OK! Long time no see...

: ; ; ;

Good golly, I'm sorry I haven't been around for a while. I've been busy with college and I've been busy with work and THEN there's our beautiful baby boy Matthew, so as you can see I've been a bit busy.

As I write this, I'm not using the included word processer in Blogger, but instead a much better replacement to Notepad, called Notepad2. It's just as quick, almost as small, and (the programmer in me LOVES this), it supports Syntax Highlighting. Coolness. Oh, and I THINK it's OSS to boot. At the very least, I KNOW it's freeware. Good stuff.

Now, I know many of you are looking for more pics of Matt-i-chew. Well, I assure you we have them; I just gotta put them up.

So, how about that Xbox 360, eh? I have GOT to log more time on that bad boy. It's sad, but about all I get is five or ten minutes a week (no joke!) to fool around with one of the Arcade titles (such as Marble Blast Ultra or the ever uber Geometry Wars). 3 processers, half a gig of ram, 20 gig HDD, and what do I do? I play a glorified Marble Madness. :D

Family life is fun, if stressful. I swear to god, I don't know how single moms do it. I'm not even a mom, and I'm going insane. It's crazy. Pure and simple.

I dream sometimes of making a game. It's never going to happen at this rate, but it's still nice to dream about it. I can't help but wonder where I'll be in five or ten years. I hope I'm filty rich and no longer working. :D


Found a neato little visual style for XP. Doesn't require a program to install, but you DO need a hacked version of the uxtheme.dll file found in (assuming you have your main Windows install on your C: drive) "C:\Windows\system32\uxtheme.dll".To get the patched version, just google for "patched uxtheme.dll". After you have it, you can just copy it over your old one (I'd make sure to save a copy of the old one though), and reboot. Oh, and Windows may mention that a system file is being overwritten or something. Just "OK" it when it comes up.

All that work for a cool theme! It's the Crystal XP Milk visual style. I REALLY like it. It's a free download, and I think you'll be pleased too. Check

Have I ever mentioned how huge of a fan of Gmail I am? I REALLY like it. Now they've gone and made it EVEN MORE COOL! They have a great new service where they'll be rolling out Google Talk funcionality RIGHT IN YOUR INBOX!!! I, for one, think that is UBER SWEET! Anyone who want's a gmail invite, just lemme know in the comments (or follow my email link over on the side of the screen). I've got a butt load to give out!

Wow. This is weird. I went to log into blogger, and someone, somehow, had posted spam as a actual blog post in MY BLOG! I'm not sure how (I use an alphanumeric password over 6 characters in length), but that is WEIRD. Has this ever happend to anyone before? It was saved as a draft, and it's clearly Spam (though I'm not gonna post it, becuase I assume that would only make whoever it is happy). The listed email in the post is to Huh. This is weird. I'm gonna have to start hosting my own soon, maybe...

UPDATE: Ok, I think this happened because blogger has this feature that allows you to update by email, and I think some spammer just got lucky and spammed the email address I had set up for this site. Thank god I didn't have it set to autopost :D. At any rate, I'm calling this case closed!

Ok, this has been long enough, I think. I'll end by saying that when I hear anything cool about anything, I'll try to make time to post. Oh, and I'll hopefully be posting MUCH more when I'm finaly out of college, but we'll see. :D

Thanks for reading!
