The Virtual Dead Drop

Saturday, April 29th, 2006

I’m fascinated by spy stuff. Dead drops, microfilm dots, tiny cameras, and that kind of stuff fascinate me. I think it stems from my interest in codes, ciphers, and other forms of secret writing. Every time I hear a story about a spy getting caught, I read it, mostly for my interest in the technical [...]

Monopoly Here and Now

Monday, April 24th, 2006

Leigh Ann writes that Hasbro is updating Monopoly, replacing Baltic Avenue and the other streets from Atlantic City with twenty two famous landmarks from around the nation. Visit Hasbro’s Monopoly site and vote, or just look at the landmarks that Hasbro chose for the voting.
I was surprised at some of the choices. For example, start [...]

Second Podcast

Monday, April 17th, 2006

Here’s another podcast for you. I decided to move outdoors to make this recording. As Jerry noticed, my room here is just too live — it sounds like I’m recording in an echo chamber. What I don’t like about tonight’s podcast is the way the volume fluctuates as I look around at things in the [...]

Homeward Bound

Saturday, April 15th, 2006

I’m sitting in the Birmingham airport waiting for my flight home to board. This morning Dad and I met Jennifer and Leigh Ann for a breakfast buffet at B&J’s restauraunt (where Catfish Haven used to be), then Leigh Ann, Jennifer and I went to Hartselle to do some antique/junk shopping. After lunch at a Mexican [...]

Along Came a Spider Who Scored 18 Runs on the Brewer Patriots

Friday, April 14th, 2006

Brewer High School baseball tonight. Poor kids – they tried hard, but gave up a bunch of runs and ended up getting beat 16-1. Chris pitched, but didn’t last long. He later scored the Patriots’ only run.
When Leigh Ann and I came back to Daddy’s house, I happened to notice this big ol’ spider loitering [...]

My Attic Runneth Over

Friday, April 14th, 2006

Robert Nagle posts a screenshot of his WordPress admin page showing all his unfinished draft posts. Me too:

I don’t have as many, but then I haven’t been accumulating them as long. Every now and then I go in and delete the posts I know I’m just never going to get around to finishing, and the [...]
