Update: November 21st, 2003
Added a little program called wc to the site.
I wrote it.
It isn't anything fancy, but it is somewhat useful.
It gives you a word count for any plain text document.
It does some other stuff, too.
Updated the things you need to know.
It really does do some other stuff.
I'm serious.
It give you a line count, too!
And a number count.
And a character count.
And a non-text character count.

Updated my Blog.
Not much new, really.
Spent the weekend in the freezing wind.
So that was nice.
My boss is on vacation.
So that's nice.
Just got Opera 7.21.
Yep. You guessed it.
That's nice.
I like being able to have lots of windows open, but all in one window,
  so you can tab to each one, and then minimize the whole thing.
Signed up for my winter classes:
  Database Management and Design (CSC 352 A )
  Programming Languages & Compilers I (CSC 450 A )
Gonna be tough, but should be fun, too.
Yeah, you wish you could.
I didn't think so.

So, this is how you write a small PROLOG program.
PRO(gramming) LOG(ic) by the way.

listMinusLast([_X], [ ]).
listMinusLast([H|T1], [H|T2]) :- listMinusLast(T1, T2).

?- listMinusLast([a,b,c],X).

That takes the list a,b,c, removes the last element of the list
  and then returns a,b.
Now you understand what my problem is.
What's your excuse.
Ahh. I think I know what it is.
If someone where to give you another brain,
  it would sit in your head, very lonesome.
"My works are all stamped down into the sultry mud."

Re-started my Blog.
I have even posted to it.
We'll see how long it lasts this time!
Added some pictures from TCM
You do realize that I craft each of these bloody pages by hand, right?
You have no idea.
There are over 700 links on this site.
Each one, hand typed.
Aged in the finest beech wood barrels.
Drawn from the clearest and coldest mountain streams.
Then poured rough-shod right down the drain.
Because I don't like any of that.

Updated: Things you need to know.
heh. My good side.
It's good to know that there are a few ladies like Theresa and Melissa who are true geeks at heart!
It nearly makes me weep.
ok. Better now.
In case you didn't know it, you do now!
DST is over on Sunday.
Palecek, this means you!

Update: October 10th, 2003
Right. New page. Things you need to know.
Why do you need to know them?
Because I said you do.
Don't argue.
Just be assured that, I'm right.
Now, as Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger says, "Stop Whining".
Besides, you know it's going to be funny, and oh so worth it!

I had the makings and I smoked
    And wondered over different things,
  Thinkin' as how this old world joked
    In callin' only some men kings
  While I sat there a-blowin' rings.
Me? I was king of anywhere,
    Peggin' away at nothing, hard.
  Havin' no pet, particular care;
    Havin' no trouble, or no pard;
  Just me, filled up my callin, card.
One more thing.
  Why is it my fault?
  So maybe I try too hard
  But it's all because of this desire
  I just wanna be liked, I just wanna be funny
  Looks like the jokes on me
  So call me captain backfire.  John Mayer…

If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
  Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
    And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!  Rudyard Kipling…
I know I've used it before, but it is still an awesome piece of poetry.
If you've never read anything by Rudyard Kipling, might I suggest that you do so?
If you can read Rudyard Kipling - The Last of the Light Brigade; and not get shivers… well.
I've updated the Literature page.
Head! Paper! Now!
  Move that melon of yours and get the paper if you can!
  Haulin' that gargantuan cranium about!
  I'm not kidding, that boy's head's like Sputnik!
  Spherical, but quite pointy in parts.
  Well, that was off sides, wasn't it?
  He'll be crying himself to sleep tonight on his *huge* pillow!

She puts her quiet hands in mine
  Cause she's the brightest thing I got.  John Mayer…
The tiny spark of flame that resideth in my heart, which, by the slightest fanning of mine hand could have grown, has now, by that same black steel clad fist, been mercilessly extinguished.
Got new contacts today. Ahh... To see again.
Just got back from Grand Marais on a motorcycle trip.
It was awesome! No mosquitos, perfect weather, great drive, full moon, good friends.
Once again, proving everything that I've said about motorcycles is true. Heh

Tonight I&$39m tangled in my blanket of clouds
  Dreaming aloud.  Foo Fighters…
I used to be a waiter; I was fired for clearing tables.
  I was clearing them for take-off.
  I had them all lined up outside.
  People thought it was an outdoor cafe.
  I said no, these are leaving at three.
  They were going to fire me anyways, because I said I
  think that they should put the wrapper on a straw on
  the inside, because that's the part you don't
  want to get dirty.  Stephen Wright…

Take all your big plans
  and break ‘em.  John Mayer…
Looking back through time, you know,
  It's clear that I've been blind, I've been a fool…
  …And if you want it, come and get it, for cryin out loud.
  The love that I was, givin' you was, never in doubt.  David Grey….

Why you shouldn't mess with a tow rope behind a boat.
Ended up finishing the Torchlight 5K in about 18 minutes and 50 plus seconds.
I'd like to think the best of me
  Is still hiding
  Up my sleeve.  John Mayer…
Speaking of hiding things up my sleeve, I finally broke out a few php tricks.
Check them out on the Lyrics page.
It's a little trick to make adding content easier.

If I were creating a world, I wouldn't mess about with butterflies and daffodils.
I would've started with lasers; eight o'clock, day one.
How many camels have you spotted so far?
Ah, well so far Peter, up to the present moment, I've spotted nearly hmmm ohhhh nearly one.
Nearly one?
Ah, call it none. More…
Take my heart, take my eyes
I need them no more
If never again they fall
Upon the one I so adore

This page has been modified, update your bookmarks!
My RF600R is FOR SALE. See below for details!
You have a little over one shopping day to get your taxes done!
You may have noticed some changes to the site. I'll try and explain.
First: There are now only two "Images" on the main page.
The "You Are Here" in the background
and the XHTML 1.0.
Second: The main page is now valid to XHTML 1.0 transitional.
Which means: when they change the standard, this page should work.
Third: Changed the layout a bit more.
Fourth: Changed the Copyright notice from an "Image" to CSS.
Fifth: The main page is now a PHP document, so I can update everything faster.
The sections of the page can now be seperate documents, instead of one massive one.

  the end, the end, please for so the simple thing that could
  not be step the next scene betwixt and between enough, we will fall.

A little Zen
  headed your way
  You'll get it
  halfway down the interstate
  Four days from now
  It all goes clear
  A Buddhist riff
  for your inner ear
A bit more Van Halen for you; Me Wise Magic.
Here's the problem:
When I woke up late in the afternoon
  She had taken all the things from inside his room
  I found myself naked in the middle of the floor
  She had taken the bed and the chest of drawers
  The mirror, the TV, the new guitar cord
  My remote control and my old skateboard
  She robbed us blind - she took all we owned
  And the boys blamed me for bringing her home
A little bit of Beastie Boys - She's Crafty.

Woman... woe-man... whoooa-man.
She was a thief, you got to believe,

I want to to be Betty's Barney.

"Never will, says the vision? But I always woke and found it
  an empty mockery; and I was desolate and abandoned - my
  life dark, lonely, hopeless - my soul athirst and forbidden to
  drink - my heart famished and never to be fed. Gentle, soft dream,
  nestling in my arms now, you will fly, too, as your sisters have
  fled before you."Jane Eyre
A mixture of remorse and despair.
Regret, dismay, dread, shame, numb fury and a sort of generalized anxious unhappiness.
Deep unhappiness.
What! a speaker is but a prater; a rhyme is but a ballad.
I cannot look greenly, nor gasp on my eloquence,
  nor I have no cunning in protestation.
