My Big Toe

Friday, November 15th, 2002

The new picture on the homepage found here is of my big toe, somewhat injured.

That’s what the bottom of a non-professionally made swimming pool will do to you when you are playing water basketball with 5 other guys :-)

Anyway, I thought I’d take a picture of it, and it came out fairly well, all things considered.

Scorpio : (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Scorpio’s follow-through is legendary. Whatever they start, they finish, and they do it very well. If you want something done quickly and skillfully, ask a Scorpio. While often enjoying their own company to that of others, when the mood strikes, Scorpios will turn on the charm, join the crowd, and bewitch everyone.

Quarter Century

It’s official: I’m getting older.

Tomorrow I turn 25, and the only positive thing I can find is that my car insurance is going to go down about $50 a year (meaning it’s still about $950 more than I can afford to pay at the moment).

I long for the days of my youth, when turning 18 (or 19, 20, and especially 21) was to be yearned for.

I’m getting older.



What Do I Know?

Todd Dominey has a really slick stylesheet switcher on his recently-restyled site (not much changed, mostly the CSS). I’m going to figure it out as my own little homework assignment for JavaScript, since I’m back to learning it again.

I’m thinking of using a stylesheet switcher on an upcoming site, and though I’ve been working with a method documented on ALA, Mr. Dominey’s approach is interesting enough to sidetrack me for a time…
