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

Gah. MUST UPDATE BLOG MORE OFTEN!!!

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 HowdSeamGr@aol.com. 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!
