Leopard on the Horizon

So, I’m not the only one, there are a lot of excited people around waiting patiently for their copy of Leopard to arrive, myself included. I can’t honestly remember being this excited for an OS upgrade ever. The Apple community sure is different from the Microsoft one, in that people ten[...]

New projects

So, I’ve been insanely busy the last few weeks, and haven’t taken any time out of my busy schedule to write anything of interest here. I’ve been really busy with work and life, but I won’t bore you with the details of that… I will however, take a few seconds to introduc[...]

WordPress Upgrade

Well, you may or may not notice I’m now running WordPress 2.3 on my site. The upgrade went very smoothly, and I’m hoping it fixes my theme problem I’ve been having. Only time will tell, as it apparently is random, if it happens again, I’m going to go hunting for the source of[...]

Guelph Transit thinks busses are too convenient

Very recently i have come to a shocking conclusion about Guelph's supposedly acclaimed transit system. As a pre-cursor to this whole rant, I would just like to state that these are my own experiences, however, they are mirrored by others that I know.

Fixed Website

Okay, so, recently I’ve been having this really annoying problem, where my wordpress homepage would just come up blank. I kind of ignored it, but I knew it had something to do with themes causing problems. For some reason, every now and then my blog’s theme gets set back to “defaul[...]
