First Lesson

By Hass :: November 12, 2004 @ 07:27 AM

Sprout has finally figured something out. Our little genius seems to have a graspe on why the pretext for the Franco-Prussian war wasn't really about the Spanish throne, as much as it was about a dispraportionate distribution of wealth. He(or she) also has a grasp on his (or her) ability to affect the universe. He (or she) kicks back when nicole rolls in a way that makes him (or her) uncomfortable.

Not to be out done by little Sprout's registry, I've done my own. I'm not expecting to get everythign on here, but if somebody has a an extra $3,900.00 there is a lens here with my name on it.

This is still a work in progress, I'll post again when it's finalized.

Amazon Wish List

Edible Electoral College

By Hass :: November 08, 2004 @ 09:46 AM

edible This was my prediction for the Electoral College vote. It proved radically wrong. I got a couple of easy to call states and regions right though. I've considered doing a final result map, but it's much too depressing. A county by county map would be cool do too, but I'd need to find smaller fruit.

I've been thinking about adding a whole section of edible Cartography. It'll take some work though.

Blue or Pink? What did the Sprout reveal to us this morning? Zip, zilch, nada, nothing. Thirty-plus minutes of ultrasound fun, and Sprout revealed him/herself to be a healthy, gender-neutral baby. Bring on the green and yellow! Gender and Name to be determined on March 4, 2005.

Version 1.0

By Hass :: November 02, 2004 @ 04:42 AM

After three months of toil and frustration, we're launching the site today. Thanks to everybody who has taken a look and offered feedback.

I'm blown away by how much the web has changed since the last time I really got my teeth wrapped around a site. CSS and MT have made the World Wide Web a much snazzier place that is a lot easier to update.

As with anything new, I'm sure there will be kinks, please let me know if you see anything you want changed or fixed. Just leave a comment below.

Already behind schedule

By Hass :: November 01, 2004 @ 06:25 AM

Nov. 1, a shinny reminder that the holiday season is just around the corner and it's time to make the 2004 Christmas letter a reality. The begining of November may seem a little early for an xmas letter, but we're slow writers and even slower on the layout. The goal is typically to get the letter done by T'giving and send it out a week or two later, we;ll see if we can hit it.

If anybody has ideas for the letter, or is interested in paid political advertising just leave a comment.
