Good weekend! Got a chance to relax some, and as a result I'm declaring myself over the stomach virus I had last week. Not because there are necessarily no effects left, but if I don't declare victory, the virus wins!

Things of note:

I was about to give up on the whole dental site thing since I hadn't heard back from my guy for quite a while. Then out of the blue he emailed me on Friday, and we started working things out, and he's paid me a bit already as we start to make the site go live. So, more work for me, but I got money! My first earned money for programming that isn't my job!

Baltimore is the heroin, trade (meaning prostitution in this context), or syphilis capital of the world. Wow, that's not good!

Using the Google Calendar APIs, I created an event on my Palm calendar. Hooray! I still need to make it delete all events before adding events, and also do repeating/all-day events. The latter requires deciphering a string like

DTSTART;TZID=America/Chicago:20060420
DURATION:PT86400S
RRULE:FREQ=YEARLY
BEGIN:VTIMEZONE
TZID:America/Chicago
X-LIC-LOCATION:America/Chicago
BEGIN:STANDARD
TZOFFSETFROM:-0500
TZOFFSETTO:-0600
TZNAME:CST
DTSTART:19701025T020000
RRULE:FREQ=YEARLY;BYMONTH=10;BYDAY=-1SU
END:STANDARD
BEGIN:DAYLIGHT
TZOFFSETFROM:-0600
TZOFFSETTO:-0500
TZNAME:CDT
DTSTART:19700405T020000
RRULE:FREQ=YEARLY;BYMONTH=4;BYDAY=1SU
END:DAYLIGHT

Hmm, actually that doesn't look as bad as I remembered. Good!

I put up new pictures for this quarter - includes pictures of Christi and David's housewarming party, Timmy's baptism and Peter William Gregory.

Also saw Thank You for Smoking, which I was not too excited about but turned out to be very good. It's just satirical enough that you can sort of identify with the main character. I'd recommend it!

Going to try to track down some bugs in the huge code checkin I did Friday...

Oh, the other thing - I tried out for the summer musical on Saturday and got a part! I'm Lance, a kid who's afraid of everything. I think I can do that :-)

Sweet! Make sure to hook me up with some heroin.

Keep the syphilis to yourself though.

ALso, yay for feeling better, getting paid, and summer musical!

I wish I understood the bit about creating a Palm event on Google Calendar, but it sounds REALLY cool anyway! :)

I can't wait to work with you on the summer musical this year! I think it's going to be one of the best shows yet! :)

I've been trying to look at your pictures, but I keep getting "Problem loading page" errors, or they just load REALLY infernally slowly. :(

I looked at the pics and they were there, but they were definately loading much slower than normal.
