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 [...]
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.
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 [...]
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.

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 [...]
I see some interesting wildlife outside my office window, but this one had me running for the camera!
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 [...]Next Entries »
