Oops, comments are back.


Side effects from the power outage made some of this site not work (search, tags browsing and comments) and I just noticed now. Oops.

Lots of pictures coming to flickr soon!

Real dogs eat mango

We take some pride in giving our dog a varied diet (although it's usually the same raw chicken, cooked brown rice and some veggies - carrots, broccoli, whatever we have in the fridge that's not from the "nightshade family".

Occasionally she'll get an Apple (raw and preferably not with other food, I forget why) or like a few days ago: the remains of a mango!

Sunrise from Hollywood

Good morning Los Angeles.

Larger version. Night time version.

Links of the day


Oregon Landscape

I haven't figured out how to post "interesting links of the day". I don't like posting them here, and clearly I haven't been motivated enough to setup a del.icio.us feed from there to a sidebar here. Hmn.

Anyway, here are some for today.

Javascript 2, could be in browsers in 2007! It looks completely awesome. They are planning/considering/hoping for a js2 to js1 translator to generate code for old browsers.

Judge says cutting profanity (etc) out of movies is illegal. According to the judge, it is up to the moviemakers to decide who their film was appropriate for and tailor it accordingly. "Whether these films should be edited in a manner that would make them acceptable to more of the public playing on a DVD in a home environment is more than merely a matter of marketing; it is a question of what audience the copyright owner wants to reach," he wrote in his ruling. "What is protected are the creator's rights to protect its creation in the form in which it was created.". (Yay).

ABC hopes to halt fast-forwarding. The Cable companies might fall for it, but probably not TIVO. (I think the TIVO shares I picked up in the winter will go up if so...)

Wired Magazine gets Wired! For years they didn't own the wired.com site. Now they do (again). Speaking of Wired, Lawrence Lessig had a good column on An Inconvenient Truth.

Curbed LA points to a fun map of Los Angeles housing prices.

Remember to register for OSCON! The photo above is from Oregon last year (we made a quick roadtrip out of it).

I'm okay, you're okay...


Cooking on our little charcoal grillActually, I've no idea if you are okay and I'm not entirely sure if I am, but I think I am getting there.

I haven't posted anything since last week about the CT scan, oops. Way to leave you on a cliff-hanger, dear reader. Sorry about that.

I have been doing much better. On the 4th I was even grilling a bit without clumsily ruining too much food or burning anything down. My headaches are going away and I only get the dizzy spells when I move much too fast, look up or try doing too much when I'm too tired.

I still do lots of sleeping, napping and resting (and laying awake at night being tired but not falling asleep which of course doesn't help the next day, grrh), but I don't feel completely exhausted all day anymore. Yay.


When you are getting a CT scan keep your eyes closed! (Or only open them if you are absolutely completely a billion percent sure that you are outside the machine). Hello small enclosed space.

This has been your public service announcement of the day.

My head got worse (or at least not at all better) over the weekend Vani took me in the early afternoon and they supposedly sent the results to my doctor. I was hoping I could get to see the pictures, but not yet. Maybe we can call and get them. "Look look, that's my BRAIN!"
