A little update

Entering Cape Cod via the Bourne Bridge, July 2007 So, I’ve taken a little break from the blog yet again; sometimes I get into moods where I just don’t feel like writing. I have been in such a mood the last few weeks. Last weekend, I spent some time on Cape Cod with my family; […]


So, while at work today, I received an invitation to try out Ravelry, a social network/organizer for people who knit and crochet. I’d been waiting for my request for about a month; I requested an invitation a few days behind (as always, I’m fashionably late), so I didn’t expect an invitation until it opened to […]

Safari for Windows

Yesterday, when I returned home from work, I discovered something I had hoped would happen for the longest time; Apple released a version of Safari for Windows. I’ve used Safari on the Mac a few times a few years ago when I worked for IU in the computer labs; I liked the interface, and I […]

Green Linen Shirt

Today I got an awesome shirt from Scott: I’m such a dork. In other news, Krissy and Mike will be here tomorrow! I can’t wait to see them again!

EXIF data

I’ve owned my own digital camera now for close to five years. For the majority of the past five years, I snap photos, save them on my card for a bit, then download all the images on the card to my computer. I always, always save my pictures in .psd format at a high resolution […]

A new beginning…

So, here I am, yet again, starting from scratch with a newish weblog. I’m going to focus a lot more on what I do in my spare time here; I’ve been a knitter for four years this month, I occasionally dabble in scrapbooking, and I spend a lot of evenings playing World of Warcraft. We’ve […]

Blogging from Word: take two

So, Scott and I went ahead and downloaded copies of Office 2007 Beta 2, and of course, I wanted to try out Word’s new blogging feature to see how it works. I doubt I’ll use it as my main blog editor, but hey, it’s nifty just the same! So far, the new version of Word […]

Goin’ pro, baby!

After much thought, I’ve gone ahead and purchased a Flickr Pro account! I’ve refrained from buying one as long as my photo count remained below 200, but now that I’ve filled the free account capacity to its fullest, it’s time to move up to the next tier. I’m looking forward to playing with more sets […]

Flickr, Feedburner, and RSS annoyances

(Bear in mind that I cannot formulate complete sentences today.) I’m completely and utterly baffled as to how I should go about posting entries with pictures from Flickr. If anyone reads this site via RSS and is subscribed to my Feedburner feed, then when I post pictures to Flickr and then post those same pictures […]
