Skype for Mac sucks.

I got a message on my computer today. There's a new version of Skype! It's only been 6 months since their last developer's blog post. I should know, I check every few days to see if, by some act of God or Management, they're forced to actually post something.

It seems even a new version of their product doesn't warrant a post. Nice to know they care.

Anyways, what's new with the new version? Why, it's a list of items that were new last July! How useful. They can't even post a changelog for the last two versions of their software. Why should I download the new version, exactly? Oh, yeah. Because I'd asked if they could fix a really annoying 'feature'.

On to why the software itself sucks:

We're getting married!

Yay! Okay, I felt like I should post up a big, blaring, announcement on here so that nobody could possibly miss it.

There. Now you're not in the dark!
Us on the glacier!

P.S. No complaining that you can't find the wedding link.

"A child, two guys, can of Quick Start, Bic lighter: How could this not go wrong?"

I'm not really a big fan of posting news items to blogs, but I had to share this:
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Police say two Anchorage men who were baby-sitting a girlfriend's children set a 5-year-old boy's hair on fire with what they called a "redneck flamethrower."

Cruise Ship Pollution

Cruise Ship Pollution

It was a dark and stormy night;

In 5th grade I went to something called the Young Writer's Conference. Ostensibly it was an event for elementary school students who had an interest in writing to get together with teachers and authors, acting as mentors, and learn different techniques about how to be creative. In reality, I think most of us signed up simply to get Brian Jacques to autograph our Redwall books.
