This article (related link) is a very readable discussion of some of the most interesting work we're doing at my company. 7:12am

Back at my home desk after a hard workout at the gym. Catching up on email and to-do's. 10:51am

Michelle and the kids are back from Clough State Park/Everett Lake. (related link) 2:55pm

81.5% of all e-mails sent in June were spam - (related link) - Really?! Only 81.5%? Some days it seems far worse. 4:27pm

A server peer to the one that hosts my site had to be tweaked yesterday because it was saturated just running SpamAssassin. 4:30pm

Been playing with the new last.fm music site in the background while reading tech specs. It seems really slow! 4:42pm

Using VPN & Remote Desktop to continue working downstairs while the kids watch the latest VeggieTales. Windows on a Mac iBook. I feel dirty! 5:39pm

Michelle's back from teaching her 4th fitness class this week. 1 more to go on Saturday. I hope her legs hold up. If not, I'll hold 'em. ;-) 7:26pm

Daniel is so proud that he's on page one hundred(!) of his Junie B. Jones book. When you're 7, it's a big deal. 8:00pm

Hi Scott -

That first link goes to the Guardian's 404 page. Was it truncated or something?

Cheers -

I like last.fm too. I recently found pandora.com Have you ever seen that one yet? I like it more than last.fm
