Welcome back!


"Did you just bombard my RSS feed?"

"Yeah, probably."

"With like five posts."


"In one day."


"Welcome back."


Did you miss me?


New processes not so hot


I've been using ecto to compose my blog posts since just before SxSW. It works well in that it enables me to write easily offline, but not necessarily any better than I would write if I were using, say, emacs, my favorite editor. The problem with emacs, though, is the over developed, and often overused, left pinky, from which not only can I do one armed pull-ups, but I can also thwart the most deadly ninja assassin with a pinky flick from my left hand.

Yes, emacs is that good of a pinky trainer.

The problem with using ecto, however, is that to me, I've blogged. I wrote what I needed to write, I've managed to get the words out of my system, and I'm done. Nothing like vomiting words onto a screen and thinking, whoo, that sounds good.

I'm not sure I'll stick with ecto, as a result. I'll need to get some process down to make this easier. I know I want the automatic upload of all of my pictures to a server, which doesn't need to be Flickr, though might be. No reason why I can't add in various easy-posting features ala Vox, while I'm at it.

In that copious, illusory, fleeting and mercurial, mythical entity called "free time."

A conversation with Kitt


"What? You don't read Kitt's blog? Why not? It's like having a conversation with Kitt every day. You just don't get to see her."

Megan Smith, in Florida at Nationals.

Maybe I should have titled this post, "Megan is the bestest."

Can I blog about it?


"Heh. I approve. Can I blog about it?"

"No, no, you can't. You've blogged about it enough. Farting is, like, its own category now."

"Is that really so bad?"

Heather, just for you


Hey, Heather, I added some pages that you may miss because they were backdated to when I wrote them on my computer, not when I posted them. Here they are:

Hope the tournament was fun. Welcome home, roomie.

Writing that essay


Driving home down 101 some time last week, I head the quote on the radio,

"Never put off writing an essay when a few words will do."

I think that statement is brilliant. I have so many notes to myself to write this or that great grandios post or essay, each guaranteed to take at least an hour or two to write. Notes to write works that are never written. Sometimes the moment is lost. Sometimes the task is overwhelmining.

Worse, sometimes a few words will do, and they don't get written.

I don't want a link blog. I like the ones I read, but don't want to be another "me, too" link site (well, not until I get the mirroring/caching module written, anyway) with stale 404 links. Ugh.
