First Gallery 
Saturday, 26 June, 2004, 04:00
Okay, so I've stuck the first gallery of pictures onto the pics page. I'll be adding more as I go along, which should be pretty easy given the script I'm using. It's actually very short, and is w3c compliant (after some slight modifications, of course), which means it should display the same way on all Web browsers.

Things have been somewhat busy lately. We finished an order for 82 systems on Tuesday so I got Wednesday off. Julie and I went to her local Honda and Toyota dealerships. I kind of liked the Honda Element, but the Scion tC (which we saw at the Toyota dealership) was uber-sweet. It may not have a ton of horsepower, and it may be wrong-wheel drive, but it's one sweet vehicle for the money. The Scion xA was also a cute little car ... I found myself looking for a place to stick the wind-up key.

I got accepted to UIC's business school. That is totally sweet. The Student Access System is horribly confused, though; I can't register for MBA courses. I'll just have to pester the appropriate departments until I get my way ;-)

Two alternate stylesheets are in the works. You can switch between 'em if you have a browser capable of such behavior ...

Harry Potter 
Tuesday, 8 June, 2004, 04:00
I gotta say, the new Harry Potter movie left me with some mixed feelings. I saw it at the Woodridge IMAX theater with Julie, her sister, her brother, and her brother's friend yesterday. Yes, it was a good movie, but you can definitely tell that a different director was involved. Furthermore, I think Ian McKellen would have made a better Dumbledore than Michael Gambon, simply because he kicked royal ass as Gandalf in the LOTR movies :-)

The river is no longer a threat.

Well, the threat of the river entering the freakin' house is gone. The City is sending trucks and Bobcats to remove sandbags. Pretty nice of them.

I'm sitting at work right now. It's kind of slow at the moment. We're waiting for seven Pentium 4 2.8E processors to arrive so we can build the last seven workstations of a 20-system order. Pretty spiffy. No further updates at the moment ...

Sandbagging 
Tuesday, 25 May, 2004, 05:43
I just realized that the date on my last news entry was wrong, so I changed it.

Jeff, Bob, and Julie were over here yesterday to fill sandbags and move stuff up from the basement. We got a lot of stuff done, but the house still needs more sandbags. At this moment, the river is at 6.92 feet, with roughly 4.5 feet left until it crests on Thursday. The good news is that it already crested in Russell, on the Illinois/Wisconsin border ... the bad news is that it crested 0.65 feet above what the National Weather Service forecasted. And, it's goling to rain soon. Bummer. We're FREAKING HOSED.
