Posted by & filed under Front Page, Tech.

I said that I would post some of the data that I gathered via my tomato firmware that I installed one month ago. Here are some pretty graphs. So far it looks like I run at a total of about 21 – 22 GB of data up and down per month. I think that I… Read more »

Google Reader is a great RSS reader. In addition to providing a great central location for reading my feeds it also allows me to, easily, share interesting feeds with other people that are using Google Reader.

Update on My MCTS

Posted by & filed under .Net, Certification, Front Page, Microsoft, Tech.

Summary I have completed reading the “MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-536): Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0–Application Development Foundation”.

Fortunately I found a reference for how to fix it on the internet. The basic idea is that you need… Read more »

Mary Gets Baptized

Posted by & filed under Baby, Front Page, Mary, Personal.

Warning: this post could be considered PG. Mary got baptized yesterday. We got her up, and due to the hot weather (It has been 90+ for the past few days, and us without air conditioning) we decided to let her laze around in the morning in her robe. She played and smiled for a few… Read more »

Progress Report

Posted by & filed under Baby, Front Page, Mary, Personal.

Alright everyone! I know, I haven’t posted in, like…, forever. We have been very busy listening to the sweet, sweet music of our little Mary screaming all night long. In fact, Saturday night was the first night that she slept through the night. Mom has cut dairy products and green leafy, gas producing, vegetables out… Read more »
