  • I feel bad for turning the little CreuzMonster out of the library, but I gotta get some work done! #
  • Man the evenings are short! Took me three nights to get the neighbors windows re-trimmed. Kept running out of light. Its done now. #
  • I have a new rule. I will NOT work on php code where the php warnings and errors are not somehow visible to me. #LIVE amp;LEARN #
  • Success. I have a contact form that sends an email! I don’t think this small win is worth the frustration of working blind though. #WINNING #
  • PHP oddness: If you are getting a blank page and no errors in the error log, try clearing the APC cache. It can cache dumbness? #NeedDrink #
  • PHP APC cache Tip: If you are doing a CMS upgrade and use CLI mv to put new files over old, clear the APC cache. It won’t detect the change. #
  • A 233mhz 32mb ram computer that won’t boot because the hard drive is full is a difficult box to fix. Nothing modern will boot on it! #
  • MoBo from one works while drives from the other does. Cabled across so I can boot from a Live Cd. #dualcpu http://twitpic.com/6wnihf #
  • Jeebers that lambo is low to the ground. http://twitpic.com/6x1ezu http://twitpic.com/6x1fe8 #
  • Listening to the wife’s family practice. They sound really good. Kinda cool to sit at the sound board of a studio to watch a band. #
  • How bizarre, I woke up from a nap with nobody else around & my phone’s time skating forward 10-30 minutes every time I looked #twilightzone #
  • I was just asked for directions. I have long pants and wool socks on – I am obviosly not a local. I still gave them. Love my phone. #
  • Bella playing with her cousin’s transformer makes me happy. She’s ‘better’ at them than her uncle Pat. http://twitpic.com/72crvk #
  • That had to be a fun ride. A double trailer Fed-Ex truck did a 180 on the highway. I didn’t see any other cars involved. #
  • I don’t think I want to ever fly again. My ears don’t hurt anymore, but I can’t hear much. Hopefully it will be better in the morning. #
  • So nice to be home! The house is the perfect sleeping temp too! 49 degrees. #
  • I love my job… I get to make the coolest things. Like a web page that prints to a label printer… from an ipad! How cool is that? #
  • For all those web developer types out there… http://LookupTables.com Lookup Tables dot com – An awesome, no nonsense resource. #
  • It’s a bit cool to paint, but I am running out of snow free days. The barn and shed are both red. http://twitpic.com/74a1lh http://twitpic.com/74a1ru #
  • Just watched a car loose a tire at 70mph. Lotsa smoke. #
  • Anybody want to make a guess as to what I am building in my garage now? @michalsen you can’t guess as you oughta know. http://twitpic.com/74to5p #
  • Does this help anybody guess what I am making? It is half done at this point. http://twitpic.com/74upbu http://twitpic.com/74upi5 #
  • I made a small rocket mass heater to test out my new rocket mass forge concept. The bricks aren’t tight fitting enough. http://twitpic.com/74wqta #
  • Talk about being forgetful… I left a bag of hardware at the checkout tonight at home depot. They still have it. Gonna get it tomorrow. #
  • I had to make a saw jig in order to get this complex corner cut. More to do! http://twitpic.com/75fmd5 http://twitpic.com/75fmlz http://twitpic.com/75fmuc #
  • Does anybody local to me (Elgin IL) have an electric miterbox I can borrow Tuesday night? I have over 100 30 degree cuts to make in 2x6s. #
  • Here you can see the ‘spoke’ design for the picnic table. This is why the cuts are so complex. http://twitpic.com/75g6mi http://twitpic.com/75g6od #
  • Here’s the other saw jig I made to finish this corner cut for the spokes of a hexagon shaped table http://twitpic.com/75kcln http://twitpic.com/75kcp2 #
  • The completed hexagon picnic table top. It think it looks pretty sharp! Now to screw it down. Just air nailed for now. http://twitpic.com/75vxar #
  • I don’t have a miter box so I made another saw jig to help cut my 30* corners http://twitpic.com/75w6y5 http://twitpic.com/75w6zf http://twitpic.com/75w71d #
  • My hexagon picnic table is too big to assemble in the garage so I am working in the driveway. Next step-put on the legs http://twitpic.com/76ccjf #
  • Temporary support braces so I can float the bottom over the top to attach the legs. http://twitpic.com/76cx35 http://twitpic.com/76czv7 #
  • The two halves are now precariosuly balanced. Once 3 of the legs are on it should be good. How do I center this thing? http://twitpic.com/76cztq #
  • Maybe if I just pin nail 3 legs on, I can center the bottom to the top? Bolt these three up, than the other three? http://twitpic.com/76d0yp #
  • When a woodworker says you can never have enough clamps they speak the truth. I am using every clamp I own & am short 3 http://twitpic.com/76ddwg #
  • Done with the picnic table… well mostly done. A few cosmetic additions need to be made later. http://twitpic.com/76e8xr http://twitpic.com/76eab5 #
  • Skype on a tablet simply rocks. I was working with the IT guy here with a new firewall over skype and could SHOW him what lights where on. #
