Blog The Compleat Vegetarian Hits 10875 | Last Modified 2007-05-25
I often joke with people that I became a vegetarian to impress a couple of hippy girls I once lived with, and although this is partially true, it is not the whole truth. At the time I had been reading a lot of books on religion, learning about meditation and generally becoming, well, more hippy than I was anyway. Slowly, over time, I began to have nagging doubts about meat.

You want to learn some Java. You think it would be fun to pass time writing inane little games. You want to write these little games to run in a browser window like Internet Explorer. Still with me? Good. I'm assuming no knowledge at all about anything, so, let's begin.
Blog Sawdust Hits 1809 | Last Modified 2007-05-16
Thereís sawdust everywhere. Itís in my hair, under my nails, in the fabric of my clothes, in my nose, my ears, between my toes, and generally settled in my lungs. Not the nice kind of sawdust that you plunge your hand into to grab a prize at a lucky-dip, oh no, the finer kind, the dust and airborne kind. Yes, another day with unlikely sanding machines.
