As I was poking around on his personal blog I came across his cool wedding invitation and save the date postcard. Be sure to click on the link to view the popup that shows the whole inside of the booklet. It's really cool. I'm jealous.
How to update your Mac for the change in Daylight Savings Time
As you may already know, beginning in 2007 daylight savings time (DST) will be extended in the United States and Canada. DST will start on March 11, 2007, which is three weeks earlier than usual, and it will end on November 4, 2007, which is one week later than usual.
Mac users who have Software Update set to automatically check for updates on a regular basis should have already been prompted to download and install new software. If you haven't, or you want to double-check, here are the steps.
Update (May 10, 2008): Imagine my surprise to see a flood of comments on a single post today. And such lovely comments they are. If only these commenters had paid attention to the date of the original fucking post.
Attention all you infuriated but obviously not very observant people: I am not the current art director for UrbanBaby and the new redesign launched in May 2008 has nothing to do with me.
I'm pretty happy with it so far, although there are some significant problems with the CSS not matching the mockups I provided. At least, they're serious to me and anyone aesthetically astute enough to notice them.
Velma got a book from the library on clicker training your cat. She started a couple days ago on the training, and despite one setback that left her punctured and incredibly bloody, she's had a bit of success.
My guess is it's going to be slow going with our somewhat dumb vampire cat, but we'll see. I'm staying out of the clicker training for now. But I'm hoping Velma can eventually teach Orson to play chopsticks...or turn out the lights...
I guess it's time to break out the vintage Van Halen T-shirts. I would dig seeing this show, but will they make it to the Shoreline before they implode? Dave Wight will probably be starting a pool on how many dates they last before a blow-up between Eddie and David Lee Roth.
When the rumors started bubbling a couple months ago that the original Van Halen might reunite for the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Roth commented in his characteristic manner: "A Van Halen reunion is a lot like NASCAR — are you there to see the winner or the crash? In this aspect, we're a lot closer to Jerry Springer-meets-Knots Landing which, to me, sells T-shirts."
While Velma and I were in San Diego a few weekends ago (more on that later) we took some fashion-type photos of Velma wearing garments made with Ozark Handspun yarns. These we're using to illustrate free patterns (that's knitter's lingo for "knitting directions") available on the OzarkHandspun.com.
I'm not really a fashion photographer by any stretch of the imagination, but a few of the shots came out pretty good.
