Tim Bray over @ Ongoing got a bit of spam the other day and did a little background checking on who is playing games. Here is the write-up on what he found.
I for one feel that every spammer’s personal email and home address should be veraciously ferretted out and published for anyone to see. Then They should be doused in boiling tar, feathered, cut into small bits and fed to fire ants over several days. Not that I am bitter or anything. 😉
On the 4th (actually the party started on the the 3rd of July I went to this party party hosted by this guy Devon. Holy crap, great party! Here are some of the picts that they took that night. Also check out his website (SwankCowboys.com.

I would like to extend my deepest condolences to those who’s lives the recent terror attacks in London have touched.
Keith Robinson points to a post from Richard Rutter where he references on of the key effects that the 9-11 attacks had on the American society.
So thanks then, terrorists. You’ve just succeeded in bringing the families of millions of Londoners that bit closer together, giving them an increased love of their city and an enhanced appreciation of their way of life.
This is what the colorgenics test that I had to take for a Psychology class that I took quite some time ago, had to say about me. Almost accurate—I would give it an 8 out of 10 (8/10).
Not quite as close as my personalysis.
I have a real (weird) thing for quotes. Here are some really cool Latin quotes that I came across the other day while surfing. Enjoy…
- Audere est facere – To dare is to do. (Motto of Tottenham Hotspur)
- Audentes fortuna juvat – Fortune favors the bold. (Virgil)
- Antiquis temporibus, nati tibi similes in rupibus ventosissimis exponebantur ad necem – In the good old days, children like you were left to perish on windswept crags
- Ave caesar! Morituri te salutamus – Hail Caesar! We who are about to die salute you. (gladiators before the fight)

While I’m talking about Google, I came across this the other day. It’s a white-board flowchart of Google’s plan for world domination.

Like I mentioned about getting geared up for this racing season, I have put together an iCal of my races this year. Not that anyone is all that interested in the races that I will be doing, but it is a good list of some of the excellent short course races this summer that I am attending in Central Florida this summer. It can be grabbed here.
And like any good web-developer / geek I have created a (X & D)HTML version of my training schedule. I have broken it down into a “base” schedule and then the following 8 weeks of training that lead up to my first race of the season. in a few weeks I will post the second and third sections of my training this summer. I hope this is usefull to someone – anyone. Drop me a line if you have any questions about this stuff.
