One of the best Christmas gifts I got this year was a stocking stuffer my wife (uh, I mean Santa!) gave me — a DVD of Stand By Me, one of greatest movies of all time. We just finished watching it and the special featurette on the making of the movie. After that, we both started looking around for stuff about the actors on the ‘net (typical of us, we both need lives very seriously.) I found WilWheatonDotNet, not your typical celebrity site. He sounds like quite an interesting guy, even though he and I are, politically speaking, polar-opposites. But I like his style of humor, very self-deprecating.
This is a picture of Molly and me reading the Christmas story this morning, and pretty much sums up what our Christmas day was like. Penny took this with her new camera, a Canon 300D EOS Digital Rebel, with an 18×55 (to start with!)
What an insightful post, this is just hysterical, but also very telling.
Don’t you hate it when you work your tail off to create a great web site, one that validates and everything — then some other person or group comes along behind you and screws it all up? I just recently did a complete overhaul of a government website for an advertising agency.
Being the perfectionist that I am, I wanted it to be done right so I made sure that it validated as XHTML 1.1 strict, which is no small feat, especially when doing a site for a government agency which has all kinds of requirements and inclusions.
Well, I’ve updated Zempt again. The current build (0.4.257) fixes a problem that you could get when running under Windows 95/98. I think the installer has been updated, so hop on over to Zempt and download the latest.
