Awesome awesome awesome couple of days. Saying good-bye is poo, but that’s the way it goes. Yesterday was Pride Day 2005 in DC, which culminated in an enormous demonstration at DuPont Circle. A friend and I were eating at Kramerbooks, and we were priviledged enough to see the entire thing. Good times. Lots of half-naked… Read More In which t eats a crab quesadilla.
My car only had to last until July 5th, dammit. Dad and I replaced the master cylinder today (that’s part of the braking system, for those not forced to constantly repair their cars :)). It took all day, and I got none of the crap I needed to finish done. Dammit. On the plus side,… Read More In which t fixes her car. Again.
Does everybody like this blog-as-PIM thing I’ve got goin’ on? The idea is that each morning when I hit it up, I’ll see what’s been done, what needs to be done, and what I need to start panicking about. So stop makin’ fun of me, yo! I hate you, stupid Radio Shack man. After talking… Read More blog-as-PIM

The Social Science Research Council has put togehter a wiki on the politics of F/OSS. I’ve only been able to flip through it, but so far, I’m really enjoying it. Anything that lets me combine my love for geekery with my love for policy is clearly a Good Thing. Audio of the closing keynote for… Read More Links (to be updated throughout the day)
Sweet mother of God, comments work. I switched over to WordPress from Blogger last November because I wanted to do some ususual stuff with the Bitter Club. Blogger was also pretty unreliable at the time. Fine for a personal site, not so fine when I’m running a group thang. I kluged together a template to… Read More We have liftoff.
Isn’t this look nicer? Comments still don’t work. I think one of my tweaks is (unintentionally) affecting the template system. I’m not particularly pressed about it. I’ll work out some of the bugs tomorrow during my lunch break, and then everyone can tell me how much they like it. Also, my staging packet should arrive… Read More Redesign (again)
Podcast by a PCV in Malawi on HIV/AIDS. Blogging it so I remember to listen when I home from work. :) WordPress keeps eating my posts. I have a sneaking suspicion that the problem is actually one of operator error. How could I, brilliant QA analyst (haha!) and technical writer that I am, mess up… Read More
