Macintosh Mockery

Apple, why do you do this to me? You tempt me with your products, and I succumb to your marketing tricks faster than a fat man who sat down too fast (to quote the great Eminem). First, the Intel MacBook Pro. God only knows how I managed to keep my credit...

Friggin spammers, part 3

Jesus. It's been like 3 days and I've gotten no less than 300 spam comments between my blog and pictures. I've been constantly updating the addcomment script with new keywords, only to get DIFFERENT spam to add new keywords. I decided there had to be a...

Friggin' spammers.

I made it pretty apparent in my [last tim.cx related post][1] that my little army of blog spammers has really started to piss me off. After implementing my comment-deleting script along with the emailing-me script, I noticed the problem is more widespread...

I didn't do

I didn't do a whole lot on Friday, if memory serves. I mostly worked on tim.cx, jackwhistle, and my new little project with camera phone stuff. Saturday, I was incredibly productive with my web projects and house cleaning and laundry and whatnot. Angie...

spammers suck.

As my 2 regular readers have noticed, I had issues with spammers on this site. Annoying, awful problems that made me want to vomit. I finally found some time to combat these issues, and my solution is below for the geeks out there who care: if...

The (literal) Agony of Defeat

It's no secret. I complain constantly about my hurt leg, the shin splints nonsense, and what I'm doing to work my way through the pain. Some massaging, some stretching, some hot baths. It helped a bit, and when I ran it only hurt for the first few hundred...

my leg is freaking killing me.

So, marathon training rolls on. I'm doing pretty well, keeping up with the schedule and getting my running time in and all that fun stuff. My left leg started hurting a bit the other day, and against my better judgement I went ahead and ran 12 miles on it....

I don't know

I don't know if I can apologize enough for lack of updates here. I've been busy with the girl, with my friends, with my house, my dog, my projects, my running. I really can't wait until this silly marathon training is done and my life can go back to normal...

Setting the goal, raising the bar.

My dad once told me that when people say they want to do something, they don't actually want to do it. They want to have done it. For example, a writer will say they want to write a book, but they don't mean that. What they mean is that they want to have...

new design

Well, the first big obstacle in my way to making tim.cx source code fully distributible has been tackled now. That is, elminating the "mess" of the code and making it rely heavily (that is, hugely heavily) on 1 style sheet. If you view the source code of...

2006 - This is my year.

Ah, ringing in the new year. A fresh start. A new beginning. Its a time to plan your goals and start your resolutions and get one step closer to being that guy or girl you want to be. My resolutions are pretty simple, really. Run a marathon, finish more...

Ouch.

Well, unofficial marathon training continues. This weekend I subjected myself to a 8 mile run, which wasn't a huge stretch over the 6.5 I did the week before. The stretch was completing the run in almost the same amount of time, improving my per-mile time...

Christmas

I had a blast all day on Christmas. I'll be honest here for a second, which is a departure for this little blog. I didn't think I'd have a good time running all over the place and seeing everyone under the moon in a day... something I haven't done since I...

Jack Pukes, Peter Mocks.

Last night was my dad's birthday celebration dinner where my mom made tacos. Jack was complaining of a sick belly, but complaining in such a way as to make us believe he just wanted to leave the table to watch TV. My sister had him eat some cottage cheese...

Unofficial Start

Well, today we unofficially started marathon training. I met a fellow runner up in the Heights to prepare for our first 8 mile run the first weekend in January. We set our goal at 6 miles. In the end, we did 6.4 miles in 1:04. That's just under ten minute...

I've resigned to

I've resigned to the fact that my life will be at a constant state of "doing stuff" until after the holidays. For a guy who hates doing stuff as much as I do, its a hard pill to swallow. I'm having fun, but I'm also really looking forward to laying on my...

secret weekend

I kicked off my secret weekend by totally nerding out for the majority of the day on Friday. I bought a new huge hard drive for my computer and got it up and running and transferred all my junk from my old drives onto it. In the process, I found a bunch of...

Turkey Day

My entire 4 day break from work for Thanksgiving was spent somewhere between 25% and 75% sick the entire time. I had a different symptom every day, it seemed. One day, I had a cough and sore throat. The next, headache and stuffed up nose. I kept myself...

Weekend

Friday night Angie and I hit the town, eating at Ned Kelly's and seeing Flightplan. Flightplan was acceptable, but nothing great. I may watch it again if its on TBS late at night and I can't sleep, but otherwise, probably not. I went to bed early, since...

Turkey Trot run

[So, I didn't do so well here][1], but I did a lot better than I expected. The 4 mile race was uphill a lot of the way, and the hill wasn't what I would call "small". The race took a lot out of me, and my legs and back are hurtin' pretty bad today. I'm...
