Redoing the Blog for Three Point Oh


I'm going to be revamping the blog again. I've already switched over to the new 2010 theme to have a look at how it works and what it does. I haven't decided if I'm going to build based off of 2010 or do something new and interesting from scratch.

For the next month or so, my family and I have decided that we cheer for Africa!

Go South Africa! Go Ghana! Go Cameroon! Go Côte d'Ivoire!

Unfortunately, because of rampant Advance Fee Fraud I just can't cheer for Nigeria. (this is said pertly, tongue in cheek, and just for fun).

Riding a Bike


I've recently entered into a conversation with Mr. Carmichael about bike lanes, sidewalks and roads and where bikes should be. In it, I defended the idea that bikes should be allowed to ride on the sidewalk, but things were confused because of Twitter's 140 character limit. I came across sounding like I completely disapproved of bike lanes, which I don't.

The Facebook tie-in

I am on the fence with @font-face. I've noticed more and more (after it was pointed out to me by Nick) that when you use @font-face, the text displays and then will, after a brief pause, morph into the selected font. Every time I see that happen, I want to use @font-face slightly less.

On the other hand, the web would be so much prettier if I could just add "@font-face: Aller" to every page…

Project Euler


I'm a latecomer to the Project Euler game, but I'm looking for a strong finish.

I've been trying to hone my Python skills, so I Dove Into Python with a vengeance. That didn't quite sate my desire for crazy coding fun, and my good buddy Sean suggested the

I have two RSS related questions:

  • Which RSS reader (if any) do you use?
  • What's in your RSS reader?

Edit: I'm asking both how many feeds you have and what your favourites are. Feel free to be specific (or not - no judgment either way).
