Not biking up the mountain on Johnson Avenue has really changed the experience for me. Instead of saving all the exertion for a mile or so of climbing into the heavens (where the Keathlys live), I spread it liberally along Franklin from Cedar to 3rd, and in doing so get to enjoy things like night air and the smells from the bakery about half way here. I’m even not completely dead from the experience!

Dear Media Temple, Again

I very much appreciate your peace offering of two shirts, a coffee mug, and three lanyards, but what I really want is an apology and a definition of a GPU in finite terms.

Fight Spam With Arthur

With apologies to the Tick. For a long time I spent hours a day deleting spam comments from my blog. I used to update my naughty word blacklists on a regular basis. I lost time like a blackout drunk, only without all the “oh gosh I ruined my life so maybe I’d better never delete spam again business.” These days I’m above all that.

GalleryCon 2007

I have volunteered the fair city of Minneapolis (and, to a lesser extent, the rustic and slightly off smelling but generally sincere and pleasant village of Saint Paul) as the setting for a small convention of the international open source developers who write and maintain Gallery.

University Happenings

A professor found a bomb threat on a note in Smith Hall across the street from me. Since I work on the fifth floor of Coffman, we have a unique vantage point for watching the ensuing evacuation.

I Wasn’t Kidding

No booze meant no booze. There was a scene, even. I can’t really say because I wasn’t involved, but if it would have gotten out that I was spiking Sarah’s punch with the contents of a Coleman flask, uh, well, did you see 300? Like that, only more violent.
