This weekend blamantin and Alex and djedi went camping. It was, in a word, fun! We hiked on a trail in Rocky Gap State Park (in western MD) that was 4.5 miles - quite a good workout! After swimming in the lake, We drove to some campgrounds and played games, roasted marshmallows (mmmmmmmm), etc. We had been a little worried about the weather, as there was a chance of rain, but the weather for the hike was pretty darn good, felt around 80 degrees or so. It ended up being pretty cold at night - luckily djedi and I had brought sweaters so we wore them to bed and huddled together to conserve heat, which worked decently well :-) I took a bunch of pictures that I'll put up soon.
I'm planning on writing a Facebook application as my next project. My thought was to make a "friend of a friend" sort of thing, like LiveJournal has (but you have to be paid or maybe plus to see it - sorry!) which shows people that lots of your friends have friended but you haven't. It seems like a good way to discover people on Facebook that you didn't realize were there, or people that you might be interested in meeting :-) Anyway, for various technical reasons step 1 is to upgrade my Apache web server from 1.3 to 2.0, so hopefully I can make that work tonight.
