Busy at work, busy at home.
So why not explore the world of standards-compliant web design? Or compare a contemporary jab at consulting with this classic (by web standards) one. Or root around in the mucky ends of the internet? All mucho big-time fun, I promise.

Classic Surfing

Like about a million other bloggers, I read Boing Boing. I was greatly amused by this yesterday. Today, they directed me over here, which is also rather funny. That site led me to peruse the ol’ blogroll, and since my wife edited a book about wooly mammoths, The American Mastodon caught my [...]

It’s a bird … it’s a plane … it’s …

SUPERDAWG! Passing on advice for a friend heading out to Chicago, I made sure to recommend my all-time favorite hot dog joint. This, in turn, got me all wistful for the past. Just shy of 10 years ago, I left UConn to attend Northwestern University (back when it was still “”) for [...]
