Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Missed my flight

Damn. I figured leaving here an hour and 45 minutes early would be good enough. The airport is usually a half hour away. I left at 3:45, flight was at 5:35. I didn't reach the airport until 4:45 and found the long-term parking was full. Taking the shuttle bus (the only option) put me in the terminal at 5:05. I figured 30 minutes would still be enough time - definitely close - but enough time. Nope, Northwest has a policy that you must check in 45 minutes before the flight, no ifs ands or buts. What the fuck?!

I admit that it was mostly my fault for being late, but I'm willing to bet I could've made it. They said because I had a Hotwire ticket, they couldn't to anything for me. They did offer another flight tomorrow for a small fee (they never specified). I didn't want to go for only 24 hours, so I'm stuck at home. $200 bucks out the window, and I'm one of the 3 people that is missing Paw's 80th birthday (out of ~20). I feel like a moron.

I'm outta here

I'm off to Indiana for a weekend of family, fun and booze. If this site goes down while I'm gone, don't fret - there probably won't be any new content over the weekend. I'll be back late Sunday night and up early Monday morning to teach the JSP class that got cancelled last week. Mini-vacations rock!

I just discovered a sweet Safari feature while writing this post: highlight a word, right-click and voila - there's a spell checker!

Washed and Dried

I accidentally washed and dried my CommuniCam this morning. Judging from the picture below, it doesn't appear to be affected that much - blurry as ever.
