Good Friday

This was the worst “Good Friday” I’ve ever had. I drove 100 miles to take two of my Microsoft Certification tests and when I got there the testing center was closed. I was in a hurry to leave town so we didn’t stop to get cash. We realized that we forgot the ATM card when we got to Dallas. To top it all off I got a speeding ticket for doing 59 in a 40. What a day…

Redesign

Here I go again, redesigning my web site. You’ll have to excuse the lack of graphics in some places. Maybe it’ll be done in the morning…

New truck

Wow, so much has happened since the last time I updated. I don’t really even know where to start…

I got a new truck, it’s a Toyota Tacoma. I’m really enjoying it. It’s a Jade Green 4×4. I’m sure I’ll never even take it off the road, but it is nice to know that I could if I wanted to.

We held our first Linux User Group meeting, the two of us who attended had a good time and learned quite a bit. I’m planning on holding another meeting on November 13. Hopefully we’ll at least double our attendance. I should also thank the good folks at Red Hat for sending me a box of stuff to give away at the next meeting.

And, I’ve been really working hard on Linux programming using GTK+. I seems a lot easier than Windows programming, but it could just be because I’ve already learned Windows programming. I’ll put up some screen-shots and code over on my Linux page as soon as I have something interesting to show.

New look

I decided to change my look a bit tonight. I found this cool font and just had to use it. The new look isn’t quite finished yet, but I thought it was close enough for now.

I’ll finish the update this weekend. E-mail me and let me know what you think.

End of the world?

Well, today was 9-9-99 and I didn’t see anyone’s computer blow up. NBC news said last night that today was supposed to be a big Year 2000 test. This whole Y2K thing seems to be getting a little out of hand.

Since my computer was still working, I thought I would go ahead and update my web pages. Let me know what you think.
