I found this photo on Flickr yesterday. It is about the ugliest cat I have ever seen.

Okay after a lot of monkeying around, I finally got the css and php set up for the new theme. I have no idea why I spent so much time doing it, but I occasionally get pretty anal about some things. I re-jiggered the columns to allow the medium sized Flickr pictures in here. So I will test it out with one of my favorite pictures from Costa Rica.
I am really spending a lot of time in Flickr, uploading and categorizing my stuff from my iPhoto. It is very easy to do, and I am surprised how many people on Flickr have stumbled onto my pictures. Anyway, here is an older pic from last year in Copenhagen, with Peter – one of my friends I met in Eve-Online.
It’s just not easy maintaining the tech side of the blog. I spend more time than I like using FTP programs, much like I did back in 1994. It’s been 12 years! Why aren’t things more transparent… Actually that new iLife iWeb looks really nice (watch that flash demo) – that’s how all blogging should be. Even though I am an Apple guy, I don’t think I will switch because I am sure the WordPress / .Mac integration is a disaster.
The refresh problem on my blog should be better now that I took off that Wordspew Shoutbox… so now you should be able to see the videos without a problem.
Most of my old entries still do not have pictures since I moved everything to Flickr. Flickr is really great and I am digging it. Be sure to Friend me on there if you are a Flickr user – my username is stuckincustoms.
This Mozart’s Coffee Roasters is where I come some days in Austin to drink coffee and hop onto the wireless broadband pro bono. It’s right on Lake Austin and they have a huge deck where you can hang out, look at the lake, and drink coffee. 90% of the tables here are filled with people on their laptops doing god knows what.
It is almost surreal… everyone could be at home, drinking coffee, online with their laptop, totally alone. But instead they all come here to be by other people who are doing the same thing. As strange as this human behavior is, I can’t help but notice I am part of it.
I was trying to watch the NFL playoff game last night on Fox, and they decided to split screen the UT Longhorn celebration. It was so insane, that it spawned the following complaint email to the station:
Who’s stupid idea was it to split screen the UT celebration? That is the most inane decision I have ever seen. Consider these indisputable facts:
1) You could not hear anything about the UT celebration
2) Both were so small you could barely see either
3) The UT stuff that was shown was completely boring – just a bunch of extroverted girls standing in a pile of nonsensical patterns
4) After you made a bad decision, you repeated it again 10 minutes later (as I am now seeing)
5) The second time you showed it, you showed a chubbyish Barry Switzer giving some speech that no one could hear
6) The pans to the football players majoring in American Studies and Hungarian Cabinet Making was really great television
7) I’m going to watch 24 anyway, but I hope the first episode is Jack Bauer coming into Fox 7 to blow up the control panel that controls split screen activity.
My Gallery2 installation has officially bombed. There is nothing I can do. I had my crack staff try to fix it, but instead they decided to get on crack. This is going to be a pain in the ass, but I am going to move everything over to Flickr. Flickr is better anyway… and I have some automated plugins for my iPhoto to make it easy – but it is still somewhat of a drain. Most of my old entries will probably be broken too for a while.
I am catching a plane later today for Palm Beach then Chicago. I don’t think I will be anywhere interesting enough to grab cool pictures, but I will try.
