Moving on…

1504 days ago

If I could figure out how to redirect a dynamic page on this Textpattern install, I would have long taken this site down, but there are a few pages that receive enough traffic that I want to keep them around.

Either way, my blogging has moved over to where my wife and I have been trying to update it semi-frequently.

290 days, really?

1998 days ago

That’s a long time between posts. I’ve been thinking about re-doing my site and hopefully updating it more frequently, but it might include nerdier posts about games I play, or stuff that no one’s interested in. But I wonder if anyone would mind, you can always opt not to read, right? That is, if anyone is even still subscribed here. =)

Any thoughts on what I should do with my site? I’d like to come up with something. And now that I’m not a full-time web developer, I feel more inclined to work on personal web projects. I could use some suggestions! What would you like to see?

He Films the Clouds, Pt. 2

Now we’re apart.
Though not through choice.
Do we stay mute?
Or raise our voice?

Simple lyrics to an utterly beautiful song by a band called Maybeshewill. (Almost all their music is great.)

Summer So Far

2296 days ago

This won’t be a long post, I haven’t felt like posting lately, but this summer has been interesting. I moved out to Tacoma, WA for a job, two buddies came with me, one has since returned home, the other remains.

I’ve been able to go camping twice so far on the Pacific, and both times it’s been super fun. Also had a nice couple of weeks at home before I left. Check out some pictures on my Flickr account.

And here’s an animated GIF I made while at the Grand Mere dunes with my dad:
