I joined twitter after reading about it on the blog Arcane Code. This has to be the best way to keep up with people on the internet 🙂 . Initially, I didn’t stay logged in for any length of time, nor did I log in often. It turns out that one of my daughters found me on twitter days before I checked back to see if I had had any activity. Of course my children are linked to the net. I’ve had a microcomputer since 1982. All of them grew up with a computer or two in the house. Of course, children being children, they have their own tastes. Some are on facebook and myspace. Some are on twitter and facebook. If any of you also have linked in Gen-D children, you know where I am coming from (time to add facebook and myspace to my overloaded schedule).

It has been a long time since my last post. In the last year I have moved, returned to the world of work, built my own LAN, and neglected my blog :).

I have made some changes to the blogroll. The Townhall.com feeds were broken when their web site was updated, so I removed them. I have added two National Review Online blogs to the blogroll for your enjoyment.

I have previously mentioned a new prediction market at http://inklingmarkets.com. I have sold my biggest loser to date. So far, so good given that this is my first foray into fantasy prediction markets. I found this site via The Club for Growth.

I have installed the Beta 2 version of Windows Vista. So far I like it. I set it up as a dual boot system. I have not encountered any problems with dual booting into Windows XP sp2 nor with Windows Vista Beta 2.

Your Superhero Profile
Your Superhero Name is The Flash Samurai
Your Superpower is Waking Through Walls
Your Weakness is Meat
Your Weapon is Your Laser Belt
Your Mode of Transportation is Llama

What's your Superhero Name?

You Are Sunset
Even though you still may be young, you already feel like you've accomplished a lot in life.
And you feel free to pave your own path now, and you're not even sure where it will take you.
Maybe you'll pursue higher education in a subject you enjoy – or travel the world for a few years.
Either way, you approach life with a relaxed, open attitude. And that will take you far!

What Time Of Day Are You?

Your Power Level is: 80%
You're a very powerful person, and you know that all of your power comes from within.
Keep on doing what you're doing, and you'll reach your goals.

How Powerful Are You?

I really love this one since it has been some 35 years since I took "8th grade Geography" ;).

You Passed 8th Grade Geography
Congratulations, you got 7/10 correct!

Could You Pass 8th Grade Geography?

I've been away for a while. I've had to change my ISP, and it took until today to get back up and running. I'm so far behind that I can't catch up ;).
