In which t continues to wait.

Okay, so at least one other Benin vol in the area got his staging packet yesterday. Means mailed Friday or Monday. So WTF with mine being mailed TODAY? WAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!! UPDATE: Arrived today. Yeee-haw. Also, someone from Maryland is not a Marylandian. We are Marylanders, thankyouverymuch.реклама в интернете на сайтах


Links (to be updated throughout the day)

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 SXSW Interactive. Gotta listen when I get home. The intro to yesterday’s broadcast was so...


We have liftoff.

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 get it up and running, then promptly forgot about all plans to actually learn the...


Redesign (again)

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 tomorrow. More paperwork! Score!поисковое продвижение seo


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 WordPress? Very simple, actually. If you don’t click save before closing the window, YOUR POST...


In which t gets some vitamin D

Strawberry pickin’ was awesome. Between the 10 of us, we picked about 80 lbs. Possibly a little excessive, but well worth it, I think. Turns out that daquiris made from freshly picked strawberries and top-shelf rum are amazing. I spent some time with people I don’t normally get to see, and met some new ones that I will never see again. All in all, it was a pretty perfect day.продвижение...


If things look funny, it’s b/c I’m playing with the themes on my lunch break. FYI. Update: things will look like poo until I have some free time . . . possibly on Sunday. Peace.что дает регистрация в каталогах


Still not GTD.

I am very much a creature of routine. When I’m running according to habits, I don’t forget things. Everything’s got a time and place, and that gives me the freedom to make little changes, and keep track of what’s going on. It’s a “mind like water” sort of thing. When I don’t have a routine, things tend to fall through the cracks. My way of solving that is to make...


In which t thinks about your underwear

Oh, and a thing about socks and underwear. Get a few new packs. Then, after you are in country, don’t wear all of them! Every month or on a particularly bad time, bust out a new pair. Trust me, in the Peace Corps, there is nothing like a virgin pair of socks and underwear. From the peace corps mailing list on yahoo.
