html zone

As some of you may or may not know, I have been doing a website for a dear friend of mine in Mendo county who's trying to start a quiet B&B. At her request, it's pretty low tech and not all that flashy, but it gets the info accross. Some of the formatting still needs to be fixed (pictures squished together, etc) but it's up and running. As she picked out picky fonts and I did a quick job of getting it up and going, be sure to view it with Firefox for the full effect. Much improvement to follow.

Flickr genious

I have to admit that whoever the people are that are behind the scenes at Flickr, and that actually make the funtioning of the site possible, are friggin' brilliant. While the Flickr site is down they are holding a contest. A contest! Instead of the stupid - we're sorry we can't help you blurb, they have put up two big dots. And if you print them out, color them in, take a picture of them, and post them on Flickr, you could win a pro account with them. So basically, as a Flickr usuer, I could potentially spend the time that the site is down calmly humming a little tune and coloring (and trying to stay in the lines), instead of fuming and stomping around. All in the hopes of obtaining something that's not really gonna cost Flickr a penny. So they promote their site, apease their fans, and give me a sense that they're gonna give me something all because they got too much data to store in their data centers. Amazing. Again.Who comes up with that idea?

Mice and Taxidermy

When I moved to San Francisco, I heard a rumor that there was a store that you could go to that, among other things, had stuffed mice in various outfits. Yes, mice. Today I recieved an email that was forwarded to me by my boss that was an announcement to participate in a mouse taxidermy class. I live in a crazy city. Here's more info. Have fun.

disturbing thought of the day

what have we come to when you are the last car to pull up to a four-way stop sign, and none of the other cars are going because they're all on their phones?
