OK - the screenshots and commentary from the April Gib-O-Rama are HERE.
I've been neglecting this site again. Twenty days between updates - sad. A lot of my on-line energy has gone into the Gib-O-Rama website. A few of you may not know - I'm webmaster over there. ...and I'm still trying to be an average Quake player...so there's a few hours a week down the tubes. ...sigh..... HELLO! What do you want to hear? I'm going to use this site as an on-line photo album as just about everyone seems to be doing these days. But, I'd like it to be something more. I feel like I've got some un-taped creative energy somewhere screaming to get out. I've looked at MacroMedia Flash. It's a web page authoring tool that can create some really stunning sites - like here and here and here. After seeing some of those - it's inspiring. ...if I can ever find the time.
Jacqui and I are going to Frankfurt, Germany soon. Another pseudo Business/Pleasure trip. ...actually sometimes it feels like more of a hassle than it's worth....ya ya Germany - big castles, old cities, dark warm beer. Work has been busy lately so I've had less time to goof-off.
Oh - almost forgot - I haven't even posted (or looked at) the screenshots I took from the Tax Day Gib-O-Rama....guess that's what I'll try and do later - and play with some Flash programming if I get really motivated.
This past Saturday, on April fools day (how appropriate) Jacqui, Julie, Micci, Ken and I ran a 5K (3.1 mile) race through the Upper Kirby district of Houston. It was actually a lot of fun! The race started at 8:00am and it looked like we were going to get rained on - but the weather cooperated and we stayed dry. After the race they had an outside area with a band - and free food and BEER. I was kinda surprised to see that actually, providing a keg after the race - but evidently some runners swear by it (sure, why not?). Ken finished in about 23 minutes, I came in at about 29 minutes, Jacqui in 32, Julie in 34 and Micci in about 40 minutes. Actually, Micci was sick that day - so she did especially well all things considered. Congratulations everyone - we all made it without walking!
