I just spent the better part of an hour trying to print on a #10 envelope with OpenOffice.org. I don't think the rest of the world should have to suffer through the same ordeal, so here's something that might help if you need to do the same.
Nina's multi-day birthday bash is progressing fabulously, thanks to all of Tracy's planning. Yesterday, there was plenty of play, then bowling and pizza with all of the neighbors at the Rock 'n Bowl, then ice cream at the Creole Creamery, then more play. Today's highlights included the amusement park, a spectacular gondola ride through the waterways of City Park, swimming, opening presents, cake, a show of pictures, a movie, and a sleep over. Here are some pictures taken in the amusement park and of the gondola.
I just found a beautiful interpretation of Mozart's Requiem. Click the play below to hear it.
Katie Wainwright just published a new book! It will be available this fall, in the usual places (Amazon, Barnes And Noble, and so on).
Congratulations Aunt Katie!
When I haven't been too busy with my real job, which is actually pretty interesting and consuming, I've been spending weekends working with some other people on a project that until tonight was called Momentum. Despite how much I like the word, however, "Momentum" is a bad name for the project because it is vague (it's relevance to our project requires an explanation) and because it is taken, in common use, hard to work into a domain name, and so on.
I can't remember where I read this. But it works! If you know where this came from, please help me provide proper attribution in the comments.
To avoid jet lag, follow these steps:
1. Determine your wake-up time in the remote location (example: 7am, London)
2. Convert that time to your local time (example: 2pm, New Providence)
3. Calculate your fast-start time by subtracting 14 hours from the local time (example: midnight, New Providence)
