I started reading The Purpose Driven Life a few days ago. The idea is that you read one chapter per day, and only one. Why? You have time to think about you've read for a day. Each chapter is roughly 4-6 pages, and it's 40 chapters. Even I should have th… more »

As many of you can probably tell, one of my the things I enjoy doing is to pick NFL games every week. Right now, I track my picks in an excel spreadsheet. Not exactly ideal, but it works. And it has for the past two years. But as I start to look at h… more »

Happy Birthday Tina!

Today is my wife's birthday. She turned 11010. Yes, that's a clever "encoding" to disquise her age. I'm pretty sure she doesn't want that published, so I'll leave it up to you to figure out how old she is. It's a good thing no one knows binary these day… more »

Back From Vacation

posted on 2004-09-10 at 14:04:08 by Joel Ross

Obviously, I'm back from South Carolina now. It was a good trip, but Frances (at least the remnants of it) chased us out of Myrtle Beach. Literally. For three counties, right after we left them, we'd hear reports of tornado warnings for the county we jus… more »

I know, I know. I don't really post that much, but at least now I have an excuse! I'll be out of touch until September 10th or 11th, so the posting will be non-existent until after that time. Of course, this assumes no hurricanes, which it looks like Fra… more »
