Squid Update

Gosh! It's been so long since I wrote an update, I can't remember how to do this!

1) Working at night (full time) and trying to get a technology support consultancy off the ground during the day. Doesn't leave a lot of time for anything else.

2) Alexander is in kindergarten, and loves it. He starts at 9am, and is done at 11:45am, at which time I pick him up and take him to the day home, where he spends the rest of the day until picked up by his mom after she gets home from work.

3) Audrey is 18 months old now (wow! time flies) and spends her days at the day home. The woman who operates the day home is wonderful, as are her husband and two children, who are young adults.

4) my wife is working as webmaster for a large institution here in the city - it's interesting work and she loves it.

5) Skitz is Skitz - he's 10 years old now, and slowing down - and he's bigger than ever, and resists every diet I put him on. He's 17 pounds, but the vet wants him to weigh 12-13 pounds. The kids, of course, adore him, and he adores the kids, and is great with them.

There. An update. And I hope to get back into the swing of things, now that the archives are all transferred and available. Still need the occasional tweak here and there, but most of them are done...

UPDATE: Please note - trackbacks were lost - unfortunately, the WayBack Machine is not able to get into Movable Type trackbacks, because robots.txt keeps it out of cgi. Comments, however, have been retained in their entirety, with the exception of some 5 spam comments that eluded me before.

update 2005.10.24

As you can see, there is a slight improvement in the readability of the blog now - this is a temporary solution until I can build a new skin or set-of-skins that I like.

More to read now, too - over a year's worth of archive imported now, only 12 months left to import. It's slow going, but I'm getting there. Hey, you never know! I might even throw in a real entry soon!

Archives are en route

I am slowly importing the archives. If you notice anything that bothers you as you read through them, perhaps what might be an error in the import process, please let me know at squiddy AT programmer DOT net - manual importation is a tricky thing :)

I'm back!

Squidblog lives again, thanks to the kind munuvians, who allowed me to join them. There isn't much to see right now, and it's extremely barebones, but over the next while I'll pretty the place up, and figure out a relatively easy way to get the archives (over at the Wayback Machine) on here... because as much as I love the Wayback Machine, it's painful sometimes... :)

Stay tuned... more is on the way...
