April (and some from February) News and stuff....
April 27, 2000:
Well, you can read my 2 cents worth on the whole Cuban affair on the Opinion page (you didn't think I would let this slip by did you?) There's also another music and book review to read through. And believe it or not, I have finished the last song for my first collection (sort of), and should have it sent off for copyright purposes by the end of the week.

Got the taxes sent off, and despite my in-laws meddling in our finances, we still get enough back to cover our property taxes (my 5 year old suddenly acquired an investment portfolio that earned more than I did last year!). The demo recording continues slowly -- I actually have enough now to send off a CD to the Library of congress for copyrighting, though at $30 a pop I want that thing as full as possible. I've also revived a demo tape from my days with The Dusty Hughber Group -- I plan on adding a few bonus tunes for the CD, and re-mastering it (and maybe posting the music somewhere). Not much new, just a few clean-ups an updates, but at least this is new.
April 5, 2000:
I have been incredibly distracted of late, and I wish I could say it was for good purposes -- alas no. But I have regained my center, rediscovered my priorities, and managed to destroy a friendship. Like I said, it wasn't all good. But I am back again, and hopefully things will be getting back to normal -- or even better. This update has been pushed back several times, because I keep adding new stuff -- New Music review, new Book Review, an entire new World of Computers to visit, a new rant, and many other little updates. Also, I am trying out Macromedia's Dreamweaver -- in some ways it seems a bit easier to use than Frontpage, and supposedly it makes creating nifty HTML tricks easier too. We'll see. We're also rapidly approaching the end of 640X480 limits -- the new computers page just isn't doable in less than 800X600 -- sorry.
February 11, 2000:
As you can see, I'm falling back into my old bad habits -- 20 days since the last update. Oh well, the January bits-o-news have been copied off and tucked away on the Opinion page -- along with a new gripe I have yet to write. There's a new book review, and some edits to previous reviews. Lately, I've been an e-mailing fool -- old high school friends, pals from my bachelor days, and a cat named Felix who just dropped a line after crossing my path a week or so ago.
