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 CÃ´te 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).

I like texting on my phone more and more.
I feel like social media is starting my brain oozing out of my ears. I have to make more of a…
I'd forgotten that these posts get automatically sucked into my facebook page. My brother-in-law mentioned that I was making non-sensical posts about Font Faces at a party last night, and was wondering if I'd had more than just my Warcraft account hacked recently.
Hi Facebook! I'm a geek, and will post geek things as is my wont.
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…
I'm a latecomer to the Project Euler game, but I'm looking for a strong finish.
I have two RSS related questions:
- Which RSS reader (if any) do you use?
- What's in your RSS reader?
