This server provides hosting for various projects under development. When these projects cross over into useful web applications, they are listed under the Hosted Domains or Web Applications menus. The purpose is to provide a live development environment for myself and others that request access. I also use it as my personal soapbox.
This morning I awoke to 45° and a mission to ride my new motorcycle to work.
The glorious fuel injection laughed at the cold morning, and started right up without any choking or warming up required. The instant on feeling kept me
warm for about 15 minutes at which point I started to lose feeling in my neck. Fortunately being only 20 miles into my 500 mile break-in period, I couldn't exceed 45mph
so I retained enough heat to make it to work alive. The ride home was worth the morning torture, a 65° joyride. To celebrate, I decided to order my first pizza through the Xbox.
Despite my very specific request that Lisa only allow Y chromosone carriers into her eggs, once again I am having a daughter.
Clearly she does not want me to have a son, knowing I will love whatever comes out of her vagina unconditionally.
I can already see my life 16 years from now, with 16 and 18 year old daugters. Hopefully by then we live in a police state and
I'll be able to monitor every minute of their lives, sending a jolt of electricity to their communication implants when they get
close to a boy.
Bring your kid to work day is still 10 days out, but since Lila is under 6 she doesn't qualify. To protest, I decided to
bring her today instead, when the bring your kid to work day officials were least expecting it. A tour of my office, the giant catbox of Detroit and the street meat vendors was sufficient to convince her
to stay in school and get a better job than me.
After being talked into Defiance by several people at work, I was disappointed to find the same old rivalry preventing a cross-platform experience. Rumor has it
the PC, Xbox and PS3 instances of the game are seperated by a simple firewall at the request of those involved. Regardless, the game is enjoyable enough to get past the false hope. The most
interesting thing I've found so far however, is an in-game patching system. Instead of waiting on the painfully slow Xbox certification process to get updates, Trion somehow
got MS to buy into a self-contained system that bypasses them completely. The result is almost daily updates similar to what PC MMO players have enjoyed forever. This gives me hope for the next Xbox
being more open to game developers and less restrictive (translating into more games and more cheevos!)
With Lila excited about her new room, we decided the best thing to do is whisk her away from it to see some butterflies. Also included was a visit to see my sister and their dog, which Lila went absolutely nuts over. The butterflies were excited to see Lila, who managed to not eat a single one. To celebrate, we went to a local brewery where I became intoxicated and acted belligerent to the waitress, to the delight of all those around me. A trip to another self-service ice cream store (seem to be all the rage lately) completed the visit, with promises of a boat adventure next time.
