swords, armour, and helmets.

A few years ago, Irene’s […]

Sasha gone…

Our cat Sasha died Wednesday just after 11:00 pm. It was pretty sudden- she was fine Wednesday morning, a little off around dinner time, and in shock by bedtime. We rushed her to the emergency vet, but they couldn’t save her. It looks like she was sick and respirated some vomit, and this was […]

Sacred and Windows XP x64

I bought Sacred by Ascaron the other day. Its a pretty good game, basically a super-sized Diablo with a huge world to run around in. There is only one problem: it doesn’t run on my computer.

Yesterday was the day Chris and I went to the Abbotsford airshow. Its one of our traditions, and one that I really enjoy. I’ve placed a ton of pictures in the album…


Chris’ visit; our trip to the lake

My friend Chris is out here on the coast visiting. We went today to Harrison Lake and rented a boat. I’m slightly sun and wind burnt, and a bit tired, but it was a hoot.

Yay for Google!

Google is supposedly about to start providing RSS feeds of their Google News headlines.

That’s great, and I guess I’ll have to switch over from using my own Google feed scraper program. Its been working pretty well for the last few months, but maintaining it has always been a bit of a pain. That […]
