Cable outage is over (all morning , finally back on at around 1pm)
Actually, it was the clever-ness of my son Brian, who thought up the scheme of forming the roman numeral for 48, for my 48th bithday last Saturday, the 22nd.
I turned 48 yesterday. We picked up some baseball pictures for Kelli at her game, which I have proudly displayed here. Mom and Dad took us out to Applebee’s (my choice)…..and then Brian and I watched the Reds Astros thriller of a game on MLB.TV, although we had to watch the replay because MLB.com considered the game to be in Continue Reading
in my dotText blog , back in the beginning of it (Nov. 2003), I was wondering why MT trackbacks weren’t being seen. I blogged a link to somebody on weblogs.asp.net , and the trackback worked there (on that dotText blog!). so here’s another try, since I’ve moved the blog to a subdomain dedicated to it at http://blogs.theoblogical.org/blog. The post , Continue Reading
I just returned a while ago from the Coffeeshop down the road a bit (Perk Central) where I spent about 2 hours sitting on the comfy leather couch and sipping a cup of coffee, and having one thing after another occur to me that seemed noteworthy, so I wrote down some things, and then some more, and when I was Continue Reading
A 13-year old was suspended for 3 days from school for trying a DOS command (built into the system) to send a 1-word message (consisting of “Hey!”) to all the computers on his school’s network. A Computer instructor at his school , Mrs. Sweeney, called it “hacking” and apprently convinced the principle that an example should be made. In a Continue Reading
From Emergent Report’s list of Emerging technologies for 2003: Overblown Technology of 2003: WMD Upside: We have them. Downside: So does everyone else except apparently IRAQ.
Continued from my previous post, picking up where I left off with the “historical/Kairos convergence” of my journey and history with Old Saint George.
I can hardly begin the blogging of 2003. It seems so intimidating. There were scary times when I went through a second prostate biopsy in 18 months (in March , after the one in September 2001), disapppointments , like not landing a job I thought I might be getting, and then continued to draw blanks in the search for work. Continue Reading
At ethicsdaily.com, more response to the SBC’s move to sever ties with the Baptist World Alliance. from the above link: Robert Parham: The decision represents more evidence that Baptist fundamentalists are retreating to a 19th century castle of racial and cultural homogeneity
In a couple of posts today on Theoblogical.Net , I lament a futher sign of the SBC becoming an “island to itself” , moving further from its heyday as a community of diversity. Of course, as the posts suggests, this (“diversity”) is anathema to them, and precisely what they can’t seem to handle, and taking further steps every year to Continue Reading
On my .Net blog, I found the reason for WIRED’s “tardiness” these past couple of months
Last month, the issue did not arrive until the 17th, about 10 days late. It looks like the January issue won’t be here until at least that late. It’s not even up on the Website yet, whichstill shows the Phillip K. Dick/December issue. I was wondering whatmight be going on.
On my Theoblogical.Net blog, I have added a couple of posts, one on the Physical/Virtual dual-activity of Old Saint George, and one on a NYTimes article about an online interaction student/writer (connected selves)
Ijust got back from Perk Central, where I often go to unwind, or sit and think, or in this instance, after browsing a bit on my PDA, I heard the familiar sound from WS_FTP finishing an upload, and so I looked up and said “Sounds like WS_FTP”, and struck up a conversation with Michael Ashby , who has a nice Continue Reading
