New Haircut
PoeticIntensity

I just thought I'd let ya'll know that I got a new haircut a couple of days ago.  I think its swell. I guess this just goes to show that I'm not entirely sane... pretty much... ever. The mohawk has quite a story which I might as well divulge right about now. It all happened about 7 years ago, when my brothers all got together for some event...

Today was a good day.  I didn't get enough sleep, so after our work lunch party, which enabled us to eat large amounts of Korean food (seasoned beef 'n' stuff wrapped in lettuce was good, but I didn't like the "kimchi" which was nothing more than hot and spicy rotten cabbage), I felt a bit tired...  Too tired to work. So, I wen...

Man... At work, I've got .... well.. I was gonna say dilemma, but... it's not a dilemma because I know of a way out. My dilemma is, I've gotta have a website functional by Friday, which means I've got two days to get it to work. The database we're connecting to (postgres on gentoo, thank heavens) has a table with more than 12 million rows in it....

Staying True to Yourself
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
One other thing I've been thinking about lately is a lesson I learned a long time ago.  This lesson is summarized into one sentence: Being true to God in no way diminishes your being true to yourself, simply because God knows how the *best* "you" is. I was talking with one of my brothers when he said "But if I become 'churchy'...

Forgiveness

At church this Sunday, we talked about the topic of "forgiveness" in priesthood class and I've gotta say, holy cow - I love that class. Ya know...  I often wonder what makes a good class, and what makes a "not-so-great" class as far as gospel doctrine or priesthood or relief society goes.  Learning about religion can ...

"How have you been changed by knowing the Godhead?" To be honest, I don't think I would recognize myself without the relationship I have with God, through prayer, with Christ through his atonement, and with the Holy Ghost's comfort and guidance. Knowing the Godhead,to me, means that I have an incredible force behind my righteous choic...

Recently I was reading from scriptures.lds.org and decided it could be improved to make it easier to read. Here is what it looks like normally. A couple things bugged me. Narrow text is generally easier to read. So, I made it more narrow. Also, the superscript letters that signify a footnote throw off the line spacing. I figured out a cool l...

So, about 4 or 5 years ago, I met a guy named Jesse Crowley, and we played music together.  At first we played music that other people wrote, but then Jesse got bored with that, and decided to write Christmas music instead.  We recorded a few Christmas albums, and I think they turned out pretty good. So, Jesse decided that wasn't enough...

All I gotta say is, I'm glad I had a lot of clothes on this morning. Yes, it was friggin' cold outside, but that was only a small nuisance. The real reason I'm glad I had many layers on was due to the large amount of crap I shot in my drawers when I checked the main server log files this morning. Around 9:30, the floor admin came to me saying he...
