Total Baby iOS App

During Robin’s first month, we were using the Total Baby app several times a day to keep track of how many wet/dirty diapers she had, how often she ate, her weight, etc. I blame being an engineer and having to record everything, but it was useful to have the numbers ready when we went for [...]

What’s going on guys?

site stuff I’ve successfully changed hosting providers from the awful and overpriced Powweb to the fairly priced and not too shabby NearlyFreeSpeech.net thanks to a recommendation by my dear friend Berklee. They’re a small hosting company that offers web hosting services on a ‘pay as you go’ system. With no early contracts, I figured I [...]

Project365, Flickr, and more

After the first two days of it working fine, it just stopped working completely. No notifications even though I was getting new mail. [...]

RunKeeper Review

I’ve started running a lot more often to try to keep my girlish figure from exploding thanks to the massive amount of delicious food I eat.  My goal is not to be stick-thin, but just to fit comfortably into my jeans. ALL my jeans. I never was much of a runner before.  I hated running [...]
