480×480
1024×1024
This is highly abstract. The title is the impression I got after seeing the final result. It is a symbol of upward motion, perhaps depicting some kind of improvement in something. I don’t really know. What do you think?
This is my first image completely generated with Photoshop. I generated noise […]

How good are you with the mouse?
How fast can you click?
How good are your reflexes?
How well do you read and click?
And last, how accurate are you?

I’ve been in a frenzy trying to sort out my art page. I went and converted it all to blog entries, with a description for each image. It’s mostly finished, just waiting for all the other pages on this site to link to it. Until then, here it is.

We have a home!
At the end of next week, we run out of time at the LeTourneau apartments. They are the married student apartments. As of tomorrow, neither of us will be students any more… so no more apartment.
It took a few days to get the approval for our application at […]

Interesting interview with Bill Gates. He has some ideas about spam, and some of them sound good. Basically, he suggests imposing some kind of cost on the sender of the email. The cost could be monetary or some kind of computation/encryption that has a time cost. It wouldn’t make spam […]

Mozilla is going independent, splitting away from AOL. AOL seems to be supporting the move, indicated by a $2 million contribution to the effort. Browser wars are returning, and that’s a good thing.

I’ve been annoyed by this one thing in Movable Type for a while. The login screen doesn’t automatically go the the username entry space. This means I have to move my mouse over there, click, and then type in my name and password. (big hassle, for sure!) It’s an easy modification […]

Over on the Utilities page, I’ve got a Common Denominator / Common Multiple finder. It’s related to the Factor utility in the mathematical theory of prime factors. It’s been popular lately, but only in its half-finished form. The new version is fully functional.

I’m baaaaack!

I’m back at Leisure Host. They made me a good offer, including a pay raise and a “promotion”. The promotion is pretty much a gimme, because I’m the only one in the IT department anyway. It will look good on a resume, though. I get to choose whatever job title I […]
