New place, interesting finds

So, the move went well. We’re in our new apartment, all our utilities transfered nicely, and most of our stuff is unpacked (we’re still working on some of the pots and pans). It was pretty uneventful. The most interesting thing is that on my new way home from work, there’s a pawn shop that sells swords. Swords. How very strange…

Dork-sided

Once again, it’s been a while since I blogged so it’s time for the update :).

Coaster
So, I’ve kind of been slacking in this area lately. I finally got multiple row drag and drop implemented (thanks Aaron for your Banshee code which does this) and it works pretty well. Hopefully I can get some bugs worked out and get 0.1.5 release sometime soon.

Work
Over the summer, I was put in charge of my company’s web site which is where most of my time and energy went. Since then, we’ve launched the site and I’ve worked on using XML/XSLT to generate the web site (soon to be put into production) using xsltproc. Another thing I’ve done is set up a little Ubuntu server internally to develop some commonly used “applications” that were “developed” using Excel. The machine I used as the server is an old 233 mhz Pentium II. It’s surprising how fast it runs when it doesn’t have to do graphical functions.

Home
We’re moving! Ok, not that far, but we’re moving to a bigger apartment about 10 minutes away from where we are now. Hopefully the switch of utilities won’t be as bad as someone’s. The cool thing about this apartment is that it’ll have a spare bedroom that I can set up a pseudo-office with all my computer stuff.

Trading Spouses
Watched “Trading Spouses” tonight. It was the second of two and there was a psycho lady on there. Holy cow. On behalf of all Christians that aren’t psycho, I’d like to apologize for this ladies actions. If you get a chance to see the reruns of this episode, make sure you watch it. You’ll get a kick out of it.
