Got an email from Mom today saying she’d like to see a new entry… parents can be so demanding! 😉

DJ and i ordered a bunch of tuning parts for our mini RC cars, and they arrived yesterday, so i spent my evening working on a 2″ car (for a change). It’s so fast now! I have a bunch of pics i’ll throw up this weekend, if i get a chance. I’m really behind on the pic posting, apologies for that.

Picked up John at the naval station in everett yesterday morning, he appears to have survived his tour at sea, despite the general incompetence of a large number of his shipmates. Welcome back, man, and thanx for breakfast! He has a few weeks at home before it’s back-on-the-boat, so we’re going to try and make the most of it. Translation: we’re going to do some stuff to his car. 😉

I’m not in the habit of quoting someone else’s content, but i though this was funny and annoyingly true:

    The NEW open-source software business model:

      1) Write free stuff.

      2) ???

      3) Sell tech support to your family.

      4) Profit!

    As opposed to the previous open-source business model:

      1) Write free stuff.

      2) ???

      3) Get supported by your family.

      4) Profit!

So does this mean i’m adapting to the times? 😉 Speaking of the times, i’m finally going to join the world of high-tech mobile phone users… ordered a new wireless handset yesterday, a nokia 7210. At last, ringtones that i choose and a model series that hasn’t been discontinued! I’m feeling very high-tech and geekish, super excited for that to get here.

Working late tonite on a side project with a woman at work, a web site for the ceo. I get paid overtime for it, so i don’t mind doing it, but it has been a bit disorganized and that frustrates me, plus i’m just not very artistically inspired to make a website about someone else’s high school class reunion. I’ve been struggling with visual content, that and it’s supposed to talk with an access database and i royally despise micro$oft access in all its forms, not real jacked about getting that to work. Ugh. But i get paid for it. And i guess there’s about a million worse things i could be doing for money. (Ahem. Adjusting insurance claims!)
