Good bye grandma, I’ll miss you.

This week my grandma passed away. It was a day we knew would come but somehow it always seems unexpected when it does happen. She was my last surviving grandparent. I remember fondly sitting with my grandma when I was a kid at her kitchen table learning new card games. That seemed to be our […]

When Computers Go Bad

It’s been a very busy month fighting various computer problems. First I had a motherboard failure which resulted in having to gut my computer and replace most of it.

Sand Art Video on MySpace

I came across this amazing video over on MySpace when I was checking out Ethereal, a new artist for the show. I’m not sure who the artist is in the video but he’s truly amazing. The artist is pushing sand around on a back lit screen which is filmed in silhouette and projected onto the […]

Usually we spend more time trying to figure out what we are going to get everyone than actually doing the getting. The result is that we find ourselves holding off on the […]

If your interested in the space industry and related news you might want to check out his site at http://www.fordianvillage.com/. I may still tweak it […]

Serendipity Plugin – Coppermine Selector Enhanced 2.05

One Serendipity Coppermine plugin I’ve used allot has been the Coppermine Selector plugin by Mathew Maude. One problem I’ve had with it has been that the thumbnail view has been too small for my taste and the full size images are too big.
