I've started a new blog separate from this one to document the progress of my house project. I've called it casa, and it's now officially open.

Bruce Schneier has this to say about McAfee's announcement of a JPEG virus:

"The second point is that this isn't an example of the above
phenomenon. There is no executable virus hidden in the JPEG. Near as I
can tell, Perrun isn't even a virus. It's a program file -- an EXE file --
that inserts code into JPEG files. Without the EXE file, nothing
happens. It only works if you're already infected with an extractor that
reads the code out of the images. This is worse than lame; it's stupid. I
am stunned that any competent virus researcher considered this worth a
second glance."

Colours on the web - color theory and color matching I have an older entry that refers to this site, but the link has succumbed to linkrot. So I stumbed across this the other day, failed to bookmark it, and then had to spend fifteen minutes googling like a rhesus monkey on crack to find it again. Dig it, the best color widgets I've found.

I never imagined that people would actually look at the baby pictures on this site, but the logs don't lie. You look. Consistently. And now I feel bad since the newest pix are about a year old. Well, it's not that I'm a bad dad, I've been taking pix the whole time mostly. But I haven't been posting them. So I decided to add a couple (a hundred and fifty actually) to the slide show.

Well, the good thing about being out of town on training is dining on expense account.

Dale Wheat, purveyor of electronic wizardry to the elite, has run off and got himself hitched. In Vegas. You gotta love it when a couple registers at BG Micro. Best wishes, you wacky Wheats.

The Schmitt Homepage showed up in my referer log. As is my habit, I dropped by to see what was up. Wasn't I flattered when this mysterious Schmitt person listed me in the "cool people" category and described me as "consummate hacker and renaissance man of all things techno." That's gotta be the nicest thing anyone's said about me in a while.

It's been a while since I posted a mod, but then again it's been a while since I did one. So have a look at this.
