The book: progress reportblogging, hi

by Meredith Farkas on 12/28/2005 with 6 comments

Writing is going well in terms of quantity. I’m nearly halfway done in terms of words written, which I can hardly believe myself. However, given my ineptitude when it comes to citing sources properly, I will definitely have a lot of post-writing work to do. I also haven’t given a thought to what figures and …

Delta Gorran 1990-2005hi

by Meredith Farkas on 12/21/2005 with 21 comments

My dog, Delta, died on Monday. She’d had heart problems for some time, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at her. And she certainly never knew she was sick, energetic as she was. When it came to food, she would run and jump like a puppy. I guess that’s why it’s so hard for …

Happy Turkey Day!hi

I’m in South Florida to visit family and go to my 10-year high school reunion. The latter event ought to be quite the trip. I was a little… umm…. different back then. Yeah, and that wasn’t even for halloween. I was quite the geek back then. Maybe I haven’t changed so much… I’ll be back …

My new love affairhi, random

by Meredith Farkas on 1/4/2005 with 0 comment

I decided to stop agonizing over what sort of computer to buy and finally settled on the Sony A-250 I’d developed a major crush on. I couldn’t deny the fact that it had everything I was looking for, and, when I saw that there were some major rebates offered on it now at a local …

Site redesignhi, random

by Meredith Farkas on 1/3/2005 with 1 comment

I just spent much of the day redesigning my site. The first time I designed my site, I was in school and my time was at a premium. I know it still needs work, but I’m pretty happy with how it came out — definitely better than before. Let me know what you think.

Laptop hunthi, random

by Meredith Farkas on 1/3/2005 with 0 comment

Since I may be moving to a very tiny apartment in Chicago soon, I thought it best to trade in my old desktop for a swanky new laptop (the CPU is just a bit to heavy to put on my lap). I haven’t been in the market for a laptop since 1998, so I’ve been …

Happy New Year!hi

Sorry I didn’t have time to post anything today (been working on cover letters ALL day) but I wanted to wish everyone a happy and safe New Year. I’m just spending New Year’s with family tonight. With all that’s happened in the world over the past week, I’d rather just be around loved ones than …

What we have…hi, random

I don’t know what I could say that hasn’t already been said about the disaster in southeast Asia on Sunday. It is a tragedy beyond my comprehension — easily the worst thing that has ever happened in my lifetime. So many tens of thousands of people of all ages and from all walks of life… …

Jury dutyhi

by Meredith Farkas on 11/30/2004 with 1 comment

I’ve got jury duty tomorrow (and hopefully ONLY tomorrow), so I may not have time to post anything. I would really like to be on a jury as I never have been before, but I’m a bit nervous because I have a job interview on Friday that I can’t afford to miss. I’ll let you …

Ah but California…hi, random

by Meredith Farkas on 11/23/2004 with 1 comment

My hubby and I got married in the Napa Valley about 4 months ago and spent our honeymoon travelling around the CA coast. My dream is to live out there, but hubby says it’s unrealistic (considering housing costs, distance from our families, and all that). Sometimes I even start thinking that maybe I’m just romanticizing …

Grrrrr…hi, our digital future

by Meredith Farkas on 11/17/2004 with 0 comment

Our servers were down for almost seven hours today. This is really unprecedented. At first I thought I’d somehow caused it, but fortunately (or not) it was not my fault. Apparently the DOT cut some fiber optic lines right near where the servers were housed, making the fact that ServInt has redundant pathways to the …

Welcome to my new and improved blog. I’d really wanted to keep the old one, but alas, I had to upgrade and am far too lazy to move my old posts over. I promise to replace them right away with new and exciting links and commentary. I was really disturbed by this story out of …
