Fun with Vista

As a web developer I can't tell you how much fun it is when a new operating system comes out. I've spent most of the day today, yup it's Sunday, playing... aka fighting with IE 7.0 and Vista. For the most part the project I'm working on works fine, but every once in awhile a new "feature" rears it head and makes things interesting. Course if it was always easy, I wouldn't love it so much.

Heading back toward the top of the hill. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can... .

Democratic Debate

Tonight the democratic candidates will debate on the issues facing this country. Regardless of what side you're on, I would suggest that everyone watch both the debates (Republican's will be on Tuesday). One of these candidates could very well be our next president so I for one definitely want to know where they stand on the issues. I'm watching CNN, but it may be shown on other channels... though I didn't see one.

On a side note: Happy Birthday AC!

Chicago's children

I'm currently watching my DVR (recording of last night's AC 360 on CNN) while getting this all set up. Anderson is being tested on the spelling of the word "Serrefine". He guessed it the way I would... we were both wrong.

I'm amazed at what's happening in Chicago right now, it's insane, but I'm glad that CNN is bringing such an important story to light. For those that didn't see it, so far 28 school age kids have been murdered this school year. My heart goes out to the families effected by these senseless acts of violence, both in Chicago and throughout the rest of the country. Our children need help, encouragement and guidance... and in my opinion less time on their hands. Idle time and boredom is a big reason kids go searching. Helping and encouraging them to find positive ways to spend their time will go a long way in keeping kids out of trouble.


Hey there! The enivatable first post! Must say it's a bit daunting facing this empty box, but here goes. Generally I'll post about things that are going on both in my own little world and the world outside. Whether you agree or disagree with me, I'd love to hear from you. I'm always interested in other points of view. I hope you enjoy looking around.
