Last night, at about midnight, I was attacked while approaching my parked car at a bus exchange in North Vancouver. I was returning from downtown and was on my way home.

GNOME 3.0 is due for release April 16 and I’m pretty excited by it. So I finally decided to check out first-hand how it’s progressing.

And the wireless card I’ve got in my desktop is a little old and pretty cheap. Basically, I’ve had to battle with a… Continue reading DIY Wireless Booster
Did this FlipNote animation on the bus, yesterday. The pumpkins, this year: I did the one on the left (least effort!). ^.^ And it should resemble the pumpkin in the FlipNote animation, above. 🙂 Happy Halloween!
Last weekend, I finally got a car. I’m not a car guy and know next to nothing about them, so I just mentioned some criteria to the car people in my family and asked them to tell me about it if they figured it was a good deal and fit my criteria. My primary criteria… Continue reading New (Used) Car: 1993 Honda Accord EX-R
