Hearts of Stone
The love of my life, and the woman whom I am going to marry, asked me to post this. You see, a few weeks ago, at the lake, I asked the big question, and gave her the ring.
What I wasn't expecting was to get a rock of my own in return. Whatdaya think? Two Stone Hearts, and of course, the rock I got was way, way, bigger.

Just installed the beta for Firefox 2, the (X) for 'close' is now on the tabs, not all the way to the right. Have to avoid the habit of just clicking the (X) on the right. Lost a few good tabs that way.
Just discovered that it has a built-in spell check. Sweet.
Now just waiting for a built-in HTML editor for the <textarea> tag.
Why do I need to install a Novell app to map a WebDAV folder in XP Pro!?!
Worked fine in Win2000, why can't I map it in XP?
Keep'n An Eye On Things
Monday Night to Tuesday Night:
Watched every Rocky movie ever made. Five was pretty bad, liked one through four, not sure what six will be like (yes there's a six coming).
Pretty cool, a little smarter than watching a full season of 24 in less than 24 hours. Katie's seem 'em all before, this was my first time.
All in all, fun.
Got home from Church, needed food. Made some pizza like stuff from Texas Toast and a variety of cheese. Watched 3 episodes of Feasting on Asphalt, then did a little packing. Then around 2 (in the morning), grabbed the laptop and headed off to Steak and Shake to split some onion rings and a shake while we watched the fourth and final episode of Feasting on Asphalt.
Watching a show about food at a diner - nice. Does it get better than this?
I think I may need a few beta testers for a new e-mail discussion list server and online forum merger of sorts.
Lemme know if you're interested.
What Can Brown Do?
If you're interested in video production, check out the Food Network show (on now) 'Feasting on Asphalt'. Alton Brown, who takes a different approach to food programming, has developed quite the interesting show. It has a fresh, kinda cool, look to it. 'Self handheld' shots, motorcycle helmet cams, narrative while on a bike shot from a follow car, all very cool.
And the whole feel is a very cinematic and bold.
[Yes, if you find video production techniques interesting, watch this series. If you want ideas for your next project, watch this series. If you are planning a road trip, and want to make your trip video more interesting then Uncle Ned's sideshows, watch this series.]
So if I'm checking out Google Analytics (which is very cool), and can't quite figure out how to get the data I want - I could just open that url in Gabbly, and see there's someone to ask.
I think this could be kinda useful.
Took a couple of photos of a Lake Ontario sunset, and ran 'em through autostitch to get a panoramac version. So here's the sunset - click to see the panoramic version.
Yeah, check this out.
YouOS is a web based desktop, complete with the browser I'm using right now.
It's a interesting idea. I can go to a different computer and finish up this post.
Not sure how practical it is. I'm thinking this could be great for students, just grab a computer and finish up that paper - no need to transfer the file, no need to VPN, just log on.
Time To Live?
Hmm...is it time for me to give up Trillian for the new Live Messenger?
Not sure if there's anyone on my contact list that doesn't use MSN.
I think the concept of MSN spaces is cool, but don't really see myself using that. I already have a blog. If I really wanted a photo gallery I could get one.
Can I set it up to show that my real blog (not spaces) has been updated?
(sigh) So many questions...
