Is it wrong that I'm amused by this?

Every time I drive by this sign, I giggle a little bit. I don't know why...

Easy, there, doc, you don't have to use the whole fist...

Now with new map content

Posted on 29 August 2007 by jose


Bill, husband of the aforementioned awesomest librarian Colleen, matches his wife in awesomeness: today he gifted me with a copperplate engraving of a map of Bavaria. Although difficult, because the map is circa 17th century, I was able to locate Munich, Eichstätt, and Ingolstadt. This needs to be framed and hung on my walls ASAP. To re-iterate: Bill is awesome.

It's also a nice reminder that I need to restore my Google map, after breaking its functionality to convert to Drupal. Well done me. begins to stir from its long slumber

Wordpress 2.1 came out a couple of weeks ago, so I'll be installing that here soon. I just have to get my plugins and other custom crap out of the way so that I can put it back after installation.

Home server down

Posted on 13 November 2006 by jose


So the Linux server I use to host from home is down. This is funny because I was discussing just such an occurrence with a co-worker, and when I got home, the server was dead. I suspect a faulty power supply. Or possibly an aged power supply, considering how old this server is. This means most of the little projects I had going on Pestilence (the actual server name) are on hold until I can bring it back up. First, I need to figure out the extent of the damage. I hope the motherboard and cards are OK, as replacing all of these makes no sense on a server this old.

Crossing things off

Posted on 23 June 2006 by jose

I've eliminated most of the things in my TODO list from November (yikes, that took a while). Things that are left: books page, music page, other interests page. Perhaps my song and poetry parody page. And naturally, technical issues like getting my header to work cross-platform. With my newly created TODO category, I shouldn't have to resort to kludges to remember what I still have to do. I just need to find all my posts on the subject. Why didn't I think of this earlier?!

Google Web Server Access Map

Posted on 22 June 2006 by jose

I hacked this together using Ricardo Galli's access map code and modifying it heavily for use on my site. The biggest modification was the upgrade to Google Maps API version 2, which created some minor issues with incompatibilities solved after a careful reading of the new API documentation. This is a map indicating the locations from which this site is being accessed by its visitors.

TODO: Use Drupal's PHP input format to insert map here!! (and don't forget to add it to the primary links)
