The initial batch of wedding photos are up in the photos section. I have a few from my digital camera and a grip of blurry ones from John and Kelly's camera. :) I will probably end up doing some renaming later on the latter (heh), but for now at least they are visible. I fully intend on buying a scanner once we get all the actual photos developed from the instants etc. Keep checking back! Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention that I made some slight changes to the pic indexing script so that it should now handle subdirectories (categories). It's not fully tested, but one level of nesting should work pretty reliably. A big THANK YOU again to everyone who came to the wedding and helped make the event so special for us both!

Well, I'm going to start reinstalling the Windows box tonight, so there may be some portions of the site that are temporarily down. We apologize for any inconvenience. :) Hopefully things will be back to "normal" in a relatively short period of time.

Arg, I've got a cold. As much as I don't like to admit it, denial isn't going to help me recover. This sucks. I didn't do a damn thing this weekend. What a slack. I did manage to put up the comic cache page. It's a simple PHP script to help see daily online comics on a single page. Nothing amazing, but I think that I will probably use it. I will put a link to it from the computers section when I get around to it.

Well, yesterday I finished up the core hardware in the Ghetto Drum system. It's all mounted nicely in the SyQuest case, and frankly, I think it looks pretty sleek! You can find links to the Ghetto Drum page from the art, computers, and electronics categories (because I think it really fits into each). Now I just need to finish the software for it and build some decent drum pads... Oh yeah, and thanks to Nappy for the SB Live hook ups! Got it installed today and it's a definite improvement on my integrated sound card I was using before.

Well, apparently I forgot to post a link to my ulta sweet artsy fartsy ilab flyby animation that I made a while back. I didn't quite get it as small as I wanted, but I still like it. Check it out and get familiarized with my comfortable mess that is known worldwide as The Infiltration Lab.

I write this a little before midnight, and I just feel that there aren't enough hours in a day. Work, in general, sucks because it consumes at least 1/3 of the day, sleep (now that I'm older and actually feel tired if I don't get some decent zzzzs) takes another 1/3, and eating, driving, shitting, smoking, brushing teeth and showering seem to consume the rest (you know, aside from that other milisecond spent doing mindless relaxation). My mind is filled with projects...it just seems that I can never find time to tackle them all! Arg. I should make a bulleted list somewhere.

Work on the dirt cheap electronic drum has started. Piezo elements are used as triggers, conditioned/amplified by an op-amp circuit, then sent to a PIC16f84 which tracks the inputs and sends the appropriate information via RS232 to a Winderz PC running a custom DirectX (8) application. Of course when more progress is made, you will be able to find schematics, pics, sounds/samples, code, etc. here.
