Summer pictures update

I have recently posted up to the photo gallery a number of albums worth of pictures for some of the summer activities we have been up to in the last 6 weeks or so. At the start of July Kerry’s family came out for the 4th and the Provo Freedom Festival (including the Stadium of [...]

Take a hike

I couldn’t take it anymore, I had to get outside. After a long week in Dallas working at the data center (until Sunday) and it being a holiday week, I had had enough of living in the environment-controlled world of corporate buildings, I needed to breath some fresh air and deal with the heat that [...]

Moab Trip

Kerry and I just got back from an awesome (though short) vacation down to Moab, UT. What an amazing place, I can’t get enough of that red rock and sandstone formations. I refer to the canyonlands area of southern Utah/northern Arizona as ‘God’s Sandbox’ Arches, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Grand Canyon, etc… are amazing areas. If [...]

Photo Gallery Update

I wasn’t a huge fan of the old photo gallery site but hadn’t found anything worth replacing it with. That is until a few weeks ago. The new photo gallery is an open-source project called Plogger. It is a lot cleaner than Coppermine while still quite robust, powerful, and much more customizable.

Real men only…

Flowers and smelly creams? Psh, women only! Real men want soap that contains bits of broken glass and only works at water temperatures of 40 or below. Real men don’t want perfumed toilette paper.. Scottish Spring Soap for Men: Sandy Toilette Paper (for a good hard scrubbin’): Then again… ouch! I hurt just thinking about [...]

Republican Candidates Portrayed as Cartoon Characters

Rap Lyrics Plotted on Graphs (visual aids)

I found a funny post over here that is a great combination of two worlds that I’m sure have never met: Rap/Dance music & Excel charts Here’s a sampling of the funnier ones:

Christmas Pictures 2007

I have uploaded and organized a picture summary of our Christmas 2007 vacation to the east coast. Kerry was able to change her flight to head to Connecticut for a few days for her Grandfather’s funeral and then she took a train to meet me in Baltimore where we spent the rest of our vacation [...]
