Mossad in America

Lightbox 2.0

I ran across a web page that employed Lokesh Dhakar's "Lightbox 2.0" CSS code and was blown away -- I immediately set to rewriting my web site (www.spaceways.net) -- a major improvement. I'm tickled. The effect (one of those Web 2.0 things) is so slick that I gleefully send Mr. or… Read full post »

Six hours later

Got up at 4:30, shaved, showered, got dressed, killed ants, fed the cats, woke the kids, made coffee and breakfast and school lunches. Delivered kids, went to office supply stores. Came back home. Sat down. 10:30. Nearly fell asleep. Six hours awake and I'm tired. Weird.

The days blend together

The first day of school was Wednesday. My cell phone alarm went off @ 4:20 and I actually got out of bed rather than waiting eight minutes for the snooze alarm to go off.

How to clean glass

First, put on your big, thick, heavy pair of black rubber lab gloves, the OSHA-approved kind... no, just kidding. Get some CORNSTARCH and some water, mix a half-handful of cornstarch into about a pint of water use that to wash whatever mirror or window you have in front of you, then… Read full post »

Google has a maps feature which has an option to view the Earth from a satellite's point of view. It's amazing.
