I managed to sprain my ankle pretty badly today. I'm still not entirely sure how it happened. My father-in-law and I were putting up crown moulding in the kitchen. I had just come in with a piece and was test fitting it only to find that I had cut it too short (for the second [...]
My friend Elton came to me with a head-scratcher today. He needs to be able to have an ASP script return an image to the browser, so that he can write an HTML page like this: <HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Sample Page</TITLE></HEAD><BODY><img src=”/getAnImage.asp”></BODY></HTML> See how the script is the target of the IMG tag?

Email comes in so infrequently now, it's like I'm not loved anymore. In the past, I was filtering spam three different ways. First, my mail server rejected mail from [...]

Since I quit my job and started focusing full-time on my ISP, I've been a busy little boy. I've nearly completed a switchover of our dial-up services to [...]
Special thanks to the folks at TUCOWS (and to Tom, for reasons that he already knows), all of my old blog entries which were previously stored here as simple archives are now in Blogware proper and searchable from the main page. A bit of cleanup to do yet — I'm going to modify some of [...]
Thanks to some interesting erosion problems, Donna decided she wanted a dry creek bed on the side of the yard. Two days of backbreaking labor, 10 bales of pinestraw, untold bags of topsoil and soil amendment, and 3,000 pounds of rock later, here it is. Happy Mothers Day, Donna!
