  • Donning My Birthday Suit

    April 4, 2006

    Well, tomorrow is my birthday, so there are quite a few very special things happening: If you stay up late/early, be sure to dance a jig just after one a.m., when it hits 1:02:03 04-05-06. That should be pretty cool. (Thanks Joy) I celebrate my 29th birthday tomorrow. (Please send your love in Guitar Center... Read More

  • Too Much To Say

    February 14, 2006

    Today was the first Valentine’s Day that I woke up with a woman in my bed. And that’s not even the best part. We had an aluminum-foil-ball fight today! She led me on a treasure hunt that ended with steak and we’ve got a secret getaway planned for this weekend. Last year, we spent the... Read More

  • Cardboard White

    January 30, 2006

    CARDBOARDWHITE.COM After mulling over the fact that finding new posts on a friend’s blog is a little like remembering to brush, I’ve put together a site that brings together all of the most recent posts from the stoop group using RSS feeds. If you find it useful, I’ll add functionality like remembering which view you... Read More


    December 14, 2005

    Yep. You can now get to my photoblog a bit more easily… Any old links should work, since i’ve done a bit of mod_rewrite gymnastics in my .htaccess; so if you’ve got some ancient bookmark to an old photo, it should all still work. Cheers! Oh, one more thing… people keep telling me they’re... Read More

  • The Reason For Silence

    November 22, 2005

    Ok, so I haven’t posted in a while (the 6th I think?) that much is true. But there’s a reason why (always is, isn’t there?) I’ve been silent.

  • Jesse Needs…

    October 24, 2005

    Saw this on Angela’s site (Angela needs therapy!) and thought I’d give it a whirl. Here are the top 10 20 “Jesse needs” on Google: Jesse needs some reading spectacles. Jesse needs to release a true autobiography. Jesse needs an award–I don’t know what, but something for sure. Jesse needs a forever home that will... Read More

  • Movable Type Turns 4

    October 8, 2005

    Happy Birthday Movable Type! One of the most powerful and well-supported content management systems turns four years old today, and we have a host of people to thank for it, not the least of which are Ben and Mena Trott, the founders of the MT engine and Six Apart.

  • PlasticMario

    September 5, 2005

    Did you ever notice that the more you learn, the more you realize how little you used to know? I’ve been having that experience often with my websites, and anyone who knows anything about webdesign or even knows how to view the source of a page knew that my old blog was atrocious. Vestigal Dreamweaver... Read More

  • You Know You Want To Comment

    August 30, 2005

    Sorry about that. I just updated my blog to MT 3.2 and in the process shuffled some of my blog around. In the shuffle, I broke the ability to comment. No wonder it’s been quiet around here. Next time my site is broken, please, let me know. A web designer having a broken site is... Read More

  • Email Notification Issue

    July 29, 2005

    The move to Plasticmind hosting was fairly smooth, but it seems as though the email notification list didn’t fare as well. I tried to reimport all the addresses correctly, but you may be either getting email you don’t want or not getting notified and you want to. If you’re getting an email notification and don’t...

  • Merging Into Traffic

    July 21, 2005

    Our DSL pack came from Verizon today and I just couldn’t wait to tear it open and get online. No more sitting in the ripe email lounge at PBU smelling old wet carpet without the ability to right-click-save an image or upload files. Now I can bum around in my Fantastic Four t-shirt after an...
