The only three numbers in computer science that matter: 0, 1, and infinity. As far as my life goes, I can't do everything, so I need to choose what one thing I'm going to devote my time to, or I'll end up with nothing.read more

I've been playing with a bunch of wireless stuff recently, and I've found out it rocks. I have a Lucent Orinoco (WaveLan) card that works beautifully under both Win2k and Linux; and I have a Raylink card on the way as well. I've set up an 802.11b network in …read more
wow. i've had an ibm 390e for about a month and a half now, and it rules. I can do all sorts of wireless stuff now that I couldn't before, and it's pretty kewl for portable transport as well.read more

phpAIM (AIM is (tm) AOL)
This is what I wrote to my SourceForge account about the development of phpAIM (AIM is (tm) AOL).

windows virus vulnerability
ahh - sleep!
I feel much better today. Went running around with Dennis today, and got a compact flash reader and 350va APC Back-UPS for $30 each! Not a bad deal, I though. Of course, I'm staying up way to late tonight, and It's gonna ruin my whole week, so I best get …read more
What a messed up tragedy. Knocking out the world trade centers with our own commercial jetliners. To quote my good friend [Brady],
" good night to look out at the night sky. prolly the last time in our lifetimes that there will be no planes..."

Despite having renewed hope in wireless networking between [Brady]'s, [Dennis]'s, and my houses after finding pretty cheap 2.4GHz Antennas, [Brady] and I were spoiled once again by distance and LoS (Line of Sight) factors. If we could just see each other's houses...read more
Hmm.. really getting interested in the Kodak DX3500 camera. It seems like a pretty decent deal.
Gotta finish shopping for Tiff soon, too ;-)read more
You know, I really think PHP could be a really good scripting language, but there are definitely some things holding it back.
For one, there is no support for SIGnals from the OS. Things like SIGKILL and SIGHUP. These would be really useful. I love PHP's native database support and …read more
